Francis - 02/03/2021

I have had a lot of buyer's remorse on this one. Most of it was politics and, in hindsight, the teachers were wrong about a lot. One political favorite here went on to jail after graduating, that tells the whole story. It's a culture of corruption, substance abuse and -- well, non-Catholic activities (wonder why their church is dwindling away? This would be one of many reasons). Two of my grades were fixed blatantly. In Loyola's defense, the teachers were fired. But it looked very bad for the school because I would go on to excel in the areas they were teaching. For the record, after a number of requests to correct the grades the school never did anything about them. Since graduating, I have had to call on Loyola a few times. It seems they do not miss any opportunity to betray me. I never did anything to deserve that and am probably one of its most accomplished graduates. Yet, they have never been even remotely fair with me. I know others who feel the same way. I would advise to look at other schools.

So impressed when I visited. Everyone was so welcoming!

Nona

I love Loyola, it's not for everyone one and can be an acquired taste but I wouldn't leave it for a second I love my school

Nicole

Loyola was my number-one college of choice, and I'm really glad that I ended up going here. I have a well-rounded life including interesting classes, great friends, and numerous service opportunities. However, Loyola is not a diverse campus; although there some efforts being made for the school to be more inclusive, the majority of students are from an upper-middle class upbringing. If you do not fit this demographic, it can sometimes feel uncomfortable fitting in. I would still recommend Loyola to anyone looking for a good education, and the chance to serve in the city of Baltimore.

Loyola University Maryland FAQS

    The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Loyola University Maryland is 65%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.

  2. What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

    I would have been sure to tell myself that moving on to college is simply a transition in to the next phase of life. Coming into college, I was so worried about losing all of the aspects of my old life (friends, traditions, family) that I was not able to be myself at the start of college. I was more worried about talking to my old friends in high school than I was about making new friends all together. Because of my close-mindedness coming into Loyola, the transition was much harder on me than it should have been. I had trouble making friends and keeping up with my schoolwork. It took me about two months to relax and realize that college is simply opening new doors for me, not closing old ones. By Christmas break, I was having a great time at school and could hardly wait to get back for the second semester. I wish I had come in to school with that mindset instead of resisting change so stubbornly.

  7. What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

    Coming into Loyola University Maryland as a transfer student was a familiar process. I had already transfered from Harford Community College to University of Maryland (which I found did not suit my needs), so I was familiar with the bureaucracy and whatnot. What I truly wished I had known was how hard college can be for transfer students -- and I wished I had known this back in High School. Starting out at a community college is great financially, but it takes away from academic pursuits and the overall general feeling of college.

  10. What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

    The most frustrating thing about the school is probably the same as every other college, the start of the year. Trying to manage moving in with hundreds of other students trying to do the same is the nightmare its made out to be. Then organizing the syllabi and ordering books and getting everything else ready for the school year is probably the most stressful thing to do. There isn't too much time to get it done between moving in and the date that classes begin, so its easy to become stressed.
