edited November 2012 in Temple University
I applied to Temple in late october as an international student for the spring 2013 semester and sent my application materials a few days later. as TUportal doesn't seem to update for me, I called their office this week to see if everything got to them okay (I had sent everything by courier and I have the name of the person at their office who signed for it); they confirmed that the address I sent it to was correct, but also told me that nothing had been received and, when I gave them the name of the person who signed for it, told me that no one by that name works at their office. their only advice for me was to wait a while and see what happens which, as an international student who has so much to figure out before moving, is quite frustrating!

how long do you think I should I wait before contacting them again? for anyone who has applied to temple: how long did it take them to process your materials? how long does it usually take to receive a decision?

    just incase this is relevant to anyone: they received my transcripts on the 5th of November, and my application status changed to 'complete for review' today (the 12th of November).
