<p>Should I apply ED to Wharton? Or my chances too slim and I should apply ED to a little bit easier school to get into?</p>

<p>If Wharton's your first choice, then I'd say definitely go ED. I'd say you're as good an applicant as any and you'd most likely have at least a decent shot. Even if you get deferred, you'll still probably have a reasonable shot Regular Decision there, and any of the other schools as well.</p>

<p>Any chance you wanna respond to my thread?

<p>I'd say with a great degree of certainty he is a good match at Duke, Nortwestern, and Cornell. I think his best shot here would be Penn ED as jgorman suggested however he may not want to limit his options IF it is not his clear-cut frontrunner. I think the next school with the best shot for him is Dartmouth. Brown seems to be the one Ivy that most closely resembles HYPSM for their admission selectivity and unpredictable nature. Princeton will be his biggest reach, just like it is for everyone. Hopefully, he has some good A- schools on his list also, just in case....</p>

<p>so do you think wharton ed is a good decision if its my first choice?</p>

<p>how about northwestern mmss?</p>
