How can I get out of early decision?

EARLY DECISION IS LEGALLY BINDING. There is no real way to get out except if you truly can't afford to go. Then perhaps you would go to a community college or lower level state university as no other private college will allow you to accept once they know you got into EARLY DECISION college.
