    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?
    You should not be concerned about your status. The only people who should be concerned are those who are still at Requirements Outstanding.

    If you receive an offer, your current GPA will have already been considered as well as the GPAs for all other applicants. At that point all you would need to do is get those B's or better.

    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.
    Oh, I haven't even looked at my app...until just now, haha My computer can't take a rest as I am in two classes right now and must use it I check this site every few days or so, that's all! I figured since I was here last night, I would check and ask.

    Thanks for all you do!!

    Grey Lady,

    Thanks so much for your quick reply. You are a wealth of information to all UM-SON hopefuls. I have specified UM-SON Shady Grove in my application, so I am hoping to meet you in the fall!

    Has anyone gotten any news as to when we will find out? I don't want to start harassing and call!

    The goal has always been to make all offers by April 15 but things have gone better than expected. That is not to say that there could be some sort of unanticipated hold up, but things are looking good right now. (But not for THIS week.)

    The school tries to call accepted students in addition to mailing formal acceptance letters. Make sure your phone number is available and correct - they will use the one you put in your application.

    Good luck to ALL of you!

    Hi Grey Lady! Thanks for being such a great resource! I was wondering if UMD SON has an open house of some sort for accepted applicants once the process is over? An event where you get to meet current students, professors, other accepted applicants?

    Yes there will be events for accepted students on both campuses and usually there is a picnic and a baseball game at Camden Yards for all accepted students in Baltimore in the summer.

    I hope this is the week. I'm so tired of people at work asking me if I got into school. I think they are just waiting to call dibs on my office.
