Question about Early Decision...

Let's say if I apply for ED (Cal Poly SLO is pretty much my dream school)

Does it bind me while the application is under review? Or can I still apply to other colleges?

Thank you!

    You can still apply to other colleges while you are waiting for the ED decision but once you are accepted, you should notify the other colleges that you will be removing your application from their consideration.

    You can and should apply to others in case you're rejected in ED. If you are rejected, you will still be rolled into the RD pool and could still be admitted. Good luck.
