Looking for a way to boost admission odds without obligating yourself to attend? Here's a list of colleges with early action admission rates that are at least 50% higher than their regular decision admission rates.
Unlike Early Decision, Early Action is non-binding, so it nearly always works to your advantage. And as the list shows, this advantage can be meaningful if you're a competitive applicant...all for simply applying 45-60 days earlier than normal.
With most early action deadlines occuring in early November, the time is now to take a closer look.
