      Life In University of Illinois at Chicago

      Pros

      One of the pros that UIC provided besides the school course is the resume workshop which helps students to gain interview experience and practical problems for us to tackle before getting an actual one.

      Cons

      One of the downsides of UIC is the housing which is substantially high for students who are looking for an affordable apartment and near the school. While there are many options such as house sharing but I believe student performance would increase significantly if we have a better place to stay and also cheap.

      There is no equity for people of color, some mid level management are so swamped with responsibilities that they are almost unaccessible, transfers and promotions may be based on who you know, not how qualified you are
