I was admitted back in October. Received notice that I had been awarded a full tuition scholarship in November. Withdrew in early December. 160/3.94, Maryland resident.

Interesting place. Most of the attorneys where I work graduated from there. Good luck!

Submitted app back in early December, still haven't heard anything.

How were you notified, online through the portal or mail?

I was complete around 1/8 and got my decision a week and a half later, with scholarship info about a week after that. My progression of notification was status checker --> email --> letter. I'm also a MD resident, if that helps any.

Status checker and then I got a package a few days later. Scholarship award came in a separate letter a few weeks after that.

What did the status checker change to when you were accepted ?

So far I've been looking at "Complete" for two months under status and I have no other options.

Thanks!

Accepted 4 days after I went complete in December.
2.92 CGPA and 167 LSAT.

However I have yet to receive my package in the mail even after 3 follow up emails in which they confirmed my mailing address and sent me a second package, they have not responded to my most recent message. Even if I hadn't already been accepted elsewhere this would make me seriously rethink going here. The administration can't even seem to mail a package within a 2 month window or respond to a simple question as to where it went. Honestly at this point I just want it so I can formally withdraw.

Accepted 158/3.35/Non-URM/In-State

Although Im so far unimpressed with them. We have the person above me that has yet to receive his mail from them after contacting their office several times ... they never e-mailed me my status checker info so after a month i e-mailed them and they kind of blew me off, they did not make it easier for me at all.

Out of 13 schools U of B. isn't even in top 10 for me BUT if circumstances force me to, I would attend in the fall so I'm waiting to withdraw.

I understand they're one of the best "TTT" schools and are quickly rising the in rankings due to their new dean - any truth to this? It also seems that they place very well in Baltimore/Maryland (probably because there's only one other school competing with them) and have a large alumni base in the area. I feel like they would be a good choice if you were stuck going to an unranked school.

lol after some real digging through their strange status checker site, I realized i got in... Cool I guess, but their process and communication skills are really really lacking and thats kindof a turnoff.

Yea its amazing how much an unorganized admission process can turn one off. I realize their is a certain difficulty in dealing with thousands of applicants, but other schools are doing it so I expect U of B to do it as well.

I'm from Maryland so I feel like I should know but I really have no idea of their rep. in the area. I feel like MD gets a lot of lawyers from Philly, VA, and especially D.C. I only intend to go there if I'm stuck with only unranked schools. Oy Vey.

I got into the 'Part Time Limited Program', just wondering if anyone has more information about it or is currently enrolled in it?

I applied in november and was waitlisted with very similar numbers. I was shocked! It was my safety school... I guess they got a huge increase in applications!!
