What are the advantages of attending UK over UofL? I've been accepted into both and am really torn. I would really like to live in a larger, urban, more open-minded city. Louisville of course is larger and seems to have more opportunities, but UK itself is quite a bit more prominent than UofL. I'm gay, so tolerance is a big issue also. How are the psychology programs at UK? I haven't seemed to be able to find too much info on them. I was considering UofL, but from what I have found, UK seems to have a better psychology program. And UK's campus is sooo much more beautiful! Does Lexington have anything like Louisville's Highlands or Bardstown Road? I would really miss that if I came to UK. I'd love to be in a larger city, but Lexington seems quite liberal and tolerant for a city its size! I really like what I've seen so far. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

If you want to meet a lot of new people and have a "college experience" go to UK. If you just want to get your degree and not much else, go to UL. UK and Lexington are very open minded and while there isn't really anything like Bardstown Rd, downtown is very cool for being so small. I'd say the nightlife is much better in Lexington for the college aged.

Yeah, I think I would rather have more of a real "college experience". I've scheduled a campus tour. Hopefully I'll like it!
