50% of students gave Illinois Institute of Technology, Chicago 5 stars overall.

Student Ratings

Alumnus - Grad Year 1999

Overall Rating

Good academic school - heavily focused on engineering and architecture - 3/1 male/female ratio. It's near some bad neighborhoods on the south side of Chicago, but there's a pretty good neighborhood next to campus and you can easily get to other parts of Chicago via the El train. Definitely not a party or sports school, but I think their academics are pretty good and the city is great. When I went, they had a great scholarship (Camras) available, one of the best merit scholarships around. Considering the ridiculous cost of college these days, getting a good scholarship can make a huge difference, and when I was looking at schools I only found Illinois Tech, Texas A&M and the University of Oklahoma to have great merit scholarship programs.
