Weird question [#permalink] New post 19 Dec 2012, 03:46
Hi there!


I have a weird question. :)
I am planning to apply to 4 schools - Oxford, Cambridge, HBS and LBS.
I already started my preparation for the first 2 universities.
What I expected was that I should send some paper documents via post (in addition to the electronic application form) but so far I don't see anything like that.
So my question is - Are there any documents that should be send via post in addition to the application form?
The reason I am asking is because I need to know how many days do I have to prepare all the applications.
In case I need to send some paper documents I should be done with everything in 1 week. Otherwise I would have much more time until the end of round 2.

Thanks a lot for your time and consideration.

Some of the paper documents that need to be sent via post are (these are not required until you get an admit):
1. Official transcripts of all undergrad/grad colleges
2. VISA related documents in case you need it

Everything else - GMAT scores, TOEFL, unofficial transcripts, etc. - should either be entered or a scanned copy must be uploaded in the online app.

Hope this helps!

I would also suggest that you confirm (either on the schools' websites or via email/call to adcoms) whether they are indeed not needed until after admission. Well visa documents are definitely after admission, if applicable, but some schools do require official transcripts before. However, these are usually in the minority.

Good luck with your apps :)

USC Marshall is an example of such a school. The official transcripts need to be mailed before they can offer an admission.

As westsidah408 rightly mentioned, check the school website thoroughly.

All the best!
