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 comforting community with many people willing to help students. Students are given the impression that they're voices will be heard and it has been proven true. Loyola prides itself on caring for self, caring for others, and caring for the community and students are to live up to those expectations.

    Amazing. Beautiful. Wonderful. I absolutely fell in love with their huge lakeside campus and their prestige is very high in Chicago, which is the second-biggest plus about Loyola. It's a great school for medicine and law especially.

    I love the Lake Shore Campus here at LUC. As long as I've been here all of the professors are great at what they do. The homework is challenging but its prepares you for the field of study you pursue

    Loyola has a beautiful campus, it's very clean, and directly on Lake Michigan. It has a strong academic program, so expect to work hard. They always have things going on on-campus and everything to do off-campus.

    If I were to describe Loyola Chicago in one simple word it would have to be: flexible. Everyone here, from staff to students, is understanding and cooperative. The environment is peaceful, which helps any student excel!

    I will give Loyola an eight out of ten. Loyola is an extraordinary university with professors that truly love what they do. The school sits on Lake Michigan with a wonderful scenery. It is extremely rigorous and filled with numerous of opportunities to get you involved in both school and in the Chicagoan community/neighborhoods.
