Additional info & updates

4/13/2010 Medium sized envelope from UMD. Sadly I was waitlisted. I intend to withdraw from MD.

This cycle is finally over and I am going to Howard.

I wish everyone the best of luck in their cycle.

4/12/2010 Decision made via status checker for MD.

4/11/2010 Withdrew from UB. Still waiting on Md.

4/6/2010 Received letter of acceptance from UDC in the mail. Also received a scholarship. I am however going to withdraw my application from UDC. As of right now I'm trying to decide between UB and Howard... still no word from Maryland.

4/1/2010 Called UMD. Still "In Committee" how long does it take to look at document? Its been a month. On the more optimistic side at least they didn't say no.....yet.

3/31/2010 In @ UDC via Status checker.

3/30/2010 In at Howard via email. Options is a good thing to have.

3/26/2010 WL @ American via email. Its at least better then a flat out rejection. The waiting game is brutal.

3/9/2010 Officially able to accept or decline at Ubalt. Still haven't received an actual envelope.
Received an email from UDC which I assume tells me my status but the link doesn't actually work. Not sure if this is a good or a bad thing.

Apparently the email for UDC was messed up for evryone. They sent another email out (after some harassing) saying to continue to check the other status checker that they never update. Glad we cleared that one up.

3/4/2010 Accepted to University of Baltimore via phone.

3/4/2010 Got an email from someone at the University of Baltimore congratulating me on my acceptance and inviting me to a diversity dinner this Friday. I never received an official acceptance. Not sure what this means. I was extremely ecstatic for a second but now I'm not sure. Still no mail (am I the only one scared of my mailbox lately?). Will keep you posted.

As of 3/02/2010 MD application is officially "In Review". Also called UBalt and they said my application was going to go to Committee today. No change on American, even though the status updated the date.

Called Md today 2/24/2010 to see what was taking my application so long to complete. Got an email later today asking about my in state residency form, even though I had submitted it via LSAC. Re-faxed it anyway after a very awkward conversation with the UMD admissions dept coordinator (is calling twice in one day really bad? ) I hope I didn't somehow earn myself a rejection. Either way I am now considered In state. Which is good since I've lived here all my life.

As of 2/23/2010 All my law schools have finally received my application. Still waiting on my LSDAS reports to clear for everyone.

I seriously wish Howard had an online status checker so I can properly act out my obsessive compulsion regarding frequent drive by checking for all my applications. Oh well...

As of 2/22/2010 Almost all of my schools have received my application. the only one that hasn't sent me any form of notification is the University of D.C. .

Submitted all applications of 2/16/2010

I totally feel you on Howard not having a status checker :(

Funny you ask
Tuesday, August 18 2009 at 08:00 PM

I received my acceptance packet in the mail on Saturday (letter dated Friday), and my status just changed today to "decision made". They were pretty quick to respond to my application overall though. GOOD LUCK!

Monday, August 31 2009 at 08:00 PM

They sent me the link, but you can also check from the law school's home page. Hope this helps.

Maryland Status Change!
