Temple / Re: Temple Class of 2010 (entering in Fall 2007)

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? :)

Facebook eh...I can only handle one social networking site and since I'm a bit older I've gone with Myspace. Facebook wasn't around back in my University days. Back in those days we used a rudimentary internet site called Friendster. Friendster eventually eroded into the fringe following the outbreak of the Great Social Newtorking War of 2004. At this time many of us Friendsters became wandering gypsies void of an Internet home. We roamed aimlessly about the Internets searching for our lost Friendster refugees. Eventually, many of us found sanctuary within the dominant site of the time: Myspace. However, in the time since the end of the First Great Social Networking War things have changed. Myspace has transformed into an oligarchy owned by Rupert Murdoch and many of its' members have become alienated by the shift. Competition from Facebook has left many analysts fearful of another great Social Networking War and new social networking sites join the frenzy every day. It is a tense time for us social networking site people. Tense times indeed. To commit to another site and develop a new online persona now is too risky.  :o

Hi everyone!  Just mailed my Temple deposit so I just wanted to say hi.  My name is Danielle, I did my undergrad in psychology at Carnegie Mellon University and have been working in Albuquerque, NM in mental health for the past two years while getting a masters degree in professional counseling.  I am so looking forward to Temple!  I am originally from NY, so no instate tuition as of now but I am engaged and will be married in August.  Since my fiance will be working full time and we are planning on buying a home, I am hoping for in-state tuition as well.  I am planning on studying health law but I am very interested in trial advocacy and international law as well.  Looking forward to meeting everyone!

Another New Mexican going to Temple and on this board no-less...that's pretty strange. I'm currently outside of Sana Fe and I can't wait to get the hell out of here and into the city. I will miss the food and the views.

I'm gonna move out there in late July/early August. I'm looking for places in and around the Center City or the University City area, but none of the places I've contacted will start filling an August lease until June. I've found what appear to be liveable places in the area ranging from $600-850/month. I won't have a car, so I'm looking to live close to the SEPTA.

This site seems to be the most promising:

Does anyone know exactly how hard it is to qualify for in-state tuition at Temple Law? I'll be moving from Florida, living off-campus in Pennsylvania (probably Phildelphia County).

I read some info about this that says it's subjective. You put together a list of evidence that shows you really intend to stay in Pennsylvania after graduation (register car in PA, register to vote in PA, etc.) and submit your request for in-state status.

If the prospects look bleak, I might be able to rely on this fact... My father is planning to give me some PA farmland that's been in the family for generations. He's been talking about doing this in the next year or so -- for reasons completely unrelated to me attending Temple. But, the tax implications of this make me wary.

Any insights?

I asked the admissions office this very question and the information above is pretty accurate. They said a permanent job offer is a guarantee for in-state tuition as is owning land/property.

I will be attending Temple Law in the fall. I look forward to a challenging experience and I'm especially attracted to the school for its' writing program and I hope to write on to one of the journals. I don't know too much about Philly (I'm from New Mexico,vis Oregon, via Kansas), so I'm excited to get there and check it out.
