Congratulations! I'm sorry I can't say the same but if you don't mind me asking, what was your impression of Temple and did you apply to any other podiatric schools? I'm guessing that you have some background of podiatric medicine considering the fact that TUSPM requires a letter of rec from a podiatric physician. Any information you can offer on DPM programs and what you know about the field would be great. Thanks and congratulations again! :)

......I was accepted to the class of 2008, too! I was accepted to the undergrad college, but opted for another school. I shadowed a DPM at Yale-New Haven Hospital, and he said that Temple's academics are pretty much number one.

One of the residents that I shadowed was a third-year from Temple. Anyways, Good luck! :luck:

Yeah, I was hoping to stay on campus there at TUSPM just for convenience. When did you find out about your acceptance?
Where are you now? What were your stats?
Im in iowa right now, but im from va beach, va.
I had a 3.2 GPA and 18s on the DAT.
I hope there are still rooms available in the dorms.

Well congratulations!! I applied to podiatric medical school and osteopathic medical school. I am from the west coast, so naturally my first choice was California School of Podiatric Medicine at Samuel Merritt ( Oakland/SF). I got in!!! Yeah, but now I am deliberating over osteo and podiatry. What made all of you choose podiatry??

Hey Jeff,

It just dawned on me that your probably the same guy posting on "the podiatry forum". Congrats on your acceptance, its great to have your enthusiasm spreading across the boards.

Check out the other thread Looking for DPM info for some input on why some people chose podiatry.

Thanks KmB247,
I think every pre pod kid or anyone that is looking into the field seriously should know what they are in for and this profession should not be overlooked.

How are your classes going by the way??
Where are you at?

Hey Jeff, I'm trying to get a dorm room in Temple. As soon as I get the application for the room I'll go on-line and apply. I went to Iowa too! Very impress with their organization but I wasn't impress with their clinic..............the area is kinda dull too (nothing personal to ppl. from Des Moines Uni., great school though)
I guess we'll see each other in Temple........when are you moving there? I'm moving there mid August.

Anyways, lemme know if u're interested in hanging out before school starts.

Sup guys!

Just want to say that after some deliberation I have chosen Temple as well. I will be mailing my deposit and other materials very soon!
I think we made the right choice... "Kick - ass" clinic, MD style curriculum, and in Philly!

Any body else hear about their academic prowess???

Look forward to the school, philly, and of course podiatry!

As for housing... I am heading up there with my girlfriend and will probably pick an apartment somewhere nearby.

Just wanted to say what's up...

Holla back!

Hey guys !
Are you getting new laptops or computers before you head off?? Just wondering if you think it is necessary or totally a waste of money and won't ever need it. :eek:

New laptop? hm..........i don't think so :)
I'm bringing my antique desk top with me. The school has new computers if I need it I'll walk next door :)

And your scope forum.............there's a podiatrist in Richmond who does surgery all the way to the hip. Thought I let you know.

Hello...

Congrats on your acceptance. Although I am biased towards Scholl, I know of Scholl Graduates/3rd and 4th year students who enjoyed meeting peers from Temple.

If you would really like to discover the "scope" of a podiatrist, I would suggest you ask one of your prof's for the .pdfs that explain each state's "scope" since they vary quite a lot. Most states are uniform in the fact that they allow soft tissue surgery up to the hip. At least one state allows hand surgery under certain circumstances.

Podiatry has lots to offer.

Good Luck. Remember to get at least 8 hours of sleep per night. :D ;)
