UChicago College Admissions
When analyzing applications are you more interested in applicants who have high GPAs and high ACT scores or the people who tend to have a fairly high GPA and ACT scores, but balance it with other factors such as volunteer work, school activities, internships, ect.?

In all things, balance.

We look at applications holistically, meaning, we take every aspect of your application into account. It is important for us to know that you will be a good fit in the UChicago community, and the only way for us to know that is if we look at how you respond to the application essays, where you spent your time in high school (did you babysit? were you a varsity athlete? were you caption of your debate team?), and, yes, your GPA and test scores, among other things.

Congratulations to alumnus, Matthew Thomas, AB ‘97, who recently debuted his novel We Are Not Ourselves.

We’re still doing our dorm spotlights, but check out this video about house/dorm life in general!

You’ll make mistakes, but as long as what you’re focused on is what you’re passionate about, all the other things will fall into place. If there’s anything you’re going to give less priority to, it shouldn’t be your passion. You can never go wrong with that.
Great advice from Dan Rubin, in celebration of The Great Discontent turning three today. (via creativesomething)
