    I'm paying out of state so I feel like for what I'm paying the food should be a bit better. With that said, health care is free. I have made plenty of visits to the clinic due to a health issue and they have been nothing but kind to me, and nothing came out of pocket. That cannot be said for many other institutions.

    I am out of state from Missouri but the use of scholarships can help. Since the academic programs are really great I think that is worth the expense because jobs in the real world look at where you went to school; with health programs it is a big deal to come from the University of Kentucky.

    Use what you are paying for. Eat your meals on your dining plan, and go to a lot of events (free stuff). If you are lucky, John Calipari will pay for a semester of your schooling. Be smart. Budget your money, but focus on classes. They cost money so go to class, and do your best.

    I think it's really expensive. I'm pretty sure it's the most expensive public school in the state, but it's also the best quality as far as professors and the education you receive.

    Dont waste your money. This school is extremely cheap and will get you on everything. For instance, Im really sick of having to pay to use the library (in parking fees), and getting tickets everywhere I go. I refuse to buy the parking passes because they range from 150-300 a year. I dont understand why parking passes arent included in my 30000+ tuition like most schools. Not to mention the fact that UK is doing an amazing job of tearing down every parking lot in existence for their new dorms. And guess where they are getting money for that (because this school is in serious debt)? From our rising tuition prices!
