“University of Chicago Review”
April 2019CURRENT STUDENT
Uppers

The University of Chicago has a strong economics program and a culture of rigorous academic inquiry.

Downers

The rigor of the University of Chicago's academics can lead to an unhealthy work life balance.

Comments

Many employers are looking to hire students from the University of Chicago, making it a good choice for students interested in business.

Would You Recommend

Yes

“Great”
May 2018FORMER STUDENT
Uppers

Great classes, full of information. Looks impressive on a curriculum

Downers

Has become too much like Ivy League schools. Also kinda of unsafe.

Comments

It is worth it. Wonderful school. You will learn a lot.

Would You Recommend

“A wonderful undergraduate experience”
August 2015FORMER STUDENT
Uppers

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.)

Downers

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.

Comments

This school isn't for students who want easy grades.

Would You Recommend

Yes

“Neurotic but Great”
July 2015FORMER STUDENT
Uppers

Extremely smart people

Challenging curriculum with choice of depth and breadth

Supportive career office

Downers

Sometimes confused with "University of Illinois at Chicago"

Neurotic student body

Strong emphasis on academics over internships

Harsh winters

Comments

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.
