Chalk Talk: Early Decision vs. Regular Decision
There are many different types of college applications. Early Decision (ED) is one of the most popular. ED applications often have early deadlines, sometimes as soon as November 1st, though some colleges set them as early as October 15th. Since they are early, applicants compete against fewer other applicants, which improves the student’s odds. ED applications are also binding, which means the student signs a contract, along with parents, stating that s/he will attend the college if accepted. Colleges tend to look favorably on this, so it can be an advantage to the student, but it can also be a drawback. Because of these qualities, ED applicants tend to face much higher odds of acceptance, sometimes significantly higher. But a student should only ever apply ED to a school if s/he is absolutely sure that’s the college for him/her.
