I went to this school because of the scholarship offer and the business school is well respected. I also went because of all the connections it has to the city. There's also a lot to do in the city so you won't be bored.
It's a well-rounded curriculum but I find myself pretty bored in my classes. Most of the Gen Ed's are just busy work and they just want you to pass their classes so everything is curved and the teacher's don't really care about you.
I loved the biology program and heard great things about it and also about the school itself. My boyfriend attended here when I met him and he loved it and I came to love it also when I'd visited and he would show me around.
I absolutely love it. It's well written and well taught by my professors. I believe they do an excellent job with the material and make everyone feel much better about asking questions or asking to explain things again.
It was the only one I got into at the time. I didn't like the first school I was at and desperately wanted to get out and this was the only school I could transfer to so I took it because it was better than my old school.
The course choices for the major are not good. I don't feel well prepared for any jobs in the future. Temple is not known or well for this major. The courses I feel like are not the main core courses that would be needed I feel like it is more about the nitty gritty specialization courses that are not very important.
I picked a temple because I wanted to learn in the city as opposed to somewhere with less opportunity. It's close to where my house is and it's easy for me to visit my parents and vice versa. It's nice to be directly linked with the Philadelphia Orchestra and the Kimmel center for performance and education because you know you're getting the best education from the best teachers.
I think it's nicely formatted to set me up for a career as well as get the ball running right as I start freshman year. Other programs I saw weren't like that. It mixes my gen ED's with my major classes which is amazing.
I love the program and the opportunity to meet new people. The city is a great place to learn new things and explore. I wanted a new experience and to try different things so Philly was the best place for it.
The curriculum is amazing and the teachers make an out of school experience. We practice real-life skills as well as a learning theory. This is a good mix to being well rounded. I think if we did more theory it would be boring.
I grew up in Philadelphia and wanted to study journalism as well as history for the Bicentennial year 1976. I worked on the college newspaper and wrote the history of a nearby town for a daily newspaper and got hired as a reporter.
Temple Law School was ranked 47th of all schools in America and number two for its trial advocacy program of which I worked my butt off and got an award on graduation day. I also took part in both the moot court and 'Mock Trial' competition with other law schools.
I picked Temple University because it is in the city of Philadelphia. This city is amazing for health care professionals and Temple University provides the best education for students. It is also filled with diversity and networking opportunities.
I think my course curriculum provides the most experience for students. We are required to complete to internships, and both are planned into our academic plan. This is something most other universities do not do.
It's affordable and I love the city, I got a good scholarship and I loved the energy of the campus when I visited. The people are so nice, the professors are great and the classes are compelling.
I think it's great. We have GenEd requirements that help all the students to gain a real breadth of knowledge. We also, of course, have courses designed for any majors or minors we may decide to pursue.
Research opportunity mostly, they have an impressive MRI scanner on campus as well as several EEG machines and eye trackers. The professors here are also fairly well known for their research and mentorship which was important to me.
It could definitely be improved upon. They advertise cognitive neuroscience but don't have many resources for it. They also don't bring outside speakers in cog neuro either - all of our talks tend to be by behavioral neuroscientists which makes it a little difficult to figure out a path for me.
I am a PA resident, so I committed to Temple for the in-state tuition rates. I applied to Fordham University in New York City and was accepted, but the cost ($70k) was far too high for me to justify attending. I liked that Temple was close to my childhood home, and that I could also travel to NYC or Center City Philadelphia easily.
I think that the curriculum is extremely easy - at least in core classes. It is geared towards ALL Temple students, including international/transfer. I think that the Business program is great, but needs to be more challenging in order to stay competitive.
