The art of waiting to name a First Choice School
I've seen references on CC about the art and science of waiting to choose a first choice school for National Merit Finalists, while waiting for acceptances and scholarship offers to arrive in the Spring, but I haven't seen where the advice is spelled out simply and understandably. What should the NM folks be told at the moment, how long can one remain undecided, is there a time problem with notifying NM while still evaluating offers the end of April? Can someone(s) either provide a link, or start the advice anew? Thanks so much. - John15 replies
