    How long does it usually take for Temple to call you to say your accepted after an interview? I was told 1 week, but it's been nearly 2.

    well i got an interview about 6 hours after i submitted the application (same day) which was about a month and a half ago... i scheduled my interview a month later because it didn't fit in my schedule... as for the interview, you don't need to have all of your letters there, but it's good to at least have one.....

    so its ok to give lor's after the interview (say 2 or 3 weeks or a month) right.
    what are my chances of getting accepted there with a 3.5 overall g.p.a 3.52 science g.p.a and a 23 mcat, one more thing how were you invited for an interview email? phone call?

    i was invited by a phone call from the admissions director, really nice guy.... with your academic credentials you chances look good, but I've noticed that you have showed some interest in the DO/MD programs, which is fine, but don't treat podiatry as a backup, because your chances will be slim then... remember, they do reject about a third of the people they interview

    and yes it's fine to give some of the lor's weeks later.... when they interview you though, they want something to refer to other than your essay, at least that's what my interviewer pointed out

    I just wanted to let you know that I recieved a scholarship at TUSPM for 12,000. Then if in the top 10 percent of the class for the remaining years, 6,000. So they give fairly generous scholarships at TUSPM. Furthermore, my stats are similar to yours, I also had alot of volunteer experience abroad, I wish you good luck in your applications!

    Hey buddy,
    So we all got that same scholarship?
    I dont know if I am going to attend, we will see what happens, I have a few interviews comming up and will see what happens with those, geographically, it might be difficult to get up to Philly, even though, for everybody viewing and thinking about TUSPM, it is a great school in an AWSOME city, one of the better cities I have ever been to.

    I'm not so sure that I would call that "generous". So, what you are saying is you get a scholarship the first year, but you have to be in the top 10% to get a much smaller one the second year. If there are 100 students and you are eleventh in the class, then you don't get it?

    I'd have to say that there are a lot of things I have heard that I like about TUSPM, but that is not one of them.
