I Need Help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Posted on 06-18-2008
cutie4life

My name is Stacey and I have been a "silent" reader on HBCUCONNECT for awhile. Well I have been thinking about attending Howard University in the fall of '09. I have a few question about Howard University. ~ Is it true that students of COAS must take swimming to graduate? ~ If I apply Early Decision, and get accepted, but Howard doesnt offer me a good Financial Aid package can I go to another college that offers me more money? Or am I obligated to go to Howard? Thank u for the help!! And sorry if these questions have already been asked. Im being lazy and dont want to look through all of the previous posts/threads.. ~S'moores

I dont attend Howard, but I know once you apply and get accepted m, you either choose Howard or go to another school. you have a say where you want to go for the next four years of your life. So no, youre not obligated. Ps. Type in "The real Hu" in google and see what the first thing says. Hampton U c/o 2012

i recommend u apply for early action not early decision b/c early desision is binding and that basically says that "if u get accepted int my institution you have to come and cant decide to go anywhere esle" google the two (early action and early decision) and u'll find out more about what they mean. good luck with Howard!

Thank you so much!!!!!!!!! I will make sure I apply Early ACTION instead of Early DECISION.

Hey cutie4life are you a high school senior? i am and i'm interested in applying to Howard for admission in Fall '09 too. i've been a lurker on HBCUconnect for a while too (made an account maybe about a week ago if that and just posted my first post a few minutes ago) but yeah HBCUlover basically answered your question with early action you don't have to go to that particular school if accepted but if you get accepted under early decision you have to go there. it was confusing for me at first but i remember it now as D.D. - early Decision is Definite. so yeah i plan on applying early action cuz even though Howard is my first choice i would like to keep my options open just in case. and good luck to my fellow prospective Howardite (is that what we would be called? ) deuces
