Regular Decision (RD)
For most American Universities on Common App, RD's
deadline
is Dec 31st/January 1st
Notification: On or around April 20th.
Students must respond by the National deadline of May 1st.
Early Action
Non-Binding
Non-Binding means that if you are admitted you are not committed to attend.
Deadlines: Usually are November 1
Notification by US Mail: On or around January 20th
Students must REPLY by National response date: MAY 1st
Benefit of Applying Early Action
You will receive your admission decision sooner, yet not be committed to attend.
If you are deferred during EA, your application will be reviewed again during Regular Decision.

You will get the opportunity to provide additional or new information to strengthen your application.
Why Wouldn't I apply Early Action?
If you are planning to re-take any standardized tests after the November 1st deadline, you may want to consider applying during Regular Decision (RD) period to ensure that the university receives your new scores before they review your application.
Remember that if you are denied during EA, you are not permitted to reapply during the RD round.
Benefit of Applying Regular Decision (RD)
There is no admission preference given to Early Action applications, thus there's no disadvantage to waiting for RD decisions -- colleges do not fill up their spots with EA round
Regular Decision gives you the opportunity to retake standardized testing if need be.
This application plan allows you to include your first semester grades on your transcript
Students must respond by the National deadline of May 1st.
Q and A
Benefit of Applying Early Decision
You will receive your admission decision sooner than everyone else (for good or for worse).

If you are deferred during ED, your application may be reviewed again during Regular Decision.

You will get the opportunity to concentrate on doing well and making sure your final examinations are to the standard of the conditional offer!
Why Wouldn't I apply Early Decision?
If your standardized tests are not to par with the universities' standards, your chances of retaking it and getting scores on time is slim, then you may want to consider applying during Regular Decision (RD) period
Remember that if you are denied during ED, most universities may not allow you to reapply during the RD round.
