UDC is a greatComputer Science
UDC is a great school for the money. Even for foreign students. Many inner city students do not take advantage of this school. It gave me a decent education for a very reasonable price. I graduated almost 17 years ago, went for a graduate study, and now I am happy with the career I have.

UDC isn't a bad school but majority ofBrightOther
UDC isn't a bad school but majority of the students who attend the university are older and are using this as a stepping stone. Majority of students plan to transfer out (such as myself)so if you're coming here as an out of state applicant you may want to look elsewhere its not alot of students living on campus so you'll more than likely feel isolated. There's a lot to do in the city however but a lot of the friends you make will be commuter students so if you have other options just go somewhere else. Also the admissions process is very tedious because they're slow and tend to misplace things so please be ontop of your stuff if you decide to go here, even if its for a semester . (Like me)

I transferred in, and if i would've knownSuper BrilliantPolitical Science
I transferred in, and if i would've known just how beaucratic and racist the staff and faculty were I would have NEVER went. It is a government institution who DO NOT care about students. only the money they bring in. Freshman can take senior courses, adjuncts run the show--where are the PROFESSORS when we need them! The cost, DOES NOT COMPARE TO THE HEADACHES SUFFERED! AMU is a MUCH Better program--that's where I'll attend Law School. I advice students who are looking DO NOT GO HERE---ONE PROFESSOR DOESN'T MAKE UP THE MESS THAT'S ALREADY INBEDDED IN THE UNIVESITY--YOU MAY SPEND A LITTLE MORE AT ANOTHER UNIVERSITY, BUT IT WILL BE WORTH IN THE LONG RUN----UMUC--IS BETTER PRICED THAN UDC--THANK YOU FOR ATTENTION
