Applying Early Action (Chris, please help!)

I'm a senior now and my school requires all the EA/ED applicants to submit supplementals by 10/1 (Monday), so I don't have much time to decide!

Should I do EA? I heard that it's harder to get in if you do that. And I was wondering if I do regular decision, and I get rejected, is there a chance that I can request another "chance"? What about for EA?

Thanks in advance, guys!

    There's no difference between EA and regular decision, admissions-wise. The admissions requirements are the same. If you're denied admission in the regular cycle -- or the EA cycle, for that matter -- you do have the option of requesting reconsideration; perhaps your senior grades went up, or you re-took the SAT, or something along those lines. We're not going to reconsider you if your academic situation hasn't changed, however, and reconsiderations tend to wind up with a lower priority than applicants who are under first review. Ideally, make it count the first time!

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks, Chris! =) That helped me into making my choice regarding applying EA.
