Worth Applying Early Decision?
Answered

I am applying to Trinity University. It is my top choice school and I really want to go there. However, it is fairly selective (34% acceptance rate) and my chances are currently 44%. However if I apply ED, my chances go up to 55%. As stated before, I really like Trinity and really want to go there. However it's very expensive and I'm not sure if my family can afford it. If I apply ED, there is a chance that I won't be able to afford to attend, but my chances of getting in are a lot higher. Should I apply early decision?

If Trinity U. is your #1 choice and you have a 55% chance of getting in ED, then I would apply to ED because then you see if you are awarded 1 or 20 of the full-ride scholarships or the other merit-based scholarships.

Trinity Tower Scholarship Murchison Scholars and other top applicants will be invited to compete for a full-tuition scholarship at the Trinity Tower Scholars Day competition.

Trinity Tower Scholars Day attendees will compete for one of up to 20 full-tuition scholarships.To be considered for this award, your application for admission must be submitted under an ED I or EA application plan.
