The question is in the title. If anyone would like to give me some advice I would appreciate it so much. I'm not sure how to tell him I switched my ED2 commitment to another school without coming off as a jerk. Do I explain to him the blunt truth that I switched schools this soon? Or should I come up with a reason like it was a family decision to switch to the RD pool or something? I'm really not sure how to handle this. Thanks for helping if you can
Also, here's my detailed situation if you'd like some insight:
Applied ED1 to a selective NESCAC as a recruited athlete under the impression from the coach that my chances were very high (admissions had given him the okay to recruit me) and it was likely I'd be accepted. Things didn't pan out exactly as i had hoped and I was eventually deferred to ED2. I called the coach a couple times hoping to find an answer to some questions, he promised to talk to admissions and see what's up and call me before the week ended. Never was called back, and he didn't answer my call/voicemail until many weeks later.
I began to doubt my future at this first college, so I switched to ED2 at another selective NESCAC school that I am currently being recruited for. According to the coach at this new NESCAC school it is likely that I will be accepted (I trust him this time, this coach has had 1 on 1 meetings with admissions solely about my application and has proved he's 100% legit). Decisions coming out this monday, and I believe this coach this time.
So today the coach from the first school finally called back and left a voice mail, expressing continued interest but also acknowledged the fact that I switched to regular decision yet still wants me to wait it out. It was too little too late...
