Rolling admissions a myth? [#permalink] New post 02 Jan 2007, 10:35
I see that UCLA has rolling admissions. Is this just a myth to have the candidates submit their applications earlier so the adcomm can have more to review apps.

It makes sense for them to review all the apps in a current round instead of deciding on a candidate as they come in. Thoughts?

LOL. Paranoid. It's not a big conspiracy man :)

Rolling admissions also doesnt STRICTLY mean they decide immediately when it comes in, it means that they release decisions as they make them - not just on one specific date.

Notre Dame does rolling... it is like 30 days or less from submit provided it is submitted before Jan.

They make it sound like you have an advantage over the other students in a round if you submit earlier. This is clearly not the case.
