I've been accepted for the CS Ph.D program at UMD. However, I really wanted to get to a top-5 program with a good reputation. Now I keep wondering what on earth I'm going to do with a Ph.D from Maryland. I mean, having the Ph.D (UMD) tag at the end of your name is nothing like having a name like MIT or Stanford at the end. My plan was to get an MS and then go to a top school but I didn't get accepted to any of the MS programs. So what options are available for me if I get a Ph.D from Maryland?
