Should I apply ED 1 or ED 2?

heyitsmaddiekheyitsmaddiek 21 replies17 threads Junior Member
So I just recently recieved my first C in a class, but my gpa is still above a 4.0 cumulative. I *was* planning to apply ED 1 to nyu in the fall, but I really don't want that to be the last grades that they see. Should I wait for ED 2, so I the most recent grades I send will look much better (striving for all As)?

    The acceptance rate between ED and RD at NYU is pretty much similar. It means applying ED to NYU doesn't necessarily increase your chance. Plus, there is a chance that many legacy applicants will apply ED, as they are pretty much fixed.(as is the case with Boston College)

    But if you want to apply ED anyway, I believe ED2 sounds better if your transcript doesn't show interim grade (C) you received. Some high schools send the final grades only but some send interim as well. So check with your counselor.

    Sorry, I should have specified, I did get a C as my final grade, but idk if that would be bad if the last semester grades on my report card included a C. Would it be better to wait or would it not really make a difference.

    If your C is not on your grade report, ED2 should be the one but again, NYU does not have a higher ED accept rate. Unless you must go there no matter what, why ED??
