The class size for this Fall will be the same more or less than it has been. I think UMD has made a big effort to project itself forward in terms of clinics and research.rocknightmare said:why are there so many threads about maryland lately??
are they accepting more students than usual? and people are wondering about them or what?

The thing that sucks about VCU is that they have this stupid D.5 program that they admit some students who dont have strong appl into. The problem is last year they had 19 students admitted to D.5, which means out of 88 seats, 19 are already taken. So now we are fighting for 69 seats. I have decent stats, but when I heard this, I'm not sure if I have a fighting chance because my app were so late.
Sorry you are right... I think the number dropped down to 17. All you need to do is get Bs in the classes you are taking. Considering you are taking first year classes, with a lighter load, I dont see that being hard.rocknightmare said:not completely true on the 19 students. they must get a 3.5 or above i believe.
so you should assume that few of them aren't making it. but yea your point is clear.
I have talked to some faculty and they said they aren't ever doing that again. They seem to be clueless on how 19 people got into the program.
