I'm not familiar with ED. I know it means early decision, but I'm not exactly sure what that means, would you mind explaining it to me? I'm assuming that if I apply to a school for ED, I can only apply to one school for ED? Also, when is early decision? As I've already mentioned, I already have my LSAT and am just trying to decide where to apply to for the Fall of 12 admissions, so I have plenty of time. Thanks.
ED = Early Decision
ED is a binding decision that means if you are accepted to that school, you either have to attend that school or not attend law school at all the following year. In most cases ED gives a tiny boost because schools know you won't turn them down for a peer school because you are committed to going there. In GW's case, ED is harder than regular decision because all of those they accept ED gets a full tuition scholarship + stipend.
WOW. I didn't realize ED was anything like that. So if I applied to ED, chances are I would be rejected, but in the offchance that I was accepted, I would receive a full tuition scholarship and a stipend? With a 170 LSAT, 3.4 GPA, 1 year of Americorps, and some work experience (I'll also have good letters of recommendation), what are my chances of ED at GW?
