if Round 2s are in January, you have a chance, you just can't really apply to more than 2-3 schools. The first school will probably take you 1 month to prepare (along with recommendation letters, all your history, transcripts, etc...), which puts you to mid-December. You probably have time to do one more school and give it a fair amount of time (2-3 weeks).

Thank you so much. I'm new to the forum so was hardly expecting any reply to my query. I hope I do good in the exam. Good score will save much pain later.

thanks.

Hi Kryzak

I have seen a lot of timelines threads which you have aggregated in the vault, although they are helpful for applicants I still have some doubts hoping you could give some advice.

I am aiming at Jan/Sep 2011 courses and have started the application process, many schools do not change there essays radically from one year to another year so I am working with Sep 2010 essays and trying to figure out my story. What I am really confused about is the app strategy as I think I have the time to prepare essays for all of my target schools come R1 should I go ahead and apply to all of them in R1 ?

Also since I have all this time on hand I am also looking at early decision rounds like Columbia (does any other school have a early decision round?)

Hi crackfire2003,

I think practicing essays on this year's topics is good, and the essays don't change that much. Even if they do, you can use the stories for other schools or other essays, so it won't be all moot.

If you are ready for R1, I would recommend doing that. You find out earlier (in January) and can relax (or quit your job) earlier.

I don't think any other school has ED like Columbia, sorry.

Cheers!

Hey thanks for this post guys, I was just trying to figure out whether I need to be saving my vacation time this year for interviews, or if the interviews would be beginning of next year.

It sounds like if I apply R1 2011, then the interviews will most likely be in December 2011. Which means no exotic trips this year... oh well :D
