I went to Northwestern's 2nd Look, but I didn't get to make it to UChicago's. I think I have an understanding of NU, and so I can understand UChicago if you compare and contrast it to NU.

What are the similarities and differences?

I got some fin aid from both schools, and so the difference in cost is negligible (<15k difference after 4 years).

Could I get more information on the differences in school cultures? I think that's what I'm more interested in; I feel that I don't really know how to compare curricular differences until I actually arrive there. Both PBL and lecture-based have their merits and disadvantages, and I'm fine with both. However, UChicago does seem like they have a lot of class time - I'm curious about when they manage time to do other things (ie shadowing or even exploring the city).

It's tough for anyone to answer your question the way it is posed. No one has actually attended both schools so no one can give you a better idea than you already have (for instance there might be some who have been accepted to both, like you).

Better to pose the question as "All costs being equal, which school would you choose and why?" and then people will chime in about what they like and dont like about the specific schools and you can form your own Similarity /Difference table with all the data...

Point is your thread isnt getting a lot of traction because no one can actually tell you the similarities and differences having not attended both.
