I’m Hannah, an Admissions Counselor and a member of the Outreach team in the admissions office, and a UChicago alumna. Sound familiar? UChicago Admissions is reviving our presence here on College Confidential, starting with this new thread! Grace (now our Deputy Director of Admissions!) did a great job answering questions on here in the past, but because we’ve introduced many new admissions policies and programs in recent years, I thought it’d be best to create a brand-new thread with all the most current information.
So with that being said, I’ll be on hand (along with a few other members of the team) to answer any questions you might have about UChicago and the opportunities we offer.
First, a few ground rules: Although CC can be a good way to have general questions answered, your best source of information in the application cycle is and still will be your regional admissions counselor and our website, collegeadmissions.uchicago.edu. You can find out who your regional counselor is by looking at the “Contact Us” portion of our website, which should be updated with our new territories soon; if you’re from my neighborhood (Virginia and West Virginia) I’d love to hear from you, but would appreciate if you’d contact me at the address listed on that page. Further, I’ll be checking this account frequently but not constantly, so if you have an urgent question please go ahead and defer to your regional counselor or our general office contact line listed on that page.
Additionally, although I hope this goes without saying, I am not able to “chance” you or to offer you any information about your likelihood of admission or your application status. I’m also not able to offer information about specific financial aid decisions or individual admissions decisions. Again, if you have specific questions about your application, please reach out to your regional counselor – they will be more than happy to assist you!
If you’d like to get in direct contact with a current student, feel free to do so by e-mailing email@example.com. You can also contact our admissions office with questions by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Those of us on the Outreach team are so excited to be back on College Confidential and are happy to answer your questions. Looking forward to speaking with you all!
