Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2017

It's a very pricey program, but the quality of education is top notch. The school is known for its career services office, which works extremely hard to get jobs with competitive salaries for students.

Degree: Management
Graduation Year: 2016

Booth is one of the best schools in the world, if not the very best. The faculty are top notch, the staff are fantastic, and I learn a lot from my peers too. I'm about halfway through the part-time program and continue to want to pursue general management and entrepreneurship, but thanks to Marketing Strategy with Ann McGill, I'm seriously considering Marketing as well. Another class that stood out was Management Labs, an intensive, 10-week experiential course that felt like a consulting boot camp where I learned a lot and met classmates who have become my friends. Whatever I do, there's always honest, constructive feedback. Outside of school, I attend talks and social events, and I find time to enjoy so much that Chicago has to offer. I feel incredibly lucky to be pursuing such a fantastic education with getting closer to my dream of becoming Director of a cultural institution. At the same time, I get to explore other interests such as marketing and social enterprise and make the best of friends.

Degree: Mathematics
Graduation Year: 2015

It's a great graduate program with the world famous faculty members. But the campus is not as safe even though the university has put a lot of efforts into it. Besides, printing is expensive.

Degree: Mathematics
Graduation Year: 2015

Truly truly the most excellent program of statistics over the US...high quality, extreme hard coursework and heavy workload. The only thing that should be approved is the career service. For most Master students here, finding a job is totally a disaster.

Degree: Anthropology
Graduation Year: 2019

It's a very tough school, but then again, I wanted to go to a school where I was challenged, and I am very happy to have chosen UChicago.

Degree: Anthropology
Graduation Year: 2017

It's more or less what I wanted from a graduate program. Academically, it's rigorous and its faculty are by and large brilliant.

Degree: Anthropology
Graduation Year: 2016

Academic excellence with many services to support the student experience; competitive and narrowly focused department (though career services is more broad in scope).

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2016

Excellent faculty and resources but very expensive and not a lot of grant/scholarship money.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2015

This program is incredible for students who are a good fit - the program is less "clinical" than other social work programs. If you are a student who enjoys academia and intellectual pursuits (as opposed to the purely practical), this program is perfect. The professors and courses are interesting and stimulating. It is pretty expensive, but the cost of living here is low (versus New York, where many of the social work schools reside). Also, the program is quite generous with scholarship funding, unlike the other programs I was accepted into. Graduating students will have access to an excellent network, especially if they plan to stay in the Chicago area.
