Degree: Dentistry
Graduation Year: 2017

This is a great program (residency) with a strong history in the roots of dentistry. My program is very good but expects a lot of self-motivated learning. Formal lectures are rare but welcome source of information. For the most part, the student must learn by doing, so the residency is more of an "apprenticeship". Enjoy all of the faculty and co-residents though.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2017

The Pathologists' Assistant program at the University of Maryland, Baltimore is made of up approximately 10 students and has no staff devoted 100% of the time to the program. The small class size is definitely a pro. The much lower cost of attendance compared to all other PathA programs makes up for lack of a full time staff member, and all of the faculty are very supportive! Baltimore itself is a pro (many great area hospitals to train at) and a con (some unsafe neighborhoods close to campus).

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2016

Pro's: The school's professors have a variety of experience and expertise and a passion for teaching. In addition, the school is nationally known for successfully preparing students for the clinical license exam. In addition, due to the known high crime level in the area, students are able to move their car to a closer parking garage, in which their classes are held at night, at no charge. Con's: The professionalism and customer service of the staff is at times very low in quality. When you call for assistance, it is not uncommon that you have someone who appears to be annoyed, which is shown in their tone and word usage. The school of social work building is one of the only buildings on campus that has not had renovations and still has chalk boards, small classrooms and tiny desks that remind you of high school.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2017

The University of Maryland, Baltimore is strategically located about an hour away from the nation’s health policy-making epicenter. There is a vast amount of resources available to students who are interested in conducting in-depth evidence-based research, lobbying to change policies, or engaging in social justice issues and/or public service. The academic opportunities are ubiquitous. You just have to dig for those resources and network as much as possible. I will say that I don't think this institution is as globally minded as it could be. The Center for Global Education has endeavored to create more global opportunities for those who intended to work internationally.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2017

The graduate program provides academic flexibility, allowing students to take day, evening and weekend classes. The students in the program come from very different backgrounds allowing for excellent class discussions, diversity in experiences and expectations of future work environments.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2016

There needs to be a few technological advances in the class scheduling department. Cons are there is very limited flexibility when it comes to choosing classes.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2016

The program integrates education through classroom and practicum methods which allows the student to build a professional skill set while learning. The school is also affordable. However, there are limited scholarships available through the school. There is also no official school career center for students.
