How many Early Decision applications can you submit?

Hey everyone, I'm thinking about applying to a few schools early decision, but I'm not 100% sure about the rules. How many early decision applications am I allowed to submit in one application cycle?

Hey there! You can only submit one Early Decision (ED) application during a single application cycle. Early Decision is a binding commitment, meaning that if you're accepted, you agree to enroll at that college and withdraw all other applications you may have submitted. Since the commitment is binding, it wouldn't be possible to apply to multiple schools under the ED plan. However, you can still apply to other schools via Early Action (EA), which is non-binding, or Regular Decision (RD) alongside your ED application. Just keep in mind that if you're accepted to your ED school, you'll need to withdraw any additional applications and commit to attending it. Good luck with your applications!
