How many days will I have to decide whether to go to Whitman for ED if financial aid is not enough?

I am just wondering about this as it does not really clearly state on its website (I haven't been admitted yet) Though Whitman is my first choice, I still think that there are better chances of financial aid out there.

Also, I feel Whitman is a bit isolated and I am not sure about the chance of internship or job (I think my major is gonna be Economics & Mathematics) Would you mind reviewing?

    I have no idea, but it doesn't sound like you need to ED. If finances are an issue, and if you're interested in entertaining other offers, EA is probably the best choice.

    It sounds like you are not sure you want to go to Whitman. If the FA offered is as projected on their NPC, you are expected to accept their offer and withdraw all others.

    If you are uncomfortable committing, contact them now and change your app to RD. That will at least give you a chance to compare offers and keep Whitman in the running.
