2.
An elite private university where the work is hard and the name recognition sucks, but the monetary payoff (for some majors, at least) is ridiculously awesome.
"So where did you go to school?"
"The University of Chicago."
"Sweet, me too! What fast food restaurant are you working at?"
"No, no, not the University of Illinois at Chicago. The University of Chicago. I got a degree in Economics there and now I'm making 120k a year on Wall Street."
"Oh. Would you like fries with that?"

home and study!

6.
noun. The best school in America. Known for its rigorous curriculum, intelligent students, brilliant teachers and ugly females. The University of Chicago is better than all of the Ivies. Washington University in St. Louis thinks it compares with UofC but, thats just not factually correct. Usually, the smartest person you know goes to University of Chicago. Harvard is the UofC of the NE, Stanford of the West and Oxford of the European continent.
Student recently accepted into University of Chicago: Whew.

Student recently accepted into Yale: Why are you relieved shouldn't you be excited you go accepted into the University of Chicago?

Student recently accepted into University of Chicago: I'm relieved I don't have to go to Yale.
