UChicago admits 1532 EA - 18% admit rate

<p>As reported on the New York Times' "The Choice" site:</p>

<p>Early</a> Line on Early Admissions - NYTimes.com</p>

<p>This is interesting since I did't think that UChicago published its early action results - the same Early Decision article from last year on The Choice did not have UChicago's early admit information. I guess the NYT has some access to good "inside information".</p>

<p>Agree. I could not find anything for this year EA decision except for the statistics on The Choice of NYT. I guess NYT called UChicago obtaining the data.
UChicago improved a lot. Based on last year's 41~42% yield, I guess UChicago will have an overall admit rate at 12~13% and a yield at about 43-45% for the class of 2016.</p>

<p>For 41~42% yield estimate, see my post #11 at</p>

<p>Congratulations, UChicago!</p>

<p>Although it's possible the New York Times was able to probe and get the information off the record or do their own calculations somehow, I suspect that Admissions Office realized (officially or unofficially) that UChicago stacked up well enough against the competition that there was really no reason to be so coy. In other words, it was more in the University's interest to tell than not tell.</p>

<p>@david05 Yep, the ea admit rate was down 5 percentage points this year. Will be interesting to see what the overall admit rate will be; you're right it should be down several points.</p>

<p>What possible motive could UChicago have to not report their EA stats? I can't think of one.</p>

<p>Some people at admissions office of UChicago are slow workers. They haven't uploaded the profile for the class of 2015 yet, even though the class of 2015 has completed one quarter. Other elites --- Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Stanford already have their class of 2015 profile or statistics months ago.</p>
