| | I just got accepted to Temple as a transfer. Right now, I'm going to community college in NJ, and I'm a bit surprised that I got in. The last time I checked my HS GPA, it was 2.5. However, there was a technicality (seriously) regarding that, and I took a ton of honors classes my senior year and did much better, so I assume it went up. I submitted an application after my first semester, and I got a 3.2. Not bad. I also wrote a pretty good essay and got an awesome letter from a professor of mine who got his PhD from Oxford, so that worked to my advantage. They got back to me in less than three weeks which was great. I had a lot of activities also. Temple likes that. Temple is really easy to get into, honestly. It has a really high acceptance rate. I didn't need any teacher recommendations and I still was accepted. My SAT scores were 1860 though, so I'm assuming that's what got me in, because my GPA was 2.8. As long as you have either a decent GPA or SAT or ACT scores, and write a decent essay, you'll get in fine. Really, there's no need to stress about getting until Temple unless you're a complete idiot. Had a strong GPA, decent SAT's. Make sure your essay is good. It's easy to get it. Just do well on your SAT's and have a well written essay.
