Upcoming senior... do you guys recommended sending apps early action or not? Regardless still think it would be better to get that shit done early and would it increase my chances of admittance to colleges?
got to be careful cause they're mostly binding, meaning that if you get accepted, you have to go there. Only advice I can give you, pick some obscure time to turn it in. No chance of crashing or problems when I submitted at like 3 or 4 AM.
EA is not binding, ED is.
I also doubt collegeboard would crash. Number of applicants a year is around the same give or take a few so I'm sure their servers can take the load.
To ethunnn, just submit your stuff when you feel confident it's the best you can do. Many colleges have a regular deadline like in January or even later sometimes but I submitted all my stuff by the EA/ED deadline even if I wasn;t doing EA/ED and most of the colleges sent back letters before their regular deadline date.
