Located about 45 minutes away from Cincinnati, Ohio is Miami University. Regarded as one of the original eight "Public Ivy schools", Miami University is a public university that has been rated as one of the top 20 schools for undergraduate teaching and is consistently rated as one of the top 100 public universities in the U.S. The city of Oxford, where the main campus is located, is a beautiful college town that offers plenty of amenities and community involvement opportunities within a short walking distance of campus. Top majors are business, nursing, pre-med, and psychology. Despite being a public university, all students that apply will be considered for a merit scholarship, even if they are applying from out of state.

Major: Policy Analysis & Management

Work Experience: Outside of mentoring students on CollegeVine, I’m interested in finance and it’s intersection with the fashion industry. I currently work in finance for an international consumer packaged goods company.

My Admissions Story: Throughout high school I was especially interested in math and science and focused my college applications on schools with good science and pre-med programs. When I got to college I took my first introductory chemistry class with an incredibly difficult professor (he is one of the AP Chemistry test writers every year). After that, I decided to switch gears and focus on public policy as another way that I could help people.
