    hi Temple2006,

    I read the housing info, but I haven't decided where I want to stay yet. Do you have any recommendations on which one is better?

    Thanks

    :) :)

    Hi,

    My name is Jenn. I'll be going to Temple this year too. I only live an hour away from Henry Ave., so I looked at pretty much all of the places there. I decided on Henry on the Park, even though it is the most expensive place, because it was really nice and made me feel like I wasn't in Philadelphia. I'm not from a city, so I wanted to find a quiet place. If you have any questions about what I thought of the places, feel free to email me at [email protected]

    Hi!

    So far I am trying to get Summit Park area...

    Jenn, does the the rent of the apartments on Henry include all utilites? Oh, I am bringing a car there, I will need a parking space also. I guess the last few thing I am thinking about is whether the aparment manager will take packages for me........and whether i can get DSL or not... Maybe I should looking into Henry Av. Area too, at least for comparision.

    Cusp!! See you in August!!

    :)

    hey guys,

    Congrats in getting into Temple. I am a Temple hopeful and am getting ready to apply for the 2003 school year. I was wondering if Temple had a secondary application or is everything just through AADSAS. PLease any input would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    Desi...
    there isn't any secondary but once you get an interview...the day of you have to write an essay on a certain topic that they pick for ya....and also you're supposed to prepare a short "presentation" but for me it just wound up being like just telling them a little about yourself and interacting with the other interviewees....good luck with the application process and maybe we'll see ya in a few years!!!

    Hi Desi,

    When I wrote my essay at Temple during the interview, I was able to choose my own essay topic. The Director of Admissions, Mark Lombard, told us that if we didn't like the topic we got, we can switch the topics. Each person has a different one. I guess I got lucky becuase I got "What is the biggest challenge in your life and how you have over come it"....something like that. I know some people got some crazy topic that is more relevent to dentistry..."What can you do in 10 years to contribute in the field of dentistry"....etc.

    Temple is very strong for its clinical program, if you are interested in general dentistry, it is a school that you want to go for sure. According to the dental students there, you will have tons of patients and you will be able to extract all the teeth and do all the other precedure as much as you want. Students there are pretty confident.

    Right now I am still on the waitlist for few other schools, but it seems like the chance of getting in is slim. Who knows, maybe I will get lucky, then I will have to make another major decision of my life again! yikez!

    :)

    yay for temple!

    I see many Bruin-Owls here! i was almost one :)

    i don't think the essay really matters much during the interview... caues i think mine was really crappy...grammar and spelling errors everywhere cause I had like 5-10 mins to scribble something down...
    the first essay question i got made no sense... i didn't even know what it was asking...and then mark left so i changed questions :)

    I looked at one bedrooms only. But here is what I found:

    Henry on the Park: $965-995 (depending on size) plus electric, which covers A/C, washer, dishwasher, and the usual electric stuff. Gas is included and covers the stove, dryer, heat, and hot water.

    Summit Park: $855 terrace/$895 balcony. All utilities included. Coin operated washer/dryer in basement.

    Woodmere: $795 terrace/$810 balcony. All utilities included. Coin operated washer/dryer in basement.

    Valley High Apts.: $760/$795, depending on size, plus electric. Washer and dryer.

    Parking wasn't a problem at any of the places. They all had big parking lots. I hope that helps some of you. The best idea is probably to take a day and visit all of them. They're all within about a mile of each other on Henry Ave.

    I'm looking forward to meeting you all!

    Jenn

    Hi liliajlk,

    For Henry on the Park, you get your own laundry facilities? That sounds interesting. Do they have any studios? One bedroom may be out of my budget.

    Yes, you get your own washer and dryer in your kitchen at Henry on the Park. I don't know if they have studios. You'd have to call them and ask.

    As for a place that still has openings, I had Summit Park call me the other day to ask me if I was still interested, but I was already on their list. I'd try calling them. I think that since they have so many students living there, it means that the turnover is pretty large. They might still have some available.

    Another idea would be to call Temple and see who is looking for roommates. There may be people who have already secured an apartment but needs someone to share it with.

    Any of them probably would. First you fill out an application, and then they send you a lease. For some places, if you're a student, you need a co-signer. It depends on the place. I didn't need a cosigner at Henry on the Park--Pat VanBeveren filled out my form since I will most likely be using loans. Non-students need proof of employment.

    hi liliajlk

    Thanks for all the information. I like the idea of having my own laundry facilities. After I figure out the living situation, I will still need to find out to ship all my stuff over there. I live on the west coast, and it will be a big change for me! I am pretty excited though. Temple rocks!
