I think UIC is definitely a great option for school in Chicago. For one, it is really really reasonably priced. While most of the private schools in Chicago will run you well over $18,000, this place is a big money saver. The quality of education here is great too. They have a huuuge campus and lots of students here so there's a great social life at this school. Academically, they offer lots of classes here and have some great programs to take advantage of. Overall, this is a great option for your studies, because you will be getting a great education, a wonderful experience, and all that for a reasonable price.
