If you've already been looking at which universities you want to apply to, you'll notice at least two deadlines. One says regular decision, the other says early decision (this is different from early admission). Early decision means you apply to a university early (before the regular deadline) and get a decision early. Here are a few guidelines to keep in mind if you are considering early decision:
Our recommendation is to pick one stretch (top) school from your shortlist and apply early decision. If you're organized, there are some great benefits to applying early decision:
These benefits are huge and we always recommend to students working with us for the whole application process that they select one university to apply to early decision. It makes everything so much easier and gives you time to adjust if there are any problems (for example, one of the teachers you asked to write a recommendation tells you "the dog ate her homework.")
If you're going to apply Early Decision, you should have already taken the SAT, SAT Subject Tests, and gotten (or be getting) your recommendations by the time you read this post.
