There are not any second rounds planned for this year as CPS has gotten progressively better about estimating the response rate for the schools. It’s not utterly impossible, but unlikely.
The scores this year “nudged down slightly” for the most part. So for a change, no increases in the cutoffs, likely due to adding 300+ extra seats. There are a few tiers within a few schools that went up but we likely won’t see the big leaps we saw the past 2 years.
Cutoffs will be posted on Monday 2/25.
The IB schools will continue to call down their own waitlist as spots are turned down there (which there likely will be due to kids getting multiple spots.)
