Reviews, Visits, and Rankings / Re: Temple..experiences?

I went to Temple as an Undergrad--grad May 02.

I had a VERY positive experience. 

I started out at what I thought would a good fit for me--Connecticut College.  Relatively prestigious...yeah right.  Not a good fit--felt like I was the poorest kid there, and everyone on campus seemed to be driving a saab or a volvo.

After I let the wind out of my sails (or, took three years off to work full-time and get get my head straight), I went to Temple.

My classes were more difficult, my professors were more willing to give personal attention, it was SO much cheaper (in-state here).  I felt as if I'd received a first-class education.

Temple has vastly improved in the past 15 years.  My sister attended 1993 to 1996, and the positive change were just beginning to take shape.  By the time I graduated, the facilties were very good and the campus was safer--had been beautified, too.

I would NOT be concerned about crime at Temple--they've got the third largest police department in the state.  And the officers are the type that will walk / drive you to your dorm / the train.

And, if you intend to obtain employment in the Philly area, Temple has grown to be considered 2nd only to Penn State for undergard and outranks many national public schools in many graduate and professional programs.

-Abortion - Pro-choice
-Death Penalty - Vehemently against
-War in Iraq - Nonsense.  Utter nonsense.  And more keep dying every day. 
-War in General - Rarely for.
-Gun Control - For, but we need to restrict manufacture, also, if we expect to make acquiring a gun more difficult.  I'd say melt down all handguns and eliminate their manufacture.
-Legalization of drugs - Yes, with very few restrictions.  Save money on jails / prisions; spend more on rehabilitation
-Filibusters - For
environment - for, but we'd be better served spending our resources on human rights, not plant rights
taxes - more progressive, eliminate W's cut, drive up taxes for the wealthy
N.C.L.B. - utter nonsense
gay rights - for, across the board, including marriage
- Social security - for, but place the benefits on a sliding scale and no benes for those with incomes over 100K per yr
- health care - single-payer system

This thread is hilarious...
