I take it you two would vote for applying RD earlier, then?
I imagine that ED, even if not competitive, helps show your interest for NU vis-a-vis someone who didn't ED. That said, if you are a borderline T14 candidate, I think your best bet is to ED elsewhere to improve your odds of getting into at least 1 T14. If you're not a borderline T14 candidate, but unlikely to receive a ton of money from the T14, I'd say do the NU ED to help increase your chances at scholarship/acceptance. That is unless you are a borderline T6 candidate and would prefer a T6 at sticker over a T14 for whatever reason, if that were the case then I'd ED to CCN.
