1. I have been studying at U Akron for 2.5 years. I was forced to take too many redundant courses although I have taken them in my undergraduate degree. The master of science in information systems management MSM is not practical and supportive to help me get the sufficient knowledge. The program consists of a few information systems-focused courses. This is because that the BC lacks the sufficient number of professors to tach this program. If you think of studying Master of Science in IS don't study here because you will waste your time. The BC changed the plans for the master programs, including MS in IS, and forced the current students to take some courses in the new plans. 2.Its a great university. Akron is a good city in itself. The university is well maintained and the people are very friendly and helpful. The university is spending over billions of dollars in renovation of the existing buildings and construction of new buildings. Safty wise i strongly recommend this university. security guards accompany you to your parking lots late at nights on request. So students can feel safe and never worry on that regard. A lot of construction work is going on at the moment and they say it would be completed before sept 2004. My cousin is also joining the same university this fall. So all of you out there, if you are ever thinking about joining UA, stop thinking just get in. You'll love the whole experiance just like i did. Good luck! cheers
