"CONGRATULATIONS" on MD. Quite a resume, too. Do you have a school of preference? MD would be nice if you already love the school. Good luck to you and good job again.

...for the encouraging words. Although you prob cant really acuratly guage my application from my not disclosing my numbers (yet), I do appreciate it. I am below their medians and I am not a URM so it's going to be an uphill battle for me. THey're taking their time with their decision though so maybe thats a good sign... If i get in, Im going to Bentleys and buying everyone drinks. ; )

Baltimore was my 1st choice so I sent my app kind of early like at the end of November. Congrats on MD, I live crazy close to the campus.

Hi, thanks for the positive words re: U of MD! Congratulations to you on your acceptance! Up until a couple of days ago, I was feeling quite patient about waiting to hear from LS's. But now that I've checked out this site and seen that so many others have heard back from their various schools, I'm starting to get impatient! ;-) It'll be fine...I just need to distract myself.... ~Peter

Sorry you got waitlisted man...DC schools and waitlist are an uphill climb. Wish you the best of luck! (Apparently I can't follow directions on LSN, but I can get into American - - - Go Figure...)

...on your acceptance to Maryland. I have to say that you have some of the most impressive 'soft' factors that I have ever seen.

here's the thing: i was acccepted to UMD back in late january or so. i called and asked about an open house in feb, they told me no such thing was planned. when i got the the notice for the reception they were having in dc/baltimore, i called and told them that i couldnt make it, and again asked if there was going to be an open house for admitted students, and was told no again. i visited the school on my own on a saturday, and loved it. but i couldnt meet with anyone, because it wasnt a weekday. i was just really frustrated, and for the amount of money that i would be paying as an out of state student (who really wants to just go back to california as a transfer) maryland lack of correct info and telling people what was going on (at least to me) just wasn't cutting it. i'm most likely going to gmu, unless one of the schools thats waitlisted me (please take me!!! haha) lets me in. but yah the school and the area was really great and nice, and i really wish i had had the chance to get up to the school on the open house day (had they told me about it) because that may have swayed my decision. good luck next year tho!
