<p>I have a friend who is planning on applying for Cornell, NYU, and JHU this fall. All of them are great schools with HIGH ED ADMIT RATES.
Therefore, he claims that he plans on applying for all of them ED, regardless of the "binding" rules to increase his chances of getting in. I understand that this is highly unethical, however, if there are no consequences for not attending ED accepted schools, wouldn't this be strategic?</p>
<p>*note: I am afraid that some of you may suspect ME as the "friend" I mentioned about. Please refrain from thinking that way, since I have already set myself to go to Baylor (with no second thoughts). Just like you guys, I'm also upset with my "friend".</p>
