The US University Early Admissions eBook

The most competitive US universities offer Early Decision (ED) and Early Action (EA) admissions, which increase students’ chances of admission, give them the opportunity to apply to their top-choice school early, and receive an admissions decision before the regular decision round. Generally, the admission rates in the Early Round are higher than in the Regular round, making this opportunity very attractive for students who have already decided on their dream school.
