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's hard to meet people in the dorms and they're really small. Overall the school is amazing and so are the professors. Remember to study, they are strict on grading.

    Based on the other reviews, people say that the food is bad, but the rigor of the school is challenging. If I do go to this school, I may want to eat off campus. Just a pattern I've been noticing.
