    Glad I cast a very wide net this cycle +4 with the R

    Would have been an amazing II experience though.

    Oddly specific question: has anyone else who has interviewed and been passed up in multiple rounds of acceptances received email responses to thank you notes that were really personal and seemed promising?

    Same! Really enjoyed my interview day here and although I'm not the biggest fan of big cities like chicago hyde park felt like a nice place to be where its close to the city but not in the middle of it.

    Does anyone know when pritzker gets back to us with our financial aid packages?

    Also, for everyone else who was accepted in dec (or before), are the "Information Page" and "Letter" tabs on the portal (under the admissions decision tab) blank?? Wanna make sure I'm not missing any important info...

    Late Nov/early Dec interviewees: does anyone remember when they said they would release the next round of decisions?

    Yup, both blank on my end as well. Their website on financial aid says they'll e-mail us a financial aid guidebook & fin aid application after acceptance (idk when). I'd at least make sure to submit FAFSA asap and put UChicago as one of your schools.

    Already got my financial aid app a while ago (accepted 10/15) so be on the look out for that soon. Haven't gotten the guide or the package yet though. Hoping it's a big one lol

    Do you know if Pritzker gives out need-based scholarships? The website is a bit vague on that.

    I'm wondering this too because I know they said most of Nov would hear in Jan but I can't remember exactly whether us Late Nov/early Dec ppl were pushed to Feb or not

    Hmm that's interesting. I interviewed mid/late november and was told January on my interview day. Maybe they pushed it back. Wouldn't be surprised at all since it seems all the schools I was supposed to hear from this month have been delaying until February.

    I remember hearing January on interview day, but alas, she said February. She made it sound like they are aiming for everyone to hear back one way or another then (besides maybe waitlists)

    No clue. My guess is yes but I have no idea what I'm basing that off of, I think I recall someone said they had generous need-based aid?

    Can anyone talk about the format of the interviews? Is it 2 open file interviews?

    Yes two open file and then one that's half open with a student. I think the student will have your personal statement (and maybe activities but cant remember for sure). They won't have your secondary though.
