    Did you write a good personal statement and have you finished all of your prereqs? I feel like those things could definitely help your application. 3.77 is really strong though! Everything that I've heard about UMB seems to indicate that they really look at the whole applicant, so I wouldn't be bummed out because you feel like your numbers might not be where you think they should be.

    I do think that my personal statement was good. I made it sound a bit different to stand out; it was very personal yet still on key with what they wanted. I've finished all of my science prereqs but I'm still in stats, nutrition, and my last humanities class. I'm going to apply to volunteer at a hospital near me in case I'm not accpeted. I've also become a part of a leadership program at my current school, and I'm going to join the health and wellness club. Hoping all of this will make my resume look better for if I have to reapply!! Oh and of course I'm going to retake the TEAS. I got a 76.8 the first time. I got 80's in the reading and math sections, but I got in the 70's in the science and english which I'm embarrassed about!! I don't know what my percentile for UMSON is because my school (AACC) put their program down on my test.

    I just came to work on my application and realized...I MISSED THE DEADLINE!!!!!!!!!!

    I am a blubbering, sick in my stomach, mess, right now!!!!!!!! I had the 15th embedded in my head!!!

    Oh my God, I can't even come close to believing I have screwed this up!!!! I had three schools I was applying to this go round, and evidently the 15th was for another school.

    Dear Jesus, I can't even come up with words right now. I am literally sick...

    SB113,

    I'm so sorry! I almost did the same thing. That was Towson's deadline for last month. I wish you the best with Towson and the other school. Keep your head up.

    Yes, I can apply for a year from now, but I have busted my rear end over the past year to make RIGHT where I went WRONG when I first applied and was rejected. Retook my one science C and earned an A. Finished all other pre-reqs with A's, am volunteering at two different departments in Shock Trauma, rewrote my essay and resume, etc.

    It's sickening that I made such a detrimental mistake! I took the advice of a very wise lady here and decided to apply to more than once school, so I had the 15th written for UMSON...which obviously was incorrect. So now, I can't even apply for the ONE school that means the most to me.

    Sick doesn't even cover how I feel.

    SB113, Have you considered asking admissions for an exception? I did the same exact thing with another program and had it set in my mind that it was due one day later. I hand delivered my application and they took it. You never know.... I would go for it if I were you.

    Does anyone know when decisions will start coming out for the spring? Will it be Oct/Nov timeframe?

    Oh please! I asked all the way up to God (the Dean), but I was still given the same answer...no ;(

    Oh I'm so sorry!! :/ You know that what is meant to work out, will. Even though that is never what you want to hear.

    Good luck!!

    I hope it works out for you, SB113!

    I've been volunteering at UMMC now for a few months and have never felt unsafe walking in the area during the afternoon/early evening, but this past weekend I was followed by a really loud, aggressive guy for about 3 blocks. I was with two other people when it happened and we wound up literally running up to a cop to ask for help. It really shook me up and got me thinking about the safety around campus. Anyone familiar with Baltimore? Is this a common occurrence or more of an isolated incident? I really appreciate any advice! I'm not at all familiar with the area.

    I live in the city and ive never encountered that but then again i dont walk alone, at night, and I drive everywhere. I got lost downtown around lexington and 1st mariner for half an hour at 930pm a few weeks ago. I was dressed a little differently than most too. It sucked but no one approached me or even looked at me. I guess it depends on the night but i dont think its bad around UMMC since its a lot of young students in the area.
