Applying to other schools after accepting ED

Postby MsWilliams » Mon Aug 23, 2010 6:23 pm

How do schools know if you accepted an ED offer from one school and continue to apply to others?

AdComms with years of experience dealing with ED apps have never thought of this. You have offiially outwitted them. You should do this.

Magic elves use homing pigeons and wizard paper to convey the messages between schools.

Read this:Failure to comply with the terms of this agreement may have consequences. The Washington College of Law reserves the right to report violations of this agreement of any kind to appropriate organizations including, but not limited to, the Law School Admission Council (LSAC), state bar associations, and other law schools.

It just isent something that you do when you ED and are accepted because it could have consequences.

You cant do this. I dont know why you would do this. People ED when they're sure that they want to go to that school. Unless youre ED'ing to a terrible school and hence continuing to apply afterwards would make sense, accepting ED and then applying to other schools makes no sense.

Apply ED if youre sure you want to go to that school. If youre not 100% sure, dont do it. You could potentially do a lot of harm to your application cycle if you go through with this as schools, especially peer schools, do talk to each other.
