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.

    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.

    I attended the UChicago summer session as a rising high school senior and fell in love with the school. Along with the academic being top tier, you will also meet the most interesting and wonderfully strange people there and grow incredibly close to them. You will find a nurturing learning environment complete with a support group of friends and faculty in one of the greatest cities on in U.S.

    I have visited many beautiful campuses, including several Ivies, but UChicago surpassed any expectations I could possibly have. I couldn'Â?t imagine attending any other university. UChicago is simply stunning.
