In the coming weeks college-bound students who applied Early Decision (aka ‘ED’) to their first-choice school should be receiving notice: ‘In’, ‘Out’ or quite often ‘Deferred’.
In this post I will presume that students who have applied Early Decision and their families have done their homework before submitting their applications for admission. For these students and their families I will explain the work that remains after your application is accepted.
College admissions offices like Early Decision because it fills the freshman class faster. Applicants who get accepted like it because they avoid the long wait and headaches of submitting and tracking applications to many schools for several months. But while Early Decision provides great rewards, they are tied to mature responsibilities.
