I live 30 minutes away from UIC and a lot of my friends go/ will go to UIC so I can tell you what I know.
They are pretty good in the medical field, so that’s good for you that you want to study that because I don’t really know about the rest of their majors. The majority of the student body commute, so there’s a difference on social life compared to, say, UIUC. The type of people you will most likely see there are first generation students.
I wouldn’t say UIC is bad. A lot of people seem to go there for med. There might be some bad professors, but every university has those. I would say that they’re a nice value for what they offer. However, if you have other options you should probably search up their rankings on different trustable sites.
