First time poster, been lurking for awhile.
I intend to apply in the next cycle. I am fairly certain that I want to attend one school in particular, but I still have the "what-ifs" in the back of my mind regarding other schools.
I have heard that it may be easier to get into a school through ED (and have also heard this theory refuted) and I have also heard that applying ED can hurt chances at reasonable financial aid (since you're obligated to attend the school no matter what). What, in your opinion, are the pros and cons of applying ED?
