yea I see ND rated like #23, so for half tuition if you really like it there, then I would say go there, but dont let the niegborhood around temple make you go somewhere else, I went to lasalle like 5 mins noth of there, a kindof bad nieghborhood but the school itself is very good. Within a 15 minute drive you can be in nice parts of the city, the suburbs, or to NJ, some of which is very nice, like my home town of Chery Hill , which is like the 8th safest town in the country. Or you could also be in Camden, NJ, the most dangerous city in the country. If you have any Q's about philly let me know, I would say if you plan to live where ND alums work then go there, thats probably worth the half tuition loss, I am curious what you hated about Temple, if it was just the niergborhood, or something about the school itself. because the school itself is vey good academically, and anyone with a full ride there that I know would take it. My friend who got a 160 is trying to get in there or villanova... with no scholarship, hes from Cherry Hill too, a very nice area.
