    Hey Maryland waitlisters-

    Thought I'd start a thread for those of us who are anxiously waiting for our phone call so we can join the ranks of UM-Class of 2011 :D

    If you hear anything, or move up on the waitlist, POST, so others can be relieved as well.

    Best of luck :luck:

    hello! i just called the admissions office and ms. oliver said that 11 people have been pulled off the waitlist and that they were going to "take 10 more". i have no idea what the heck that meant except maybe they were about to notify 10 more today or something.

    so everyone can consider yourself 21 spots higher! good luck to us all :)

    It means that either they were accepted at UMB or they've accepted elsewhere.

    I believe through early summer they like to keep the waitlist a certain number long, to ensure they have enough people for the class of 2011.

    When i called about a week ago, Ms. Oliver said to call by the end of this week and she'll have a better idea... so I'm restraining myself until then!!

    What is the date for MD's deposit. It said two weeks from notification, but is that from the day the emails went out, or the day the packages are received? Hoping for a big push on that day.

    cp5lb: Did you already received any welcome package from UMB already? when did you received them? I responded Ms Oliver weeks ago and still have not received any welcome package that she said will send out soon. not sure how soon.

    I haven't been accepted yet. I just assumed that those who had, had recieved some sort of package. Maybe not. I'm still on the waitlist. Anybody call today? No answer when I tried. I'm sure they're getting killed today.

    I am on waitlist, too. I tried to call yesterday and there was no answer. I sent an email to Ms Oliver and I got the reply saying they are still working on pulling people from the waitlist.
    so....I guess we have to wait?

    Got mine today too. Soooooo relieved. :) I requested Baltimore also, but I think they go right down the rankings. So, it depends on how many people are ahead of you I guess. Who knows when we find that out?

    Congrats guys! There is still a chance that Baltimore is still open! My best suggestion is to call bright and early in the morning and try to catch Ms. Oliver before anyone else! hehe. Sometimes when you call her direct number she doesn't pick up. You can also call the admissions office and be transferred to her.

    Good luck! I hope to see you in June for orientation :)

    Oh DrSal - To explain: campus preference were picked by the first 120 students accepted. After that, everyone else would pick their campus of choice, if there is still a choice. So there is still a chance that Baltimore is open, if a lot of students picked Shady Grove.

    Hey guys,

    I am currently on a "post-interview" hold. On the Mayland site under FAQs it says that every year students are accepted who were on hold status at some point in the process. Does anyone know how many people were on the hold list last year, and how many people on the hold list were accepted last year?

    Thanks

    at the interview they told us that last year, there were 50 ppl on the waitlist and 51 ppl got accepted. i dont know if that means 1 person from the hold list or if there were more because people dropped off the waitlist....

    Welcome packets will not be going out until May - the incoming class needs to be solidified first. check the website for updated information.

    This is the email I received:

    "As far as the waitlist goes, as of today we are on number 66 out of 91. I'll be accepting more people tomorrow. Basically, the process involves:

    1) Sending out acceptance letters and wait two weeks for individuals to respond by paying their deposit.
    2) The day after the deposit is due, we will offer acceptances to those individuals that we have not heard from. The first two rounds had over 20 people pulled off the waitlist. Now that we are getting closer, the number of acceptances for each round is getting smaller. For example, today is a deadline for deposits and I have yet to hear from 5 people. If I don't receive deposits by the end of today then I will accept 5 more people tomorrow. The next deadline for deposits will be on April 30th.

    Currently, the Baltimore campus is full and acceptances will be going to the Shady Grove campus.

    We have a hold list in case we get through the waitlist. Last year we pulled three people off the hold list.

    Good luck!"
