UMD is definitely a great school, however their professors need training in proper advising. I had a tremendous amount of trouble with academic advising, and I heard the same from about 40% of the students. Otherwise, the University is great. In response to the increased number of applicants, they are buidling new and improved dorms. UMD also has a great support network, including counseling, student development, career center,and reasearch librarians.Also, there are many individual centers, such as the GLBT Center, the Women's Resource Center, a nice gym, fitness room and pool. The professors range from excellant and absolutely outstanding, to "I can't believe this person is a college professor, because I haven't learned anything in this class". About 25% of the professors are outstanding, 40% are average, and 35% are less than average. THe university is growing rapidly, and I think within a few years it will catch up with itself and provide an excellant well-rounded education.
