Hi Calvinbabushca,

In general, we do not recommend individuals apply to the final round for business school. Final rounds for a given school (be it round 3 or round 4) are often challenging because for many schools, this is the time they are focused on completing their class and picking very specific profiles. In addition, if you submit an application in March and are not admitted, you do not have much time to regroup and improve your profile before reapplying in October for the next season.

I hope this was of help.

Cheers,

Conrad and the Stacy Blackman Team

Thanks for the feedback! Do you think I am a competitive candidate if I apply to Columbia's J-Term and 1st round next year?

Thanks,
