from the inevitable wikipedia article

It is affiliated with the University of Chicago, and about half the students have a parent who is an employee of the university (and thereby receive a discount off the full tuition, normally as much as $20,000 per year).[1]

It is among the top five feeder institutions in the nation for elite colleges according to the Wall Street Journal.[2][3] The student body is about 60% white and contains over 44 nationalities.

The school has over 1,700 students currently enrolled, though there are plans to increase the size.[citation needed] Ninety-nine percent of each graduating class enrolls in a four-year college or university
I'm not from Chicago but was doing some biography research a few months ago and that's when I first heard of the place. Friends who live in chicago told me it's considered a pretty top notch school.

UChicago is one of the best universities in the country and world. It's on par with all of the Ivy League universities. This past year, their enrollment went up about 200% because many of the Ivies removed their early action, so lots of students applied to UC over them...

That should tell you something about the kinds of students there.
