It was quite the 5-day wait from "Decision Made" until I received the answer, but thankfully I got my letter of acceptance today -- excited!

congrats on GMU. Jealous. I know they are the same rank, but do you think they are equal schools?

Probably. I think that, to begin with, they are both schools that have more regional clout than national clout. They also both have some great emphasis tracks. In the case of UMD, I am keenly interested in their Environmental Law and Healthcare Law tracks. At GMU, their Regulatory Law track looks very enticing, and they are known for an emphasis on economics.

In deciding which is more desirable, I think it would solely come down to $$ for me.

Hey All,

I'll probably be submitting my application this week. I was waitlisted last year for the pt program. Not sure what to expect this year, but I'm going for it... :?

146/3.5

I was sent two separate emails offering a fee waiver from UMD last night, so I sent in an app this morning. It does seem kind of late in the game for schools to be sending out unsolicited fee waivers. Anyone else get these? I feel like they just want to bump their numbers so they want me to apply just so they can reject me :?
I'm already in at American and GMU, though, so adding UMD to the mix would make for some interesting upcoming decisions.

I got an email yesterday even though I not only had a fee waiver already but I'd already applied and been accepted weeks ago... Not sure what's up with their system haha

Because my numbers suck and people with better numbers than mine have been rejected. How are your numbers?

A few points below each median. Sadly expecting the same. How long do you think we are gonna have to wait?

I applied around Thanksgiving and have been "in review" for a month or so now. They've updated my date a few times, most recently yesterday (01.09). My stats are in profile, and with my GPA I wouldn't be surprised if I take a bit longer than the average but there really doesn't seem to be a rhyme or reason to the updates in the status checker, so I wouldn't read too much into it.

Also, with the December LSAC stats released yesterday, I'd be really surprised to see them ding anyone early who's around median, especially LSAT median. Just my (admittedly worthless) thoughts.

Hey guys, my online status checker said "Decision Made." I then got an email from the IT Help Desk at Maryland, and it said your account needs to be set up and click here to go through the process. Im guessing this means I was accepted... anyone else get this or know?

Has anyone received any scholarship $$ yet?

I'm thinking about e-mailing the school and asking about when/if I would hear about $$

I got this email too. It even starts with "Congratulations!" I am going to go out on a limb and say we are probably in. :lol:

No idea. For all I know it was a miss click and we are out. My gut says not though.

I emailed a girl in admissions who said she look into it for me and get back to me... that was the beginning of the week and I still haven't heard from her regarding when scholarship decisions will be made. I feel like last year they didn't release any until really late in the game, but I could be wrong. I reread last year's thread a while back and could be getting different threads confused.

On a side note though, I was accepted a while ago, but I never got that IT email... hope they didn't forget about me!

If you think you were admitted, try setting up an account and let us know if it works.

Oh I definitely was already admitted, I got my letter weeks ago but hadn't really heard anything since then.

Setting up an account worked for me, too -- thanks for the link!
