DO NOT come to Temple for math graduate studies if you have somewhere else to go. Years ago I had other choices and now I regret, deeply!

This school is taking advantage of its graduate students, assign you unfair amount of teaching tasks and tutoring hours, exhausting your energy so you have little time focusing on your studies and researches. They are not willing to pay for your extra work but just iterating "this is your duty", "see, we have not used up your 20 hour duty". I know friends from two big universities in this city and they only have 6 to 8 hours work load for a full teaching assistant. Expect to work much more if you come to Temple!

For graduate students it is the researches that matter, but obviously those in charge do not care. This is a vicious circle. The school is not nice to the graduate students, then graduate students would not be nice to the undergrads, and the education quality suffers.
