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.

    University of Chicago seems like a truly unique learning experience. While I am currently not a student here, it has set the standards to be considered my dream school. I plan to apply this fall, because I want to be a part of this unique and intelligent group of students who truly value their education and have a love for learning as much as I do.

    Of all the colleges I've reviewed, this one is definitely in my top favorites list. I love the academic standards that the school has and its QS ranking when compared to other universities world-wide. Also, the laboratories and facilities with which they collaborate (Fermilab and Argonne National Laboratory) make the school perfectly suited to my scientific interests.

    Offers you lots of opportunities and experiences like treks and meeting people, but it's a very hard school in a lot of ways, least of all academically. Very based in theory although it's trying to change that and modernize to be more streamlined. Has complicated and problematic relationship with surrounding neighborhoods.

    This is a gorgeous and unique school. There's definitely a certain type of student they are looking for - smart, creative students who think outside of the box. By far the best school I've come across in my search, and I can't wait to go here!

    This school looks amazing in every aspect. Possibly more academically rigorous than some Ivy League schools. I hope to go here, its my dream college.

    I got info on financial aid from the University of Chicago in the mail, and I'm seriously impressed. It said that their financial aid is done entirely in grants, so no worries about debt from student loans. It would be nice if more schools would be like that.

    The University of Chicago is an institution focused on rigorous inquiry and the life of the mind; that is, the University encourages thoughtful exploration of game-changing theories, beliefs, etc. Academics are the University's number one strength, and success won't happen here without diligence, persistence, and self-motivation. The University caters to very specific individuals: those who believe knowledge has no lower or upper bounds and are willing to take the plunge into the delicate abstractions that contribute to our understanding of the world.
