Essay (13) |
During my junior year of high school I worked my butt off to get a 3.65 GPA and was very involved with volleyball. Basically if you are extremely dedicated to one or two aspects of your school and have above a 3.25 cul. GPA you should be good to go!

| Dec 08 2008 | Temple replied to my application very early. I would recommend appling earlier than later--their app is very easy to fill out. Recommendations are not very important to TU i think because I made a huge mistake in my recommendations to TU--My teachers thought I was applying to a different college and the letter was about that particular college. I had a 3.75 GPA in high school (to be in TU honors you need a 3.8) and did community service and club activity, but no sports at all. I spent the most time on my essay...remember TU is a huge school and essays on topics like a loved ones death or traveling to spain isn't going to stick out. Try to integrate the morals and ideals of Temple into your essay. Temple is a very artsy-inclined school so creativity is your best bet. please do not go here. There is no musical talent at this place. I had a good working background, and that's pretty much it. I was an average high school student but I did well on my SAT's and was a hard worker so i think that helped me. They gave me a lot of financial aid compared to other schools that I applyed to.
