    From what I have heard about UW-madision..its a pretty difficult school..i heard it from a friend who goes to there pharm school...you might wanna ask other people about this..but i heard teachers are not that great..and its not a student friendly school..i know the building was nice...if i were u i would choose UIC..i got rejected from there..but did apply to both..UIC is in downtown chicago..its happening..yes the building sucks..but many resources available to you..plus teachers are nice there..and repectable..plus its in the medical district..and pretty cheap school as well...

    How much time do you have to decide about Wisconsin? I ask because if it's at all possible try to make an appointment with the school and visit the campus to get a feel for it. I know it's easier said than done, and that it will cost a flight and maybe a night in a hotel, but it's 4 years of your life. It's a tough enough decision having seen the schools, but it's even more difficult if you've never interacted with the students, faculty, or staff, or had the opportunity to look at what they have to offer.
    I wish I would have visited schools prior to applying, when I had my interview with one school I had never visited before, I realized that I would never have applied in the first place if I had.
    Good luck with your decision.

    I'd have to say Madison for me on this one. It's just a good example of something that you can't really ask other people to decide for you. A few hundred bucks for a hotel/gas is nothing compared to the tuition for 4 years. :)

    Plus Madison is beautiful! It is the epitome of a college town. I can take or leave UIC

    I am from Illinois... but if I had the choice to go to Wisconsin or UIC.. I'd pick Wisconsion. At UIC, there is no campus life.. I love Chicago but not the area around the college. If you want that urban-girl lifestyle.. go to UIC but I'd prefer a campus/college-girl lifestyle. :thumbup:
