    Does anyone know how Maryland is with out of state applicants or where I can access this info? I know they accept quite a few out of staters but I don't know from which states. I am a Florida resident and was wondering my chances. Thanks!

    Yes, they do take quite a few students out of state. I'm out of state, and I got in with scholarship :D . I think your chances of getting in are good. Good luck

    I got in Maryland too as an out of stater. Even better, I'm from a notorious undergraduate school. Almost at everywhere I went; people either ask me “so why did you choose XXXX in the first place” or try to assure me with “Don’t worry. We won’t judge you on your undergraduate institution” Very funny, but hey, I made it too. :smuggrin:

    it is a $10.000 a year scholarship each year for four years. It is based on merit.

    They do accept a good amount of out-of-staters. However, they prefer your DAT score and GPA to be above average then. They prefer in-state students, so you should have a DAT over 19.5 and gpa over 3.4, which is their average, to be competitive. By the way, I got this information from the envelope they gave me during my interview. Oh yah, I am going to University of Maryland next year ^_^ So I hope to see all of you guys next year.

    Hope this helps,
    Rich

    Blackstars, I also got the 10,000 dollar scholarship for Maryland; but on my letter it said for the year 2006-2007. Did yours say the same or did it say for all four years specifically?

    Blackstars and ninjajustin, do you guys mind posting your stats? I'm just curious what criteria Maryland uses to award scholarships. Thanks a bunch if you're willing and congrats of course :)

    I don't think it's for in-state applicants. Blackstars has said he/she was out of state. I'm in-state with 3.87 GPA and 23AA/22PAT and I wasn't awarded any scholarship :( For some reason I have a feeling that Maryland is more willing to award scholarships to out of state applicants, which sucks big time, haha.
