Most Helpful Review for University of Illinois at Chicago

The teachers are great. All professors are required to have a few office hours open for students to ask for help. If you don't have to see you professor, you can always ask your T.A. They have to have office hours too. I find the T.A. helpful because they are students too and usually give you ideas on how to student certain materials. Also, UIC has a lot of private learning resources and sessions on how to study better.

  • Apr-24-2014 I am researching this school and have not visited the campus

    I have applied to this school and got accepted. However, I have a friend who previously attended as a finance major (which is what I want to go into) and could not find a job after graduation. So obviously I am a little skeptical of the academic reputation of this school and if it is a good investment in the long run.

    I just transferred to UIC and my favorite thing so far is that the classes I am enrolled in have lecture-capture. Lecture-capture records the lecture and allows you to go back and listen to the lecture again in case you were confused about a certain topic.

    It is a pretty big campus and like all other campuses, they all have problems. UIC's internet access its a bit sketchy and they seemed to have a lot of pipe problems too this year. Over all it it a great school and you get a good bang for your buck which draws the students in so its a great education for the fraction of the price.

    UIC is a great school intended to push yourself to your maximum based on their curriculums. It's a great way to meet new people, volunteer, and learn about what you want to do in the future. I've got a long ways to go, but UIC is keeping me on the right track to a knowledge-filled future.

    UIC is a place for everyone from an international student to a rural town boy who has never been to the city in his life before. Once one enters the campus, s/he automatically falls in love with the diversity and the happiness shining through the eyes of all the students. It offers various majors and research options with the remarkable faculty for students of all backgrounds.

    It's great in terms of diversity and opportunity. The quality of education in my opinion is standard, not excellent but not terrible either. This institution is best suited for students interested in pursuing the hard core sciences.

    Located in downtown Chicago, the University of Illinois at Chicago is one of the most diverse universities you could attend. UIC has a unique, top-of-line $335 million dollar research initiative- making it very easy to become involved with something impactful with virtually any subject during your time at UIC. If you are an in-state resident, the price that you pay for both undergraduate and graduate studies is a bargain compared to the incredible faculty and student life you receive in return.
