hey, i am applying to depaul, pitt, northwestern and loyola chicago.
here's my order of choices:
northwestern (very slim chance i'll get in...i'm not even getting my hopes up. its pretty unrealistic.)
(i am also applying to BU, NYU, Xavier, and some others)
i too want an urban campus, and even though northwestern isn't in the city exactly its such a goood school, if i got in i would go in a heartbeat. anyway pitt is my top out of the 3 left, because i just really liked it when i visited. the tour guides were really helpful, students seemed happy, (its affordable. haha.) pittsburgh is a nice city -- not as large as chicago obviously, but still has a lot of the great resources that a major city has. plus i'm from philadelphia so i feel as though pittsburgh is far away enough that i can see what its like to be on my own, but close enough where i can go home in an emergency. also what impressed me about pitt was that many of their advisors were willing to assist me in the college process even if i didn't choose to go to pittsburgh. also i would say that for most things pitt is a better school than depaul and def better than loyola chicago. like scout59 said, loyola chicago isn't exactly in the city....just something to consider.
good luck to your daughter!
anyone willing to chance me? DePaul admission chances? chances of admission? Loyola chicago admission chances?
