Ranked fourth...one of the best if not the best employment outcomes....please enlighten us.
Also curious. I mean, I've heard the saying that it's "where the fun goes to die" but it seems to have helped its grads achieve great outcomes?
PM me! There is a long, long list - not to do with employment outcomes, but, uh, when they say "where fun comes to die" they mean "where everyone comes to develop severe mental health issues" (literally everyone I know who ever went there developed a mental health issue while there).
I went to undergrad at Chicago, and it should surprise nobody that this is an extreme exaggeration. Like at all universities, plenty of students struggled with mental health stuff, but nowhere near the majority. And the university has been trying to make the school more "fun" since the 90s, for better or for worse it's lost a lot of its traditional brutality (though it's still not Harvard or Brown).
The racial situation on campus can definitely be fraught at times - and I just saw a post on Above the Law today on a very questionable publication of the Burke Society, the Law School's far right discussion club. The admin is pretty much universally unpopular, but that won't affect your daily life.
