    Grey Lady,

    Does UMSON calculate GPA by overall or by prereq GPA?

    Wow, so we get notified by phone?? Hmm, I am nervous! Will they leave a voicemail if I don't pick up? I am a pretty busy person and I would hate to accidentally miss that call!

    UMSON calculates 3 GPAs, overall, science, and nursing pre-requisites. The admissions staff will try to call all accepted students but will only leave a generic "Please call back" message.

    Has anyone been labeled as committee ready yet? I'm so nervous :\

    Only a little over half of the applicants are Committee Ready. Please do not worry if your status has not changed to Committee Ready - it really does not mean anything to the applicant. Acceptances will not be announced until ALL applications have been voted on by the admissions committee. Also, next week is spring break so the admissions committee will not be meeting so it is not at all likely that decisions will be made this month. I know it's hard, but hang in there!

    Thank you Grey Lady I'm just worried about taking my outstanding EN109 course, which depends on whether or not I get accepted. I will have to take it at MC because CP doesn't offer any English courses at that level. I still haven't been able to figure out whether or not EN395 will be good enough to fulfill that requirement, since it is a writing class for health professionals. The CPR certification is also something I really need to start looking into!

    I am so nervous! And anxious. I don't know what to do with myself!

    If you get a CPR card in May or later in the summer, it will be good for two years and will not expire while you are in school unless you go an extra semester. PLEASE make sure you get the right CPR card - only two are acceptable. Any others are a waste of your time and money. See the SON website under Accepted Students for details.

    I have a question for Grey Lady:
    what are the odds for an out of state applicant? I understand from a few conversations with admissions that Maryland applicant get priority. are there spots left open also for out of state applicants?
  10. by   guest10
    An out of state status is not an issue. Yes, because Maryland is a land grant college it must admit a certain percentage of in state students - I don't know what that number is. But I do know that so many Marylanders apply - thanks to a very affordable in state tuition rate - we have never had to worry about it. So, no - we do not even bother to lable an application "out of state" and there is no quota for out of state students. There has not been a need for one.

    Hello, I have a question: How many students are admitted into UMSON?
  12. by   guest10
    The Baltimore campus takes 80 to 90 BSN students and the Shady Grove campus takes about 50.

    Does anyone know about when they are going to tell applicants if they are admitted or rejected?
