Decision Help: UMBC vs NJIT vs FSU (all for MSCS)

Hello,
I am really confused about my final decision in MSCS for these 3 admits,
University of Maryland Baltimore County, New Jersey Institute of Tech & Florida State University.
I want to know which university is the best in terms of education quality and job prospects!
Any help will be appreciated. Thank you.

I'm not really aware of the strengths of the schools and what area of interest you are looking for in them but below is my comparison list from someone who stayed in the US.
1. FSU has good funding chances for your profile and Tallahassee is in Florida, implies it is expensive to live there. Amazing weather.
2. UMBC elicits a negative reaction because of Baltimore locality. Crime rate used to be very high and it is definitely above the median. The weather is between FSU and NJIT.
3. NJIT is the better of the 3 in terms of location when compared to crime and companies. It has a good Indian population but can be freezing in the winter.

I'm not answering wrt jobs and education quality but my hunch says pick NJIT.

Please don't PM me unless it is a personal question. Most answers can benefit others in the community by tagging in the forum.

Well, all three programs are very modestly ranked with no great distinction between them in terms of program quality. However, other factors such as employability may introduce a little bit of a difference.

In general, you will have fairly similar outcome with all of them with the caveat being NJIT (despite high tuition) has a very good record of good placement. We have had many Edulixians who had gone to NJIT and seem to be doing very well.

Cheers

EE
