Early Decisions

Postby ag912 » Fri Jun 10, 2011 7:05 pm

Are there any serious consequences to applying early decision at multiple schools, based on the NYU and Columbia admissions page the only repercussions seem to be "New York University [or Columbia] School of Law revoking its offer of admission."

An auto reject at both schools isn't enough for you?

I'm no expert on C&F, but I would imagine they look down on potential lawyers who have intentionally and fraudulently signed their name to a contract they knew they were breaking/were going to break.

I really hope that you aren't thinking of doing something as unethical as doing multiple ED's at the same time as all of the early decision contracts you could possibly sign all prohibit this.

With many schools however, you can sometimes do sequential early decisions once you have been released from the prior contract via rejection/waitlist/deferral/etc. Contact schools to verify their policy on this as it does vary from school to school.

It's almost like the profile is fake.

What did he actually do? Did he ED more than one school?

It seems like he ED'd Columbia, but after being accepted, he did not withdraw his other applications. Though the realness of the profile seems to be questionable, especially when it doesn't really make sense to ED there with those numbers, as HYS aren't too far out of the question and money at CCN is possible
