    So I was wondering how the provisional acceptance works? Like do I wait until I get my transcript from this semester to send in all the forms and money? Because I just got the call saying I was provisionally accepted (I assume since I really didn't have many of my pre-reqs doen since I just switched to nursing last semester) and I know I will be getting all A's and B's this semester.
    No waiting needed! It means that your offer is contingent upon getting Bs or better in your remaining courses. Congratulations! As long as you bring in those As and Bs you are in! You will be expected to submit those last transcripts before Orientation. Don't let up - if a C happens your offer will most likely be rescinded in which case your seat goes to someone on the Wait List.

    Congrats! Ahhh this is making me so nervous- I'm going to be staring at my phone ALL week. I wonder if they notify in any particular order or if they select randomly on notifications. Anyone know?
    Hard to say. I think they divide up the list and staff just start calling. If no answer they go on to the next person. The fastest way to find out is to check your status - what you want to see is "Admit Institution" or "Provisional Admits" which means you are in IF your last transcripts to be submitted are all Bs or better. We suspect there are some who know they are going to pull a C and delay submitting that transcript on the theory that there won't be enough time to notify and get in someone on the wait list. All that does is deny a space to a wait list person - it does not create a situation where UM would let that C slide and let that student in to fill the seat. Are there exceptions? Very, very few and the circumstances have to be pretty extraordinary, submitted to admissions, and deliberated on very carefully.

    So Grey Lady they have finished reviewing applications for both schools and we should all know soon? or this is just a first wave of acceptances?

    I was under the impression that all acceptances were made around the same time. My question is: does your status change online before your are contacted by UMSON?

    Mine changed to saying Decision Made and Provisional-Admit online before they contacted me.

    Thank you for breaking it down. I get it, but what I don't get is how someone could do that? It just isn't fair! Thanks again

    west0807 - there is only one school but two campuses. All applications are reviewed together without reference to campus.JulieBeans - it is possible you get a call before your status changes or vice versa.nermface - I like to think that there is a special place in Hades for selfish people who would do that.

    Would anyone want be apart of a facebook group for the people accepted- like a group called: University of Maryland School of Nursing Class of 2015?

    Grey Lady,

    If my application status is STILL complete ready for review at this point, should I be concerned.
  12. by   JulieBeans
    Hey sbaumg93, I think that's the majority of applicants right now. It seems so far that only one person has mentioned being accepted. I wouldn't be worried. I know it's annoying waiting for feedback. I've applied before and been wait-listed (about 3 years ago) and it took a long time to hear. At the time my GPA was a lot lower and I'm hoping my improved GPA (not to mention added life experience) will help me be accepted this time around. Good luck
