How important is the Dec 1 deadline vs. March 1 for UNC MAC?
I live in Raleigh and just decided I want to try and apply to the program. I haven't taken my GMAT yet. Should I hurry up and try and take it, or wait and study a bit?
-30 yrs old.
-BA in French from Big 12 school GPA: 3.4 (Good Grades in MacroEcon and Calc II) w/ 1 yr study abroad in France.
-1 yr grad school in French Lit right after undergrad -decided it wasn't for me.
-5 years designing and guiding luxury cycling trips in France/Italy. Also have management experience.
-Fluent in French, basic Italian
-Just got back from volunteering with Peace Corps.
If my GMAT ends up not being super-strong , will some of my experiences help me out? or is admissions not really interested in that for this program? (I should do OK on Gmat, i think. Took GRE in 2003 and did pretty well.)
N.B. I won't be applying to other programs, as my wife's job will keep us in the area for at-least one more year.
Thanks for your help!
