Can I apply early decision to more than one college?

Hey everyone, I've heard some conflicting information about early decision applications. I have two top-choice schools, and I'm wondering if I can apply early decision to both of them. Is this allowed? What are the consequences if I do? Thanks for any help you can provide!

Hey there! I understand your confusion about early decision applications, as the process can be a bit complex. To answer your question, you can only apply early decision to one college. Early decision is a binding agreement, meaning if you are accepted, you are committed to attend that school and must withdraw all other applications. Applying to two schools early decision would put you in a difficult situation if you were accepted at both, as you'd be violating the agreement with one of them. Instead, you might consider applying early action to one or both of your top-choice schools if they offer it. Early action is non-binding, and you can apply to multiple schools without committing to any of them. Just make sure to double-check the policies of each school before submitting your applications. Good luck with your college search!
