Hyde Park’s Seminary Co-op Bookstore is not merely a bookstore. It is a community. It is a small town. It is a church, a sacred place.
…so says renowned legal scholar/former UChicago professor/Co-Op member Cass Sunstein in what he calls a “love letter” to our store, which ran in the chicagotribune yesterday. Touched, honored, misty-eyed - we are all of these things and more.

We begin reading applications just after our application deadline, and each application is reviewed several times before final determinations are made in an admissions committee toward the end of our application cycle. So, there’s no advantage/disadvantage in terms of when we wind up reading your application in our cycle— everyone’s final decision is made in our admissions committee.
