I am planning to take the GMAT on 22nd September. Will i have sufficient time after that to meet the
Fall 2010 Application Deadline & Decision Schedule for the major Universities since i need to take TOEFL also.
or maybe i should take the GMAT a bit earlier. Most of the univs have their Round One app date as 20th Oct 2009.
Any suggestions please.
1. Take TOEFL First. TOEFL is easier and will give you confidence with the test, test center, and overall experience
2. Which schools are you applying to? I assume R1?
See this list of top 12 schools:
Some are as early as October 1st for R1 - HBS, Wharton, Insead, etc. Usually you need at least 3 weeks (4 recommended) before the school deadline. Preferrable earlier as you will have quite a few other tasks to do to fill out the application, write essays, get LOR's, etc. Research the schools you want to apply to, and build a calendar for when what is due.
