Prospective students who wish to enroll in a school that features 87 Nobel Prize laureates may wish to enroll in courses at the University of Chicago.
Many of its award winners have studied in such fields as physics, economics, literature and chemistry. For instance, James Franck - a notable physicist - once attended and studied at the school.
Franck completed his PhD at the University of Berlin and later began research on the Manhattan Project while at the University of Chicago. He became Director of the Chemistry Division at the Metallurgical Laboratory at the school. He won the Nobel Prize in Physics for his work on the Franck-Hertz experiment which confirmed the Bohr model of the atom.
President Barack Obama attended the university's law school. He is one of only three presidents to be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize while still in office. He also has the distinction of being the first president to receive the honor during their first year of office. The $1.4 million he received for the award was donated to many different charities.
