Why Maryland: 
University Of Maryland, College Park has proved to be a promising school for me. But in retrospect, I chose this university as it allowed me to be flexible with courses. I love the fact that my professors were full time employees working with best firms within the United States. Having said that, it just enriched the quality of class discussions, as you get to know the real experiences and how things work in the corporate world. The majority of the courses deal with semester long projects which just gives you an adequate insight to learn things better. You learn things more with a practical perspective.
