When you apply to college, you may have options as to the way in which you apply:
• Early Action
• Early Decision
• Regular Decision
• Priority Application
• Rolling Admissions
Here, we are going to delve into what “Early Action” means and how it is different from “Early Decision.”
Early action means that you can apply to a school early and receive their response early. So, if you are applying to a school with an early action deadline of November 1st, you will most probably hear from them before the holiday break. You may also not hear back until January. The point is that you will hear back from a school to your early action application sooner than if you had applied regular decision.
