No, the University of Chicago does not offer Early Decision for transfer applicants. The transfer admission process at UChicago is through Regular Decision only. As a result, the benefits and drawbacks of Early Decision do not apply to transfer applicants in this case.

As a transfer applicant, it's important to focus on the factors that UChicago considers in the admissions process. These include your college academic performance, high school record, teacher recommendations, extracurricular involvement, and your reasons for transferring. In your essays, be sure to express why UChicago is the right fit for you and what you bring to the campus community.

Keep in mind that transfer admissions can be more competitive than first-year admissions, as there are usually fewer spots available. This makes it important to have a strong application and a compelling case for why you want to transfer to UChicago specifically. Good luck with your application!
