Student & Graduate Reviews

Degree: History
Graduation Year: 2014

University of Chicago is where my stepfather received his degree in the same field 40 years ago. In all honesty, the school was much better then, from what he tells me. The wonderful thing is the diversity. It's beautiful how much diversity and inclusion they have there. Unfortunately, the school's educational standards have dropped significantly. The best professors are leaving, the classes are very unruly, and it is not at all what you would expect from a top-notch school.

University of Chicago is a good school, but is also very expensive. I would not recommend starting out at this school unless you are guaranteed to have some source of income after you graduate. I also noticed a certain tension among the professors, and some of the best professors left due to behind-the-scenes issues. University of Chicago has a top of the line reputation, but that reputation is not as well deserved as it once was. When deciding on which college or university to attend, please think very carefully about this school. Appearances can be very deceiving.

The University of Chicago is a challenging graduate school, and the faculty really push their students to produce quality work. The stress can be difficult to manage but the school provides more than adequate mental health resources to help students cope.

As the rating I have put here shows, I am satisfied with the program and I see more positives than negatives in the program.
