And Williams College just admitted nearly 47 percent of next fallís freshmen through early decision. That benefits the college, which has locked in much of the Class of 2021. Maybe it also benefits the students who were admitted and can now calm down, though I wonder how many felt rushed to identify Williams (or Duke or Vanderbilt or Colgate) as their truest love.

My gf went to a "prestigious" northeastern LAC. (Note 1: I'm from the south, and had not heard of it. Note 2: Upside of LACs: she was a virgin when she met me, but now has a good little sex drive; I guess the guys who go to these places are so beta you just *can't* fuck them.)

She tells me -- and I guess I believe her, although it bewilders me -- that for certain kids (100.00000000% of whom are from the northeast), Williams really is their top-choice dream school. Not flame.

it's their realistic top-choice school so it becomes their "dream" school because it has local cache and they know they have no shot elsewhere so they don't dream of top ivies anymore

the local cache makes it seem like something worth aspiring to

not really a matter of lying, just a matter of how human beings reconcile their aspirations with the fact that they can't reach the pinnacle of whatever their desired field is

deep down they'd like to do better but they can't and people need goals so they aspire to what's within reach

some 45-year-old lawyer making $180k would like to be able to buy an aston martin but he's content to aspire to an acura because that's his lot in life

ED unquestionably boosts your chances at getting accepted (or at least it did back then; I have no idea how it is now).

Harvard isn't calling back. There's nothing wrong with pretending you love Duke so you don't have to spend four years at Wake Forest.

Duke >> Vandy >>> Emory >>>>> Tulane >> SMU in that order for Southern schools.

Georgia Tech gets honorable mention if you want to do CS.

I would mention UT but really UT is a shitty state school no matter the stats. Like for premed classes there is such a long list of people wanting in you can end up needing 5 years to graduate just because there was no slot for you in Orgo 1 in one semester. Fuck that.

Binding Early Decision is basically a handout to rich kids whose parents will be able to afford to pay regardless of the financial package. Colleges love it because the more kids paying full sticker or close to it, the better. Kids from more middle class families who legitimately need to compare aid options get fucked. And yes I know that a lot of colleges give 100% grants as aid rather than mixtures of grants/loans, but that's calculated on the basis of "need," which I believe varies from school to school, so that doesn't really cure the issue.

A school historically attended only by the wealthy and connected with a small student body and a loyal alumni base. I have no idea what it is like now, but it was one of those places where everyone was UMC or better and even today when I meet people who went there (not a statically significant sample) they always are doing well and have prestigious jobs (unlike the people I know from UPenn arts and crafts who are bartending or working some shitty $50k a year job in their thirties).
