If you know for sure what your first-choice college is, then applying early may have some benefits. First of all, it is increases your chance of getting in. It also means you’re done with the college application process early. You’ll have reduced stress, save time sending multiple applications and be able to start preparing for college early!
Keep in mind though, if you apply early, there may be several rules you need to follow. Research the school’s policy on early admission. You may only be able to apply to one school early – admission and if you don’t attend the school, there may be consequences.
