The Case for Early Decision

December 13, 2010

After 36 years in the admissions profession, I’m frustrated that colleges are still doing a poor job of explaining the benefits of early-decision programs in their promotional activities, and that early decision is often portrayed in the news media as being bad for students without much research being done to prove or disprove this theory. Early decision isn’t for everyone, but if a student finds a college that’s a perfect fit, then getting a jump on the competition and available financial aid makes sense.
