University of Chicago Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (12)
For Biomedical graduate work, U of C is a wonderful place to study. The faulty support is amazing. The breadth and creativity of research is hard to beat.
I absolutely loved my experience at UChicago. My favorite part was getting to live and learn with people who were like me - bookish, passionate, and curious. UChicago undergrads, grads, and professors are some of the smartest people I've ever met and I have learned so much from them. I will say one thing, though: it's not for everyone. The workload is intense and not always forgiving.
If you're already interested in the U of C, you're probably a good fit! Otherwise, why would you want to join a group of serious nerds who proudly proclaim their allegiance to the place "where fun comes to die?" I loved most of my classes, met people I could commune and compete with, and deeply enjoyed the life of the mind during my years at UChicago. So much so, indeed, that I went back for another degree.
This is a wonderful University though perhaps a bit pretentious. If you want an incredibly academic atmosphere and be in school with incredibly smart co-students, this is the place for you.
It may have changed in the near-decade since I graduated, but the University of Chicago is a wonderful school of self-selecting students. You can go there and be yourself, and you'll certainly find your group. This, on top of the world-class education you'll receive.
Incredibly intelligent students and professors. Very insular campus environment.
I hated my college. My social life was bleak, the advisers there are incompetent, the administration corrupt. It was so lonely there.
The College is top-notch for rigorous academics. Students interested in serious study of classic liberal arts will thrive. Students with mental health issues are not as well supported as at other universities though.
University of Chicago is a college with lots of opportunity to grow and learn more than you ever thought you could. The professors are phenomenal and the community is unique in its pursuit of academic inquiry and rigor. This school is really best for those who plan to attend a graduate or professional school after college.
Excellent campus, rigorous and rewarding coursework.
