ED is immoral because it favors the wealthy.
<p>Doesn't ED also favor applicants who have extremely low EFC, are part of under-represented groups, and might enjoy the higher admission rates of ED? </p>
<p>Also, aren't students almost guaranteed a "free look" if the financial package is deemed insufficient? In past discussions on CC, it has become apparent that the strong binding language used by the schools has lost all its bite and leaves the student quite unimpressed by the necessity to play by the rules. </p>
<p>If there is an admission advantage to apply ED, where is the downside for low EFC families, and perhaps families with not so low EFCs that do not mind challenging the system.</p>
