    Apply ED and you'll have an excellent chance. If you do not apply ED, all bets are off.

    agree, the reason is that with ED, you will have better chance to get admitted and avail of financial aid. in class 2022, 385 of the 829 total enrolled students were from ED.

    You have excellent stats, and if you apply RD they will send you an email asking, "Are you are SURE you don't want to apply ED?"

    You have excellent stats. Colgate has both ED 1 and ED 2 so you always have those options.

    You are fully qualified. On this basis, your odds for Colgate would be good -- perhaps greater than 60%, even RD.

    Based on your interest in economics, you may also want to consider other top schools for this field such as Williams, Middlebury and Hamilton.
