University of Maryland Spring 2010

Students Pre-Nursing


Just wanted to see if there was anyone out there who was planning to apply for Spring 2010. I am looking at applying for this semester. Which campus are you applying to (Baltimore or Shady Grove), what pre reqs you have left, and what your GPA is (if your comfortable sharing it).

I am applying to the Shady Grove campus, I have A&P II, Stats, and Micro left, and I know that so far I have a 3.0 in the Sciences but am pretty sure my total GPA is around a 3.6.

Good Luck!

I wonder what the turnaround time is for UMD SON for Spring 2010 is... when do you find out if you were rejected or not? Is the GPA they are concerned with the GPA for the 59 credits required for admission or CUM GPA? Also, if you have a Pell Grant, do they take those if there is still money in the pell grant from a community college? Thank you so much!

I would like to attend the Baltimore Campus good luck to you too! I wish you much less stress since your GPA seems cut and dry :)

I'm also hoping to apply to the Baltimore campus if I don't get into my school I'm currently waitlisted in for fall 09. I've finished all my prereqs already and I'm pretty sure my cumulative GPA is around a 3.7

From what I heard, I don't have much of a chance at all with a 3.7 at the University of Maryland. I heard it's pretty stiff competition there. I'm pretty sure it requires the NET and I got in the 98th percentile on that test, so hopefully that'll help me out. But as far as I'm concerned, I don't have much of a chance :(

Yes I know it's hard to get in... that's why it's a top 10 school for nursing. I think it was 7th last year. 3.7 is kinda low for UMD SON

I am considering apply to UMB but I'm a little confused about these posts as far as GPA goes...the original post said she has a 3.0 science and a 3.6 overall and seemed confident about a possibility of getting accepted, but bluechick112 and summertimeflowers seem to think that a GPA of 3.7 is too low....what GPA will realistically give me a chance of getting in?

That makes sense...i guess i just didnt really think about how colleges look at community college applicants differently...

I am currently a student at the University of Illinois which has a top ten nursing school and is a division I school so what should I expect as far as GPA if I want to be a competitive family is moving to the D.C. area so technically I will be applying as an in-state student (I don't know if that makes a difference) but I want to have a realistic expectation when I apply to UMD SON so please be get back to me as soon as possible.

Thanks :)

I think Maryland requires 12+ months of residency to qualify as an in-state status student. Because your school has a Nursing program I would meet the 2+2 requirement of a 3.25 CUM GPA and science prereqs a 3.5 GPA. If you don't meet the in state status of living in MD for 12 months before you start then expect to really pay a lot for non-resident status until you & your parents reach the 12 months.

Does anyone know if University of Maryland Eastern Shore has dual admission with University of Maryland School of Nursing, I just recently changed majors and i saw that the prerequisites were the ones that UM requires.

Does anyone have any idea?

Hey All,

I'm considering applying for Spring admission into UMB's nursing program, but the deadline is Sept. 1, and the university recommends that applicants submit their applications as early in the respective fall or spring admission cycles as possible. Should I still go ahead and apply; or, do you think it would be wiser to apply early on for Fall admission?

Thanks for your help! :-)
