Applying to grad school here. In doing research, it is a great school . They offer a lot to many. I chose here because they offer and online program that I am interested in. I am a stay at home mom, with 2 kids in school. This flexibility for online will allow me to change careers at the age of 49.

The campus size is perfect, all the classes are within 10-15 walk. Faculty are very warm and great. Lecture classes aren't that big in size where as a student you feel distant. Professors are always available. Though the learning environment is great, one thing that really bugs me is the parking arrangement. It is really hard to find parking spot, especially from 9 am to 2 pm. Some of the buildings need to get upgraded, technology wise.
Solid experience, had to work very hard for my finance degree. I landed a nice job afterwards. Umbc has an excellent reputation that whereever I go people recognize how the school has a tough academic curriculum.
