Am I late for 2013 intake [#permalink] New post 06 Jul 2012, 21:23
I have scheduled my gmat test for 25-aug. For most of the schools, app submisstion for R1 starts in sept. Given the fact that it takes a while to prepare the app, do I still stand a chance to apply for 2013 intake?

How much time does it take to prepare an app?

There is more than one application round. You can apply in R2 (I don't recommend R3).

How many schools you are planning to apply to? Have you already shortlisted your schools? You would need at 3 weeks to prepare your application for one school -this includes essays, recos ( you need to contact your recommenders on time, resume, online application etc. If you have already shortlisted your schools ,get started right now, and devote all of your three months to building your application, you can still consider applying in first round. It all depends how much time you are ready to devote to your application.

Thanks.

I took my GMAT at the end of October last year and had enough time to apply for Round 2 for my schools. You have 2 months on me so unless you have to retake the GMAT you should have ample time.

You have enough time, don't worry.

If you have already shortlisted schools, have a fair idea of the amount of effort involved in writing essays, and have spoken with your recommenders and can get your recommendations in time, then you even have a shot at applying to schools in R1.

If even one of the above conditions is not met, apply in R2.

Whichever way you look at it, you definitely have a shot this year.
