The pool of students vying for acceptance letters from top US universities grows each year, and Early Action and Early Decision give eager students a chance to apply, and receive decisions, earlier than those in the regular round. After a year of unforeseen obstacles at every turn, many students who opted to apply early to their dream universities are waiting with baited breath for a response.
Applying to a top university early can give students a competitive edge as it indicates to a university that they are that applicant’s ‘first choice’ and that, if applying Early Decision, the applicant is willing to forgo their regular round applications and agree to attend their first choice school as a priority. Further, early round admissions rates are higher than those in the regular round, often giving students an advantage when it comes to beating the highly competitive admissions odds at top US schools.
The college application process can be daunting, from studying for exams, writing personal statements, conducting interviews and everything in between — but Crimson students have an advantage thanks to the dedicated teams that guide them every step of the way. With many polished, well-rounded applications submitted by our students, Crimson is heading confidently into the upcoming weeks as EA and ED notification dates approach.
