Hi everyone! Congrats to everyone who's been accepted. I didn't see a thread for the Temple class of 2014 so I figured I'd start one.

So I guess I'll introduce myself. I'm Katherine, currently finishing my undergrad in Biophysics at Temple, big into Billy Idol and Iggy Pop. I would love to get to know some of my future classmates, so if you're planning to attend Temple, please introduce yourself!

I will be in Temple. I have been in the post-bacc at the med school this year, which comes with a guaranteed spot if you qualify academically. I just got my grades back and I am good, so I guess I will be meeting some of you in August.
I have been in the Health Sciences Campus for a year, so I can try to answer any general questions about Temple if anyone needs.

an incredibly beautiful house. One guy will be moving into one of the rooms. Stewart is a Business major and I am a Accelerated Nursing student at Temple University.
Below you will find pictures and more information about ...the place. If
you would like to take a
look at the place just email me and I will show you the place.

Hey guys I am new to SDN...I have been away doing a fellowship in Western Africa and I havent been recieving any communication from Temple after I was accepted since I do not have continuous internet or mail access...Is there anything that we are required to do before we matriculate in August? Do we have to take any drug test? How about a physical? It would be helpful if current students could let me know for sure so I can take care of whatever needs to be done before I head back.

Log into TMO, there's a bunch of information there. You will need to have a child abuse check done, a background check done, and a physical. You will also need to have transcripts sent from your universities directly to Temple. I haven't heard anything about a drug test. You may also want to join the Facebook for our class to keep up to date. Hope this helps!

Hey guys,

I just payed my 100 deposit but can't find any pre-orientation info on the tmo website. Does anyone have any idea where I can find information on orientation, important paperwork, and other instructions?

See you soon!

Your TMO account should have a link that says "Tuition Deposit" and under that link is all of the information and paperwork that we've received so far. You can also join the Facebook page (I think there's a link earlier in this thread) and you should check out the blog (tusm2014.wordpress.com, but I think you have wait for an email invitation from the admissions office before you can post anything).

Hope this helps!

You may need to give it a few days. It took some time after I paid my deposit before the link showed up for me. Unless it was there all along and I just didn't see it, which is very possible:laugh:.
