Considering applying Early Action or Early Decision? Learn what each entails and determine

what works best for your child's applications. 

 

Understanding Early Action vs. Early Decision

 

If your child already knows which college he or she wants to attend, applying early may be a good idea. According to Collegeboard.com, students who apply early may have a better chance of acceptance than regular decision applicants. An early application demonstrates strong interest, and admissions officers want students in their schools who want to be there.

 

There are three types of early application plans: Early Decision, Single-Choice Early Action, and Multi-Choice Early Action. Each plan is detailed below to help your family make an informed decision:

 

Early Decision allows students to apply to college earlier than other applicants. Students who are accepted are obligated to enroll. For a look at which schools have the highest Early Decision acceptance numbers, read this USNews.com article.

 

Early Action also gives students the chance to apply early, but those who are accepted do not necessarily have to enroll. Students may choose single-choice or multi-choice early action, the latter of which enables them to apply to other schools under the same plan.
