Hey guys...I'm currently a 1L at Temple finishing up finals. If you guys have any questions regarding where to live, places to hang out, etc etc... feel free to ask away. I'm gonna use this as my procrastination tool, haha.A few things... to the KC guy... i'm from TN (home to superior ribs)...i can show you all the places to get ribs in this town, haha... i also make my own mean slab.... Temple's average age is always 26... i think they factor in the evening division which is inherently older... all my friends are between the ages of 19-26. I'm 23 so it's probably a self selective crowd. If you're a youngin', you won't feel weird.Center City is the place to live (although alot of students live in the art museum area). I'd stick to places that are close to the ORANGE line (which runs north to the law school). If you get a roommate, rent is not unbearable. If you have questions about areas of town... just leave a line. Enjoy your pre-law experience.
MReilly...it looks like you're right...I spoke with Johanne and she indicated that while it wasn't a 100% guarantee of a seat, it was a 99.99%. The way she put it was "the admission committee wouldn't have made the offer if they hadn't planned on making good on it".
