UMBC or UMD-CP biology degree?

Hi, I am pretty deep into the college selection process, now down to my final schools (UMBC and UMD). I love them both and was wondering if anybody who either attends one of the two schools or is simply very knowledgeable about them could tell me about the student life, any similarities or differences they may know of, etc. Also, I am planning on studying biology (on the pre-med track), since I want to attend med school in the future, and wanted to know which school would be better for my major. Thanks!

All I heard about Baltimore is that it's very high on crime

Hi there! I'm not that knowledgeable about these specific schools here, but maybe this thread can help you: https://www.quora.com/Which-is-better-University-of-Maryland-College-Park-or-University-of-Maryland-Baltimore-County-UMBC

You could also see if you can get in touch with current students through your school counselor (who may know students at both schools) or through the admissions offices of each school. Hope this helps!
