Most Helpful Review for University of Chicago

The classes are very educational and require a lot of focus. The best part is the university understands this, and so there are a lot of opportunities to get help from free tutors and TA's almost every day throughout the quarter.

    One of the most prestigious institutes of learning combined with the quirks and intrigues of the Windy City. Don't get me wrong; UChicago is by no means easy, but its environment fosters an experience you will not forget. From day 1, you are challenged and asked for your full potential.

    This school has the most personality of any college that I have encountered. It's a quirky mix of geniuses bearing the cold together. Jolly good.

    This university is a leader in producing important research, so it's an exciting place to go to school. It has a distinctive atmosphere, although that is diminishing as the University tries to imitate Ivy League institutions. Professors and other people who interact with students are invested in students' success, but the administration doesn't seem to care about undergraduates.

    The University of Chicago is a fast-paced, rigorous institution that only accepts the best of the best. The student body is predominantly Caucasian, with very few African-American students. However, the university has hundreds of activities, clubs, sports, etc. that are created to help students find their sense of belonging.

    Try as I might, I can't come up with a reason why I like this school. It's UChicago; people don't come here because they like it. They come here for where it will get them.

    In all honesty, I was first drawn to the school because of their witty college brochures. BUT, the school is amazing in its academics, campus, and really, everything. Also, Chicago is a great city to be in for college.

    Here at the University of Chicago, I am accepted and loved for who I am, no matter what I bring to the table. The professors, teaching assistants and classmates procure a likeable academic atmosphere and build off of each other's thought-provoking ideas. The University of Chicago is my home, and I wouldn't want to have I any other way.

    You will spend more time in one of the libraries (or your self-proclaimed designated studying space) than anywhere else. The sheer beauty of campus and the liveliness of Hyde Park will make you forget all of your worries, even if it is just for a moment. Going to school here will be the best decision of your life: if you can survive UChicago, you can conquer the world.
