Apply to UChicago

UChicago brings together a diversity of top minds from around the world. Every application goes through the same holistic review process, meaning that there's no one piece of information—academic and extracurricular records, essays, letters of recommendation, and SAT or ACT scores—that could tell us on its own whether or not you would be a good fit for the College. And that's really what this process is about: finding a college home that is a good fit for your personality and your plans.
