Reviews for Illinois Institute of Technology, Chicago
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.
Most classes are fairly small after you get through the freshman weed out. Workload is pretty high for engineering & architecture, but you've got to learn a lot if you want to make the big bucks, right? I had some really good professors and labs along the way.
This is not the school to go to if you're looking for a party/fun college experience. It's mostly guys and mostly geeky people, and I made some great friends while I was there. The campus is not in the greatest part of Chicago, but the city is easy to get to, and you can walk to a White Sox game if you want to. Bridgeport is a pretty safe neighborhood to - the Daley family and a bunch of other Chicago politicians live there, so they keep it pretty safe.
