UChicago Early Decision - 3.59 - 177 - Bad Idea?
« on: October 22, 2006, 05:26:50 PM »
I'm wondering if I should apply to University of Chicago Early Decision if I have  a 3.59 and 177. I prefer Yale to Harvard to Stanford to UChicago. Here are a few possible scenarios:

1) Get into UChicago and Harvard -> Very, very good
2) Get into UChicago and not Harvard -> Also very, very good
3) Get into neither UChicago nor Harvard -> Horribly bad

If you prefer Harvard to Chicago, it seems like you should just apply regular. Your stats will probably get you into Chicago, and it seems somewhat likely you'll get into Harvard.

You probably shouldn't apply ED to your fourth choice school.
