I am on hold at Maryland too. Are you sure there is a difference between hold and waitlist? Also what do you like about U of Maryland so much?
Thisis1984 I think we are in the same class this semester with Graber. I am in the 11 o'clock discussion. If you got into Berkely, then you are def. making the right decision to turn down umd. I will probably go to umd if I get in off hold cause I do want to practice in state. If I don't get into Maryland, I am on like 5 more waitlists at schools like gmu, w&m and w&l so maybe one of those call up. More likely though I will end up going to Temple or Chicago Kent. See you in class Monday.
University of Maryland is my 1st choice also. Placed on their WL in Feb . When I visited Maryland they told me that if you are placed on Hold then you will either be admitted or moved to the WL. No one is rejected directly off hold. However, you can be rejected directly off of WL . Last year a friend of mine was placed on hold then was moved to WL and eventually was accepted the first week in June.
