EA Question

<p>"Are there any restrictions to your Early Action program?</p>

<p>Yes. Students who apply to a binding Early Decision program at another college or university may not apply Early Action to Boston College."</p>

<p>Not that I’m conspiring to do so, but, out of curiosity, how would they know?</p>

<p>They rely on counselors to enforce these rules. In practice, if you have a cooperative counselor they have no way of knowing.</p>


<p>My son applied binding ED (to a different school) last fall. He signed the ED form, my wife & I signed it, and his guidance counselor signed a separate form. To apply binding ED to more than one school, you are asking your parents AND the school to commit fraud. The school has the most to lose, so I'd be very surprised if your guidance counselor would do it. </p>

<p>Some schools (Bucknell, for example) have a second ED round that can work if they're your 2nd choice and your 1st choice rejects or defers you. It's still binding, but you don't apply until you've heard from your 1st choice, so it's legal AND ethical.</p>

<p>I wasn't planning on doing it, I just read that and was like 0.o, how much do they KNOW about me?</p>

<p>well, it just isnt a good idea, and if u get in ED, then u ahve to commit, and then the EA school will know, and admit no1 from ur school forever</p>
