Reading the Questbridge/Stanford application materials, it explicitly states that Finalist, both those that rank Stanford and those that DON"T rank Stanford can NOT apply Early Action to Stanford.
My son was planning on doing the QB application, but not ranking ANY schools. Thereby he would be free to apply EA to Stanford.
I assume that what is ACTUALLY meant by the QB/Stanford materials is that whether you rank Stanford or not, if you rank anyone, you may not apply EA to Stanford, OR that if you are using the QB connection, under no circumstances should you select the EA box on the common app.
Does anyone know the definitive word on this??
