    My admissions counselor stephani was very helpful. She was so informative and welcoming. Love that Carlow is a catholic university but it's not forced on you. The church and nuns are there if you need them but are not required. So far, Carlow us an excellent choice for me. I'm very excited for my major and being able to take classes and practicals in the local Pittsburgh hospitals.

    Carlow definitely was the best financially for me. They help out a lot with generous scholarships and grants for people who need it.
