It’s almost the weekend, and we know you want to set aside those business school applications, take a break, and have some fun. So every Friday we make it our mission to give you a reason not to panic.
Today’s topic: No time to apply 1st Round.
So the earliest among the 1st Round deadlines are coming up in little more than a month, and maybe you’re stressed out, wondering if you have time to apply, considering maybe you haven’t even taken the GMAT. And yet, you’ve been told that your chances of acceptance are better first round… What to do?
Time after time, admissions committees will emphasize that there is no real advantage to applying Round 1. Yes, Round 3 is risky, but Round 2 is absolutely fine and really no different from Round 1.
And remember, the best time to apply is always when you’re ready. Give yourself the time you need to prepare the best application possible. Because no matter what anybody says, that’s what’s going to give you the best odds of getting into the your target schools.
