"Overall experience was hampered at the end. I would say the MBA program is not well designed for international students. Initially I was told I was eligible for CPT. After I got a job offer, I applied for my CPT, and then they informed me, by just a sorry, that the program does not support or is not designed for internship. It was a big blow and I found myself in a soup. I had a great experience at University of Cincinnati during the coursework, no complaints about the professors or the teaching. I just wish the director and academic advisors are better prepared to guide the international students. Everyone had a different version and I regretted my choice to waste 1.5 years on MBA at UC. INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS - BE VERY SPECIFIC AND ASK QUESTIONS TO ALL IN ADMINISTRATION, YOU ARE SURE TO GET DIFFERENT ANSWERS. CAN BE VERY FRUSTRATING!!!!!"

"As a student with both a learning and physical disability, UC has done nothing but make college a difficult experience. The accessibility office is unhelpful and discouraging. They leave information out that could be critical to a students success and refuse to give them the help they need to succeed. After having my grades slip due to missed classes for medical reasons, the accessibility office refused to help with the issue and we had to get an attorney involved. We are now almost 6 weeks into the spring semester and I still cannot get any straight answer on my Medical Excused Abscess accommodation. Previously, I struggled a lot in math and foreign language. I took me two year to find out I never needed to take those classes and they could be subbed out for other classes. Struggling through those classes dropped my GPA and I was unable to get into the major I wanted due to it. Lastly, I decided to graduate a year early and was told by Micheal Southern (the program director for accessibility services) that I would be unable to do so due to my learning disability. Here I am....about to graduate....a year early. The success of their students is CLEARLY NOT a priority to this university."

"The University of Cincinnati is an excellent university, especially for engineering. Education: The professors here really care and want each student to succeed. Very rarely have I encountered a truly bad professor. The courses great too, very applicable experiences you will encounter in the real world. Co-op is something that every student should consider no matter their major. University of Cincinnati offers co-op credit for both research and laboratory work as well as professional industry experience. Campus Life: The atmosphere on campus is second to none. Whether your interest is sports, board games, rockets, or rocks UC offers a community for you. The dorms (for the most part) are all fairly new and nice inside."

"The University of Cincinnati is a great college. I have made some of the best friends I can find at this school and the organizations I have joined have helped shaped me into the leader I am today. Cincinnati, with the help of the co-op program, is a great school to help you stay financially stable throughout your time here."

  • Degree: Neuropsychology
"Neuropsychology is a great path to take at the University of Cincinnati if you are interested in how psychology is directly impacted by the function of the brain. This major offers courses in Gen Eds such as biology, chemistry and basic math classes. Later on it delves deeper into neuroscience, research and many different types of psychology. Your first year will be mostly general education but into your second, third and fourth year, classes get more specified and definitely more on the track of neuropsychology. The professors are generally very good although there is only about 3 actual neuroscience classes you have to take. You also get to choose from over 25 psychology elective classes and so there are different classes for your different interests. Definitely a lot easier than it seems, and definitely would recommend!"

"I had the greatest experience in my undergrad at the University of Cincinnati. I enjoyed it so much, I was inspired to continue my higher education career with my master's degree. This school has an incredible support system of students, faculty, and staff. Everyone is truly a part of a strong and beautiful community all working together to be successful. If I could go back to choosing a college, I would choose University of Cincinnati every time."

"The University of Cincinnati has a great engineering program. With a required co-op program, students graduate with almost two years for worke experience. The co-ops are s great way to learn what type of job you want to do after graduation, or if you want to continue on to graduate school."

  • Degree: Nursing
"The university of Cincinnati is growing immensely and is becoming a major competitor to previously renown universities such at THE Ohio State University. UC gives students a great social atmosphere as well as an amazing education with highly accredited programs such as their Linder Business College and DAAP. Nursing (my major) is also, like everything at UC, is very much on the rise. However, with such a rapid rise they are struggling with organization and professors are overwhelmed. That being said though, the social experience and the knowledgeable professors, as well as the recognition that a degree from UC will get you makes the experience well worth it!"

  • Degree: Biology
"The University of Cincinnati is an amazing school. In many ways they have prepared me for my field, as well as prepared me for my future endeavors. The curriculum is heavily focused on current research, as well as techniques used in research in order to give students the best idea of what the current techniques are, as well as how to use them. The financial aid services at One stop are great, they will always help you if you have a problem. Overall my degree will heavily influence my earning potential because for the majority of all lab work you need at least a B.S. degree. I would highly recommend this school as everybody is very friendly, and it feels like a large community. A community where we can compete to do our best, as well as encourage others to do their best."

"The campus is active and welcoming. My program was small enough to create active discussion in class and frequent interaction with the instructors, but also large enough to include a diverse group of students. The degree program is a leader in the counseling field, particularly working from an ecological model and serving the underserved. All of the faculty and students truly value diversity, openness, and humble learners. I would recommend to anyone interested in becoming a mental health or school counselor."

"The Key is keep a 3.2 GPA no matter what is your major, every opportunity rotates around this GPA value from paid Co-Op to internship. UC has so much potential and development going on that by the time you ll get there you will find yourself in a TOP school In U.S.A"

"I like that UC has roots in the Ohio and Kentucky area because that is where my family is from and where I plan to have my career. However, from my personal experience, the school wasn't that welcoming or helpful for students that commute or, lately, first generation college students. This shows with the fact that black students make up only 8% of the campus and other non international minorities even less."
