I was involved in extra curricular activities, wrote aDec 09 2010Aerospace Engineering
I was involved in extra curricular activities, wrote a good admittance paper, and showed significant improvement with my grades; so I would recommend, learn from mistakes and improve, and be involved in extra activities.
SAT: 1400 Male
Its not hardDec 03 2010Architecture
Its not hard. There is a literal absense of architectural talent at that school. Most of this has to do with the bottom feeding faculty.

I got in through applying online and calling backOct 28 2010Biology
I got in through applying online and calling back probably 10-20 times trying to figure out where the "misplaced" part of my application went.
I would recommend students either apply somewhere else, or have an in.
ACT: 28 Female

If you want to go to Maryland, make sureJul 13 2010Anthropology
If you want to go to Maryland, make sure you follow the directions on the application. Do not go above and beyond and send a video of yourself or anything creative like that. Just write an essay that states why you want to go to Maryland, what you can contribute, what your experiences have prepared you for, things like that. Also, take a lot of AP and Honors courses, do well on your SAT (I had above a 2100), etc. I got into Maryland a month after I applied early decision. My grades in high school were 3.78+, I played tennis, I had a lot of honors, etc. So, if you do that and more, you can probably get in! Also, If you are an out of state student, you have a better chance of getting in because of your out of state money. It has NOTHING to do with who you are, so don't get excited. ;-)
