Where should I go next fall? / Re: Temple's location?
« on: June 20, 2008, 09:22:22 AM »
I visited last June.  Admittedly, it was after classes were out, but it made me think "commuter campus".  Nobody seemed to live within walking distance -- they all lived in nicer parts of Philly that were some distance away.  That makes the campus less of a central location or focus.  May not matter to you, but that was definitely a negative to me.

I know what you mean; the extent to which you want a "campus feel" is definitely a factor to consider.  I went to a very isolated, rural school for UG and I was ready for city life.   :)

This pisses me off to no end.

I guess these bastards don't like it when the table is turned?  Some schools left me waiting for 9 months on a decision, but I can't give myself a little extra time to pick between offers?

Note:  because I wanted to begin planning my life, I withdrew from the school at which I put down a deposit the second I received the better offer.  If I wanted to wait until June 15th, there is no reason why I should not have been able to.  I withdrew out of consideration for people on the WL and because I wanted to begin planning my move.  If the schools can't get their f-ing decisions out in a timely manner, why the hell should we??

I will be going there in the fall.  It's bad, but a few things:

1)  The immediate surroundings are very safe because Temple has its own police force that is one of the biggest in the entire state of PA.

2)  Housing is more affordable in Philly than in other east coast cities so you can live in nice neighborhoods and still not be very far from Temple.  It helps that there is a bus/train/subway station literally right in front of the school.

3)  No one I spoke to seemed to have experienced any problems, but they do not recommend living in the North Philly neighborhood.

All I know is I can't afford to visit the schools I'm interested with gas approaching $4. So unless I strike oil in the next few months, I'm going to be applying blind.

Approaching?  I wish gas were $4 here!!   :-\

I visited three schools, including the one I will be attending, and I think it was extremely helpful.

so you, but nobody mention it until now.

Maybe so, but at least I'm not running for president.

This sums up my attitude, and where I will be come November.  They're both awful.

According to my school, the funds become available the first week of class.

General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Philadelphia Schools

I'm not sure which board I should post this on, but I thought I'd try here.  I'm going to be looking for a roommate, male or female, in Philadelphia (I will be at Temple) and was wondering if anyone from any of the Philly area schools is also and would like to exchange emails and see if we might be a good match?  I figured I'd try LSD before Craigslist haha.

Describe your ailment.

:( :( :(

The entry-level job strain of senioritis.  Which I actually think is worse than actual senioritis.  At least senior year of college I was wasted all the time.

Tag.  I have a similar question.  Has anyone contacted anyone from their undergraduate alumni network?  My UG is known for having very "loyal" alumni, but I feel awkward emailing/calling and asking questions of people I have never met...
