Some interesting facts about UMD Law School

The University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law (Maryland Carey Law), located in downtown Baltimore, was established in 1816 and began regular instruction in 1824. It is the third-oldest law school in the nation, but its innovative programs make it one of the liveliest and most dynamic today. The University of Maryland campus is located within blocks of courthouses, government agencies, restaurants, and entertainment venues. Home to the University of Maryland’s professional schools in law, medicine, nursing, pharmacy, social work, and dentistry, the Baltimore campus is undergoing a renaissance of its own. Newly built student housing; a state-of-the-art student center with a lap pool, workout rooms, and space for intramural competition; a row of new restaurants; and two major theaters have brought a vibrancy to the neighborhood, which is just blocks away from the well-known Inner Harbor area. A campus shuttle and free city bus make getting to other Baltimore neighborhoods easy and convenient.

Baltimore’s proximity to other major East Coast cities is another plus. Students can easily travel by train to Washington, DC (40 minutes); Wilmington, DE (40 minutes); Philadelphia (1 hour); or New York City (2.5 hours). Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport is less than 10 miles from the law school building and is accessible by light rail. It is, for many, the preferred airport in the Washington, DC, area. Maryland Carey Law has taken advantage of this location to become an integral part of the Baltimore–Washington legal and business community.

@speedycar57: there’s still a good chance tbh, do they want a loci?
@lazersquiddles: they basically said they don't really care if you send one or not
got an invite to interview
@speedycar57: oh wow congratulations!
im very confused at an interview given i wasnt even WL
is UMD basically have a 165 or fuck off?
@PartTimeLawHopeful: can confirm this is not true. My lsat was much lower and got in
@speedycar57: i was invited to interview and was accepted. It's a good sign. Your stats are similar to mine so the low gpa and lsat is probably the reason
Wondering if anyone here is facing the same situation I am. I am excited to 100% commit to UMD, but I am hesitant on Baltimore. Any others?
i got in :)
@speedycar57: damn!! From feeling hopeless to an A. Congrats!!
thank you!!
@speedycar57: I have no idea who you are, but congrats! I know you've been waiting a while based on your comments. I'll see you there this fall.
Thank you! I’m very grateful and excited for this opportunity
Can anyone offer any insight on being waitlisted? If so, when did you hear back?
I don’t even think they’ve gone through waitlists yet tbh
they said no more decisions this week because of graduation
I just got off the phone with them
They also said they have no scholarship money left
Talked to their Fin Aid, need-based money will slowly trickle in, potentially even after school term has started.
@KnownV8: those are loans tho right? Not grants??
@Zuzu732: I believe the rep was speaking about grants! Sorry I couldn’t be specific :(
Anyone know when they’ll start pulling off the waitlist?
How are they still waitlisting people 😂
