Why ED is not always the best choice

Schools tell you that if you apply ED there is a greater chance of getting accepted. True. But they fail to tell you that since it is a binding agreement, any financial aid that you get is final and done with. Not only that but through this process, students change their mind so much that a school that they may love in November may not be the school that they end up loving in May. So is ED good for any applicant? ED is good only for students who know that School X is the perfect one for them because they have visited it countless times, have compared it with others and this one has consistently been the one at the top. Also, ED is perfect for students that do not need financial aid. For more reasons on why ED is not always the best choice for a student, read the below article on this type of application plan!

College Counseling


I can't say enough wonderful things about our college counseling experience. The individualized attention, the high level of organization and follow up, and the unrelenting support made all the difference in my daughter's application process. Her guidance reduced a large amount of stress for us as parents and she is clearly extremely knowledgable and experienced. My daughter clicked with her and felt that she had a trusted and caring consultant in every step of the way. We had a fantastic experience and I highly highly highly recommend her!!

Many thanks for all of your help in this process! I would never have been able to offer all of the counseling that you offered to my daughter during this process. I was right next to her when she received her acceptance notice! What great news! We are super happy!
