ED Crisis

<p>I don't know if this problem is shared by other rising seniors about to apply to college, but it is one of the harder issues I have to resolve before I can begin my applications. My grades aren't spectacular, neither are my SAT scores for that matter. So I am unsure whether I should ED to my truly #1 college, that I really have a <5% chance of attending or if I should ED to a college lower on my list, but by EDing my chance to this college would be much more significant than my #1.</p>

<p>Hope this dilemma makes sense, and I hope some of you will be able to provide some advice on how to tackle this issue?</p>

<p>ED the college you are 100% sure you want to go to if you are accepted. If a college is lower on your list, then you should be fine getting in EA or RD. Save the ED decision for the most difficult school to get into if that, in fact, is your #1 choice.</p>
