    Lol...I feel your pain. I have the same question, but for the week of Mar 19th. Has anyone heard, I know we're technically supposed to get a response in 2-3 weeks after the interview and all, but she did say it may be sooner than the 2-3 weeks:scared:

    It's two weeks for you guys and 1 week for me and i'm almost thinking of going to sit at the post office, can't wait for the mailman any longer. It so funny that i've not seen any rejection from Temple on the rejection list.

    I interviewed on March 12 and supposedly for that week (or group or however they group people) they met to make decisions last Friday.

    Hopefully we'll know by tomorrow or early next week at the latest.

    You guys I called yesterday because I was too anxious to know if I was accepted. When I first called the ADCOM was in a meeting so I called back a little later. She told me that they still hadn't made a decision, and to give them another week or two. I wanted to tell her that I can't wait another week cause I am going crazy checking the mail everyday. So I don't know guys. If anyone hears anything please let everyone know. GOOD LUCK!!!

    Then why do you guys think she told me they hadn't made a decision fro me when I interviewed on the 13th. That makes no sense, unless, :idea: oh crap, oh no, this is bad news. Oh great now I have to wait another week for them to tell me I have been waitlisted or denied. I can't handle the wait any longer. Do you guys think it means I'm screwed?:scared: :scared: :scared: :mad: +pissed+ :(

    I was wondering if, with temple, there is a distinction between alternate acceptance and being waitlisted, because I know that with most schools, ppl on the waitlist do not pay a deposit....but with temple, alternates do pay a deposit. Or are the terms just interchangeable with temple...i.e all waitlisters pay a deposit. Not sure with this.....

    Got my acceptance letter Thursday and I interviewed on March 12... if you interviewed around that time, you should probably hear soon I would guess.

    I interviewed last week and got my letter for the alternate pool on Monday. They were really fast.

    I'm still waiting for final decisions from other schools, so I'm debating whether or not to plunk down that $500.



    Brasilia01 - I think it might be good news that they're holding off on making a decision for you. It seems like they quickly put a lot of people on the "alternate" list.

    Thanks for the encouragement. I'm really pissed but what can you do. I am waitlisted at Midwestern so I hoping that will pull through for me. If not I will reapply next year. Thanks everyone!

    Brasilia sorry to hear that :(
    Well, I am on the waiting list and I am loosing all my hopes already :(
    I think the waiting list has 60 people as of 2 weeks ago. I thought Temple places everyone on their waiting list but I guess I was wrong.
    Brasilia do you have a plan B in case you don't get in at all? I am going to finish my bachelors in Chemistry. It sucks, because I am going to be taking advance chemistry courses from the junior and senior year together so I can graduate by May 08. Yeah, I am not going to be able to work at all...I am going to be broke.
    In the meanwhile I will take my last pre-pharm requisite in the summer. I will retake the PCAT in Oct. and hope to get 80% or above. I just don't know how to ask my teachers and pharmacists again for a letter of recommendation.
    I hope you get pull off the waiting list from Midwestern.
    By the way, are you from Brazil? I am from South America too.

    IvTECH, I think we went to that interview together. By your previous post about Howard I think I know who you are. You live in DC right? and work at the hospital as a tech...
    I am the girl that drove from Allentown, PA. Do you remember me?? Oh well, I was placed on the alternate list. That sucks!!!
    Did you notice how the group after us were only 2 students for 1 interviewer. That is not fair...
    Keep in touch and tell me if you remember me. I was wearing a pin stripe suit/skirt.

    dont lose hope!
    my boss went to temple.. she didnt hear until july.. but im sure youll find out before that.

    in the letter, it says everything doesnt have to be in until april 27th or so. so im sure after that date acceptances for the wait list will be going out.

    Temple...PFFTT!!!

    After never hearing back from them about scheduling an interview, I called and was told that they didn't have my PCAT scores. I told them I had a receipt from PCAT and to please check again. After five minutes of waiting..."Oh, here they are!" :mad: :scared: :mad: :thumbdown:

    are you kidding me? so I am passed by for an interview and in the meantime others are taking up the spots...and all because the office misplaced my scores? WHAT?!

    I do have an interview now...hope it's not too late.

    Reedus, that really sucks...I thought they were really organized. Anyway, is Temple your first choice, I noticed you were accepted to several other universities. Are you in state or out of state?
