I just want to know if i should apply early decision or regular decision. I know that early decision has a 25.3% acceptance rate to the regular decisions which is only 12.6%. Although 888 of the 4527 applicants were deferred and later accepted which would bring the early admissions up to 45%. The problem is that i heard that the early applicants are much more qualified than those of regular decision. So i ask you do i have a nonexistent/reach/decent/good/great chance of getting accepted, and if so should i apply for early or regular decision?

I didn't take many AP courses because my school does not offer many, i took as many as i could fit into my schedule. AP classes are not available till 11th grade and even then for only a few classes.
The rest of my classes are almost all honors except for a couple regents courses.
Lacrosse (4 years) varsity
Swimming (3 years) varsity

200 hours at a nursing home

I am a very dedicated lacrosse player, and was team captain for sophomore and senior year. I was the swimming captain both junior and senior years. Some of my grades went down a little because i was averaging 3-4 hours a day on either swimming or lacrosse
I also attend one of the top schools in NY... so its quite competitive
