Few questions about UMD that will help me make my decision by May 1st.
How is campus safety? I've visited the area before, and I can see the campus being a little sketchy a night especially since it is big. So how safe is the campus? How safe do students usually feel on campus?
UMD is a large campus, bigger than I was hoping for. With that being said, how is transportation, getting from class to class? Is there a shuttle system and is it reliable? I visited a school that had one, and it was not very reliable in my opinion.
College Park is 25 minutes from my house which is a con, seeing as though I really wanted to get away. However, I got a full scholarship here which is why I'm considering it so much. I'm between UMD and MIT, but MIT would be super expensive. I'm afraid to make a decision I'll regret, so I just need some clarity.
