    On the 30th. I took my TEAS on Saturday and they already had that result on Monday. Two of my letters of reco (I had three) were sent to them several months ago. Those aren't even showing.

    I would give them a call to check on your status. Do you have copies of the the recommendation letters? If for some reason they were lost you can fedex copies to the school.

    Oh gracious...are you serious?! Don't scare me already! ACK! I am afraid they will reach through the phone and strangle me for calling already, hahahaha.

    I suppose it's better safe than sorry, eh? Especially since I copied/pasted my essay right there in the online app! Wonder why they isn't even checked off

    They won't strangle you. You sent the information months ago and the information has not been updated. They won't be upset if you call. It would be a shame not to have your application processed because of an error.

    Okay, okay, I think you have me convinced! I did call "way back then" and asked the young lady who answered if she had them, and she told me she did. When I submitted my prerequisite list via email, I even put a note in there about my letters. Still, even my prereq list isn't showing as received.

    **sigh**

    Okay, I called this morning and she said my application wasn't even processed yet, and not to worry. I just checked and it shows everything except the letters of reco that my professors sent a few months ago. The notes next to the items I emailed say "emailed wj"...I hope the "wj" isn't code for something, hahahaha.

    I pray that they have my letters and it gets updated soon, that way I can at least give a sigh of relief on that part

    I am applying to a MSN program for Fall 2012. I called them Wednesday, freaking out because one of my letters of reference had not been posted. They told me they had a ton to process, and they posted it Friday morning. Now my application is complete and ready to review! Gotta cross my fingers for awhile. Does anyone know when they expect to make decisions?

    Mine, too!! I had to bite the bullet and call them today, and the young lady who answered was VERY helpful. I wanted to reach through and hug her! She updated everything while I was on the phone. What a relief!!

    I can assure you that UMD, (especially at Shady Grove where classes are smaller and faculty and students know each other quite well), has the same focus on getting their students through and not on "weeding out" students that some other schools are noted for. There are wonderful academic support systems, student organizations, tons of scholarships for Shady Grove students, and a lovely, safe campus. You should visit sometime. (I totally admit to bein pro-Shady Grove.)

    As to underserved populations, I know that Montgomery county has a reputation as being all upper income folks but if you will do a little research on the demographics of the county, I think you would be really surprised at how very diverse it is. That is certainly reflected in our student body, which is actually more diverse than main campus. Our students go to clinicals all over the county, in DC, and even in Baltimore so there are plenty of opportunities to work with underserved populations. Hope you will think about us before you make your final decision but best of luck whatever that is!

    I know it is a long wait to find out and I am aware of that MD is very thorough in their application review. I have been accepted into my backup school and I am afraid to lose my slot. Would it be wrong to put my deposit down to hold my place in that program and then decline at a later date if I am accepted into UMSON? I have no problem forfeiting my deposit.
