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.

    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.

    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.

    I am very excited to be applying to The University of Chicago as a freshman for the Class of 2020. This prestigious university provides numerous opportunities for its students and I love its diversity in student body and in student life. I am definitely thrilled in looking forward to the day that the admissions decisions are mailed out.

    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!
