early action deadline: is it worth it to rush?

is it worth it to try and get everything in for my early action application to chicago or just wait and take my time to apply regular decision? at this point i haven’t gotten my teacher recommendations or transcripts yet and i could probably get everthing this week but i doubt they’d be in on time. would it reflect negatively on me if my supplementary material was sent a few days late?

<p>If you have good stats, don't worry about applying EA. If you think you can definitely get in without EA then don't rush.</p>

<p>dont ea... its better if you send a good app than a sloppy one</p>
