Does University of Richmond offer early action?
Early Action (EA) is our non-binding, early application plan. Under our Early Action plan, students apply early and receive an admission decision early, but are not committed to enroll if admitted. Furthermore, applicants are permitted to submit early round applications to other institutions.
Are you more likely to get into a school with early action?
Early action programs do not increase your child’s odds of getting into colleges. They simply allow your child to find out sooner whether or not they’ve gotten in. Moreover, if your child is not accepted early action, their application will likely get deferred to the regular decision pool and get evaluated once more.
Is early action easier to get into?
