While nothing in these contracts specifically states that you are released from them if not admitted, they do note that you are no longer bound to attend if not admitted to ED. However, after asking NYU's admissions office I got an interesting email:
NYU Admissions Office wrote:A student is released from his or her ED contract if he or she is not admitted. If a candidate is put on "hold" he or she is considered with the regular decision pool and no longer bound by the terms of the ED contract.
This confuses me because, to me, being released from the ED contract would mean you are free to initiate ED applications elsewhere because you are no longer bound by its terms (one of which is not to initiate any other ED applications that cycle). They dodge the question when I email them so I am going to call and see what they say, but do any of you have some insight?
It would be nice to definitively know which schools allow you to "double dip" on ED's and which don't.
