    Payscale.com has UMD rated as the third best school in the nation for return on investment in relation to campus social life. I think that is pretty self explanatory.

    If you are in state this is certainly an affordable school. It is a well-known school with amazing professors. With all the helpful services provided, it is certainly worth it. You have Eppley's center to work out in, Counseling Center to have someone to talk to if you need it, and DOTS provides the buses to get your way around campus and to train stations nearby. Out of state, it can be costly, but it isn't anything that is above and beyond what it costs to attend any school out of state.

    I can't speak for out of state students, because I know it is significantly more costly if you aren't from Maryland, but if you are in-state, it's worth it. You're getting a good education, with access to immense resources for anything you want to do, from knowledgeable faculty. Before you even graduate you're part of a network that connects you with opportunities for careers and internships (I was contacted about a technical writing internship with the Department of State through the Careers4Terps site -- and I'm only a freshman -- because the boss was UMD alum.) And maybe most importantly, you don't need too much financial aid to graduate debt free. I have a few merit scholarships, nothing spectacular, and I'm not going to have to take out any loans -- which is huge when I think about the fact that one of my other choices was going to leave me trying to pay $80,000 in my first year out of college with an English major (which doesn't always pay as much as one might hope.)

    The location is super ideal; so many internship opportunities are in this area and I love the Urban feeling without being in the heart of DC.
