I heard that applying ED = less financial aid.
A) iS this true?
B) Does this also apply in the sense that EDers are less likely to be selected for such things as Rabi scholars?
Thanx so much.

At the info session, the admissions officer said the financial aid will meet the demonstrated need, regardless of ED or RD. However, she warned that Columbia's perception of demonstrated need and the applicant's perception of it are not always the same.

Another factor to consider, perhaps (and this applies to all schools, not just Columbia), is that financial aid packages may consist heavily of loans rather than grants and still be called "meeting the need." I have no idea if ED or RD affects the makeup of the financial aid package.

what about whether it will decrease one's chance of being selected as a scholar?

I personally don't know anyone accepted ED to be selected as a scholar. The only people I know are RD.

I remember seeing several scholars on this board when ED decisions were announced.
