Why Maryland: 
Maryland is a very big campus and I was very thrilled and excited when I received my acceptance letter back in 2009. It's a great school and the engineering program is competitive. I worked very hard to graduate with excellent results and also get on the Dean's list in my last two semesters. I choose Maryland because of its innovative and development ideas for student's success. The staff and faculty are always readily available to assist students in their course work. I am very glad I did my undergrad here and even more glad I will be getting my master's degree from here too. Go Terps!!!
