<p>I'm looking to major in anthropology at Chicago if accepted and if I matriculate. However, since this department is ranked as first in the nation, will my wanting to major in anthropology (or any department of a college which is more renowned than others) work against me, help me, or not affect anything?</p>


<p>Not affect anything. You apply to the college; not for a specific major.</p>

<p>At Chicago, you don't decare your major until the end of your 2nd year.</p>

<p>Ah, I see. So what is the prospective major info used for? To compare with your activities and see if it truly is an interest of yours?</p>

<p>That's just on the basic information form--it's not used to evaluate candidates, however, it may be used in the interview.</p>

<p>"That's just on the basic information form..."</p>

<p>True. I didn't even take notice.</p>
