Hey would someone mind chancing me?

I am going in with 24 college credits, my college gpa is a 3.26, my high school weighted gpa is a 4.1, my act is a 26, and I would be an in state student. Also, does anyone know if the current pandemic will effect decisions in any way?

    I don’t know how the pandemic will affect things. I was wondering too. Maybe I could contact admissions and ask if decisions will be delayed because of the current situation?

    Hey just so everyone knows, I just called UMD and they said transfer decisions will still be coming out mid to late April.

    Last year decisions came out on April 20th, so my best guess is that they’ll be coming out April 17th this year
    Also does anyone know when class registration is for regular UMD students and if we get in as transfer students if we will get last pick for classes?

    I have a lot of friends at UMD and they have already picked their classes for fall 2020. They all told me that we'd pick our classes during orientation

    Oh no 😬 I guess that means we do get last pick. Hopefully if we get in there is space left in the classes we want!

    Does anyone know if UMD holds class spaces for new freshman and transfers? I know my college does but it is a mid sized private university so I'm not sure if state schools are similar.

    @swimgirl838 I don’t know. I tried looking online for some info on that and didn’t come up with anything. I would suggest you ask someone at UMD about it

    @swimgirl838 @RBevan - The following link lists all the courses being offered by UMD in the Fall.

    If you click on a given subject, like CHEM or ENGL. it will show all the courses in that subject. Then click on "Show Sections" and you will see which ones still have openings.

    Keep in mind that incoming Freshman have not yet registered for classes

    Do you guys think there is any chance that (if we are accepted) they will give us more than 30 days to commit? I will also be waiting on a decision from GW that comes out in June and would like to have the opportunity to consider both of my options at the same time (if I get in to both)

    Wow did GW push their decision back till June because of COVID-19 or was it always that late? From what I am hearing, most schools are pushing back decision dates and I am expecting UMD to as well.

    No, it’s always been this late. I’m hoping COVID doesn’t delay it any further! Ok that’s good. I guess we’ll find out when we get the decision

    Anyone know if the deposit date was pushed back at all for RD freshman? That would be a good indicator of whether or not ours will be pushed back

    Anyone contacted them recently to ask about when decisions are coming out? I know it’ll probably be a week or two but I’m really anxious to know 😬

    I'm super anxious too! I called about a wee ago and they said mid/late April but wouldn't give me an exact date. If anyone gets an exact date let us know!
