Student & Graduate Reviews

1.75 out of 5.0
Degree: Cognitive Psychology
Graduation Year: 2015

The academic level was less than what I was expecting, and was under the academic level I am used to. Teachers were often absent. My advisor is only in her office during my class hours. The administration seems to try to make all procedures as unclear as possible, for students and for faculty. The campus is very unsafe. The technical support team is not very good at solving issues with the technology they put in place on campus. The food and housing on campus is extremely expensive. The amount of homework is insanely large.

Chicago is great and has a lot to offer, I also enjoyed University's environment very much; it is quiet peaceful and not crowded. The gym facilities especially fitness is not convenient. The most important issue is their poor financial aids esp. for graduate students.

Pros are that it is located in Chicago, home to worlds biggest derivatives market, and the msf program is very well suited for the financial markets. Cons would be that faculty for some subjects need to be upgraded.

Degree: Psychology

Pros- great location with access to many opportinities, great mentorship, good balance between clinical training and research work. Cons- not as well funded as other schools, location within the city lends itself to more criminal activity than I would like.

1.25 out of 5.0
Degree: Architecture
Graduation Year: 2016

They have very limited sources of financial aid for international students, so it costs a lot and the burden will distract your concentration on courses. Pretentious work is highly done among the student and faculty, and you are mostly charged for pretentious activities. However, it is not included all students and faculty.
3.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2015

To be honest, the teachers here in IIT are great. They always willing to help student,hoping they are able to learn more, instead of just teach within lectures and student just go home without any gain. Reasonable homework/assignment workload during semester ,provide the opportunity to use what we've just learnt. However, faculty resource for Biology department was extremely low. They cant even afford every student have the chance to take part in research projects. For biology, the biggest problem is not enough funding. Which makes the lack of PhD students, scholarship and TA/RA positions, even just compare to other department at same institute.
