Do these people really drive you crazy?

I asked this guy who's in my year if he knew any easy A classes to fulfill these gen ed/core requirements, then he was like, "You're in school to learn, not to get a high grade" and didn't give me any helpful response. Honestly, this guy is like the stereotypical trust fund liberal. He studied this language (Urdu) and got D/C- through the whole sequence and is majoring in some worthless liberal arts major (think art history and the like). I also asked him, "Why did you continue studying the language if you weren't doing well?" Then he just said, "I just have more persistence than you." I didn't even bother arguing with him about how his 2.5 GPA will likely lead him to unemployment, but it just irks me that I'm going to be possibly subsidizing this guy after graduation when he's unemployed and I'm (hopefully) making $100k+ in ibanking. I've even observed him in my dorm, and he doesn't really study a whole lot.

Maybe he showed the admissions people his giant balls and they were impressed.

Though an excellent/world-class university, UChicago actually isn't that hard to get into.

True 10 years ago, certainly 20 years ago, not true today. Class of 2017 acceptance rate was 8.8%. Lower than half of the ivy league.

^^^ Sounds like your school admits a lot of trolls. Please go back under your bridge.

OP is probably involved in "That Yale Thing."

Wow! I just noticed that OP has 22 dings and no SBs.

I'm a student at UChicago and it's definitely a "hot" place to be right now. You can go ahead and throw all the stereotypes out the window because they're outdated for my class. I consistently see people put UChicago in the tier below HYPSM (with Columbia, Dartmouth, Brown, and non-Wharton Penn) which is great.

That being said, the decline of the school from the 1980s and subsequent resurrection in the 2000s is really appropriate for the school's mascot.

That being said, the decline of the school from the 1980s and subsequent resurrection in the 2000s (appropriate for the school's mascot, the phoenix) really hurts when it comes to IB recruiting - in my experience, there aren't that many College alumni in top positions, though plenty from Booth.

Nobody is assailing the quality of UChicago in this thread. In my opinion, it's pure academics are on par or better than the majority of the Ivy league.

Recruiting tends to be a lagging indicator. All the good UChicago kids will eventually be in top positions in the next 5-10-20 years. So this will ultimately benefit the future UChi generations

Ipso facto is just jelly that he didn't go to a prestigious university. By the way, I'll let you know that I already have a MM M&A ibanking internship under my belt going into recruiting season like a BAWSS!

pryan2016, don't be that weird little asian dude at all the IBD recruiting events. Work on the 3.3 gpa, get into a top MBA, and hopefully, you'll end up as prestigious as me. Good luck.
