Just about everyone knows someone who has been bullied, in ways big and small. Understandably, though, many victims are reluctant to speak about their experiences. We found some who aren't.
Distance from home: 1,200 miles NW
Admission difficulty: Very difficult, and getting harder
People: If you have trouble falling asleep because you cannot wait to wake up and go to school, you belong here. If your idea of a college experience includes debating Aristotle at 4:00 A.M. in the bathroom, you belong here.
Known for producing: Nobel Laureates, world-famous economists, college professors, Supreme Court justices, billionaires
Pros: Arguably the best economics department in the world, abundant research opportunities, the most intellectually stimulating atmosphere you could ask for, only twenty minutes from Chicago
Cons: Let’s put it this way, our unofficial motto is, “UChicago: where fun comes to die.” Any questions?
Social scene: Do not expect to have a traditional, frat-party filled experience. The parties happen, but most people go downtown, play video games, board games, watch movies, etc.
Athletics: Does debating count? Nobody comes here for the athletics, but lots of people participate in intramural sports.
Campus and city: The campus is absolutely gorgeous. We have more ivy than the entire Ivy League, and it’s only around twenty minutes to Chicago, where the opportunities are endless.
Added plus: A famous individual visits the campus virtually every day of the week.
Added minus: The only people who have heard of your school are academics and employers. Most people assume that you are talking about University of Illinois at Chicago.
