Question Re: University of Chicago EA

I know that Chicago's EA transfer program is binding. Does this mean that you MUST leave your current school to transfer to Chicago or simply that you give up the option to transfer to a different school? Thank you.

I have been informed otherwise by a student who transferred to Chicago EA.

So what you're saying is, you were told you don't have to go by someone that ... did?

"Early Decision acceptances are binding on the applicant, which means that, if admitted, you will commit to matriculating at the Law School and will withdraw all other transfer applications at other law schools."

I don't see how this can be read any other way...

Chicago Regular ED wrote:If admitted, Early Decision applicants must enroll at the Law School and withdraw all applications at other law schools regardless of their status.


These seem similarly worded. Isn't the claim that you can withdraw from regular ED apps assuming you don't attend any law school that cycle? If so, isn't that how UChi's transfer ED would work assuming the similar wording?

The simple answer is pretty obvious: call their admissions office and ask.

Yeah, pretty much. I don't see how the fact that they ended up going automatically discredits what they said, or even discredits it at all. I mentioned that it was someone who transferred to Chicago EA because it seems to actually give more credit to them because you figure they probably researched whether or not they would actually have to go.
