First of all, I would like to state the professors are very intelligent and most are very willing to help with any questions that you have.

The major problem with the Biology major at this current moment though, is the fact that UMBC is lacking in professors and labs, which means they have been playing around with the requirements for graduation. If you want to graduate from this school in 4 years with a BS in Bio then head to another school. Labs are no longer being allowed to be taken concurrently with the lecture and there is no guarantee that they will offer your required labs when needed. This means hard to understand concepts in lecture are not reenforced in lab.

Over all, I am just not impressed with this school because it feels like they make you bend over backwards to be able to graduate from this school.

PROS: good professors
CONS: poor scheduling, too many general required classes

I spent all four years of my undergraduate career at the University of Maryland Baltimore County campus. The professors there are highly qualified, the classes are very small once you get passed some basic 100 level courses, and the campus is very quiet. While studying, I lived on campus, and I was very happy with the arrangements. Parties can be found on the weekend, but they are not so abundant that they are a problem. The campus is also very safe, and they are constantly adding to it. The biggest problem with attending school here is the price. A college education anywhere is not cheap, but UMBC seems to be on the high side. Overall, I would recommend attending school here.

I attended UMBC as an undergraduate and as a graduate student in the sociology department. I found the education to be of excellent quality. Many of the professors are very helpful and willing to work closely with students. The campus is not large, but is currently undergoing rapid growth, with the addition of several new state of the art facilities. Tuition costs have increased since the time I started at UMBC, but this is true for colleges across the board, and UMBC is still priced very competitively. Come here for a personalized, solid education.

I went to UMBC for my undergraduate education, and would highly recommend it. The education system is better than at College Park. UMBC is especially good for students interested in studying the sciences (chemistry, biology, etc). It is a good route for applying to medical school. It has a relatively small campus, and the professors are top notch. The president is a very charismatic person that has only done good things for the university.

UMBC is a state university, along with being a honors college. They have some of the best professors in the country, many of whom have written either textbooks or non-fiction books which are highly-recognized and used by other colleges. The school is best known for their computer science program and their pre-med preparation. Many jobrecruiters come to UMBC looking for students because they know that students here are receiving one of the best college educations possible. Classes are small and therefore students receive more one-on-one attention. In addtion, the school hosts a number of events from lectures, discussions, concerts, culture related programs, etc. They provide a great education for an affortable price.
