My graduate program is top ranked with great faculty and networking opportunities. There could be more diversity in the program and opportunities to network with students in other programs. But overall thus far this is a great experience.

Fantastic program, academic quality has nothing to envy to other ''top tier'' universities like University of Michigan, MIT, UC Berkeley, and other universities with a seemingly higher prestige. The graduate program at UMCP, feels to me, like an underrated graduate school. Any graduate student from UMCP is at the level (or even higher) of any graduate student from any top tier university. One seriously big problem of UMD are stipends at the absurdly high cost of living of College Park, which is dominated by the prices of DC metropolitan area. The stipends are far from commensurate with the cost of living. It is also something notorious the lack of subsidized housing. The ''supposedly subsidized housing'' provided by the university is neither enough, since there are just a few apartments, neither subsidized, since it is way too expensive.

A very supportive and flexible environment. It requires lots of hard work, but those who can self-motivate will thrive.

The math PhD program is great. I highly recommend it if you are interested in applied math, dynamical systems, geometry, or harmonic analysis.

I am in the AMSC (applied mathematics and scientific computation) program. I have received great support throughout the experience. The classes are small, and the professors make themselves available. I really enjoy working with my mentor - despite how busy he is, he makes time for us to hold weekly update meetings.

The AMSC program at UMCP is a great program for anyone who would like to earn a PhD in an applied math field. But you need to come focused and prepared, the work can be stressful but it is manageable.
