Admissions Interview: Yes - Daughter interviewed with admission counselor. Asked some interesting questions. One was: if you could sit down with any three people from history, who would they be and what would you talk about?
Information Session: Yes - Session similar to those at other schools. All info available on college website, so really just a rehash unless you hadn't visited their site - many hadn't, apparently, judging by questio
Campus Tour: Yes - Tour with current student. Lots of good info about campus and student life. Did not see dorm, but was told that all are so different seeing one wouldn't provide that much info.
Classroom Visit: Yes - Daughter sat in on English class. Said professor was friendly and very enthusiastic about topic. Students were engaged in discussion and obviously thoughtful and prepared. Daughter was very pleased.

Campus Visit Notes for The University of Chicago
Visit to campus confirmed daughter's impressions that this is a really cool place and would be awesome to be student here.
Hotel/Lodging Recommendations or Comments:
Stayed at Best Western River North. About 20 minutes from campus (during morning rush hour), but great discount for UofC visitors and FREE parking. Excellent location,esp. staying more than one day.
Dining/Restaurant Recommendations or Comments:
Ate in dining hall -- good food. Plenty of restaurants available in Hyde Park.
Other Comments (Transportation, local attractions, parking, etc.):
Parking on campus tough; used hospital parking garage. Validate in Admissions office to pay only 6$ for day. Plan to walk a lot. Don't just visit the campus -- see something of Chicago.
