Early Decision
« on: October 19, 2006, 07:37:30 AM »
Hi,

I know Early Action isn't binding like Early Decision.
Still I was wondering if Early Action requires an applicant
to decide early, upon receiving the school's decision,
whether he/she will enroll for that school, though it's
entirely up to the applicant to choose (unlike biding "Early Decision")?

In other words, can I make my decision and commitment after
February, after I see results from all other law school,
although I am admitted through Early Action procedure at a certain school?

Thanks,

juliemccoy

No. It just means you get a decision sooner which will mean getting accepted sooner or bein deferred into the regular admissions pile. Seat Deposits will be due at the same time-- usually around April 1, and b/c it is non-binding, you are not obligated to attend if accepted.
