Unless your soft is a prestigious undergrad (T20 or so), probably about 3-4 unless you're willing to ride a WL for a long time. It seems they do like to pull good softs off of the WL later on though, if you're willing to wait until April or May (or later).


I don't know about that. Based on numbers, I should not have gotten in, and especially not in the very first batch. I'm not a URM, nor is my UG even the littlest bit prestigious. It had to be my softs (or the naked picture of myself I sent the adcomms).

Thorntll-stop being so hard on yourself. Only on TLS is 96th percentile shameful. Besides, they needed some reverse splitters to make up for admitting me :wink:

As for softs, I think fit might be an even bigger criterion at Chicago. It has a tiny class size, and takes a lot of pride in maintaining a particular atmosphere. I was also under the impression that Berkeley's 'focus on soft factors' was more or less a cover for GPA whoring, although I could be wrong about that.

(That's not a crack at Thorntll, btw, just my increasing frustration at this cycle.)

No, it's true. It's ridiculous that 96th percentile still isn't good enough for most T10 schools, but it's still the case.

I know this should probably be in an "In at Chicago" thread but I couldn't find one.

Anyone receive their packet yet?
