UChicago Goes ED: What This Means for Your Application
Considering the number of mailings they sent us "asking" the kid to apply, it's not surprising. If most admits come from ED, UChicago will bear a great cost from such strategy. As majority of the best students aspire to have a chance at HYPSMCall EA schools for good reasonthe possibility of being excluded from those schools may be a high enough cost to keep a lot of them away from UChicago. That's probably exactly why, when Chicago decided to add early decision a couple years ago, they decided to be one of the relatively few schools to offer ED2.
I got into West Point over 30 years ago. I would have trouble making the cut today. I am dismayed at how challenging it is for a high stats kid to get into the elites without a hook. I do wish more ED schools would adopt the Stanford model from a few years ago.
They try to render a final decision for all ED applications. My oldest son was denied. He was bummed, but appreciated the closure.
Today, one of my sons applied Harvard ED and was deferred. He would have preferred a decision. Chicago picks its admissions policies to solve Chicago's problems. ED by definition drives up yield, which means it drives down the admit rate you need to fill out the class. With the recent add of ED1 and ED2 and also UChi's super-aggressive marketing efforts, it would be surprising if their admit rate did not go down.

With almost all schools filling varying percentages of a graduating class via ED, SCEA, Z-List, spring admit, and transfers, virtually no two schools' admit rates are directly comparable these days. That was about 20 years ago. The only reason he applied was that I encouraged him to. He never visited UofC until after he was accepted.
He decided to attend when he visited on admitted students day. Since graduating he has had a very good career and been a credit to the university.The Chicago Maroon has asked incoming first-years to participate in a survey on topics ranging from family background to political identity to expectations for the future.
This year, out of the 1, first-year students, or just under a third of the class, provided responses. Over the past two years, the University has altered its admissions policies by accepting a larger class size and introducing two Early Decision rounds on top of the existing Early Action round. But how, if at all, have these changes altered the composition of the class?
Due to sampling biases from the voluntary nature of the survey, the results may not be perfectly representative. In particular, income level, religion, and political identification seem to be related to the majority of student opinions and backgrounds.
Despite the multiple changes in admissions in the past year, the makeup of the Class of follows many trends of previous years.
There were three non-binary responses, including genderqueer and genderfluid. Specifically, almost 7 percent more respondents identified as female, even though the official University profile of the Class of reveals a slight majority of incoming students are male—52 to 48 percent.Dean Nondorf: University of Chicago’s acceptance rate was 5.9% for the Class of 2023
From students coming from private schools, the gender ratio of response rate was 51 to 49 percent. In public schools, however, the scale tips, with the respondents being 44 percent male and 56 percent female. However, the ethnic composition of the Class of demonstrates a slight change from that of last year.
The percentage of white students rose by almost 10 percent, from 49 percent to over 57 percent, with the percentage of Asian students following the same pattern, rising from 21 to 25 percent of the class. Though the sharp increases in White and Asian proportions of the class are notable, changes in the racial and ethnic compositions of classes from year to year are common. Student responses reflect the geographic distribution shown by the official University profile.
The largest pools of students came from the Midwest and Mid-Atlantic regions, which each made up almost a fourth of incoming students.

As usual, the plurality of students at UChicago came from the Midwest. Among the incoming class, Christianity as a whole, however, was the second largest religious group, with 25 percent of students.

Students are notified of their admissions decision in mid-December, at which point they may be admitted, denied, or deferred for consideration with the Regular Decision pool. Applications are due January 1st the same as the Regular Decision deadline and applicants are notified of their admissions decision in mid-February. Early Decision I and Early Decision II may have different deadlines, but they both offer students who are sure that UChicago is their first choice school to receive their admissions decision in advance of other applicants.
Early Action also allows for students to receive their admissions decision early, but differs from both Early Decision plans in that it does not require students to attend UChicago if admitted.
Early action is great in that you get the best of both worlds: the early response and relief of applying early, with the flexibility of a regular decision plan. Because you are not obligated to attend if admitted, you can compare student life, academics, and financial aid packages from multiple schools, and ultimately make the most educated choice regarding your college career.
Early Decision shows greater interest in and commitment to a school than Early Action, and by admitting a higher ratio of Early Decision applicants, colleges can ensure their yield rates remain high. While Early Decision I will require you to prepare your application further in advance, many students find that the comfort of having your college decision finalized in mid-December makes the early deadline worth it.
Early Decision II gives applicants the statistical advantage of an Early Decision plan, without the added hassle of having to apply so far in advance. However, if you decide the benefits outweigh the costs, applying ED II can be a great way to demonstrate strong interest in UChicago.
In any case, for students who are seeking a way to demonstrate their strong interest in and commitment to UChicago, this development provides a great opportunity. Curious about your chances of acceptance to your dream school?
