The University of Chicago does not intend to release admissions numbers this spring for the Class of 2021. This includes the number of applicants and the acceptance rate. 

“The numbers will not be final until the third week of fall quarter,” a spokesperson for the University said in a statement to The Maroon. The University has released these numbers in the spring in previous years, and many schools release admissions numbers around this time. All Ivy League institutions released these numbers last week. 

The University sent out its regular decisions on March 17. It notified Early Action and Early Decision I applicants in December, and Early Decision II applicants were notified in February. This was the first year that the University offered Early Decision options.
