Question re "Early Decision"

Postby anthony55 » Mon Sep 26, 2011 6:26 pm

Hello all,

I intend to apply to Penn law school ED this cycle. However, I am also applying to Masters programs, as I am not yet sure which degree I want to pursue (please don't criticize this decision in your response).

Anyway my question is -- if I were admitted to law school ED, does the "you must withdraw all applications + can't attend any other school" policy apply only to law schools? Or would acceptance under law school ED bar me from attending a school's Masters program?

Thx for your help!

If you ED to the law program, you're bound to the law program. I'd imagine if you still wanted to do a Masters at Temple or wherever, you could.

Well I mean a situation in which you wouldn't be able to get a masters simultaneously (i.e. a university not in Philly). Basically like, could breaking the ED agreement (if accepted) lead to the university affecting one's non-law school applications (masters program apps) at other schools?

No. The ED contracts state that you must withdraw applications to all other law schools if accepted.
