What is Early Decision II at NYU?

Hi everyone! I was doing some research on NYU's application options and I came across Early Decision II. What exactly is it and how does it differ from regular Early Decision? Thanks for any information!

Hello and great question! Early Decision II (ED II) at NYU is similar to the Regular Early Decision (ED I) option, but the key difference is the timing. ED I deadlines are typically in early November, while ED II deadlines are usually in early January. Both options are binding, meaning that if you are accepted through either Early Decision I or II, you are committed to attending NYU and must withdraw applications from other schools.

One advantage of ED II is that it gives students more time to improve their application, whether that be through first-semester senior grades, additional test scores, or further development of extracurricular accomplishments. Keep in mind, applying ED II still demonstrates a strong interest in NYU, which can be a factor in the admissions process, but remember that the commitment is just as binding as ED I. Best of luck with your application!
