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.

    I haven't personally been on campus, but since I was a little girl UChicago has been at the top of my college list and still is because of how beautiful it is and how focused this schools is on the humanities and social sciences.

    The University of Chicago has an inspiring atmosphere and felt very welcoming. I'd love to be a part of the intense academic environment. Students I met on my visit seemed very involved in their classes and there were a ton of student-led clubs.

    University of Chicago seems like a place full of wonderful and astonishingly bright students; however I must admit I'm rather intimidated by the reviews of more disgruntled students. The dorms and campus appear beautiful, and any future peers will surely be good influences. I'd be very interested in getting into this academically enriching school.

    this school is a little university hub in a big city. the campus aura is pretty mellow, but the buildings are beautiful. however, the university continues to expand, so it also has its own sense of unpredictability.

    The U of Chicago is a very beautiful campus in the midst of a vibrant neighborhood and city. Along with its diverse academic options, UChicago serves diverse people, too. While this school is very expensive, financial aid is very easy to get and its up to the prospective student if the bang is worth the buck.

    The campus itself is beautiful, just like the people who occupy it. For those who love to learn, it sends a signal that it can be your home; everyone I have met from UChicago seem to be relatable and decidedly NOT snooty. UChicago is a worthy dream school.

    I should first note that I have not been to UChicago, nor have I been to any other college, visit or otherwise. However, as I am currently a Junior in high school, I have done extensive research on colleges. I have place UChicago at the very top of my list; it's my dream school.

    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.
