Second ED if rejected after ED at UVA?

Postby kkrunner » Wed Jun 24, 2015 3:49 pm

UVA states that a decision for ED applications will be made within 15 days. If I applied ED at UVA the day applications open and get rejected, would it be possible to apply ED to another school?

Yes


Okay, thanks. Is there any way that the second school would be able to see that they were my second ED app?

No. So yes, you can ED UVA and then ED GULC (guessing that's your plan).

If you ED, it's very likely you will end up paying 250K or more for your legal education.

ETA: Not worth it.

Either GULC or UGA. SC resident, so the latter would be my top (affordable) regional school.

If UVA isn't that big of a reach for you there is no reason to ED UGA. Don't ED Georgetown.

UVA will definitely be a stretch. I'm a splitter, so that's why I plan on applying early decision to either school.

I think if you're competitive-ish for UVA, you could get significant $ at UGA (http://georgia.lawschoolnumbers.com/app ... cholarship)

I'm a splitter and I got surprisingly good money and acceptances from some schools, and rejections from other schools that I would have considered safeties. It's unpredictable, which is why you should apply broadly unless you have some kind of pressing need to know where you'll be 9+ months in advance.

Thanks for the link! Probably a dumb question, but is the scholarship $ amount list annual or just a total amount?
