What impressed you positively?

"Very intelligent students. Nice faculty." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The students were cocky. They kept emphasizing that they don't get good Board scores, but that they don't have to because residency programs want people from UChicago. I know they meant it as a good thing, but for me, bragging that they are behind in a category other top schools do well at turned me off." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Hyde Park is not the safest neighborhood. A student told my wife (who came with me to look at the campus) that since the beginning of school (in late September, it was then late October) there had been multiple armed robberies, a couple rapes and a shooting. My wife and I obviously would not care to live near the school." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The interviews were okay. The first one with the director of admission went well, she really seemed to care about me and what I had to say. My student interview was horrible. He was 10 minutes late to get me, and then talked to me about movies I'd seen. My faculty interview was in the very last time slot of the day, and I cold tell she did not want to be there. For my hour interview she only kept me 20 mintues. I imagine that my interview experience was probably just an abnormality, but I felt like I had wasted my day." Report Response
