Dunno, but I'm sure they'll announce other options soon.

How did others' interviews go?
Also: did anyone send a followup email, or anything of that sort? I don't want to barrage them with extraneous stuff considering I'm sure they're busy, but it might be polite / keep my interview fresh in their minds, too. Thoughts?

My interview went as well as it possibly could've gone. I was very confident by the end of it. I did not send any follow ups, and I am pretty sure that the decisions have most likely already been made.

We have almost the same dates. I really wish I knew how many updates I should expect before a decision.

Looks like people have been getting decisions about a month after they submit, 2-3 updates. That's according to a combination of people on here and LSN. In a perfect world the updating would be standardized between schools.

Did anyone receive an invite to a webcast tomorrow on environmental law practice? Maryland is one of my top choices because of the environmental law program and I made it clear in my ps that this is the area of law I intend to focus on. I am still waiting on a decision (app submitted 12/21) but do you guys think they would invite me if they were not going to accept me?

I was admitted and did not receive that e-mail. Maybe that's a good sign?

On another note, has anyone had any luck using an offer from another school to negotiate scholly money with MD?

Md is known to be very stingy but I saw people on lsn with average numbers with 5-10k . Don't know if it's by year or total but money is still money I guess hah

This isn't a definitive answer: But for your consideration, during my interview they were very blunt about wanting to know what other schools I was considering and what kind of $$ those schools offered me. I'm not saying that this is indicative of a general policy or that they plan on matching those numbers, but take it as you will. Hope that helps!

Has anyone else had problems with the admissions office? I have spoke with a lady named Lois, and she is a total !$%* (insert whatever expletive you wish). Her behavior has really pushed the school down on my personal rankings. Has anyone else experienced anything? Also, I have been accepted and I have begun each of my three conversations conveying as much.

I've only interacted with a guy, but he was nothing but completely helpful.

nice. I've been looking for a schedule for a good 30 seconds and didn't find one. do you know if they have a asd schedule rolling around somewhere?

Similarly, the first question I was asked during the interview is which other schools I was considering and how much they had offered me, so I was honest and gave specific numbers. At the end of the interview, they asked me again (in two different ways) how serious I was about accepting UMd's offer and then they told me directly that they would pass all my info. along to the scholarship committee, but that -- as a state school -- it was unlikely that they would be able to match the full ride that I've been offered at UC Irvine.

That said, I haven't heard anything from Maryland yet re: scholarships, so I'm not sure how things will shake out. I'll update this when I find out how close they come to matching my other offers.

Nope, couldn't find one either. :/
