<p>My dream schools does not have early decision. I am not sure if I can get in. It is a toss-up.
Should I apply ED at my 2nd favorite school (still not a great acceptance rate)?
Should I apply ED with a much higher chance of getting in, but not quite my top (top 5 favorite school)?
Should I apply EA at a few schools?</p>
<p>I would be happy at almost anywhere, but a dream is still a dream. I am just afraid that if I don't get into any of the schools, I will have to regret not doing ED and taking the risk, but if I do ED and get in, I will never know if I should have gone with the dream.
I know what I am leaning towards, but I would like some input.
