Does anyone think that it is doable to complete an application for MBA within 4 months? If 2 months are devoted to GMAT, is it realistic to say that another 2 months would suffice to complete essays and the rest of he application?
Considering time constrains, I am thinking about applying to GSB and/or Kellog only, but wanted to check if this is doable.
I hope to score >700 on GMAT after studying during the next two months. The thing that I am more concerned about is having enough time to complete essays for GSB and Kellog. Since I am leaving only 2 months for essays, with the assumtion of having only 20 hours per week to spare, I was wonderding if my plan to apply to two schools by the middle of March is really achievable.
On the same note, has anyone used the MBA consulting agencies to help with the applications? If yes, I would appreciate your opinion on them.
I think you could pull it off in that amount of time. However, if you're applying in the third round, just be aware that a lot of class spots will have filled up by then. So, even if you have a strong application, you might ont do any better than getting waitlisted. We strongly recommend that people apply in the first or second round. It will obviously be too late for you this year, but this "limited space" issue is the reason why we recommend it.
Don't get me wrong... You still can get accepted in the third round. But your odds of success are lower than in the first two rounds.
Thanks Scott, you are right about applying for the 3rd round. I really hope it works out for me this year.
If it does not, I was also thinking about going part-time for it seems like GSB and Kellog have a rolling application process for the part-time program. I just don't want to wait entire year. Do you know if it's possible to switch from part-time to full-time later on?
