    UMSON CNL Fall 2017

    As of right now there are still dozens of people at both Complete and Ready for Review and Committee Ready. These statuses simply mean that the applicant is in the pipeline for a decision. If you are not Rejected or Wait Listed (and there are applicants at those statuses) you are still in the running for a seat in the fall cohort.

    Different strokes for different folks - both campuses have their advantages. I don't think you can tie teaching quality to location. The Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching award has been awarded three times, Two out of three were to Shady Grove faculty. Whichever campus you attend you will get a world class nursing education.

    I do not know - they are releasing them in batches as final decisions are made. Not all decisions have been made and they are not being made in alphabetical order.

    There is no specified number. Wait List people are qualified and would get an offer once a seat is available. It is defferent every semester - it just depends on the quality of the applicant pool and how many of them turn down our offer.

    It should not make you nervous - there is a long way to go yet. Rejected applicants have been notified although I don't know if all of them have. Once all the seats are filled the remaining applicants will be wait listed. As each applicant turns down our offer, we fill that seat from the wait list. Also, some applicants will change their minds, run into financing difficulty or just generally get cold feet. Some even find out they applied for the wrong campus and the one they really wanted is full. We take 10 to 15% of the class from the wait list. My advice to all of you is to try not to figure things out - you can't - just be patient as much as you can and don't check your status more than once a day.

    About half the total number of seats have offers out which includes all the partnership students have been made as of yesterday. More will likely be made today but I have no idea how many.

    Provisional admit simply means the last transcripts for outstanding courses have not yet been received and it applies to both traditional and pathway students.

    What that number does NOT tell you is how many of those 400 will be rejected, how many were not serious and did not even finish their application, how many will reject our offer and how many will lose their seat because they got a C in their last prerequisite. Those numbers are not firm until the admissions process is over and the classes are complete. Typically, however, both campuses receive 2 to 3 applicants per seat and it varies from one semester to the next. So you really can't predict your chances based on the number of applicants.

    It depends. I can tell you that if you are Provisional Admit as of right now, a B- will not cause your offer to be rescinded. But a C probably would, especially in a science course. Don't cut it too close!

    They will release decisions when the vast majority have been made. A specific date cannot be predicted. It takes 8 to 10 weeks, on average, after the application deadline.

    Committee Ready means your application materials are complete, have been triple-checked, and are ready to be voted on by the admissions committees. Your application at this status will stay that way until a decision about your acceptance into the program has been made and entered into the system. If accepted, your Committee Ready status will change to Accept Applicant if all your prerequisites were completed before the application deadline - OR - it will change to Provisional Admit which means you are admitted provided that all your outstanding courses are completed with a grade of B or better.

    They really want academic references. If you look at the form for references you will see the checkboxes at the bottom which indicate what information they are looking for. Basically we want some evidence that you are capable of high quality academic work. You can certainly include one or more professional references for additional information but those are not substitutes for an academic reference. When you ask your professors for a reference, maybe you could tell them a little about yourself or send them some work you did for their class to help them remember you. In any case, your application materials are reviewed very carefully to get an in depth picture of you. If your application is not strong, a glowing reference can really help. If your application is really strong, references do not matter quite as much but they do matter.

    If you are a Provisional Admit and you receive a C in any course, your file will be re-examined and a decision made on a case by case basis. Deferrals are granted for extenuating circumstances only.

    1. No, there are still openings on both campuses that have to be filled. 2. That's the goal. But there are things out of anyone's control that can change that. 3. No it does not. Committee Ready means they are currently under consideration. I know you are under a lot of pressure, but hang in there. Best of luck to all of you.

    SSIP sessions are Baltimore students and include guided group class registration. Shady Grove students get the same content as in SSIP sessions at their Orientation and can register as soon as their Approval to Register form has been approved by Kathie Dever. You will have to be on campus four days a week for classes and labs and the fifth day will be for seminars, simulations, validations, clinical days and other mandatory events. Count on five days a week, Mon - Fri for full time students.
