MIT
CalTech

(i'm sure there are more, but those are the only ones i know of)

Stanford's is a non-binding EA, but you can only apply EA to stanford

There are many, many schools with unrestricted EA - really too many to list. Some schools even give a choice between EA and ED - a great option.
Best bet: draw up a list of schools that interest you and check on their admissions website to see if they offer unrestricted EA.

Isn't unrestricted EA the same as "rolling admissions" if you apply early? If that's the case, there are TONS of schools that do that.

i think he/she talks about EA that is not SCEA(sing choice EA)..
Stanford is SCEA and many top school have -only- SCEA
(binding EA is ED..)

for georgetown you cant apply anywhere ED so that fails to be unrestricted


keep it going

By Neolinski (Neolinski) on Sunday, August 15, 2004 - 07:52 pm: Edit

i think we should clarify this LIST somewhat.

ONE -- fully unrestricted EA (free to apply any other EA or ED)
MIT
CalTech
Chicago
Tulane

TWO -- EA that let students to apply any other EA, but ED.
Georgetown

THREE -- interim decision
Rice

this list can be huge if we add ALL schools, but let's keep it to really good / top schools in the nation. (of course there isnt exact definition of top school though)

p.s : ididnt include Rolling Admission, since only public / state schools tend to do this.

Neolinski, you forgot Boston College under fully unrestricted EA. I'd also like to add (as someone else did previously) Notre Dame and University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill.

And I highly doubt someone will apply to Georgetown and MIT at the same time. ;)

By Neolinski (Neolinski) on Monday, August 16, 2004 - 04:43 pm: Edit

ONE -- fully unrestricted EA (free to apply any other EA or ED)
MIT , CalTech , Chicago , Tulane , Boston College
Notre Dame , University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill.

TWO -- EA that let students to apply any other EA, but ED.
Georgetown

THREE -- interim decision
Rice

it's kinda stupid question, but is it possible to apply one ED and apply to another this unrestricted EA schools?
if so, which schools allow this?

By Twiggy (Twiggy) on Monday, August 16, 2004 - 05:21 pm: Edit

...is it possible to apply one ED and apply to another this unrestricted EA schools?

I don't think you can. If you're applying ED somewhere, then you are saying that a certain school is your first and only choice; if they accept you, there would be very little that would keep you from going there.

By Kousuke (Kousuke) on Monday, August 16, 2004 - 05:55 pm: Edit

neolinski, do you mean apply ED somewhere and apply a school with unristricted EA? for example, ED to amherst, and EA to MIT/boston c/caltech/rice?(my personal case)
yes, you can but if your ED schools accept you you have to decline all of your EA offers. its a good idea because it lets you recieve multiple decisions in december, giving you a higher chance of an acceptance. so even if you do get rejected by your ED school, youll find out about your EA schools at the same time and hopefully youll get into one of them. so you wont be so depressed, knowing that you got in SOMEWHERE. so usually your EA school should be more of a fall back school that you can use as a confidence boost if you get rejected from your ED choice. unfortunately ill be apply to schools EA that i have a smaller chance of getting into than my ED choice. so ill be either thrilled about an ED acceptance, or depressed because of 4 rejections before most people have even sent in their applications.

By Neolinski (Neolinski) on Tuesday, August 17, 2004 - 08:05 pm: Edit

i exactly want to do what Kousuke said. I want to ED to Columbia SEAS and about 2~3 of reach-match-safety unrestircted EA schools.

i really want to finish my admission by december -0-
any comments? or any SEAS ED applicants planing to do the same?
