Academic learnings for make benefit glorious institution of non-binding early action

Top administrators at Chicago actively choose to keep early action, but even though I've actually seen the data they are talking about, I still couldn't understand any of the quotes in that article. Here is my take on it: basically, a higher percentage of early action candidates apply for financial aid than regular notification candidates, meaning that early action candidates have more financial need than regular candidates in our pool. And they are getting the same packages as regular candidates, besides still having the opportunity to compare packages across institutions. We've done the research on our own pools of candidates, and we've decided that we can keep early action.
