I've heard how awesome it is.  Can someone tell me if there is a grading curve?
Any advice?

Congrats!!
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.

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.
