Is it a good idea to apply for early decision program at Emory if I am looking into

<p>several BS/MD programs? The BS/MD programs do not make up their minds until end of April. I hate to loose my chances to apply early at either Emory or Yale. How did the class of 2010 handle this? What is the trick here?</p>

<p>There is no trick needed.</p>

<p>Early Action does not have a binding commitment, unlike Early Decision (which does have a binding commitment and which you can only do for 1 school). Thus, you can still apply Early Action to Yale and/or Emory as well as apply to BA/MD or BS/MD programs.</p>

<p>But Yale has the single choice EA. Technically, you cam not apply elsewhere before Dec 15th. Am I right? Since Yale does not share EA info with others, can you sneak out?</p>

<p>I think this website explains "Single-Choice Early Action" better:</p>

What are the different types of Early programs?</p>

<p>Single-Choice Early Action restricts applicants from applying to any other school's Early programs; however, these applicants may apply to other schools under the Regular Decision program. Applicants admitted in December under Single-Choice Early Action have until May 1 to decide whether to attend.

<p>Since almost all BA/MD or BS/MD programs are evaluated through Regular Decision (I think Brown's PLME does take Early Decision, though), then you're in the clear.</p>
