How close were they?

WORDS!

Super Smash Bros. is an institution for many house communities here. Some sweet news for fans of the game from Nintendo.

We tend to think that ice cream is better unmelted but this is mesmerizing.

Looks like a blasty blast. 

Ask us anything!

Well, almost anything. We have a few current students and an admissions officer who are happy to answer questions about UChicago (or the college application process generally) in our inbox. So, ask away! If you’d prefer your question be answered privately, let us know— sometimes we do post questions and responses in our feed if we feel it’s something others could benefit from knowing, too. 

Numbers are cool maaaan.

UChicago Accounts: Open yours early!

As some of you know already, this year, UChicago will be accepting either the Common Application (open August 1) OR the Universal Application (open July 1). It’s an either-or option for you— you should choose only one method of submission, and we have no preference between the two. 

This year, we are opening up the option for you to create an account with our website and begin working on portions of your UChicago Supplement early— even before the Common Application and Universal Application are open. Here’s some deets:

-          You may create a UChicago Account at getstarted.uchicago.edu

-          You may create an account before you begin the Common Application or Universal Application OR we will create an account for you after you start the Common or Universal Application

-          The UChicago Supplement can be found and submitted in the UChicago Account. There is no advantage to you to submitting your supplement this early in the summer, so no need to rush— we just want you to be able to get a head start if you’d like to. 

-          Students using the Common Application can submit the supplement either through a UChicago Account OR through the Common App Website. Students Using the Universal App may only submit the supplement in their UChicago account. You will still need to complete either the Common Application or Universal Application in addition to our supplement for us to be able to consider your application. 

Any questions? Feel free to send them to our inbox, or to call or email us at collegeadmissions@uchicago.edu / 773-702-8650.
