I looked at your signature. I'm applying to all the schools you did. Any advice? I think Marquette and BU are my top choices of that list. Any advice? I submitted AADSAS July 10 and my transcripts will be verified Friday (I hope). I am competitive and have a solid application. Where do you think I'll stand with those schools? Interviews in Oct, Nov?

Oh yea, good luck with housing at Temple.

Well if the schools consider you a competitive applicant, then you should fair well. Competitive for last year was 18+ on the DAT and 3.4+ GPA, but from what I heard those numbers were to go up a bit, since the number of qualified applicants was on the rise. (I think I had heard that applications had TRIPLED from the previous years.)

Good Luck :luck:

Thanks for the info. My stats definitely align with the average stats for enrolled students at those schools. My DAT is a little above, science GPA slightly lower (only by a hair). I have plenty of extracurrics and experiences to boot. We'll see what pans out.

The only good areas in Philly to live are Roxborough/parts of Manayunk, the greater Northeast, center city (expensive) and anywhere outside of philly. Anywhere close to the school is BAD. I just graduated from there so I speak from experience. If you have trouble finding a place, let me know. I have a 3 bed, 1 bath townhouse (rowhouse) for sale in the greater northeast. It is approx. 1500 square feet, small fenced back yard, off street parking, washer/dryer, dishwasher and all other appliances and most of it has been remodeled (new carpet, paint, bathroom, moulding and other stuff). It is being put up for sale next week, but I would consider renting to the right person.

Email me if interested or if you need more advice about Temple
