rolling admissions [#permalink] New post 13 Apr 2011, 05:31
Hi, I am currently applying to B-schools in NYC, and am re-taking the GMAT on Friday. I know that I am quite late in the process for fall 2011, and the schools I am looking at all have rolling admissions.

My question is: if I apply near the end of the deadlines for rolling admissions, am I seriously crippling my chances of getting accepted, and would I be better off applying for Spring 2012?

In other words, if applying near the deadlines for schools with rolling admissions, are most spots already filled?

The most competitive MBA programs are pretty much full now but will certainly be looking for standouts and people from unique backgrounds (African countries, smaller Eastern European countries, etc. of which the pickings are slim). However, the local (not internationally ranked) programs are still accepting students, yes. These programs do not have the intense level of competition and therefore do generally still have spots available in the class. If you statistically meet their criteria, go ahead and apply. If your GPA or GMAT fall short, you may want to build an alternate transcript with some business courses and/or retake the GMAT.
