I'm currently a senior in high school and I would absolutely love to go to Sarah Lawrence.
However, as much as I want to go I'm extremely conflicted on applying early decision versus regular decision. Because Sarah Lawrence is basically the most expensive school in the country, I feel applying early decision will likely leave me having to pay the full price. The only reason I'm so eager to apply early decision is to only express how much I want to go. What should I do?

Also if anyone knows, what do you think is the average GPA most students have at the school?

    If SLC is your dream school (it was our D1's second choice) and you don't care about comparing financial aid offers, go ahead and apply ED2. If you apply for FA and are accepted, they'll make you an offer by Feb. 15, and you have two weeks to decide if you want to accept it (i.e., was it enough to allow attendance). If not, you :( decline and apply RD elsewhere. Your FA is determined by your need (calculated by the school), not whether you apply ED or RD.
