More likely, they want to be as secure in their target medians as possible by locking in enough people at or above both their target medians through ED. When you consider that every school needs to have some people below both medians (e.g. URMs), the buffer of people at or above both medians needs to be pretty sizable. I'm actually pretty pessimistic about a moderate splitter's chances at NU ED. A 3.8/170 might have a better shot than 3.7/180.
I agree, 3.8/170 has a better shot than 3.7/180, but that's exactly my argument. The 3.7/180 is more CCN-secure than the 3.8/170. But either way, neither of those applicants are likely to apply NU ED because they will want to keep CCN open. NU Is not promoting the ED scholly hardly at all, so I think it will be a lot of people who are borderline at best at CCN.
