EA*: Early Action
*Restrictive EA: This is the least common of the admissions options.
ED: Early Decision
Priority Filing Deadline

Until each university releases their admissions information for the class of 2019 we can't know for sure what sort of application timeline they will use: EA, RD, ED, REA. However, this is the process I generally use:
Is there one school you want to go to above all others? Is there a school that you just LOVE and if they said yes, you're willing to pull all of your other applications and not bother finding out if you got in? Is there a school that you would go to even if they don't give you a single dollar in financial aid?
Are there any schools on your list that offer Restrictive Early Action?
