    Yeah could be you clicked on the shady grove option by mistake on your application. Let them know.

    I'm still at committee ready. Wish they looked at all waitlisted students from fall first...

    Hi Grey Lady,

    What makes a candidate a competitive applicant? I was waitlisted for Fall. Is high GPA a major factor? Thank you for answering our questions.
    UMSON does not just look at gpa. UMSON factors in repeated classes with gpa. Say for example a person fails a math class with a D and then retakes it and pass with an A . Usually the d grade will fall off the person gpa and will only factor in the A grade . But with UMSON, they will factor in both the failing and passing grade into the gpa which may lower the overall gpa. Some individuals don't realize that and maybe actually be applying with a lower gpa than they think. They're looking for well rounded students. I know quite a few number of people that came into my adn program with 4.0 gpa and could not pass a nursing course to save their lives, so having a high gpa is not everything.

    I'm new to this thread and have been following it since September. I'm still on committee ready and becoming extremely anxious and worried. It's been over a week since they started releasing acceptances. But I'm trying to keep my head up and hope for the best. That's all we can do now at this point anyways. I wish everyone luck and congrats to those who got in!

    Has anyone heard back today? I applied for Baltimore campus and feel like since I haven't heard anything its time to just think about other options.
