A school's overall score by level is based on the school's by-program performance weighted by student enrollment in each program.

UB is a great school! As with any school they have their issues but overall they are a very underrated school. The school of Public Health and Health Professions has some of the most amazing faculty and staff that I have come across in eight years as a college student.
