Avoid the Chinese food truck near the undergrad student center. Your intestine's will thank you. :)

Hi Kristal,

I was complete on 2/28 and just got my second complete yesterday 3/31. I called admissions and they said 8-14 weeks. I reiterated Temple is my first choice and that deadlines were fast approaching and they kindly said they understood, and it takes 8-14 weeks. :(

Hey, to the people who decided on Temple for sure, where are you guys looking to live? I'm coming from California, and I originally was thinking about grad student housing on campus. But I heard from a friend about how terrible on campus housing is, so I was wondering about Center City and the surrounding areas, and what you guys are looking into. Also I was wondering about what you heard regarding safety of the subways at night when commuting to off campus. Thanks!

I live in King of Prussia right now, and plan on staying here. I'll be taking regional rail into the city everyday, at least for the first year. The people I've talked to said that living in the burbs isn't a bad idea. But I guess its personal preference

Hey, just wanted to reassure you about the safety of the subways at night and give you some suggestions for housing. I'm in undergrad in Philly and have lived outside the city all my life. The subways are pretty much safe at night. Temple is on the Broad Street Line, which is the major north/south line in the city and one of the busiest. Yeah, some stops are kind of dingy, and there's the stray derelict hanging around but I have never, in 5+ years of riding the subway in Philly, had any trouble. Temple is 5 stops from City Hall, which is also on the Market Frankford line. Between those two axes, you're pretty much within walking distance of anyway in Center City.

My cousin, a Temple undergrad, lives about 3 blocks east of campus and his town house was broken into over winter break last year. Also, his car window was smashed after he (stupidly) left his GPA unit and ipod laying on the front seat. However, I have a friend who lives about 1 block north of campus right on Broad Street, and he has had no problems at all. As far as living off campus, Center City is definitely going to be your most expensive option. I've found a couple studio apartments on craigslist and other sites from around $900. Cheaper options are university city (farther from Temple than CC), manayunk, east falls, fishtown, old city (which is adjacent to Center City). Also, if you bring a car (it's also served by the regional rail), Conshohocken is a pretty nice area about a 20 minute drive NW of Temple. Conshohocken and Manayunk are really hilly, and a lot of my friends have gotten stuck at home in the winter-- just saying. KOP is nice. Also, the mainline (ardmore, merion, bala cynwyd, wynnewood) are beautiful areas and right on the R5, but pricey

Just breaking your balls.

To the topic at hand, I'm in nearly the same situation as Evrydyhonestliar (living in KoP, not moving if I go to Temple). Of course if certain California schools decide to extend offers...I have a house for sale.

The Korean truck on 12th and Berks was always my favorite. Make sure you get noodles, not rice. Richie's is also good, but that dude irks me with his overt lust for undergrads.

Accepted, deposit sent. Done with this whole process now.

It's just really really hard to pass up in-state tuition with local credibility here.

Hope to see you all there!

I went complete 2/9 and still haven't heard anything, should I expect to hear soon or expect to wait even longer?

Also, I'm currently living outside of the US and am hoping to get back around mid-August. Since I'm from DE and my parents live in Wilmington, so if I get in, I was thinking about just commuting in for a while since I won't really have time to apartment hunt when I get home, good idea or should I try to move closer ASAP? Are there usually people looking for roommates mid-year, between 1st and 2nd semester?

I think you should hear soon. I was complete around the same time and heard late last week.

I've spoke to the admissions office a lot lately and they make it sound like they'll be making decisions continuously until may-ish.

Also, I'm going to be commuting from bucks (north of philly) for most of 1L probably. From what I understand many people commute to Temple. Doesn't wilmington have a SEPTA station?

Hey guys, just got in today. Pretty surprised and excited. I have a question: My family has a summer home in PA. Is there anyway I could establish residency for instate tuition? I'm not currently on the home's deed, but could be if needed.

I feel like I'm the last person who'll be accepted before the wait list. 4/4; they really took their time with me. :mrgreen:

Thank you very much. I have to do a bit more research, but I'm leaning toward Temple at the moment.

They did this for me as well, I sent in said info the next day, and about 9 days later they rendered a decision.
