Just withdrew my app.

Was accepted back in November. Good luck to the rest of you, and enjoy my seat!

Yes, I have a locker. You can request one at the start of the year through Student Affairs. Commuting students get priority, but even people who live in the school's housing were able to get lockers without issue.

Is there a place to store/make a lunch (fridge/microwave?)

Thanks for taking the time to answer questions!

Just got a fee waiver email. I'm a splitter so not sure if it's worth it this late?

Just went 'in review'. Typically how long after you go under review do you receive a decision?

I went "in review" around 12/15 and then the status was updated (still "in review) on 1/17.
I have yet to receive a decision.

On LSN and through talking to a few people about it, it seems as though applicants that are very well-qualified in the ADCOM's opinion or not-so-well-qualified tend to get their decisions much faster than those that are sort of teetering on the borderline (and will most likely be wait-listed). I know this tends to be true at a lot of schools, but it seems as though Maryland varies more than most in terms of response time.
It also appears as though they release decisions in clusters.

Hopefully we'll hear soon! :)

Do you waitlisted folks have any plans to get yourself a seat?

Dumb question: Those entering the four year evening program are Class of 2016, right?

I plan on sending a LOCI and an updated resume. Not sure how else to stay in touch without annoying the admissions office.

To your second question--I assume evening students will be the class of 2016.

Since I go to a Quarter school, I'm going to submit my upgraded transcript in mid-march

Good plan. Let's hope the number of applicants seriously underwhelms this cycle and we all get in!

Just changed to "in review". Should I expect a decision anytime in the foreseeable future?

Status changed to 'Decision made'! :shock: Any idea as to how I'll receive the decision? e-mail, snail mail, phone call? And how long?

Anyone who got a decision made notice also get the invite to meet with UM Carey Law Receptions?

Hoping this is a good sign?!

Okay, also important, anyone who DIDN'T get the 'Decision made' or maybe got waitlisted also get this notice? I'm trying to see if there's a pattern or if this was just sent to everyone.

Applied FT program. MD is not my #1, although depending on money and job prospects they could be appealing.

Anyone know if MD law is in a good part of Baltimore?
