Early action application limits?

Hi! I'm planning on applying to college through early action, but I'm not sure how many schools I can apply to. Is there a maximum number of early action applications I can submit? Thanks for any help!

Hello! It's great to see you're considering applying through early action. The good news is that there's no strict limit to the number of schools you can apply via non-restrictive early action. However, certain schools hold restrictive early action (REA) or single-choice early action (SCEA) policies, which limit you to applying to only one private college early. In these cases, you'll need to choose just one REA or SCEA school for early application, but you can still apply to other non-restrictive early action public schools.

When deciding how many early action applications to submit, it's essential to consider both the quality of your applications and the feasibility of handling the workload. It's more important to present strong and well-thought-out applications to a few schools rather than overwhelming yourself with numerous applications that might not be up to par.

Remember to double-check each school's early action policies and deadlines, as they may vary. Best of luck with your applications!
