UVA ED - Do Other Schools See This?

Postby bnghle234 » Sun Jan 06, 2013 10:38 pm

They gave me a fee waiver, so I am applying ED to UVA. Will other schools be able to see this? Not sure if this was answered on this forum, I tried searching.

I think the consensus is that schools who offer ED (or at least binding ED) share their ED applicant lists with each other.

Why is this relevant unless you're trying to ED to two schools?

I'm gonna be nice and assume the question is, "Will other schools be able to see I ED'd to UVA, think I don't love them, and ding me preemptively?"

No.

I know of at least one CCN school that makes their ED list available to other schools, even if you weren't accepted ED and were released from the contract. So yes schools will be able to see that you EDed elsewhere if they wish.

I was just wondering if other schools will see this and it will reflect negatively on my app for their school.

The one circumstance where I'd be really curious would be if you ED'd to UVA with numbers so good that you're virtually a lock (e.g. so good that you'd almost certainly be accepted for RD, never mind ED). In that case, the other schools have got to know that accepting you isn't going to do anything other than hurt their yield rate.

I don't know how much I really believe in the prevalence of "yield protection", but that seems like the one case where it might legitimately come into play.
