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

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.

Degree: Pharmacy
Graduation Year: 2018

The University of Maryland, School of Pharmacy is an excellent program that is tailored to the students. The staff and fellow administration are friendly, accommodating, and will often go above and beyond to help the students. There are also many organizations that encourage students to become involved outside of school and to network with health care providers. The University of Maryland curriculum makes sure that students are prepared for the clinical/retail pharmacy setting and encourages students to apply the education as competent providers in the pharmacy profession. The main "cons" of attending this school pertain to the surrounding area. Baltimore is not the safest of cities nor is it the cleanest. However, the security and transportation services do make up for this problem and their reliability is always top notch. Furthermore, Living expenses are high and it is often difficult to find a reasonably priced house or apartment.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2016

A pro of grad school is all the valauable life long skills that are obtained. Graduate schools enables you with the skills related to your profession and those of life. Balance is key in graduate school. While trying to balance out papers, exams, days to study, working and still maintaing personal relationships, life can seem almost impossible at times. There are many days you wonder why you did it and will it be worth it in the end. This leads into the cons of graduate school. You feel as if there is not enough hours within the day to get it all done. However, I believe that this temporary con is merely temporarily and the pros out way the cons in graduate school.
