    The second deposit for people who have already sent in the first one is due April 1st. They might be waiting until after then to figure out exactly how many confirmed/final seats have been taken before sending out more acceptances.

    Just a guess.

    I still didn't even hear back from UMB after they sent out some status email in mid-January. I have yet to receive an interview invite.

    Does it mean that they are going to reject me?

    I may attempt to call their office tomorrow.

    i'd doubt that they're full, the class size is pretty big at 130, they might be waiting to see who sends in a second deposit before april 1, then after may 1 or whenever those with more than one school with deposits will be dropped and some more spots could open up.... keep faith

    They told you how many were filled? When I call, they always say they don't give out that kind of info.

    i think the consensus is that Maryland is done inviting applicants to interview, but that they are not full yet. At least that's what I'm hoping :scared:

    I actually just got a call from them on Friday inviting me to an interview there this Wednesday, so I know they are still interviewing some people.

    Well, I'm hoping majority of the out-state applicants goto their state schools and leave room for people like myself :)

    Nothing yet. I believe the school is on Spring Break so I'm guessing they'll start making some final decisions after spring break.

    I just called UMD today to see if they have recieved my second deposit. They said yes, and that there wouldn't be much information or anything sent our way until June, as they will be "filling up their class". So from the sound of it, there are still more spots to fill.

    Don't give up yet if you haven't gotten in!

    I spoke to somebody from the admissions office this morning, and they are not offering any more interviews. So if you have not received an interview offer, you're more likely going to be rejected.

    As for the class being filled, I don't know. My friend told me that UMB class of 2011 is 90% filled.

    i sent Dr. Meehan an e-mail & this was her reply... take it for what it's worth.

    "Thank you for your email and continued interest in our program. At this
    time, your file remains under strong consideration. We are in the
    process of developing our wait list and you should receive an email and
    letter from us early next week asking if you would like to be placed on
    our list. I fully expect to make additional offers since our second
    deposits are due April 1st."

    good luck,
    jb!:)

    I just checked my AADSAS and it still says: "Invited for Interview" No changes here.

    I was never invited for an interview, but had been still under consideration, until yesterday. It went from "Received/Application Under Review" to "Received/Application Denied". I'm guessing all the riff raff like myself were updated yesterday.

    No hard feelings here - I had already gotten into my #1 - Temple. Good luck to all of you!:luck:

    Hi!
    I'm one of the applicant and I have a quick question. Does anyone know if Maryland accepts French & Italian Literature in translation(English) or African american studies or political science courses as English requirement? Thank you.
