    Temple's financial aid was more than a hassle to deal with. They'll make you want to rip your hair out. You wait on hold for 30 minutes to talk to someone who doesn't know what they're doing, and then they refer you to another department and when you talk to the other department, they refer you again and then the third person generally says you have the wrong place or they (again) don't know what they're talking about. Temple would just add money to my bill, take it off, add it again, etc. When I switched majors they told me there would be a slight tuition increase and not to worry about it. When I got the bill it was 7,000 dollars, which is far from slight. My tuition for my freshman year was close to 45,000 dollars, and I felt that the education I was getting was similar to my friends who are paying a quarter of that cost.

    Tuition is seriously not that bad compared to the awesome professors we have. I go to Tyler which has some of the best professors ever...just look up your professor one day and you'll see.
