Can I Change My Emory Application from Regular Decision to Early Decision?

Question: I applied to Emory University Regular Decision and the more I think about it I realize that I may have wanted to apply Early Decision. The Early Decision II deadline is January 1st. I was wondering if there is any way that I can change my already submitted application from Regular Decision to Early Decision? Thank you for any help you can offer.

You absolutely CAN change your admission plan, and Emory will probably be delighted to hear that you are. Call Emory ASAP and simply tell the person you speak with that you want to do this. Then he or she should give you the next steps. You, a parent/guardian, and your guidance counselor will have to fill out the ED commitment form that you'll find on the Common App Web site. Because you already submitted a Regular Decision application, the Common App may not "let" you send an electronic version of the ED commitment. If that's the case, you can fill out and print the .pdf version that you'll find here: ask your counselor to fax it once it's signed.
