What is your overall opinion of this school?

I believe the University of Chicago is a wonderful institution. I have found the reputation of rigorous academics to be right on par but I can say that the university does a great job of supporting students through it. Each student is assigned an academic adviser, career adviser, and a major adviser all of which are available and knowledgeable. The housing system also creates a welcoming environment through assigning each student to a house (yes, like in Harry Potter) comprised of students from all majors and grade levels. This gives students, first years especially, to interact with people of all interests and form a strong house bond built on years of tradition. Overall, I've found that the university does a great job of fostering a supportive community and the students buy into it which has made my experience a positive one.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Very good academics. Tough as hell. If you want an easier time, go to Harvard (they have nice grade inflation). Never a shortage of extracurricular and academic opportunities. Small classes except for maybe gen chem and first year social science. Everyone here is a nerd, but not 100% nerd. If you're looking to party every night, stay away. If you're looking to party every weekend, come thru it's lit.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I absolutely love my college. It is my home away from home, and I always feel like I am surrounded by a community that is lively, intellectual and fun. I cannot wait to continue spending time with all of the great friends that I have made in this very short amount of time because I know that not only will they provide me endless opportunities for diversion, but they will also push me to do my absolute best in everything I pursue.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

I wish I knew how depressing the student body was. I wish I knew how few people were interested in sporting events. I wish I knew how hard it was to meet normal people. I wish I knew how impractical a lot of the classes were. I wish I knew how much I would dislike the CORE curriculum. I wish I knew how few people have school pride on campus. I wish I knew practically the entire student body is depressed.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

People who are looking for a social life should not attend this school. People looking to have fun in college should not attend this school. People looking for lively on campus housing should not attend this school. People looking for a safe college neighborhood should not attend this school. People looking for high GPA's should not attend this school. People who are looking for a college focused on undergraduate learning should not attend this school, it is much more focused on graduate students.

Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

The Unveristy of Chicago is unique because it places emphasis on learning for the sake of learning and asks students to question peers and professors before taking information as fact. Even though it has a relatively large campus, the way in which housing is organized creates a familial atmopshere and dilutes competitiveness between students.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The most frustrating thing about the University of Chicago is the lack of non-work-study job opportunities available to undergraduate students. Most jobs only pay students that are qualified for work-study, while others are required to work just as much but are only considered as "volunteers." Despite the fact that some students have a family income above the set amount to be considered work-study, the majority job opportunities on campus neglect to provide some monetary income regardless of whether or not the student is receiving financial aid.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

To quote the writter, revolutionary Ram Dass, "Be Here Now". Which still today I havn't fully embodied this way of life, but I know its power. I don't regret my senor year in high, though I am a drop out. I was proposed a situation to summit or rebel, I rebeled. I was acussed of hacking into my high schools web site and posting pornografy to the home page, which I never did I'd like to add. At the time life seemed full of possibilities. I had life by the short and curly. I was working full time living on my own. Getting good grades, even taking Italian courses at the local community collage. I hastily made a grand scene in the principles office with curse words flying as well as books. I felt there was nothing I could say or do to change my path in life. So I left, dropped out as they call it. Since that day I have had to work twice or three times as hard to make my way. So I say to Abaris at any age, especially the one that recklasly abandanded his future at 17, be here now!
