Guys, got a mail few weeks back from UMD to complete my application by 7th Jan (deadline is 15th for the round), as UMD admissions representatives are travelling to India in the end of January for personal interviews.

Anyone got a interview invite, yet ?

I've been admitted to Smith with decent scholarship.
Most probably, I am joining Smith.
Can someone post here the exact break-up of the expenses one incur while studying at College Park for 2 years? Any current student or Alumni?

Also, guys, please let me know if anyone has started processing Financial Documents? I have got an e-mail from Maryland Graduate house requesting me to send these documents. Can someone enlighten me on this aspect?

Got an interview invite. Saw their interview slots. They have dedicated 3 full days from 29- 31 Jan for interviews in Mumbai. 8 slots a day from 9am to 5pm.

Anybody else facing a similar situation?


Can anybody tell me the approximate 'non-tuition' expenses one would incur at Maryland annually? I'd really appreciate to hear from a current student.


The website quotes this amount as ~20k, but I feel it is way way above than what people actually end up spending.
@sandipanurag Yeah...still waiting. I guess we have to wait until the decision date(15 February )
@mbadiwe @sandipanurag When did you guys submit your application ?
I submitted my application on Jan 7 (keeping the 15 Jan deadline in mind), and I had my interview today.

I was told that the admission decision would come in by mid/end March.

submitted for round 2 deadline and notification should be out on or before feb 15

I applied in R2....I had my interview on 14/01/2013. Awaiting results....

did any one hear about round 2 results ?
