I checked out Cincinnati for my son. I have to tell you that I REALLY liked the school.We met some great professors that spent a lot of time with us.
My take is that they have an overall very good program and great facilities. Cincinnti is one of those schools that is very underrated by kids till they get there. Check out their gym and
work out facilities. It will blow you away..
They also have strong programs in their criminal advocacy and tax law. In fact, one of the most famous tax law blogs in the country is written by a Cincinnati professor.
Is it as well known as OSU in Ohio? Probably not. However, it really does have a great reputation in Ohio and throughout that region. It is also very , very reasonable. In fact,
you can easily get in-state tuition after the first year even if you weren't from Ohio!
My only concern with the school is the area surrounding Cincinnati, which isn't that good. However, if you live near the law school , you shouldn't have any problem.
