College Admissions and Class of 2020 Overview

Have you ever wondered about the admissions process for College students at the University of Chicago?  Did you know that for the incoming class of 2020, College Admissions saw a record-high selectivity, admitting only 7.9 percent of applicants?  Who are these incoming students? What do our recruiting efforts and admissions cycle look like? Who develops the quirky essay questions that applicants have to answer? 

During this engaging session, Daniel Follmer, Deputy Dean and Director of College Admissions, will provide an overview of the Class of 2020 – including selectivity, diversity, and demographics. After this session, staff will better understand how the College Admissions office recruits, selects, and enrolls the incoming class.
