Early Action sometimes increases your chances, but not always. Early Decision has more of a chance of increasing chances because it is binding. I'm not sure what schools you're applying to, but in all likelihood, you won't be able to apply to them all early action. Many schools have SCEA, which means you can only apply to one school EA. There is nothing stopping you from sending you applications in early, it's just you'll still hear back at the regular time. Overall, I think you should apply to your top choice Early Action, and if you can apply EA for other ones, then go for it. It might not help, but it definitely won't hurt. Hope this answered your questions. Good luck!
