Early Action - to apply or not !!!

The question that is bothering me for some time now is whether to apply in early action round? Does applying in EA increases one's chances of getting in? But, then with a binding to withdraw applications from all other schools can prevent one from getting into his/her dream school. Also, are Ad-coms more generous during EA when it comes to shelling out schols??

I have 2 schools on my radar that have EA with a binding. But both these schools are not my dream school {they are pretty close to my dream school but not no.1 }.

Need big time help on this one...

I am sure Duke is one of them. Yeah that is a problem even I am thinking off. EA is certainly worth it . It shows that you have researched about the school and consider it as your top most choice , which portrays your passion for the school. Having said that , if you think you cant come out as one who knows about the school , you shouldn't go for EA ...

@Prasad -- i have researched the schools under consideration and i am sure that i would fit in nicely in both of them...but it's got something to do with psyche :)

Ferrari and lamborghini both are awesome cars...but my dream car is lamborghini...even if i am certain of getting a Ferrari i would want to give a shot to Lamborghini ... i hope that reveals my dilema!!!

Prasad,

If it's not your dream school -- if you are not committed to this program -- I would not recommend applying EA.

Best,
Linda

I won't mention that picking the right school is probably one of the most important decisions you've ever made but I will say it's something you should spend some time thinking about.
