how many early decisions can you apply for?

Postby think1st » Tue Oct 12, 2010 2:36 am

I'm quite confused with all ED/EA thing.

what's the difference between Early Decision and Dearly Action?

i understand the difference between binding and non-binding.

my question is..

Q1.can you apply for more than one BINDING ED and choose one supposing you been accepted to multiple schools? (I dont think so...but am i correct?)

Q2.can you apply one BINDING ED + multiple NON-BINDING EDs ?

Q3.do you process EA thru LSAC as well? how come i can find any menu regarding EA at LSAC site?

someone answer or link me where i can get full info regarding ED/EA plz

No - unless you apply to one first, hear back, and there's still enough time to meet another school's ED deadline.

If it's non-binding, it shouldn't be a problem.

Submit all your applications through LSAC. Some schools process all applications before a certain date as EA, others ask you to check a box or otherwise indicate that you want to be considered EA. Check the instructions for each school's application for the specific policies.

There's no such thing as non-binding ED. The "non-binding ED" you're talking about would be EA.

Yes there is. See: Texas.
