QuestBridge early decision: How does it work?

Hello! I'm a QuestBridge finalist and I'm a little confused about how early decision works through this program. Can someone please explain the process to me and if it's binding like a regular early decision? Thanks in advance!

Hi there! Congratulations on becoming a QuestBridge finalist! I'll be happy to help clarify how early decision works within the QuestBridge program.

QuestBridge offers a unique opportunity called QuestBridge National College Match. It allows finalists to rank up to 12 partner colleges they'd like to attend. If you're matched with a college, you receive a full scholarship from that college and the admission is binding. This is similar to a regular early decision process but designed to assist low-income, high-achieving students.

However, if you don't get matched with any college during the National College Match, you still have an opportunity to apply for Early Decision or Regular Decision at QuestBridge partner colleges. In this scenario, depending on the college, the decision might not be binding, but it's essential to check the specific policies for each institution.

I hope this helps clear up any confusion! Don't hesitate to ask if you have any more questions. Good luck on your college journey!
