Choosing an Honors College at UMD College Park
My son has to indicate his top 3 honors college choices by next week. He is having trouble finding much information on each other than what is on their web site. He was admitted into the engineering school and has a strong interest in math and science and is not interested in Gemstone since it is a 4 year commitment. He is also looking at this as a way to hopefully make the school smaller and interact with others with the same interests. I am assuming has cannot do honors and Virtus because they both have a living component so what would be the pros and cons if anyone knows of choosing one or the other. Does anyone know which honors college attracts the most engineering students?15 replies
