The status tracker thing on MD's website never worked right for me last year, so be careful putting too much stock in it! 

I was a WL last year, and sent a letter of continuing interest indicating it was my first choice and got pulled off the waitlist like 2 weeks later.

Good luck guys!

Huntre17,
Were you a preferred or regular waitlist last year?  Are you attending Maryland now?

I don't actually remember, I don't think it said anything about being a preferred wait list.

I am a 1L at MD, so feel free to ask any questions.

I'm on the preferred waitlist

I'm hoping that it's an YP

the letter said that most people on it get in

and that there is no second evaluation

so I'm not sending LOCI

Did the letter give an indication of when people will start getting in?  The regulars are supposed to get a look-in starting beginning of May.

Re: Waitlisted @ Maryland- whatr my chances?

K, so Im a student at the University of Maryland, College Park. I love Maryland, I bleed the black and gold. Maryland is my first choice by far, but I was put on the regular WL (I heard from them in December or January). I sent a LOCI. My LSAT is 160 and GPA is 3.436. I am white but my dad is a Soviet refugee and I speak 3 different languages-which i guess makes me diverse, unless thats not the "diversity" that UMD seeks to celebrate and augment. What do y'all think are my chances of getting in?

hedge your bets...to assume to go to a school off the waitlist is foolish for any school.

With the jump to 37 this yr, md will prob try to stay up there by raising their bar.  pure speculation on my part.

oh, im not assuming to go to a school off the waitlist...i just really want to go. I've heard that its not uncommon for a number of people at UMD to get in off that waitlist. I aint purchasing an apartment in Bmore by any means though.
