Regarding Deadlines... [#permalink] New post 02 Dec 2012, 12:11
I'm planning on applying to Business school in February of 2013 (I'm taking the GMAT mid- January), but I don't want to apply to any school where I would be considered a 3rd round applicant, as I hear they have a much lower acceptance rate than do 1st & 2nd round applicants.

SO, my questions are as follows:
1. Is my assumption correct? (Assumption: For good b-schools, 3rd round applicants have a much lower acceptance rate than do 1st & 2nd round applicants.)

2.Are there many B- schools that would not consider a February applicant as a 3rd round applicant, but rather consider me as a 1st or 2nd round applicant?
What percent of total b-schools would consider a February applicant as a 1st or 2nd round applicant?

3. Do many/any Business schools schools use "rolling admissions", which would preclude me from being considered 1st, 2nd or 3rd round applicant?

I m not the right person to answer such a tough question. But I certainly know if you are good fit for the school and the adcoms also think so, you will be in. If they admit 360, they won't mind admitting 361 if your app is strong enough.

Good luck !!

Hi Tess,

I totally agree that you should focus on your application essays & interviews to make a strong application. In fact, these are the deciding factors for your scholarship as well. Also what b-school ADCOMS look for is the diversity in the class, what value you will create in the class and how will you contribute to the b-school society. Having said this, it is highly advisable to concentrate on your application essays. This is where you can demonstrate your leadership qualities, achievements, professional vision and other abilities. A well presented and perfectly written essay is absolutely critical to make a strong case for yourself during the final interview. You can try your chances in B-schools by clicking to the link: http://www.general-ed.com/chances-of-bschool

Feel free to post any other concern you might have.

Cheers!!
Neha
