I really like how UC feels like a small and big campus at the same time. There are approximately 45,000 students here, but I can walk anywhere within 10-15 minutes. The clubs and organizations also make it easy to connect with peers. The architecture of the buildings are neat, and the co-op program is very highly regarded.

Financial aid is TERRIBLE!!!! If you can't afford to pay 30K a year, then do not go to this school. My financial aid has not been subtracted from my bill and it is making me so anxious.

University of Cincinnati has great engineering and health science programs (was in both). Both are very difficult and make you work to succeed. There are plenty of resources at UC to get help with classes, find jobs/internships/co-ops, get connected and more! This is my fourth year at UC, and I plan to go to graduate school here also for physical therapy.
