I am currently studying in A2. I am planning to apply ED and RD this year. Can I apply ED and RD to same college?

If I don’t get placement this year and I apply same colleges next year, is there any drawback (like college recognize us and reject??


If you get rejected ED, my high school counselor told me that it is not wise to apply RD to the same college because your application has not changed.

Next year though you can still apply, but I would recommend you to show some growth during that period.


Colleges urge you not to apply to the same college again in the RD, the same year once you have been rejected in the ED. You cannot technically apply ED and RD to same college if you are using the Common Application. Once you submit ED application for that college, it permanently stays on your dashboard as application “Completed.” If you are thinking of removing that college from the dashboard, adding it again to the list and submitting a new application, its not possible.

If you decide to take a gap year and if that is the college you are really interested in, then, work to make visible improvements on your application and apply next year.
