Four years after eliminating their early-action admissions programs, Harvard University and Princeton University have announced plans to restore the policies next fall. Their goal had been to level the playing field for applicants, but few other colleges followed their lead. Both universities plan to use a nonbinding approach. They will tell applicants of their acceptances early, but still give them until the end of the regular admissions process to accept.
