Most colleges will accept November SAT subject scores for Early Decision/ Early Action. When you register for the November test, add the name of the ED/EA college to the registration so that they receive the scores electronically from the College Board. My recommendation is for you to also email the scores to the ED/EA colleges as soon as you receive them to insure that they have these results when they are reviewing your application.Some colleges will state categorically that they will not take standardized test scores after the application deadline. It is always prudent to know the deadline posted by your....View More

In most cases, there is little to no advantage in terms of admission to applying Early Action, as it is not binding. The school will know that you may go elsewhere, and are not locked in as with Early Decision, and so your odds of getting in are about the same as in applying Regular Decision. If you are positive that you want a particular school, and you are not concerned about comparing financial aid awards then apply Early Decision, where you are much more likely to get in. If you have any doubt however, or if you need to....View More

What are the advantages of applying EA? Is the acceptance rate higher?

The advantage of applying EA is that you will know early, sometimes in December, usually in January, if you are accepted. This not only can take the stress out of an already stressful year and process, but it can determine whether or not you....View More

When should high school students start looking at colleges?

It’s never too early to start looking at what factors are important to you for your college years. Ask yourself carefully what is important to you: a certain program, geographical region, structured vs. open curriculum, school spirit, fraternity/sorority (Greek) system, and level of pressure. These are just a few aspects that will determine your best-fit college.Although it is very common, we do not recommend looking at colleges solely on the basis of rankings. Rankings are very easily manipulated, and have resulted in real problems in admission, as colleges try to make themselves look as selective as possibly, which gives them....View More

What is the difference between Early Action and Early Decision?

Early Action is a non-binding program, where you apply early, and find out early whether or not you get in. If you do get in, you do not need to go to that particular college or university. In most cases, applying early action does not give you a marked increase in your chances of admission. The benefit is in finding out early (generally from December to January) whether or not you got in. Restrictive Early Action:  Some schools (Stanford, Yale) have a hybrid program called Restrictive Early Action (REA). Under this program, you apply early and find out your results early, but you are not bound to go if admitted.....View More

Do Early Action (EA) and Early Decision Colleges (ED) Colleges accept November SAT Subject test scores?

This all depends on the school you are applying to- I suggest that you look at each schools's website (for the institution you are applying to ED or EA). Furthermore, you can send your November subject test scores to your EA/ED school in the event that they will consider these results.

I'm an Indian student studying class 12 in a CBSE school. I took Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Psychology without Mathematics in my classes 11 and 12. However, I studied Math till Grade 10, have enrolled in an online edX certified Calculus BC course for my senior year and gave the Math 2 SAT subject test in June. I'm targeting HYP and other ivies for an undergraduate course in Biology (PreMed track). Will this affect my chances considering good ECs in STEM and research in cardiovascular medicine that involves a lot of Maths in it? How else can I prove my competency in mathematics? Please let me know your thoughts on this.

Competitive US universities require students to demonstrate a strong competency in mathematics for 3-4 years especially if they want to study sciences. Since you have not taken math  you will need to explain why in your application through counselor LoR. Although your research shows your competency in math, there is no way universities will know its level since you cannot upload your research. So, I suggest you to take the AP Calculus BC course next May (though keep in mind the results come out after you received all your offers). Moreover,  engage yourself in math-related research projects and/or participate in....View More

Please explain difference between single choice early action application and early action. Also, what are the pros and cons of applying in single choice early vs early action?

Early Action programs are non-binding, meaning that students are not obligated to attend if admitted. Students may also apply Early Action at multiple schools, unless they are applying to an institution with a Single Choice or Restrictive Early Action policy, such as Yale, Princeton or Stanford. Neither of these schools have binding admissions. SCEA schools only permit students to apply to state schools that are EA or rolling admissions when they apply to Single Choice or Restrictive EA. Early action schools permit students to apply to many EA schools simultaneously and to state schools with rolling admissions. Early action schools may also permit students to apply to other schools ED, which is binding-
