My review

The Good:

UMUC offers great programs and has great professors - for the most part. Over 36 hours of graduate work, I only had 2 bad profs. One just didn't seem to care, and the other was just new and inexperienced in the world of online classes.

The Bad:

The cost and its silly name.

Would I do it again?

Yes, UMUC allowed me to get a Masters of Science in Accounting and Finance. Only a handful of other schools in the country offer a similar program. Now I have enough accounting hours to take the CPA exam, but didn't have to take more than necessary.
