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.

    The campus was nice and so were the freshman dorms. For the most part, everyone was friendly, though I did experience one rude person. Overall, the location is great with a variety of restaurants and stores.

    Loyola is not just a school, it's a place that changes you for the better, it helps you understand the world on another level, and it makes you ask questions like why is this happening in this part of the world? What can I do about it? It helps you find your inner voice for social justice and change.

    Loyola has an absolutely beautiful campus and is a lot of fun. They do a lot to support the students, and generally class sizes are small.

    Beautiful campus that doesn't seem like you are in a big city. Great people and professors with small classes. Very preppy so don't show up in sweatpants.

    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.
