so then the situation would be that people with higher #s are just applying RD because they want a chance at HYS, while those with slightly lower #s are applying ED

I generally wonder what schools get out of ED, other then a (small) impact on yield.
Getting people who really, really want to go to the school? Making sure they don't have time to compare possible scholarship offers at lower schools or similar offers from peer schools? Getting full tuition out of them?
