If you have on hand your GPA and, test scores, sign onto either Collegedata.com or, use Naviance. By looking up each college your are interested in on either site, you can see the % of students that were accepted ED over the years. The higher the %, the more likely that applying ED is a good thing but remember, there are many schools that will reflect a % that is equal to students applying regular decision so you really need to look up each school individually to be sure of whether or not ED status impacts your application and if so, by how much?
Keep in mind though that although the ED option is very tempting in order to have an answer before xmas if you got in or not you must, must, must be over the moon with the school. If you only apply just to have the process over, you are going to be accepted and expected to go there when maybe your heart is somewhere else so beware, be thoughtful, be reflective then - be aggressive and go for it!
