    UR is small and not in a big city, which was what threw me back at first, but it's really a great college for undergrad. It has all you could ever ask for, and the students are great and friendly! There's tons to do on and off campus, and we are not all nerds by far! Just apply early for a possible Richmond Scholarship and focus on your essays. read full review

    Though UR is incredibly expensive on paper, the financial aid office offers outstanding awards and other options. After considering all scholarships, loans, and other forms of aid, this school was a more sound financial choice for me than a state school that was initially a quarter of Richmond's price. Also, the money that the school brings in goes to very good use, a Nobel Prize winner was hosted this past year, out living situation is amazing, and the food is DELICIOUS! read full review
