I'll start: I'm going to UMBC which stands for University of Maryland, Baltimore County. It is an honors university independent from the whole College Park ordeal which a lot of people confuse it with and think we are just a satellite campus. Overall campus life is great, it's a pretty technical school so there aren't many crazy frat parties as you would expect. Instead we usually have small parties for close friends that get out of hand. Sadly, a lot of people complain that the campus is dead and nobody is ever there on weekends which is totally not true and I feel like those people just don't try hard enough to engage in social life. Academically, its very rigorous. My roommate freshman and sophomore year transferred out to UMD and his GPA soared from a 2.5 to 3.75 and he claims that the professors at UMBC make things way too difficult for no reason. I've had many friends fail classes and have to switch to the five year plan, I do not know of a single CS student that has graduated in 4 years. As far as administration goes, I cannot stand it. Everything has a fee and takes far too long. I've had a friend who failed to transfer out because UMBC did not send out her transcript in time even though she gave them plenty of time to do so. Although the students here are very friendly I cannot stand the faculty especially the administration.
