I think I'm going to hold off on the de facto ED LOCI until they waitlist me.
It's hard to say, since Chicago took several 3.8+/168-169's but waitlisted a bunch of 3.6/172's. But they do have a reputation for emphasizing undergrad prestige.
Before I got sucked into the black hole that is TLS I remember hearing that UChicago actually likes Big10 schools. Any truth to this?
there are a fair amount of big 10 schools in the glass menagerie booklet they sent out (Michigan/ Illinois & Wisconsin were the most common schools if I remember right). The Perry's also have big 10 alum among their family (Illinois and Wisconsin).
Aren't Northwestern and Illinois the two most represented UG schools after Chicago?
