Is there any truth to this about NYU ED?

"One interesting thing you should know: NYU keeps the financial part of it’s admissions separate. If you are admitted, the people putting together your financial package won’t even know whether you applied ED or not, so you may still get a scholarship. That’s pretty awesome if you ask me. Make sure to contact schools and ask them their policy on this. I wouldn’t be surprised if some schools have copied NYU’s example."

I haven't heard this so I was wondering if the article confused NYU with Northwestern

Don't ED, ever, for any reason (minus trust fund baby or something, and even then...). I would be shocked if the people working down the hall from each other don't let them know you are bound to attend. And even if they didn't, when it comes time to negotiate you have no walkaway power (other than sit out, which most don't do) and no other offers from other schools to show them. It doesn't make sense that they would offer a binding early decision if they didn't intend to take advantage the leverage it provides against you when it comes to distributing financial aid. NYU is a big business, I wouldn't imagine they are going to give up any more than they have to. Others with more experience EDing at NYU can correct me if I'm wrong here; I'm just thinking out loud rather than speaking from experience.

I believe that if one is accepted ED to Northwestern, it comes with a full tuition scholarship. Do not ED to NYU as you will lose all bargaining power that you might have otherwise.
