    Make sure this is the right school for you -- they don't seem to have an engineering college, or maybe not a well-established one! However, great for law and business.

    i live in chicago, so i'm giving you the impressions that uchicago has on native chicagoans. i strongly recommend, as you have heard 3 trillion times, visit the campus. the campus honestly has its own persona of being pretty bland. the buildings seem to bring things to life, not the students. however, the financial aid is amazing and the academics are too. so, while this may not be a school with an amazing social scene, make sure you like the academics because, after all, you have the city of chicago at your toes.
