I am very happy that I chose Temple. I really didn't know much about the school before I got here because I made a decision based on a scholarship, but I know I wouldn't be more happy anywhere else. I feel free to pursue whatever I want. I am lucky to have come here when I did, because the school is rising each year in the rankings. I also received a full tuition scholarship. The only downside for some people could be the location, because the school is located in a bad neighborhood. However, it is very close to Center City where there are many opportunities. I feel confident that I am being prepared for my future.
