Early action advantages

<p>what are some advantages for applying early other than it raises chance of getting in?</p>

<p>Does EA provide better chance for scholarship?</p>

<p>I think the biggest advantage is that, if accepted, your going to have a much better senior year than if you had to wait until April 1st. Of course if you're rejected your life will suck.</p>

<p>in terms of strategic advantages, your school list might reduce if u get accepted into that EA school.</p>

<p>It is also a good indicator as to your competitive level for RD</p>

it raises chance of getting in


<p>While acceptance rates are often higher for EA than RD, I wouldn't necessarily say that that should be interpreted to mean that the chance of getting in is raised for all EA applicants. The EA pool as a whole tends to have stronger credentials as well as many hooked candidates.</p>
