[quote="Inquisitive22"]Hi everyone. New to this website outside of researching for MBA Q/A's. I recently received admission from ASU with a 50% scholarship, but was given a hard deposit deadline of December 6. Unfortunately, 3 other schools I applied to have decision deadlines between Dec. 9-18 (Yale, Cornell, and Dartmouth). I am in love with Tuck and Johnson and really want to get a decision given that and all the effort/time I put in on applications and visits. Does anyone have insight on the etiquette of asking for early admissions decisions from the other schools? I don't want to offend anyone or hurt my chances at all. Additionally, if requesting an early decision should I mention that I already have one admit and scholarship offer? Thanks for the help.
Also, not sure about my chances of admission at the other programs, my profile is: GRE-162V,158Q, MPA degree from Maxwell (#1-ranked school) and 8 years experience, mostly in legislative research/government - pursuing investment track with eye on investment officer or portfolio mgr for government pension/investment funds.[/quote
Thanks for writing here.
Your situation is interesting, but not rare at all.
Every school knows that every student keeps his option open and applies to more than one schools.
First, yes, you can write to the schools about the dilemma you are in. Second and utmost important, it depends how you write the letter. You must be very courteous and mention that the school (you are writing) is your first choice, but you are in a dillema and you need their support to expedite the review.
I have helped someone to do the same (not in the same schools you mentioned), and the school reviewed his application even before the deadline started (the case was very complicated though)
Thanks and good luck
