I'm a student in one of the best high schools in China. I really wanted to apply Amherst for ED, because I want at least to have a try with a bigger chance.
But my advisor told me today that most of the students, including me, who also need financial aid, apply in ED will be deferred or even refused, because colleges intend to wait for more suitable students. Is that true? Are those need-blind colleges, such as Amherst, doing the same? Please give me a clue. Thank you very much for your time.
