This week’s podcast discusses the concept of early decision with law school applications. Some schools offer applicants the option to “apply early” to schools, which can be beneficial to students seeking entrance to a particular school. Early decision applicants often have an earlier deadline for their application, and will obtain their admissions decision sooner. This allows applicants to know far in advance if they have been admitted to the school of their choice. However, most early decisions are also binding, which require the student to attend the program they were admitted to, and to withdraw all applications with other schools.
