I bet that due to the jump in rankings, they will have more matriculate = less off the waitlist.  Not looking good.

Freedom if information act to obtain waitlist info??  Thats a first haha.

that is an advantage of MD being a public U

i dont know all the details of the public records code here in md (ive only filed one a couple of times) the state public records codes usually apply to government againces in the executive branches of the state (the board of regents and u system would probly  count)...there are a number of exceptions for legaly classifiedc info or infor on on ongoing investigation..etc

i dont see how last years stats would fit any of the well known exceptions

i dont know if your skeptical or just surpised...if the latter...go ahead and try:

usallly you just have to write a letter asking for specific info and pay a nominal admin fee.

in md they have 30 days to tell you whether they will comply or whther they think that info is exempt or classified

Anyone know if Maryland has a second deposit date, and if so when?

I was taken off the waitlist and only had one $500 payment.

Thanks..I called admissions a few days ago, and the word was that they had "more than enough deposits" at the time.  I was hoping a second deposit date would trigger some openings...not looking good :(

Yea, as i predicted, based on the fact that no one has been pulled off the regular list yet, I dont think many people are going to be pulled this yr.  They have a very small class to begin with and the fact that they went up in rankings im sure sent a lot of people on the fence to send in deposits.

This sucks....i need to start looking for housing soon at my backup school if MD doesn't end up pulling me off.

the way some schools deposits work is that they are refundable paritally up to some date..and after that date not refundable any more....

that date may cause a bunch of people to withdraw if there is one...


OTOH...maybe their seat deposit is wholly unrefundable...


im begining to think the way it works is that the best schools can make their waitlist decisions first...then when people know they can withdraw from lower schools..and then those schools can make decisions..even the schools have to deal with the pecking order

no there is a priority waitlist.  100% sure about this.

I'm on the priority waitlist, so yes, it exists.

gee thats weird...how was nccipy taken off the regular waitlist while Huntington is still on the priority one?

thats really weird..esp given that shortly after they took nccipy of they say they have the waitlist on hold b/c they have a lot of deposits!
