Is there anyone else accepted to the Temple DPT class of 2018 who is considering putting down a deposit?

I think I am going to put down the deposit - I feel better about putting it down because it is a school that I really like. I'll have to take financial aid packages into consideration though. But it is worth it for the peace of mind knowing that no matter what I will be able to attend a program I like!

Great! I felt he same way, I like Temple because I think it has a stronger program, and I loved the faculty. I also hear that Drexel offers more money, so I'm obviously going to consider an acceptance for that matter. Living in philly is super affordable and fun!! I'll let you know if I her anything further...I interviewed at Drexel Oct 10th.

Have you heard about any other people who've been accepted? I sent in the deposit and most likely will go. I also interviewed at Drexel and LIU, and have yet to hear anything. Both offer scholarships which is great! But I have a softspot for Temple dispite the high out of state tuition

@Emilyc76 The other dance student and I have been keeping in touch - she was also accepted and is in the same boat as us! Interviewed at Drexel the day I did, etc. I also have a soft spot for Temple! But I have to take any scholarships into consideration. I am extremely grateful to have been accepted into a program I like, with so many great choices I almost hope I am not accepted anywhere else! haha. That would make the decision so much easier!

I completely agree! I loved Temple, but it is one of the only schools without some type of financial incentive or aide. So far, I'm in! Who knows, we may all end up at the same school. I've seen a post or two about Drexel acceptances, but it seems like they are really going to wait until 2015 to let us know!

When did you all send in your application? I sent mine 8/31 but I haven't heard from them yet =/ And if you don't mind me asking, what were your stats?

By the way, congrats! :)

Undergrad: Drexel University, 4 year varsity rower
Cum GPA:3.72
Science GPA: 3.91
Observation/ Volunteer hours: 50 outpatient, 1000+ in patient acute care rehab in two settings (working as an aide and a volunteer)

GRE: verbal 157, quantitative 153, analytical 4.0 (I also took the old paper test previous to this)

Also I filled in quite a bit for volunteer and honors in PTCAS. Academic and athletic awards mainly.

I applied to a bunch of schools (15 ...yikes..I saved up the funds to apply!) due to the fact that I graduated back in 2012, but I have found that lots of schools take you working in the clinic as a major plus!

Today, I got accepted to Drexel and LIU!!

for those of you more familiar with Temple's DPT program, do you know when their class typically fills up? I know some programs fill up around october, others keep interviewing until ~ february, so I wanted to know what you all have heard of how Temple worked in the last few years. I have applied to several programs already but considering Temple, too, and some inside information would be really helpful in making my decision to apply there! (long story short - is it too late to apply there)

Temple just sent out their first round of acceptances from the October 2nd interview on Monday and then there is another interview the 30th. There are more interviews in November so it's not too late but the later you wait the bigger pool of applicants you'll be compared to.

My PTCAS app was verified last week on 10/13, but on Temple's website it says APPLICATION STATUS: 'incomplete items outstanding' and it only shows that they received my supplemental application fee on 9/28 while 'college transcript, statement of goals, ref letter 1&2' are all blank.... Are they not updating the site?

you should be fine as long as your PTCAS is complete. Mine also said incomplete.

How did your interview go with Temple last week? I still haven't heard anything from them at all regarding my application. Do you know how many spots are filled with ED applicants?

Interview went well! We are supposed to hear back within 2-3 weeks about decisions. And No, I don't know how many spots are filled with ED applicants. I didn't apply ED so I'm not sure how that process works. When did you submit your application?

did you get an email from them saying they received your app? If it was verified on 10/13 they should be reaching out to you soon if you meet the requirements. I submitted mine at the end of August and it was verified in September sometime. Got notified for my interview on Oct. 7

I emailed Dr. Carp this morning and he replied saying my application was under review by the ADCOM
