Is there a disadvantage to not doing Early Action?

With Early Action, you will receive a decision by December 24.  For those students choosing not to apply Early Action and for all domestic students, we recommend submission of a complete application, including all required materials, by December 1. Admission to Penn State become more competitive as the year progresses which is why we encourage students to submit a completed application prior to the Early Action deadline
