Most Helpful Review for Loyola University Chicago

The science and required pre-med courses here are very rigorous. Expect a heavy workload for chemistry and biology classes, hours of studying a night. However being persistent makes the workload definitely doable and you will do better for the MCAT. Other majors beyond the sciences do not require as much work and those students have more social lives.

    Loyola has a beautiful campus in a great city, but the campus doesn't feel like a city campus. There are so many things to do in Chicago, but Loyola will keep you busy. Great school.

    It is a school mainly tailored to very strict students. The teachers are hard and the system is not always fair. Regardless, graduating from here will look great for grad school or careers.

    I have been to the Lakeshore Campus several times, and the view is always breathtaking. I really like how passionate the school is about helping the environment. The Quad is a green space where student groups gather, and it is there where I can feel a great sense of community coming from several group all at once.
