Is Early Decision II binding?

Hey guys, I'm really interested in applying Early Decision II to a college, but I'm not sure if it's binding like Early Decision I. Does anyone know if Early Decision II has the same binding agreement, or is it more flexible?

Yes, Early Decision II is binding just like Early Decision I. The main difference between the two is the application deadline, which is typically later for Early Decision II than Early Decision I. This gives students more time to improve their application before submitting it for consideration.

However, please note that a binding agreement means that you are committing to attend the college if accepted, so be sure you're comfortable with that arrangement before applying. If you're uncertain, consider applying through a non-binding alternative such as Regular Decision or Early Action (if offered by the college). Good luck with your college application process!
