Early Action Vs. Regular Decision

<p>Do you have a better chance of being accepted into a University and get money (grants, merit, scholarships, etc) from them by applying early action as opposed to Regular Decision. Or is their no difference between the two.</p>

<p>Generally there is no difference between early action and regular decision, and higher EA acceptance rates are generally attributed to a stronger applicant pool in the early round. To be eligible for some scholarships, you have to apply to that school through early action, though obviously there are many scholarships for regular decision applicants too</p>
