If nothing else, we have a campus that looks good, snow or shine. 

This school as Halloween approaches: BooChicago; The result of the manic rush to finish the EA application: BooHooChicago; The feeling after one finally completes the process: WAHOOChicago

We think this is SoTrueChicago.

By now, our new class of first years has learned to not step on the seal! Legend goes that stepping on the seal at Reynolds Club will ruin your chances of graduating in four years.

But that’s not really true…is it?

When do tour guide applications become available?

Usually in the early winter, around January! We’ll post a link when they become available. 

do you prefer seeing a composite 36 rather than a superscored 36? By the way, thanks for answering!

A 36 is a 36 any way it is achieved :) When we consider students’ scores, we consider only their superscore, so it really doesn’t matter to us how the score came to be. 

Hello! I was wondering about the paragraph limit on the "Why UChi" essay. Is it okay if I have three paragraphs instead of 1-2? I just love the school so much!!

Three is fine if you’d like! We suggest that this essay is around 250-300 words. 

I was wondering how communal bathrooms work (particularly at South because that's where I would looove to live). I heard that at least in South they tend to get split up b/w boys and girls and I was just wondering how that works, if it was by specific floors. Also, i heard that there are single private user ones and I was wondering if those were accessible by everyone. Thanks!

It depends on the dorm! In some dorms, the bathrooms are all permanently specific to one gender; in others, the bathrooms are permanently communal/mixed gender; in still others, the bathrooms are put up to a vote and only become mixed gender if 100% of the house agrees. Additionally, several of our dorms do have single-user bathrooms or private bathrooms within suites or rooms. All bathroom options are made clear on the housing application, and students are able to note on their housing application whether they’d prefer one option strongly such that you can be placed in a house that will fit your needs.
