    I don't do chances but font apply ED if you aren't sure of finances.

    I presume this should be “against” - rather different meaning!

    If it is clearly your first choice then ED will be a boost to admission. Imo your stats are in the kind of range that will benefit. If the financial package doesn’t meet your need, you will be able to back out of an offer. However, if you will need or want to compare financial packages among colleges before deciding then ED won’t work. Make sure you have properly discussed the finances and implications with your parents and GC if you do decide to apply ED.

    I have way higher stats than you and I didn't get accepted. They care more about GPA.

    Admissions is holistic. They don’t only care about stats.

    @redpanda01 , did you apply ED or RD?
