If I get rejected from Early Action, can I still apply Regular Decision?

If I apply Early Action to a school and don't get accepted, can I reapply to the same school through Regular Decision? Or is that not possible? I'm particularly worried about my top choices, so I want to know if there's a second chance if I don't get in through EA. Thanks for your help!

Hey there! It's understandable that you're curious about this. Generally, if you apply Early Action and get rejected, you won't be able to apply again through Regular Decision for the same admissions cycle. However, if you're deferred from Early Action - meaning your application is moved into the regular applicant pool for further consideration - it could still be reviewed during the Regular Decision process. Keep in mind that policies may vary across different institutions, so it's always a good idea to double-check with your top-choice schools to understand their specific rules and requirements. Good luck with your applications!
