Welcome! If you're reading this, I'll assume you're interested in learning more about UChicago-- an excellent choice, if I do say so myself. I'm Grace*, a Senior Admissions Counselor and a member of the Outreach team in the admissions office here, and a college alumna. Over this year, I'll be on hand to answer any questions you might have about UChicago and the opportunities we offer.
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 Maryland minus DC and immediate suburbs, Minnesota, North Dakota, and South Dakota) 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.
If you'd like to get in direct contact with a current student, feel free to do so in a separate post, or by e-mailing email@example.com.
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.
I am, however, happy to be here, and happy to let you know anything you'd like to know about UChicago. So... ask away!
*Some of you may remember me from my days as a student posting here-- yes, I am "that Grace". I'm full-time counseling staff now, so although you may be tempted, please do go ahead and defer your student life questions to our current students; as I am now officially an old person, I'm sure they'll be able to answer them much more accurately than I could :)
