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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Chicago is a fantastic institution. The atmosphere is very intellectual, and many students partake in interesting discourse with their peers, as well as faculty members. I have had the pleasure of interacting with outstanding faculty who have provided me with mentorship and guidance in my academic career. I absolutely love the place.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

There is something about the feel of stepping onto a college campus for the first time, whether it be for the very first time or for the first time at said college. A person can feel the city's traits all around them through the campus. It may be a fast paced, urban area or a slow paced, rural area, and that depends on the location of the college. The University of Chicago is located in a great city that has many opportunities for students. It is a very diverse and accepting community that is ready for anything. There is a sense of camaraderie from the moment that the new students walk through the gargoyles as freshmen to the time they walk across the stage as graduates. There are many different majors and minors for study, clubs, and on-campus activities for students to participate. These can range from doing a lab research with a favorite professor to playing bingo for groceries in the dorm hall to watching the football team, and cheering on the Maroons. All of these traits put together make a perfect home for the next stage of a young adult's life. The University of Chicago makes an opportunity rich environment that is ripe for the taking.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Chicago seems to be very active on and off campus. The campus is beautiful and the people are very welcoming and nice. The school gives off a strong academic vibe in which says a lot about the campus in general. I would love to attend that school one of these days.
