5.0 of 5 stars
The University of Chicago has small class sizes that are taught by actual, engaged professors who show a genuine interest in teaching undergraduates. If you are interested in grad school, this is the place to be. People are exceedingly smart, for the most part friendly, and Hyde Park is now a wonderful place. (Don't listen to those who attended the school more than 5 years ago--the neighborhood has totally changed.)
The career services for undergraduates who aren't in a few select fields (e.g. economics) are not very good. They have an especially hard time helping students translate humanities degrees into employment skills.
This school isn't for students who want easy grades.

Extremely smart peopleChallenging curriculum with choice of depth and breadthSupportive career office
Sometimes confused with "University of Illinois at Chicago"Neurotic student bodyStrong emphasis on academics over internshipsHarsh winters
The school represents a place where students can study with depth their passions and interests without immediate concerns about the applications of these studies. That turns a lot of people off, but it appeals to many others. Recently, the school has diversified its student body and improved the quality of its student life and career office.
