    i don't have an answer for your question. but i wanted to express my anxiety b/c I have not heard from them yet! I moved so now I fear my acceptance (or rejection) letter has been lost like so much forwarded mail. Is anyone else still waiting to hear about UMAB trad. BSN?

    Hi! Don't stress! They informed me two weeks prior to the application deadline and said I had two weeks to send in my deposit, so I think I received mine earlier than most. It will probably take them at least 3-4 weeks to notify candidates, so if the deadline is April 1 for traditional, you probably still have a few weeks. Also, because I applied for the accelarated rather than traditional, I am sure that your application process is completely different than mine. If I were you, I would definately contact admissions and tell them your concern. They are very easy to get in touch with, and each time I have gotten an answer to my questions quite quickly. I totally understand any anxiety that you are feeling. It is very difficult waiting to hear. Did you apply anywhere else? Good luck and let me know if you have any other questions!!

    Hey there,

    I just attended an open house for UMAB and am a little discouraged. They said over 1000 apply and there are only 200 spots for traditional and their new masters program. If you guys got in, what were your GPAs if you dont mind me asking?
