Early Decision: Back in Vogue

Here’s an interesting article about Early Decision from today’s edition of Inside Higher Ed.  I’ve written before about the role of “demonstrated interest” in the admissions process and always advise my clients that if they’re unequivocally sure they want to attend a particular college, there is no better way to convey this conviction than to apply Early Decision.  Early Decision and Early Action programs are making a comeback, after receiving some negative press in the past (Harvard, for example, eliminated its Early Action program in September 2006, rationalizing that the college admissions process had become too complex and stressful, and that Early Decision/Early Action primarly helps students who are already advantaged).  So for all of you who are toiling away on your Early Decision applications, have faith – your hard work might pay off!
