Chalk Talk: Early Decision II
More and more students are apply Early Decision in order to reap the many benefits, such as higher acceptance rates. But not everyone will make the cut, and many of those who don’t are still extremely strong students. Early Decision II is a way colleges have devised to fix this problem. It’s essentially the same as Early Decision except that it isn’t that early—instead of a deadline of November 1, the deadline is usually mid-January or even later. This allows students who weren’t accepted at their top school another shot at all the benefits of Early Decision. Colleges tend to favor Early Decision and Early Decision II, along with Early Action, very heavily, so acceptance rates are still quite strong—much higher than they are with Regular Decision applications.
