University of Maryland Shady Grove Campus - Fall 2013

  1. Hello Everyone,

    Thought I'd start I thread for anyone out there who has also applied for The University of Maryland School of Nursing @ the Shady Grove Campus for Fall 2013. I've read through numerous old "All Nurses" threads of students waiting to see if they've been accepted or not, but haven't seen a thread yet for Fall 2013.

    I spoke with the Office of Admissions about a week ago and was told I should be hearing back either late March / early April, but I requested early consideration for acceptance due to my military status and program. So at a minimum it'll be another month before I hear if I got in or not.

    So I know there are others out there also playing the waiting game. Waiting (and hoping) they get accepted. Please feel free to chime in and share your thoughts, concerns, ect....

    I am waiting to hear back, but from the Baltimore location! I am nervous. I applied to other BSN programs in MD but UMSON is by far the best. Good luck!

    Hello Everyone,
    So just wanted to follow up on my initial post. After a long work week, I came home to find a letter from U of MD in the mail, an acceptance letter that is. So I'll be starting @ the Shady Grove campus Fall 2013. Have you guys been notified as well?

    I found out I got into Shady Grove on Thursday!

    Anyone still have outstanding courses? Anyone need to take summer classes? I'm nervous about finishing up these last prereqs.

    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.
