Since Early Action is non-binding, we're allowed to apply EA to other schools at the same time as Georgetown. So I was wondering... where are you guys applying EA besides GU?

If I decide not to apply ED somewhere (namely to Columbia), then I will be applying EA to Georgetown, Boston College, and UNC Chapel Hill. What about you, Eclinchy?

Out of principle and for my love of GU, I may not apply to anywhere else EA. I don't know, it may just be my morals. LOL.

I'm not sure yet. It's most likely either BC or nowhere. I don't like the South (I've lived in Virginia for 14 years and that's bad enough...), so UNC's not a very attractive option for me.
I don't know of too many schools that offer EA (which is why I started this thread!), so it's hard for me to say.
I also am considering ED to Columbia... CC and GU are my top two choices.

Eclinchy- we are in the exact same position. I am not sure if I should apply ED to Columbia or EA to Georgetown! They are both my first choices! What do you think you are going to end up doing, and why?
PS- If you don't mind, what are you're stats? Also, what college will you be applying to at Georgetown? (I'm just going for the College).
|By Eclinchy (Eclinchy) on Monday, July 26, 2004 - 12:36 pm: Edit|
I'm going for the College too.
1500 SAT, 770/770/710 SAT2, 3.9 GPA, 28th out of 232 at a fairly competitive public school in Virginia. The scores are good, but not being in the top 10% of my class troubles me. Decent EC's... a lot of acting and debating experience, assistant editor of the newspaper, and captain of the academic team.
I'll probably end up going for G-town. New York and Washington both interest me a lot, but the core curriculum at Columbia's not that interesting to me, and the Political Economics major at Georgetown's College looks really good.
Which one is easier to get into... Columbia College ED or Georgetown College EA?
|By Taru (Taru) on Monday, July 26, 2004 - 02:11 pm: Edit|
I think they're roughly the same. G'town doesn't have that high EA figures (it's around 22%), and Columbia's ED admit rates are, of course, higher than the RD rates (the ED is also in the low twenties). Heh, I totally understand your feelings on the Columbia core!

Folks, you're not allowed to apply early to most other schools.
Even if Georgetown EA does not have restrictions (which I doubt), other schools' early application programs (like Columbia) DO NOT allow you to apply early anywhere else.
Therefore your EA/ED choice should be your #1 choice.
Please note this when you apply.

I'm fairly sure that Georgetown and BC are okay with me applying to both. I will go double check that right now, but I'm pretty sure that schools with non-binding programs are okay with it.

There are only a few schools that use SCEA (Single Choice Early Action). Harvard, Yale, and Stanford are three that I can think of off the top of my head.
You CAN apply to Georgetown and Boston College and others EA without worry. In fact, BC ONLY gives its Presidential Scholarships to those who apply EA. I wrote them (BC) that I thought they lost out on a lot of strong candidates who applied SCEA to the Ivys by only giving the scholarship to EAs. Keep that in mind when you apply.
