My review

The Good:

Its cheap! I don't have any more student loans!

The Bad:

The student life is mediocre, some of the class rooms are decrepit and the classes are often too big for the professors and TA's to assist their students with all of their concerns or questions.

Would I do it again?

Yes, Planning on attending for my Master's Degree/MBA

About this school

Biggest influence when choosing this school Financial aid

The financial aid process was a hassle, but I eventually received the aid I needed.

Professors are generally Intimidating

The night life is Off Campus

Every student at this school needs parking assignment because you cannot rely on the CTA or the horrible campus shuttle to get between classes. you are better off getting parking and selling your u-pass to offset the cost.

Most students spend their Saturday nights likely off campus, using a fake ID to get into a bar if they are not of age

About the reviewer

Went to Stevenson High School

You might also consider Loyola University Chicago

Favorite class is Anthropology and Marketing

Favorite professor is David Koehler and Joel Palka

Favorite activity is getting some sleep on the various couches in BSB between classes

Another awesome thing is cheap tuition

Study Hard? Pray? Donate Money? get good grades in high school and write an interesting and well written personal statement.

I wish I knew that the vast majority of the TA's are non english speakers and very difficult to work with.

Preparation for the workforce

Time needed to find a job post-graduation 1-6 months
