General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Re: Whos decided on Maryland
« on: May 14, 2005, 02:11:46 PM »
Yikes did anyone get the information packet on the new "Technology requirement" at UMD?? Will anyone be requesting a waiver? I mean, I already own a Dell, just not the exact model, and I'm very willing to load any programs that I'll need onto it (I already have the "Student Software Bundle - Word, Excel, etc.). I didn't think I needed to buy a whole new laptop for all the same programs! I have yet to how theirs are "preconfigured" with any special, new programs unique to UMD....any thoughts/info on this?

Hey OriolesFan, thanks for the link :) I read that and I wasn't sure how easy it would be, but apparently it'll be more challenging than I thought. I'm not sure how I'll be able to cover 50% of my total expenses in one summer, and seems doubtful now  :-\

Is anyone here out-of-state? I'm finding the tuition extremely high, and my total expenses will apparently exceed %50k per year!!  :o Is there any way that I can guarantee getting in-state tuition by my second year? How many people can earn $25k during the summer of their first year??  :-\ If you have any suggestions as to how to live the most cheaply in Baltimore (i.e. cheapest place to live, ways to commute) I'm all ears!! Thanks in advance!! :)

Wait List / Re: Hold at Maryland

Hey there beanbeangirl, I was able to reach her on the first try but I definitely think that you're doing the right thing in being persistent. If she doesn't get back to you in a few days, call her again! I'd keep bugging her until I got her on the line, to be honest. Good Luck and I'll keep my fingers crossed for you!! :)

P.S. I also sent an additional LOR, a letter of interest, and kept in email contact with an admissions counselor at UMaryland on a regular basis to inform her of my interest. So basically, I hectored them a lot until they finally let me in  ::) I wish you all the best of luck, and hope to see some of you soon at UMD!!  :)

Hi, for everyone who's curious about what I said to the director, I simply told her the truth. I told her that Maryland was my first choice, and that I would definitely attend if I were accepted. I was completely honest with her, and I am only putting down a deposit at UMaryland because it's my #1 choice, and I passed up other schools for it. Basically, I think that she knew how much that I wanted to go there, and I was forthright about my plans. I also withdrew my waitlist spots from all other schools as soon as I got in there. I only suggest this route if you're completely sure it's where you want to go. I wish you all the best of luck!! :)

Got a couple more scholarship offers from the financial aid office of OSU even though I already withdrew.

I gave up a seat at OSU, so I hope that clears up a spot for someone. Good luck, it's a great school!! :)
