    SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads)
    I wasn't able to find a thread for this year's applicants.

    Good luck everyone! Hopefully some of us will be able to meet each other! :)

    I haven't received any information from Temple yet, but that isn't surprising. Based on last year's thread (look at 2016 instead of 2017 for early cycle) it appears we might expect responses a little later than other schools.

    Just got the supplemental through email. Looks like it's just a fee, no secondary app.

    4th Batch.

    Same, except I am 1st batch. Did anyone notice the time stamp on the email? Somebody had either a really late night or an early morning. Glad to hear something though, I was getting concerned.

    Yea my timestamp was like 5:30am (east coast)... but didn't show up in my mailbox until about 9:30am.


    What's up with the application disclosure? Who else will they discuss our app's with outside the committee?

    I just received the email as well, 3rd batch here!

    I was wondering though, for the supplemental what do we put for the section, "list the people you give permission to discuss your application"?

    Got it here as well. I think it went out to anyone who has applied prior to this week, I was first batch though. Got the same 5:28 am time stamp, received it at 9:29. Nice to see there's no secondary. And for the "list the people you give permission to discuss your application" question, leave it blank and on the box on the left select "Anyone who inquires about my application" for the standard reply.

    I love how it says, "Due to the high volume of applications, the review process continues through June. Therefore, you may not hear from us regarding your status until that time." Even though it's practically August.

    Instead, could we just write the name of our university in the box on the left?

    You could... but you might as well put "whoever inquires about my application can read it" or whatever. Only people you want looking at it will be. It's not like some random joe is going to go in and ask about your app

    I know for a fact that they don't send it out to everyone. Sometimes they look at your GPA and DAT scores and if it doesn't meet what they're looking for right away they'll send you a rejection letter ASAP without sending a secondary.

    Got my supplemental today via e-mail. Third batch, btw.

    Thanks so much! I haven't taken my Dat yet but my gpa is good, i think. The fact that they don't send sups to everybody is kinda good. I really like this school. The clinical rotations are one of the best in the country :) + philadelphia is a nice city to spend 4 years of ur life :)

    Where did you learn that they only send the supplementary application to a select group of applicants?

    Im pretty sure they send it to EVERYONE who applied...they process completed applications only after they steal more of your money.

    E-mails usually display the date and time of when they were sent, which I call a time-stamp. I made the comment simply for conversation :)

    I see but I don't see two different times. I just see 9:29 AM and that's it haha. I am probably missing something here.

    It will only show the time it is sent. The person may not have realized it showed up in their inbox til 9:30 or it wasn't actually received on their end until 9:30. You are asking questions about something very irrelevant.

    Hey guys, I received the temple supplemental the other day, and was very confused about the section that asks

    Please print the Money Order number in the following box:

    to which number are they referring to?

    thanks!

    Literally, it's asking for the check number. Each check in your checkbook is numbered and that number is typically found in the top left corner. I believe that is what the form is asking for.

    I got this email, I suspect they sent it to students who were previously rejected by Temple.

    Nothing yet, but I suspect it will still be another week before I hear anything. I mailed out the material at the end of July.

    No. You should worry after 2-4 weeks + a few days for mail. I sent mine the day I got the supplemental and my check still hasn't cashed. I wished you could pay online since the post office is unpredictable/unreliable haha. I got/sent mine July 30.

    Haven't received anything? No supplemental? My application was mailed 7/26 (5th batch) and on 7/30 I received supplemental..I believe everyone gets supplemental because it seems to be automatic system sending it out to those that submitted by last week of july...and I am LOW stats..you should call them
