Can you apply to multiple early decision schools?

Hey guys, I'm feeling a bit stressed about the whole college application process. I have a few top-choice schools in mind, and I was wondering if it's possible to apply to more than one school through early decision. Is this allowed? Thanks in advance for any help you can provide!

Hey there! Totally understand the stress you're going through with college applications. To answer your question, early decision is a binding agreement, meaning that if you're accepted, you're committing to attend that school and withdraw all other applications. So, you can't apply to multiple early decision schools at the same time since it would be a violation of the agreement. However, you can apply to one early decision school and also apply to other non-binding early action schools. Early action is non-binding, meaning you will have more time to decide which college to attend if you're accepted. Just make sure to carefully read the application guidelines for each school, as some may have restrictions on applying early action if you're applying early decision elsewhere. Best of luck with your applications, and I hope this helps!
