Temple University, which accepts just over half of applicants, has a somewhat competitive admissions process.
A study conducted by Admit See, an undergraduate and graduate application-sharing platform created by University of Pennsylvania students, found students who used certain words, wrote about certain topics or even just wrote with a certain tone in their application essays were more likely to get accepted to one Ivy League school over another.
Upon analyzing its application archives, Admit See found students who referred to their parents as “mom and dad” in their application essays were more likely to get accepted to Stanford, while students who called them “mother and father” were more likely to receive a Harvard admission offer.
Note also that some students were accepted with test scores and grades a bit below the norm.
This is because Temple has a holistic admissions process.
This means that for every 100 students who applied, 58 were admitted, making Temple's admissions process competitive. Applicants may submit SAT or ACT scores or they can choose the Temple Option and provide responses to a few short-answer questions.
During the 2017-18 admissions cycle, 74% of admitted students submitted SAT scores.
