What is downside of applying for too many schools in Early Action?

Ok. I saw OP was edited and such a huge leap in logic seemed very odd. I guess it just was.

The edit was simply to correct spelling. OP never mentioned REA.

I pushed both sons to apply EA if applicable. Get them done and out of the way. Also, some schools decide merit early. Once it’s gone you’re out of luck.

It also helps narrow the list of visits or allows you to plan better. Finding out in March can make planning harder.

S20 applied EA and was deferred. He got in RD to the school he attends.
