Bad experience with Temple

My application process to Temple has been pretty bad. First, I went to a tour in the summer and the tour was boring, and the guide was lame. I applied on August 30 got all of my required materials in at least 4 weeks ago and the website says they haven't recieved my transcript. I emailed the admission office and it took a week for them to get back to me and they didn't even answer my question. I called the admissions office and I waited on hold for 10 minutes only to be given an ambiguous answer from a rude lady. This has not been a pleseant process. Good thing Temple was my safety, I am not even considering going there now. Plus, they can't update their website to track your applications status. They keep delaying. Get on the ball!

    I agree - I've been accepted to some schools already over 1 month ago, and everytime I check Temple's site, they are updating their check admissions page... even if I do get accepted, I have already decided on Univ of Missouri - I got the Mizzou Heritage Scholarship - about 40% scholarship - and the campus is beautiful, the admissions folks very personable and attentive, and they have lots of engineering majors including biological/biomedical which is what I am going to major in.

    Temple has never been 'good' with admissions. Supposedly I heard people will really start hearing about around November 15th, but thats just speculation. And like you guys, Temple is just a backup for me so it means nothing to me.

    My d called the admissions office today and was on hold for 15 minutes and she finally had to hang up because she had to go to work. The application site says Incomplete - need transcript and app fee, but we know they already received both because the check - which the school sent with her transcript - has already cleared my bank! Her app was done in mid October.

    How long did it take you guys to get your Temple ID things to check application status? I applied 3 days ago and still nothing.

    The reason why everyone's applications are messed up is because they switched the system recently and everyone's applications got messed up. They said they didn't receive my transcript, but they really did. So, if it says on you application status that they didn't receive something they probably did but it's backed up. I applied oct 4th and got in dec 7th. Hope this helped!
