    Hi Greylady,
    I was told that we could pay deposit online. How/where do we go to do that? I assume we'd have to receive the package (with all the info) first, correct?
    I would like very much to get an idea about school schedule so I can speak to my nurse manager and manage to still work part-time at the hospital.

    Last question for now is when exactly is the orientation for Shady Grove? I have planned and purchased air tickets for vacation for Jan 12-21 since last summer. I need to know if I need to make a change on my trip.

    Thank you so much.
    I am sure that when you get your acceptance letter and deposit request it will be VERY clear how to do that - with a credit card I would imagine.

    The schedule is very tough for those who work. You will be spending 50 - 60 hours a week on school and that includes lectures, labs, open lab practice time, clinical skills testing, and your first clinical. We recommend that you not work at all but if you have to, limit it to a day or two on the weekends at most and hope your employer can be extremely flexible about studying for Monday exams. Look around this site to see other students' perspectives and I think you will see this is true. I have seen students try to work 20 or more hours and they rarely succeed - many end up being dismissed or having to drop classes. It's a grueling two years - you don't want to extend it if you can help it - but once done you'll graduate with one of the best nursing educations in the country and a set of lifelong friends.

    The Orientation for Shady Grove BSN students is January 13 and 14 so I am afraid that will interfere with your plans. If you can change them, you should. Orientation is something you do not want to miss - if you do you are really going to feel out of it for a couple of weeks which is stress nobody needs. If you would like to contact me directly by phone I can explain more. If your offer is provisional your documentation of your last transcripts must be received by the first day of Orientation. If you can't get that done by then you should contact the admissions people right away to see what can be done. Our campus is open to the public, so you may visit any time and get yourself oriented. What you will miss, which cannot be re-created for you is getting to meet and know your classmates, hearing the Student Panel of current and former students about what nursing student life is really like, participating in two really helpful workshops geared to nursing students, meeting your faculty, lab tours and more.

    Can't wait to meet you!

    The first round of offers is in process. As each one is accepted, a seat is filled. As an offer is declined, a new spot opens up and a new offer is made to the next person on the list. The list will likely not be finalized for a couple of weeks. For those of you who intend to decline our offer, please do so in a timely manner so your seat can be offered to someone else who is anxiously waiting for a chance.

    Hi, I applied for Spring 2011, Baltimore Campus and the application still says "Committee Ready". I am getting really nervous and wants to know how many seats are filled. Any idea? Do I still have a chance of getting in? My GPA is 3.62. thanks,

    Hi GreyLady,

    Sorry to bug you but can you please confirm if Shady Grove orientation has definitely been scheduled for Thu, Jan 13 and Fri, Jan14, 2011?

    Ideally, I would not want to miss the orientation but my trip has been planned, cancelled and replanned a couple times since March. Can afford to miss the orientation? What would I miss if not attending?

    Thank you so much for all the info you provide us.

    Hi Grey Lady,

    I got accepted, but I never received a phone call and I haven't gotten anything in the mail yet, so I'm a little worried. Should I call and ask to pick up whatever I need from Shady Grove?

    Also, what would you recommend for someone who doesn't have health insurance? Does Shady Grove offer students health insurance?

    Those dates are correct and there is no alternative schedule. The morning of the first day is all about the Shady Grove campus and resources available to all Shady Grove students. The campus is open to the public so you could come anytime and walk around on your own. That afternoon and next whole day is only about nursing and will include meeting and announcements from your faculty, a couple of academic skills workshops specifically designed for nursing students, meeting and hearing from current and graduated students about what nursing student life is really like, lab tours and orientation, and, of course, meeting and starting to get to know your classmates. There is no way we can re-create all that for you. If you can change your schedule, I think you will be glad you did. If you cannot, we won't kick you out or anything but you are really going to feel out of it for a couple of weeks. It would help if you can find a classmate to take really good notes for you.

    Lastly, if you will have late transcripts, we must receive them no later than the morning of Jan. 13. If you can't do that please get in touch with the admissions office immediately to see what can be done.

    Be patient, but you might want to make sure that the phone number and address you put on your application is still good. Your admissions offer and, eventually, your admissions packet will be coming from the office of admissions in Baltimore, not Shady Grove. You will receive UMB health insurance, and be charged for it, unless you can prove you are already covered by another plan. You might want to visit the UMB website for more information. Shady Grove is a campus, but the University of Maryland, Baltimore School of Nursing is your school and that is what will be on your diploma two years from now. I look forward to meeting you!
