Most Helpful Review for University of Illinois at Chicago

The teachers are great. All professors are required to have a few office hours open for students to ask for help. If you don't have to see you professor, you can always ask your T.A. They have to have office hours too. I find the T.A. helpful because they are students too and usually give you ideas on how to student certain materials. Also, UIC has a lot of private learning resources and sessions on how to study better.

    It is a great university for social work students because of the diversity encountered not only on campus, but in field placement. The professors are very diverse in their experience with social work and their backgrounds. It is great for people interested in mental health.

    University of Illinois at Chicago is very different from other schools because it is a school located in the city, which I love. The faculties and staffs are very friendly, so it is hard to not making any friends. The schools provides all kinds of sources to help the students succeed.

    I attended UIC for the city life and I got it. I learned so much that I would have never learned about going to a school in the middle of nowhere.

    I have applied to this school and got accepted. However, I have a friend who previously attended as a finance major (which is what I want to go into) and could not find a job after graduation. So obviously I am a little skeptical of the academic reputation of this school and if it is a good investment in the long run.

    I just transferred to UIC and my favorite thing so far is that the classes I am enrolled in have lecture-capture. Lecture-capture records the lecture and allows you to go back and listen to the lecture again in case you were confused about a certain topic.
