it's sort of hard to get scholarships (in my experience) here, because everyone is applying for them. its a university in a very poverty stricken area, so most people need the money.
I received the highest financial aid package from Temple because of my grades in high school. Its automatically based on GPA and SAT scores so if you have good numbers on both of those you will be good to go financially. It is difficult to find a work study job though, if you have that option allotted to you.
They don't allocate enough money for students to comfortably live on campus without taking out a lot of loans so i commute.
I've had some issues with financial aid. It's often hard to get them on the phone but they are helpful once you get someone competent.
Took a while but I got it to go through.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
