U. of Chicago Students Plan to Fill Out Applications Today—in Protest

+ More

University of Chicago students angry about their school's decision to abandon its "Uncommon Application" for the Common Application plan to stage a protest at noon today, a tipster tells Paper Trail. The student newspaper's editorial board supported the administration's move (with some reservations), but an online petition called "Save the Uncommon App!" had garnered 1,004 signatures as of this morning. At today's protest, "students in the college will fill out the Uncommon Application to show how much we love it," the tipster writes.
