Chalk Talk: Types of Applications
There are four main types of college applications, each with their own quirks and advantages. The simplest type is Regular Decision. The deadline for Regular Decision might be as late as March 1st, or sometimes even later. Students simply apply with no special accommodations, though students might have to wait quite a while to receive a response. Rolling applications are applications that can be sent at just about any time. They tend to have a very quick turnaround, usually three weeks. Early Action applications have an early deadline. Because they’re early, fewer other applicants will have applied, which means the pool of competitors is smaller. Restricted Early Action is a rare kind of Early Action application in which the student is only allowed to apply to one school. Once a decision has been made, the student is then free to apply to other schools or accept an offer of admission. Early Decision applications are binding, early applications, which means the student agrees to attend that college if accepted.
