What is your overall opinion of this school?

Painful and miserable time here. I've learned a lot but also feel like many, many of my peers have wanted to transfer at some point during their college careers, and I as well have seriously thought about it. Plenty of regrets but alas thankfully I will be graduating soon. Classes - especially in the physical sciences - are difficult not because of content but because of poor pedagogy. I took Power for my SOSC core and got next to nothing from two thirds of it - all I can say now is that i've read Hobbes, Rousseau, Foucault, Marx, Freud, and Kant and developed a surface-level understanding of them in the little time that we spent with each, just enough to produce meaningless essays with "rigorous" arguments for each. There is just too, too much unnecessary work for us to also maintain a thriving and meaningful social life. It's windy and cold. Tried to embrace life and have fun my first year but my grades bore the consequences of that. This is truly where fun comes to die. I would never, never send my children here to endure this misery again.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My 3+ years of experience at the University of Chicago were filled with positives. It provides a intellectually stimulating , encouraging and rigorous yet cooperative academic environment. The school campus is incredibly safe, despite its location. Furthermore, with a phenomenal faculty to student ratio (and graduate student to undergraduate student ratio), the amount of faculty attention and opportunities for research the undergraduates can seek out is exceptional. Students will leave with a sense of real achievement and bright job or graduate studies prospects.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UChicago is a truly academic environment; if you want to learn, you'll be right at home. Research opportunities are abundant, and professors are always eager to talk to students. Classes are generally work-heavy, but if you can ride the curve, you'll be safe. The worst part about this school is the administration: The opaque bureaucracy seems to almost intentionally keeps students out of the loop.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have really enjoyed my time at the university so far! The campus itself has a nice blend of older and modern architecture, and it has many great facilities on campus to support academic pursuits and hobbies. All of the dorms have quiet study rooms for any student who needs it for activities like music practice, which each quiet room having a piano in them. The food is not the best, but the dining halls do tend to have a lot of options that caters to a lot of different diets, although I have heard on more then one occasion of issues revolving around vegan/vegetarian options not being vegan, especially with soups. The University is a good distance from the city, but with Ventra passes students can get to a lot of places off campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am glad I went. It was a difficult and rewarding experience. As with all schools, the more seriously you take your grades, the more difficult it is. The way the dorms were set up made me feel very safe. The RAs were my friends and I felt I could go to the RHs in an emergency. The school is not drug or alcohol friendly because of the intensity of the academics not because of school policy. Students are, for the most part, left to make their own mistakes.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I thought I was coming to live in Chicago. Instead, I am ashamed every day to live in a walled fortress where our private police force harasses any black person who walks across campus. I spent the last week begging potential employers to let me take a job even though I have strange qualifications from being on the quarter system and don't graduate until mid-June and being denied basic healthcare with my university insurance. The academics here are good, and they occasionally give good financial aid, so it is a good option if you are willing to hole up in a lab for 4 years, frantically defend your scholarship and go straight to PhD, but if you want any other things from your college experience, or can't afford to have your scholarship pulled out from under you I would not apply.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Chicago was a challenging school to attend that made me work hard and adapt my thinking and studying skills as a student. There was little in terms of real life training that led to difficulty once graduating. It was a great experience and I enjoyed my time there but I would have done things differently in terms of my studies if I could do it again.
