"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."

"Attending the University of Chicago was the best decision I've ever made. I found it to be a profoundly stimulating and intellectual place, and loved the opportunity to be immersed in a liberal arts environment with others who truly loved learning. Chicago is also an amazing city; I know people jump on the idea that UChicago is in a "bad part of town", but as someone who's now lived in the area for over 8 years, I LOVE Hyde Park and found it to be a vibrant, safe place to live (honestly, it feels like a college town plopped inside of a major city). I've had excellent career/professional opportunities and wound up getting in to (and now attending) a great grad school program as a result of my UChicago experience."

Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2013
"My time at UChicago was incredible, I loved the school and the people. The core curriculum is a cornerstone of their philosophy and I think helpful in many ways. As I majored in Computer Science I wouldn't have had much opportunity to get such a well rounded education without it, but with it I studied many humanities subjects that have helped me tremendously. The Computer Science majors tends to a more theoretical focus rather than practical application. Working as a software engineer now I can say that while I wish there had been slightly more information on software engineering, the theoretical background has helped me pick up information and learn quickly in my job."
