Say It Ain't So... No Really, Please Do
« on: September 09, 2007, 03:11:37 PM »
I've been looking at the GW Early Decision option for some time now, and it seems a more attractive option the more I think about it.  I just heard from a friend of a friend, however, that applying ED to GW will result in you not being offered any scholarships from other schools, even if you're rejected at GW.

I have a hard time believing that this is true, but I thought I'd consult the general wisdom of LSD before telling her she's full of *&^%.

Has anyone heard anything along these lines?

GW's ED program now comes with a full scholarship included with acceptance.

Right, that's why I'm so interested in it.  However, this friend of a friend claimed that even if you're rejected from the Early Decision program, you're cut off from scholarships from other schools.

That...doesn't make any sense.

Saw dashrashi's LSN site. Since she seems to use profanity, one could say that HYP does not necessarily mean class or refinement.

Cool.  That's what I figured, but this was one of those things where the consequence is severe enough to make you ask a dumb question just to make sure you're right.

Thanks folks.

You're right, though. It IS really important, so call GW and check, but with a fake name for when they laugh at you.

How would other schools know that you applied to GW ED? 

Seems highly unlikely.
