Why Apply ED?

Each year, thousands of students ask us why they should consider applying Early Decision. Here are some of our reasons:

  1. Competition is keen. Think about this—would you rather be considered for admission as 1 of more than 64,000 applicants or 1 of just over 4,000 applicants?
  2. Applying Early Decision is the ultimate way to demonstrate your interest in BU, which is an opportunity for you to differentiate yourself from the rest of the crowd.
  3. Early Decision applicants receive the same consideration for financial aid as regular decision applicants. Last year, BU awarded $240 million in aid to undergraduates.
