HCI program: University of Michigan vs. University of Maryland - Thoughts on both programs?

Hi everyone,

I have recently been accepted into two HCI programs at the iSchools at the University of Michigan and the University of Maryland.

I had intended to go to Michigan, since I had thought that Maryland's due date for acceptance was March 9. But it's actually April 6. So now I have a few short days to decide which to go to!

For background, I come from a Psych/English double major with no programming experience, and some self-learned graphic design skills.
