Had a real good GPA, I graduated second inFeb 28 2003Aerospace Engineering
Had a real good GPA, I graduated second in my class, so I had no trouble getting in. If you do well in school, Maryland does recognize your talents ans rewards you accordingly.
SAT: 1550 Male
It is hard for me to say, because whenDec 29 2002Education
It is hard for me to say, because when I got in the standards were a lot different. It has become more and more competitive with SAT scores and Highschool GPA's. I do recommend making an appointment with a financial aid advisor ASAP if that is something you will need.
SAT: 1350 Female
Don't work too hard in high schoolDec 08 2002Aerospace Engineering
Don't work too hard in high school. It'll be a waste of time. This school is not that hard to get into. I know someone who didn't take any enriched/honors courses, had no AP credits, and only a mediocre SAT score and GPA, and he still got in.
SAT: 1380 Male
I tried to be a well rounded student inDec 08 2002Natural Resources
I tried to be a well rounded student in high school. Get good grades, participate in extra curricular activities in and out of school, get a job - basically learn how to balance lots of things at once, that will prepare you for college. Don't forget to fill out the application and send it in early. The earlier the better. UMD is harder to get into now than ever before.
SAT: 1140 Female
I had a lot of activitiesDec 08 2002Architecture
I had a lot of activities. I played 3 sports in High School, I was in 2 4-H clubs and held office positions in the clubs, and I was a girl scout for awhile. I wasn't in any of the school clubs but I guess they would help too. I think SAT's really helped but I didn't go crazy with them I just bought one of those books to refresh my memory on math I hadn't done since Freshman year. My GPA was a low A and my class rank was in the top 30%.
SAT: 1330 Female
