January admissions [#permalink] New post 24 Oct 2013, 23:57
Hi,

I have heard some talks about January admissions.can any one clarify the listed questions below

1. Compared to September, January will have few number of seats as most seats will be filled in September, which obviously lead to low chances of admission.
2. Scholarships have no chances to apply at this that time as it was only good during September.

i want to apply for Jan intake 2015.

Can you be more specific about the program you are considering.

I think some of your 'advice' is getting mixed up between different topics. When applying for fall admission, yes -- earlier rounds of admission often fare more favorably. But for schools that have January-start programs, this is a completely different calculus.

Hope this helps.

If you are done with the GMAT in Jan, I see no reason for not applying for the Fall intake... There are very few schools which offer the spring intake and you would be limiting yourself unnecessarily by targeting the spring intake.

I tend to agree w/ MacFauz here --- any reason why you are specifically targeting January admissions? Are you aiming for full-time or part-time or executive admissions?

Hi brianlange77,

If i am taking my GMAT in Jan and TOEFL in Feb,There will be a few time for me to allow myself for preparing applications before deadlines. Adding to that, i was very much needed of scholarships which cant be excepted if i apply for last rounds. For these reasons, I am planning to go for Spring start Colleges.
From the information gathered, the below colleges are in my mind. can you please recommend more.There is no global constraints for me.

1. University of Capetown( South Africa)
2. Queens MBA( Too expensive for me)( Canada)
3. Nayang school of business( Singapore) - April Start
4. Indian School Of business ( India) - April start

Also, Your opinion on my selected colleges.

Thanks for the extra clarification -- admittedly, that is out of my ballpark as I don't have any direct knowledge as to those schools. I wonder if this isn't the best specific forum for this question -- is there a broader 'international MBA' forum?

Good luck!

-Brian
