I applied to Emory as Early Decision II and I meant to click Regular Decision

=(

Out of desperation I'm here and I made a really big mistake. I applied to Emory as Early Decision II and I meant to click Regular Decision!

I really love Emory but it's not my first choice and now I'm worried. I definitely did print/preview it but I was focusing on my essay and short answer. =( I can't believe I messed up.

What should I do?

    Did you sign the early decision contract?

    If you select EDII, you should've been forced to sign the ED agreement.. why did you? Call Emory tomorrow..

    They give you the contract in a PDF and it says to sign and mail it to them but I haven't touched anything else. -___- Ugh. And I called them just now but they don't open till Monday.

    If you haven't signed the contract, you should be fine... right?
  • FrustratedFishFrustratedFish Registered User Posts: 15 New Member
    I don't know if I'm going to be "fine." =/ I didn't sign the contract and I haven't submitted my supplement.

    I'm not sure what to do. I emailed them already and I plan on calling monday morning but I still feel flustered. I can't think of anything else I can do. =|

    Right. ED is a binding CONTRACT. You have not signed the CONTRACT. It's an unofficial ED application, sure, but it's just that, 100% unofficial. It's official once you sign the contract. Just call Monday.

    Sigh.

    Thanks xSteven.

    You haven't signed the contract, don't worry. I believe an ED application also requires the parent's/guardian to also sign off on it. As long as you haven't signed it, you should be fine. It is important that you follow up ASAP and let them know that you never intended to apply ED but rather intended to apply RD. It's good that you emailed them ASAP--print and keep a hard copy of the email just in case.

    Call as soon as they open and let them know. Everything should be fine. Don't worry.

    When did you submit the application?
  • FrustratedFishFrustratedFish Registered User Posts: 15 New Member
    Thank you nysmile. Thanks everyone.

    It will be okay once I call and get it fixed but I'm mad at myself. I got hasty and even though I know it will get corrected I feel irresponsible.
  • nysmilenysmile Registered User Posts: 5,850 Senior Member
    It's OK. It was just a mistake and has nothing to do with being irresponsible. The fact that you noticed the mistake early and you have all ready emailed them regarding it shows responsibility. It'll be fine. Just make sure you print any email correspondences with them and follow up on Monday with a phone call. They will not hold this against you. Relax and enjoy the rest of the week.

    Did you recently submit the application---within the past couple of days?

    Ummmmm....i would really call the admissions office and just tell them that you made a mistake...or send an email.
    Don't just disregard it
  • FrustratedFishFrustratedFish Registered User Posts: 15 New Member
    @nysmile I just submitted it today.
  • FrustratedFishFrustratedFish Registered User Posts: 15 New Member
    and zfox001, I definitely won't just disregard it. hahahha! I don't know how anyone could do that.

    I have bought airline tickets with wrong date, that's harder to untangle than this ED business. It's very easy to make mistake online. They won't hold you to it. Have a happy New Year.

    Since you didn't sign the contract, all you have to do is call them and switch the application type. No worries!
