Well, I chose Chicago in part due to smaller class size. So I might not be an expert here, but larger class size offers:
- more people in school to befriend, so potentially a bit more diversity
- larger alumni network
- more classes to choose from, especially seminars (possibly mitigated if larger class size means that you have to lottery into core classes, but I don't know if that is the case anywhere)
I'm sure there are other benefits as well. I think it's just a question of choice.
