Congrats!!Thanks so much! I am so excited because I love baltimore and want to practice in the city I grew up in. I have heard how there is no better school if you want to practice in Maryland.
Yes there is a mandatory grading curve for first year students. The average must fall between 2.25 - 2.75. They will scare you with the details during orientation but it sounds much worse than it is. On the positive note, most of the prof. are very good. I received over a 3.0 my first semester and hoping to maintain it this semester.
Good luck and welcome to the family.
