I am an ED II applicant and my stats are: 1460 CR+M; 2180 SAT (superscore), top 6% (39/618) ranked GPA, and I applied for financial aid. Yet, after reading through some threads, in particular one that said the applicant was off the waitlist after he withdrew his request for financial aid, I started to wonder if I shall do the same.
Emory is my number one choice. Even if I don't get financial aid, my parents will support me. So should I take this step?
Also, is there any deferral for ED II applicants this year? Or is it a straight acceptance/rejection?
