When preparing for college, almost everyone knows the importance of studying for, taking, and scoring well on the ACT or SAT. However, the optional writing section or essays remain a mystery for many. Is it required? Why does it matter? Should I take it?
In a nutshell, early action applications come with many of the same benefits that early decision plans do, but without all of the baggage. As a refresher, those benefits are: receiving your admissions decision early (generally by or around Christmas time), having a higher chance of being admitted, and demonstrating an interest in a college.
