Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Re: Temple 1L - Taking questions

Sorry to take so long.  Let's see...
In-state tuition is possible in the second year, but you must completely sever your relationship with previous state. Get drivers liscence, register car, lease or purchase a residence, file taxes here, etc.  You may not have any property, bank accounts, or insurance in other states.

I like pretty much everything here, although there are a few professors I would not recommend.

Macs are fine for wireless, but you can not use them for exams, PC only.

Yes I have a job for the summer, it is a work study position with a public defenders office.

The above is correct.  The older buildings on campus are actually really attractive, including the old temple.

Thought I might revive this thread.  Any new Temple information out there?

I think that the reason is is often more diffciult to exceed at a lower rankied school has to do with the grading curve.  If you look at the attrition rates of low tied school, they are often terribly high.  You must be in the top of the class to have real job oppurtuinites when you get out.  It is simply statitistically more difficult to get top 5% at a third tier than top 25% at a top 16 school.  At A higher ranked school, employers may recruit much deeper into the class, thus meaing the studetns aren't as likely to be so cut-throat.  In the extreme cases like yale, class rank becomes even less important in terms of employabiliy.

I got my acceptance letter yesterday.  I applied at deadline, so I expected the wait.

I am still waiting also, but I just beat the deadline.  The admission office told me yesterday that I was in review, and I should get a deision next week.

Just out of curiosity, what was your financial offer from Temple?

Just out of curiosity, why these two schools?  You seem to have decent numbers, why not U of Tenn or Alabama?  There are lots of other south-eastern schools that would give you good options after LS.  Are you attending in 2004 or is this info for next year?
