Hi everyone -
Question regarding ED1 and ED2 for recruits. My son is being heavily recruited by 2 very selective LAC's (not NESCAC, but close) with 20-25% admit rates. He is on the top of their recruit lists, and they are in contact with him at least once/week. The pre-reads were both positive, both coaches want him up for official visits and one is already set up with one of the schools - just waiting for dates from the other. The coach at the school where he has the visit set up has already asked him if ED1 is a possibility for him. He's in the top 10% of his class, 1430 SAT's, leadership activities, etc. There is one school that has a slight edge over the other and that's really the coach that pushes it over the top (that's the school we're waiting on dates from). If he applies ED1 to one of the schools and ED2 to the other, I'm assuming the likelihood of coach support (such as it is) is much lower with ED2, as would be the likelihood of admittance if something were to fall apart with the ED1 school. Both schools are in the same league, and the coaches definitely know each other, so I'm sure they talk, as well. As an aside, yes, he has back up schools which we're confident he will get in to in case these don't pan out. Thanks!!!!
