If I am deferred from my first-choice, Early Decision school, should I apply to my second choice EDII? I think I would have a better chance of being accepted at my second choice if I apply ED II.
This dilemma actually came up with one of my students last year. I encouraged her to "hang in there" with her first choice school; after all, she was deferred, not rejected. In her case, she was accepted at and decided to go to a third school, where she is very happy. My point here is that you cannot always "control" the process as much as you would like, but that it will still work out in the end.
