    I am sorry Ninotan - I am about to graduate from UMB-SON, but I can tell you that the first time I applied I too was rejected. I knew I was competitive, so I re-wrote and re-wrote my essay until it was the best that I could do, reapplied and was accepted in the first round.
    I cannot tell people enough when I do open houses etc how important that essay is.
    best of luck with whatever you decide to do.

    Hi! I just graduated from Shady Grove. To answer your question - it is really, really difficult to complete the program without a car. Our classes were on the Shady Grove campus, and our clinicals ranged from Shady Grove Adventist to Suburban to Holy Cross to UMMC to Sheppard Pratt to Children's. As of now, the only two options for pediatric clinical are UMMC and Children's. That being said, you could try and schedule your clinicals to get sites you could access with public transportation - everyone registers at the same time though, and there is absolutely no guarantee you will get what you want. I would strongly, strongly recommend having a car. Hope that helps!
