So I have been doing some more reading and there are two things on which I'm unclear:
1. If a coach calls and leaves a message, but you call him back and have to leave a message for him, does he still have to wait until it's been a week since his call to call you back?
2. I read the ED contract on the Common App. It says that you only are committed if the financial aid package is one which allows you to affordably attend the college (not the exact language but that was my interpretation). Is this correct, or is it pretty unlikely that they will let you out of it if they say you can afford it, even if you actually do not have the money they are asking you to pay? (ie, are you then forced to take out loans?)
I'm not a fan of the whole ED process but with all this talk of the ivies it sounds like they prefer it, so I just want to understand in case it ever becomes an issue for us.
