Application results for the class of 2021 (Those  entering school in the fall of 2017)

Chicago did not formally release this information this spring for the first time, but I do have a snapshot.  Politics, people.  There is something that they do not want to discuss, or a problem within the admissions department that has slowed them down. However,  Dean Nondorf spoke at a gathering in the late spring, and here are the (somewhat fuzzy) details:  EA/ED acceptance was “in the teens;” regular admitted was 2%, and accepted after being deferred 0.5%. The Dean also said that statistically it is the most competitive class thus far. Overall acceptance is under 8%.

Previous confirmed data (last year) put the admissions GPA at 4.0 weighted, 3.8 range unweighted, an average ACT of 33 and SAT Reading/Math at 1492.  Yep, a tough admit.  But Berkeley sure is catching up . . .
