        Release Time:2021-11-02 16:08

Imagine that in December, you have received an early application letter from Dream School, and the university application process is officially over. You can enjoy the rest of year in the 12th grade without worrying about college applications anymore. Does it sound wonderful?
Beginning in September each year, ED has reached the final stage of  application journey. Early decision (abbreviated ED) is a binding application for admission. The deadline is usually November of the 12th grade, and the ED admission notice is usually issued in December. If the applicant is admitted by ED, they must enroll, and students need to sign an ED agreement to guarantee their enrollment before applying. Since most of the universities in the United States that use ED applications are ranked within the top 30, and the success rate of the application is much higher than that of the regular application (RD), if you want to hit the world's famous universities, you must seize the early application The stage!
As Pegasus students who have a clear goal to pursue in the "dream school", there are frequent good news in the early application stage every year! In the early application stage in previous years, these students have already received offers from top prestigious schools.

TIPS: What is ED?
ED is the abbreviation of Early Decision, and it is a way to apply to American universities early. ED is relatively common in private universities, but there are also some public universities that provide applicants with such an option. The ED application deadline is generally from mid-October to mid-November, and the results will be received from mid-November to December.
Unlike ordinary applications, a student can only choose one school to apply for ED. If admitted, he can only accept an offer to study in that school and withdraw the application that has already been submitted to other schools. Therefore, the ED application is most suitable only when the student has a clear first choice "dream school" goal, and the application success rate is also higher than that of ordinary applications.
Although ED's chances of applying to TOP30 schools are greater, the conditions that students need to meet are also very demanding. While students' standardized scores must be strong and competitive, GPA must be among the best, and extracurricular activities must be sufficient. So why Can Pegasus students achieve good results in the early application over the years?
