Wait list for fall 2014!

Ok so I got my application letter and it said that I was on the waitlist for the 2014 fall semester. It goes on to say how competitive it is to get into umd blah blah blah. At the bottom it says that I will receive a final decision August 15th. What does this mean? Did I get in? Are they just bsing me? I got my AA in computer information science from Pgcc last semester and I'm currently at Umuc. Anybody else experiencing this?!

    I'm on the same boat with you. I got the email stating that UMD has a decision, so I logged into my application and got the same email as you. I emailed someone in the admissions to ask what the next steps are, and what are the chances I get it. I hope to hear from them soon.

    @justin1992 are you a transfer student? And what are your grades like? I called admissions and they told me that if people decide not to attend than people from the waitlist will be accepted. I have to wait until August 15th which is crazy considering that fall semester starts in September. Also she said that only freshmen get the chance for spring acceptance if they are wait listed in fall, not transfer students! Ahh the anxiety is gonna drive me nuts!

    @Camq897 yeah I'm a transfer student. I'm actually graduating this May from Montgomery College. My grades are good, I'm about a 3.0 gpa. I've emailed admissions and they told me that there isn't much to do but sit and wait. Waiting is going to drive me crazy too. If I don't get accepted in the Fall I have nothing else to do but apply again and wait. If that happens, I guess I have to work full time.
