For this particular college, Graduate degree does not offer variety and diversity found in the big colleges, i.e. Ann Arbor. You may find yourself bored and frustrated with the lack of class choices. Certain instructors are excellent while others are not so good. Be sure to poke around and find out which one you want to take. If you are serious about your education, instructor choices can make you or break you.

For this particular college however you may get more experience doing things you would not be able to do at a large college. For example, it is (much) easier to get places at Dearborn than at i.e. Ann Arbor, given the same experience level. For example, if you want to become a president of an organization at Dearborn, you can. You will not face much opposition and more doors will be open for you. This also means that if you want to do project X for your graduate work, you are more likely to get it accepted, where in a larger college you may get "stuck" working on somebody else's project, because instructor selects it and not you.

So, I guess pick your field—smaller commuter college with a homegrown feel, or a larger college with more choices and options, yet more impersonal.
