Early Decision

Is it easier to get accepted via ED rather than Regular? Anyone know the percentages? Also, do you know if they look at the Writing portion of the SAT or just the Math and Verbal?

Thanks.

    It is always easier to get in ED, and ED1 is easier than EDII. For now it is just Math and Critical Reading that they look at. For more info, check out the Institutional Research link on the FAQ page of the Trinity website.

    why's EDI easier than EDII? They're both ED...

    'cause ED I - you're really saying you want in. ED II you may have already not gotten in at another ED.

    No, you can't do EDII if you've been accepted EDI somewhere else. But EDI is when the majority of the ED spots are allocated, usually less than 25% are kept open for EDII. Also, by EDII the school has seen a larger part of the RD applicant pool, and has a good sense of the strength of those candidates, so it may not feel the need to take as many EDII.

    I think you misunderstood islandgirl. I was trying to say that if you do an EDII, you may have already done an EDI somewhere else and been turned down. In other words, EDI shows more of an interest than EDII, in addition to the details you point out.

    Sorry chaucer's - yes, you are right. But from the school's perspective, once you apply ED you are committed to it if accepted, so it should not affect the school's perception of your candidacy.
