If you are a high school senior or the parent of one and you’re at least a year into the college search, you have probably researched your options among several schools. Maybe you surfed the Web or ran through some college guides (hopefully our profiles, too) and visited a few campuses when you had the time. If all of the research points you to one school, apply Early Decision to that school upon these conditions:
Early Decision is a binding commitment on the part of the applicant as well as their high school guidance counselor. Not only must students agree to withdraw all other applications, if admitted, they can apply to only one school under Early Decision. A counselor can assist on only one Early Decision application for a student. Any more and the counselor is in violation of professional ethics standards.
