Early Action. What’s not to like?
At many college you increase your chance of acceptance if you apply early action. Although the amount of admission advantage is not as great as with early decision, there are many colleges where there is a substantial increase.
And, with early action, you have no commitment to the college. Not sure if this is your first choice college? Fine, wait until April. Want to compare financial aid awards? No problem.
To get this advantage, all you have to do is submit your application a little earlier than it would normally be due. As I said, what’s not to like.
I used AcceptEdge to see how my chances looked at the school I applied early to. Hopefully it’ll work out because getting in early would be awesome.

I hope you get in early also! However, as I am sure you know, calculators like AcceptEdge are nothing you can rely on. They can be fun to use but there is no way to really understand chances based on a calculator.
