Hello Is it advisable to send my application for jan intake now considering that the international deadline is 1st sep and if i am not mistaken, about half of the batch might already be full. Plz also comment about scholarship oppurtunities. My gmat-680 , decent extra - curriculars, 3 yr work ex in Indian IT MNC, helped create a consulting start-up but wasnt a part of its working, made the business strategy . i have to retake gmat aiming 700 + and would submit my complete application by 10 th july. please suggest
Well it depends on you and what you want to do and what your options are. I think you know the answer to your question - applying now will give you less chances than applying R1. Should you do it anyway? It depends on how advantageous it is for you to start earlier. And I can't really answer that for you without knowing more about your situation. Scholarship opportunities are like all other places - you get offered money based on the merit of your application. There are also some loan options outside of scholarships (mostly private).
So basically, if it is good for you to attend earlier, why not? Take your chance, and if you don't make it in, then you apply to other schools in September/October. _________________

Thanks Jon for your response. Yes, it would certainly be of great advantage if i were to start early. 8-9 months early would prove to be very helpful for me in my case . Another thing is that i have a relative in Toronto with whom i would stay, so boarding and lodging costs over the 2 years would be saved. So, even if chances of scholarships are minimal, i would prefer to join ( provided i get through). I would certainly apply now, lets see how it goes.
