Apply in round 3 or wait for the next admission cycle? [#permalink] New post 24 Oct 2012, 14:55
I would really appreciate any help.

I am currently scoring a 600/620 on CATs. I have been studying for 4-5 months but I've been studying on and off.

I would like to get a 700+. I would assume that I can get there after 6-8 weeks of studying putting me at a GMAT date of December 22nd or so.

I will be late for several round 2 deadlines. Should I wait and apply for the following year or go ahead with a round 3?

Age -30 as of today
Female
8 years of work exp as an engineer in the silicon valley
Undergrad - top 10 engineering school
Part-time masters while working full-time
Post MBA goals - Business development & strategy in tech.

Is my age a disadvantage if I wait?
Target schools - Duke, Kelley, ucla, instead

Thanks a lot

Hello,

Thanks for your question. Your age should not be too much of an issue, even if you wait... (not much you can do about that anyway!). I'd say that there is no harm in applying in R3 -- it is possible (though more difficult) to get in. If you don't make it this year, you can always reapply next year! Better to give yourself the chance!

Good luck,
Mili
