College Applications – “Early” Is The New “Regular”

It is said that “the early bird catches the worm.” However, more often than not, the second mouse gets the cheese!” [Think about it…] As college-bound high school seniors seriously begin work on their college applications, two questions invariably arise: “What is the difference between ‘Early Decision’ and ‘Early Action,’ and should I apply to schools using one or the other or both?” EARLY DECISION = BINDING DECISION “Early Decision,” simply put, is binding.
