My parents live in Carroll County so I really couldn't commute easily to either UMB campus. So rent is a major financial consideration for me. My parents recommended UMB @ shady grove because they had heard it was a much easier acceptance. Do you know if this is true? Which UMB campus are you applying to?
I agree UMB may be a good back up option and I don't mean to bash the program because I know its a good one. However, I feel like I will be paying more, have less sense of campus community (both commuter schools
), another transcript, and living in a more dangerous area.
And yes, I LOVE Towson University. Its affordable, the nursing program is very competitive and well respected, the nursing grads get hired upon graduation, great location, great community, great teachers...I could go on and on.
