I got a better feeling about Rush when comparing the two interviews. It could have just been the students I talked to, but they weren't very positive about the drawbacks that a public school has (such as - the school stopped distributing notes because it was too expensive). The facilities were nicer at Rush, but it is also a lot more expensive. I seem to hear a lot on this board how happy the students are at Rush and how they aren't that happy at UIC. But I know it might be a skewed opinion.
Those are my opinions, but I'd like to hear others, because obviously UIC is much cheaper.

Doesn't uic charge for two summers? I think they do and this brings two of the four years equivalent to Rush.

On the charging for summer tuition deal, has anybody heard of any other school doing this? I think Northwestern's tuition is prorated for the 4 years, but does any other school actually charge for "summer school"? Seeing as Illinois is already one of the most expensive, if not most expensive public school in the nation, the idea seems pretty ridicilous.

In addition, when I received my financial aid packages from Rush and UIC, the decision was very clear. Overall, the bill for Rush came out to be about $51,000 while that for UIC was around $35,000 if I remember correctly. The cost differences are more than just tuition. The loans you'll get from Rush, the private ones, have ridiculously high interest rates, and at UIC you'll get good Stafford loans etc. for ALL your bills, that won't acquire interest until you graduate. No, you're not babied at UIC like you may be at private schools, but if you buckle down and work hard, you'll be fine.
