Various Admissions Questions [#permalink]
16 Feb 2014, 19:54
I have a lot of questions about this process. I really appreciate any answers you can provide!
1. Many top schools (i.e. Harvard) say deferred admission is considered on a case by case basis. Would my startup succeeding be a strong case for deferral? 2. Up until what approximate date would I be able to put in a request for deferral with a decent possibility of it being granted? 3. What top MBA programs allow you to defer your admission? 4. If accepted to an MBA program, what will be my appx. decision deadline on whether or not to attend? 5. At what point does your age start making it less likely you'd be admitted to a top MBA program? 6. What schools will waive application fees for low-income prospective students? 7. What schools offer the possibility of full-tuition scholarship/fellowship? 8. How much will I hurt my chances of being accepted to a top MBA program if I take the next two years off to backpack the world? (My profile is provided below)
