So, I'm having a bit of an identity crisis and may be having a change of heart in what I want to study in college. What's the strangest double-major or major-minor combination you've seen at UChicago?
My roommate is an economics major with a creative writing minor. (I actually know several people at UChicago who have had this combo). Nothing is a weird mashup here— feel free to let your majors express your interests and desires rather than feeling like they have to “match”!
We have decided that today, Thursday, December 5th, is Treat Yourself Thursday. Today, we interrupt our regularly scheduled UChicago photos and information to bring you only hilarious YouTube videos and gifs that will brighten your day, because we know this is a time of year where finals, college apps, and cold weather all roll in to one little ball of stress. Treat yourself to some cat videos, gifs, and poorly photoshopped weird memes in our feed today!
This isn't really a question so much as a note of gratitude from an incredibly stressed-out senior who got the greatest piece of college mail ever today. Thanks for the kind yet simultaneously snarky postcard, including the kitten, and thanks for reminding me that admissions counselors are (potentially awesome) human beings at a time when I probably needed it most!
Aw, thanks so much! Now go play outside or something.
Is there an estimated day or week that Early Action decisions are going to be made?
We don’t know quite yet, but it will be sometime in mid-December— we’re still making sure everything is processed, read, and ready to go. We’ll definitely announce the date of decision release on allllll the social media sites once we know it.
