    It is super expensive, which you should well know. The education can be worth it if you take the time to make the most out of it.

    The University's tuition rivals that of more well-known intellectual institutions (i.e. Harvard, Princeton, Yale, Stanford, etc.) While the University will teach you a lot, it probably won't lead to the sort of connections you would establish at a better known private institution.

    For whatever interest you have, UChicago has something to offer that complements it. No desire to learn has gone unattended here, everything is thought about, and if you are so innovative to not have your idea available, you can request to make your own class or RSO that addresses the issue. So, your future is easily cultivated on our campus if you get involved, and the classes are second to none. You know you're getting an Ivy League quality education here.

    The price is certainly high. It's not easy being a college student and having to pay $65000. But the experience is likely worth it. So many UChicago grads go on to become successful persons around the world and make up their debt from college and more. Take, for example, recent phenomenon Nate Silver. Or maybe president Barack Obama who taught at the law school here. Yes, these kinds of people are unique and you certainly are not expected to be the next president of the U.S., but your money goes in for good reason.
