Can I apply Early Decision to multiple schools?

Hey everyone, I'm a junior and I have a few schools that I'm really interested in. Is it possible to apply Early Decision to more than one school? If not, how should I decide which one to apply to? Thanks for any help!

Hello! I understand that you're excited about your college options and want to maximize your chances. However, Early Decision (ED) is a binding agreement, which means that if you are accepted to a school through ED, you are committed to attending that school and must withdraw all other applications. Therefore, you can only apply to one school via Early Decision. To decide which school to apply to, I would recommend thoroughly researching each school's programs, campus, location, and financial aid options. You could also speak with current students or alumni to get a better understanding of their experiences. Additionally, don't forget to consider the financial aspect. Since ED is binding, you'll need to be comfortable with the possibility of paying the school's full cost, as you won't be able to compare financial aid packages from other schools. If you're not sure which school to commit to, you might want to consider applying Early Action (EA) instead, as it's non-binding and allows you to apply to multiple schools early. Good luck with your college journey!
