I just withdrew from the UT waitlist and finally committed to the University of Maryland. Anyone joining me there next year?

I'll be there too in the fall. If you want to, visit the Maryland Law message board I set up at http://s9.invisionfree.com/Maryland_Law_School/ There's a bunch of people on there who are going to Maryland in the fall so that we can start to get to know each other a little bit and talk about next year.

I am also a future Terp. I committed after visiting the law school two weeks ago. It's going to be great studying law there.

Hey Kevin. Have you thought about there you are going to live?

I recently decided on Maryland over George Mason. Are any of you considering a JD/MBA?

Glad to see some people finally discussing Maryland. We get no talk here on LSD. Anyways, to KingRalph, I'm going to be living at the Univrsity Suites, which is about 20 feet from the law school. It's one of the 2 school-associated apartment complexes, and I think it's listed in the acceptance packet. I don't know who I'm living with yet, but they rent room by room anyways. To Remiz22, I committed right after I visited too. I just felt really welcomed and I felt like I could really see myself enjoying 3 years there. And to tankbrain, I'm not considering the JD/MBA. How does that work anyways with the Business School down in College Park? Oh and by the way, I already posted the link on this forum, but go to that discussion board I set up and register on it so we've got a nice, easy place to post stuff (finding housing, etc.). Hope to see you all soon and keep hearing from you.

Smith has a center inside the new UMB School of Nursing building near the law school. You can take evening classes there while you study law.

Good deal. Is that what you're doing or have you not decided yet? I personally have no interest in an MBA but it's a good idea to have a spot for the law students to do it without having to drive all the way down to the main campus.

Future Terp here too!  I applied late and was waitlisted, and just got called today and offered a space!  I am estatic and can't wait to get my official letter.

Heya!  MD here as well.  I grew up in Baltimore and can't want to get out of Connecticut and go back.  It's a great city.  I've been reading a lot on the boards about how UMD doesn't place well in terms of jobs.  Is that true?  I know it's a top 50 school, so it sort of seems unlikely to me.

Any thoughts?
