Any younger people going to Temple??

Hey, from what I gather I'm going to be one of the younger ones this fall since I'm only 22. Is anyone else coming straight from undergrad?

Anyone else get a letter about being named First Year Scholar? The letter is kind of vague as to what this really is...I mean I'm not complaining since its added scholarship money..I just didn't know if anyone knew anything else or has one  :-\

Is anyone planning to use that roommate list? I'm thinking that I can prob afford a studio but it might be more fun to live in a 2br with someone else. I was just wondering if anyone actually uses the referral thing through Temple or not...

Also my friend thats going to Cornell joined a facebook group for the 2010 class...has someone made one for temple or am I the only tool that plays on facebook? :)

I'll be there this fall (assuming I don't get off the waitlist at UMD...who can turn down in-state tuition?). Either way I'm excited about actually having made a decision  :) ASW was pretty nice and I can definitely see myself there.

I'm still waiting on Hawaii and the final word from Northeastern since they deferred me to the regular app pool...I've pretty much decided on Temple, but still it would be nice to hear either way...

I was visiting the day the new rankings were released and here is what the prof for the class I was sitting in said. More than half the reason their rank fell was due to their drop in employment 9 months after graduation. He said that most schools make this number up or employ grads to the university at like 8.5 months and let them go a few weeks later to boost their numbers. He said USD doesn't do that...also he said that the stat would go back up next year since 92% of grads had jobs. the other main reason he said the ranking dropped is the score that other attorneys/judges/etc give the school. No real response to this other than he said since USD hadn't been to the final four in awhile, many outside of CA hadn't heard of it really and thought it was a regional law school, scoring it lower.

Idk if its a fluke or not... but thats what the prof said, make of it what you will...

I was really impressed with the whole day. I'm planning on visiting U San Diego this weekend and then making my choice, but USD is going to really have to sell it bc Temple was awesome

Congrats!!!!!  :)

So here is my dilemma. I'm going to be senior. I've done reasonably well in my classes but am not a big one for talking in class. Its not that I'm not prepared or don't know what's going on, its just that unlike many of my other classmates, i don't talk during class to hear the sound of my own voice or try to impress the professor with my many travels of the world. I only talk/answer questions on occasion, but I'd like to think that when I do they're insightful.

Anyways, because of my general quietness, I haven't made a huge impression on many of my profs, and only really feel comfortable asking one and I know I need at least 2 academic LORs. Should I just ask for LORs from profs that taught courses I did well in in the past and hope for the best? Or should I wait for my fall classes and really try and make a good impression in the first month or so and then ask them to write a LOR in Oct/Nov?

Any advice at all would be helpful...thanks!!
