Information Session: Yes - Not helpful in the slightest. The lady giving the session did not know the essay requirements on the common app and subsequently told us of the "more funner" activities available on campus.
Campus Tour: Yes - The students leading the tour were nice enough, but most of the buildings were closed for the holidays.

Campus Visit Notes for The University of Chicago
Sadly, the information session lowered the stature of the school in my eyes. An admission officer should be required to know the number of essays required for the common-app, accurate financial aid information, and, above all, proper grammar. Unfortunately, the lady assigned to present to us proved to be incompetent, to say the least.
Sure, the the student guides made for an eye-opening tour of the campus. Yet this is just not a school that is worth 55,000 dollars per year.

Anything is cheaper than travel by car. Parking fees are OUTRAGEOUS!
