^I only listed activities in which I hold leadership positions. I do participate in a variety of other activities though, including community service, Quill and Scroll, and some other honor societies.
My favorite subjects are English, History, and Biology (contradictory, I know). I don't enjoy math or chemistry. I'm looking for a program strong in both Biology and English & History. From what I gather, UChicago is strong in both.
Second question: Does UChicago offer good merit aid? I doubt I'd be eligible for a large sum of financial aid given my upper middle class status, so I was just wondering: merit scholarships, etc.? Do they ever give full rides, or at least sums greater than 10K per year for undergrads?
