    Wow, that is quite a mix! Have you gone to the library or asked the Guidance Counselor to let you review something like Fiske's Guide to get an overview of each school? That would be a good starting point. Have you visited all/some/none of these schools?

    I know that UTD has a sizeable commuter student population, which may or may not be what you are looking for.

    We may narrow it down to KY (will still consider the others, as we try to visit colleges)

    FL has gorgeous campus! (a little concerned with surrounding area in UCF)

    @ColdinMinny Thanks! Will choose 1 destination very soon! Yes, I agree with you about UTD and Commuters ;)

    In terms of the commuter aspect, here is the percentage of frosh living in the dorms (a proxy for non-commuters):

    79% Cincinnati
    66% Central Florida
    60% UT Dallas
    NA Kentucky

    Note also that Cincinnati is heavily co-op focused, though co-ops are often optionally available at other schools.
