<p>I am a Maryland resident and mom to three kids. </p>
<p>I am wondering what the reputation is for University of Maryland (either College Park or Baltimore County, or both) among people from out of state.</p>
<p>Is it considered a "good" school? A "competitive" school? An "easy" school? A "party" school?
What are the strengths and drawbacks that you hear as someone out of state?</p>
<p>Thanks for your input. I'm really curious!</p>
