    Temple is amazing in terms of how much I spend. While I think all universities charge much more than they should, Temple has given me an unbeatable price for my out-of-state status. I receive quite a bit of financial aid. If I didn't allocate money toward housing off-campus, I would spend about $10K per year on tuition as an out-of-state resident.

    It's a very affordable school, and is the most cost-effective one for a college of its quality and ranking. Other colleges of the same ranking are much more expensive, and Temple provides pretty decent merit-scholarship awards and compensations.

  • I am accepted here and planning to attend soon

    schools say they're willing to help out even the most unfortunate students yet the student financial services were always rude and had an attitude, never picked up the phone, and would call me way past their closing time while I worked so when I called back they were already closed. I finally got my questions answered and they said they were not able to do anything to help my financial situation. I don't even know if I'm able to go to college at all now.
