This the place to post the officially released admissions' statistics. With an official representative on the forum, the statistics should be forthcoming as soon as the University deems such information worthy of full disclosure.

What is known so far is that more than 11,000 students (11,143) filed an Non Restrictive Early Application. The full details should be added here shortly.

Early action applications set another record, continue yearly rise ? The Chicago Maroon

    Nice marketing effort. All those t-shirts paid off.

    What t-shirt? I was accepted, and I don't have a t-shirt.

    Cool. All that is missing is the ... number of successful applicants. And perhaps a link to that elusive Common Data Set. Who will be the last to release. Columbia or Chicago. ;)

    So weird looking at the EA decision thread. Tons of accepted lol. It's like 70% or something of applicants from CC got into UChicago....... wut.

    Even with self-selectivity, the not-wanting-to-post-if-deferred/rejected psychology and blablabla, I didn't expect so many ACCEPT....

    Non-binding EA is a good strategy to get more applicants different from SCEA or ED of prestigious colleges. It was one of factors my daughter did EA to U Chicago. I love U Chicago, anyway.

    @Skyrior

    If you read the 2018 EA thread, most people wrote that they got deferred (including me, lol). I assume that they're just not posting stats on the Results page since that'd be pretty depressing to fill out.

    I see, I did not check the mega-thread at the time of posting of #6. Good luck though! Hope that you will get accepted! (Don't forget to indicate to UChicago that you're still interested!)

    The silence from the adcoms is ... deafening. Old habits rarely die.

    Question: if an applicant was deferred EA, does it indicate that on his or her RD application?

    It appears that Chicago admitted well over 1,300 students in the EA round.

    ~1,300/11,143 is about ~12% acceptance rate much lower than Harvard (~21%) and other colleges in EA/ED round.

    Yes they certainly did a huge marketing blitz! My son got something from them every week and sometimes twice a week, including the t-shirt. He didn't apply since they don't have his major, but was impressed with all the stuff they sent.

    Different animals altogether! The non-binding EA attracts plenty of "what I got to lose" applications. Here's a more interesting element:

    Try the percentage of the expected class that was admitted in the early round:

    Harvard? 922 for 1700 seats. In the past two years, 895 for 1700 and 772 for 1,670.

    Chicago? 1350 for an expected class of 1350? Or about 100 percent? The last two years were about 1380 for 1350 and 1532 for 1,350 seats.

    The resident adcom should feel free to correct the numbers, if they happen to be erroneous. Not waiting with bated breath for that to happen anytime soon!
