Is there any sense in me applying SCEA to Yale?
Yale has come out as a clear first choice to me in the college admissions process, but I'm not sure if there's any sense in me earlying to Yale. I've heard that there's no actual advantage in SCEA, however (especially because tougher competition), and I may be able to strengthen my GPA first semester next year (I have around a 3.8 UW with a significant upward trend; perhaps I can raise this first semester senior year, but not sure how significant this would be- thoughts?). The rest of the schools on my list right now are mostly ED schools, and since I've decided not to ED, this decision is getting pretty tough! Thank you all in advance for your advice!
