    Thanks for the info Grey Lady. It is good to hear that the clinicals are diverse and there are underserved opportunities. I also currently live in one of the more diverse areas of Montgomery county and I like it and like that we have people from all over the world in this county.
    Me too! My kids grew up with all kinds of people and we have the most and best ethnic restaurants in the state!

    .....and I forgot to mention that we have plenty of free parking at SG, even in the six level garage.

    You're making me jealous And, making me second guess my decision to apply at Balto, even though I live probably an hour from SG

    I know! She is making me feel bad that I wasn't eligible to apply for this Fall I'm so mad at myself because if I had realized in August, I could've retaken Chem then.

    Both the Shady Grove and Baltimore campuses have their unique advantages and disadvantages - like living in a small town vs. a big city. You should pick the place where you will feel most comfortable and/or where it is most convenient. In any case, the fabulous nursing education you will receive is the same - same books, same tests, same standards for clinicals and the same diploma. Go Maryland!

    Hello everyone,

    I was looking at the postings in this forum on and off. People seem to enjoy attending school in Baltimore. I'm glad I made a right choice.

    Still waiting on responses from other programs.

    Grey Lady,

    2 questions:

    My status is still Complete Ready for Review and has not changed to Committee Ready. Should I be concerned?

    I am currently taking my last two prerequisites (both science). In your description of the status progression, you described Provisional Admit as accepted provided last transcripts are all grades of B or better. If I receive B's in both classes, I will not have the 3.0 science GPA requirement stated on the website. With Provisional Admit, is that requirement waived or decided on an individual basis? Or does the 3.0 science GPA requirement stand?

    A lot of the clinicals for Baltimore students are done at the University of Maryland Medical Center right across the street from the School of Nursing. Some of the Shady Grove students will do clinicals there as well. Shady Grove students will have clinicals, in addition to Washington, in Montgomery and Frederick counties including Shady Grove Adventist which is about a mile away from the Shady Grove campus. It is wise for students to aim for clinicals in a variety of settings as each one has its own character and way of doing things. They will never get this opportunity again to be exposed to so many different ones. It's a great way to see where they fit best and many students end up getting jobs at one of their clinical sites.

    There won't be much progress this week as we are on spring break. If your status has not changed as of today, it will likely not change before the middle of next week so give your computer a rest. I am afraid that is all I can tell you at the moment.
