University of Pittsburgh Reviews
tldr: Pitt is an amazing school!
There are also many opportunities and events that promote and help students with start-up business ideas such as the annual Randall Family Big Idea competition. Students have access to career fairs, resume reviews, and help in finding co-ops and internships on a regular basis as well.
The campus is quite large, and beautiful. I would definitely recommend going here for pretty much any major, especially physical sciences, engineering, and psychology students.
