<p>I have connections to a few of my top schools who have guaranteed admission to me if I choose to apply early decision. But none of them are my first choice. Do I give up the possibility of my dream school for something pretty good and wonder what would've happened for the rest of my life? Or should I do it the fair way like everyone else? Even if I did get into my first choice with a connection, wouldn't i feel like I'd cheated? </p>
<p>I am very conflicted. </p>
<p>Is it immoral to use connection to get into a school? Is it even practical?
I could use some input.</p>
