Priority Deadline vs Early Action?

Hey guys, I want to apply to UGA Priority Deadline (its Regular Admission not Early Action).. However, the Priority Deadline and Early Action deadline are on the SAME day.. So, If I apply priority, am I basically applying Early Action? My stats arent THAT great for EA since they only look at GPA and SAT/ACT scores while in Regular Admission they look at the overall High School student..


^ That is the link to the application deadlines.. Go Under deadlines and youll see:
Regular application due: Jan 15
Priority application due : Oct 15
College will notify student of admission : Apr 1
Student must reply to acceptance by : May 1
Housing deposit due : --

Early Decision And Action
Early action application due : Oct 15
College will notify student of early action admission by : Dec 1

So if I apply Priority.. am I applying EA?

    You should go to UGA's site not College Board to determine actual dates. UGA may not have them up for applications for 2014 yet but the CB information you cite is even wrong for last year. If last year is followed, your EA application will be due Oct 15. A separate application for the Foundation Fellowship scholarship (need a 3.8 GPA and at least a 31 ACT) is due by Nov 1 (if you do not file for EA, that is also the priority deadline date to file an application for regular admission if you want to be considered for that scholarship). Your EA application covers any other scholarships. However, if you want to be considered for the honors program there is even a third application for it due by Feb 1.

    From my understanding yes, but contact admissions to confirm.
