I went on a tour today. I asked about the waitlist and they said that they are starting to look at it. So thats good news hopefully. Parts of the campus are really nice but I wish the sections were not so big. Good luck!
My only hesitation with Maryland is the idea of living in Baltimore. From what I have heard, Baltimore isn't a safe place to live. With UConn's ranking falling I am nervous about going there as well even though it is a great school too.
