2.5 Months to Round 2 Deadlines! What to do Now…

Here are the top-7 things you should do now, with only 2.5 months to go before many of the Round 2 MBA deadlines arrive.

1. Compose a list of target schools. In doing this, you should consider whether you are a strong shot for admission or whether the designated school(s) represents a “reach school” for you. If you want to attend business school next year, your list of target schools should include some surer-shot schools, reach schools and at least one safety school.

If you need assistance determining your competitiveness at various schools, consider getting feedback through our free profile evaluation. Fill out the profile evaluation form on our homepage at, or send us your most recent resume at

2. Create a timeline. If you will be applying to multiple schools for Round 2, this is particularly important. Determine what your top school choices are, consider their respective deadlines and look over their required essay questions. With this information, set out a schedule for yourself so that you make sure you can finish one application excellently and then move on to the next application, leveraging whatever content is relevant. You don’t want to miss deadlines because you failed to pace your work.

3. Approach recommendation writers. Make sure you have approached your recommendation writers and get them “on board” for writing for you. You will want to make sure to have the recommendations completed, ideally, before the December vacation period so that you are not rushing in early January trying to secure recommendations.

4. Schedule school visits/Research your target schools. Make sure to schedule school/class visits with your top-choice MBA programs, if traveling to visit is feasible for you. Also begin to do more in-depth research about the programs offered by your target MBA programs, scouring their website and blogs, and reaching out to alumni members or current students.

5. Think through your long-term and short-term goals. You should refine your written statements about your long-term and short-term goals, which are typically asked for in the MBA applications. You want both your long-term and short-term goals to work for you as great assets in the MBA admissions process.

6. Choose a consultant. If you plan to work with a consultant, sign up soon so that the consultant can help you maximize your efforts over the next few months.

7. Begin drafting! Start writing your MBA essays. You don’t want to cram the work at the last minute. The MBA application is considered your “marketing package” and you want your essays to be skillfully written and compelling enough to get to a “Yes” in admissions.
