REA and EA

If I will apply for REA(restricted early action) at Harvard University, can't I apply for EA(Early action) at any other university at the same time?

Unfortunately, applying REA for Harvard restricts you from applying to any other college's early application, whether it be ED o EA. However, I do believe there are some loopholes around the REA in which you would have to personally check in with Harvard.

I'm basing Yale as an example here, and basically, when u apply to Yale REA, you cna still

1. Apply to a college's non-binding rolling admissions application

2. Apply ED 2 to a school as long as the notification date is after January

3. Apply to any public institution non-binding


I'm not sure if these apply to Harvard as well so you may have to double check on that :-)
