    Crime and violence, including homicides, happen near campus almost every day. ...Continue reading

  • Overall school rating 4/5
    I question why I did this to myself: the work is insane & so is the quarter system... The incredibly intelligent and amazing friends I made while I was there tip the scale. Academic load was shockingly difficult. I had a social life, but it was always at the expense of my grades. IMHO BARELY worth it... I recommended the school to my younger brother. He now hates me. ...Continue reading

  • Overall school rating 4/5
    I think that the Safety being a 1 is due to the opinions posted prior to the massive reform around campus. The school is distinguished, which makes many professors and students act arrogant and unhelpful sometimes. The level of academics is stellar and you'll be challenged. The student body is bright but socially awkward and there is no fun to be had anywhere near campus. ...Continue reading

    Lucky to get to go to a school like this. ...Continue reading

  • Overall school rating 2/5
    Hyde Park is a demilitarized zone bereft of actual businesses or really anything to do. Perhaps the only place on Earth where they brag about no grade inflation, while students all get screened out because of low GPA. This place makes Ivys look like community college. Worst part is I say to people I go to University of Chicago, and they have no idea that this is an elite school. YMMV. ...Continue reading

  • Overall school rating 1/5
    This university has excellent reputation but extremely poor teaching quality. The quarter system is an exercise in masochism, given you choose it. Generally speaking the staff is not very accessible and the courses are okay to poor. The library is excellent, as are the campus pub and movie theater. It looks good on your CV, but that's it. ...Continue reading

  • Overall school rating 3/5
    Beautiful campus. Great teachers (generally). The professors and TAs are not committed to teaching graduate students, instructions are unclear, help is limited, reading selections are unreasonable. I would not choose to come here if I had another choice. ...Continue reading

  • Overall school rating 3/5
    Never have I experienced such a tortured love/hate relationship. The classes are brutal and the grading is akin to that of a state school. Everything is academics and it can be suffocating at times. It's a smaller school so I get more access to professors, but honestly seeing the stress we all go through I sometimes ponder whether it was worth it. But I also can't imagine myself anywhere else. If you can find your niche you'll be fine/ the professors are all great & the classes are generally inspiring. The humanities part of the core is great but I h8 that we have so much math & science bc I'm into books. ...Continue reading

    125 years of Inquiry and Impact Those who choose to attend, find that of the two, only the academic reputation is correct. Beautiful place and lots to do. ...Continue reading

  • Overall school rating 4/5
    You don't go to UofC to have fun, you go to get a rigorous education. With blue lights and guards on every corner, the campus is much safer. But fun happens to creep up on you. I've never had such engaging conversation as with my friends. And boy do they know how to have fun. You will always find someone who like what you like, and someone you can bond with. It makes the hard classes and long study hours worth it. ...Continue reading

  • Overall school rating 3/5
    I'm gonna graduate with a sick degree, but the works intense and the school seems smaller than it is if you wanna party like someone at a normal school and associate with people like that. It's remarkably difficult, for me at least. I have to work very hard just to stay afloat and from what I can tell thats fairly universal. We still have a lot of fun though contrary to popular belief. ...Continue reading

    First year in the college. I question whether it was worth it coming here fairly often. Lots of pros for sure, but the cons are pretty steep as well. ...Continue reading

  • Overall school rating 4/5
    UChicago is often thought of as a school where none of the students are happy, but this is honestly heavily exaggerated. Although there are times when it is overwhelming, you also have time to keep fun alive. All in all, UChicago's a great school, though be prepared. ...Continue reading

    I wanted to address the low location ratings. Sure, it's a tough school and it is frustrating at times, but not even once have I ever questioned my decision to come here. It's a great school and a great education. ...Continue reading

    Where Fun Comes To Die. UChicago is on the South Side of Chicago in Hyde Park. Hyde Park itself is very nice and fairly crime free. However, surrounding neighborhoods such as Washington Park are among the worst in Chicago so they just need to be avioded. However, I think raters forget that Chicago provides many opportunites. I heard it, I saw it on t-shirts, bumper stickers, and now I live it. It's Sunday at 6am and the library is full. I learned more than I ever thought possible, but I also have no time for friends or family. Only come here if you are very serious. Whoever leaves without at least being considered for a Nobel Prize loses. ...Continue reading
