Does Round 3 Hold a Future For Me?  [#permalink]

FROM Veritas Prep Admissions Blog: Does Round 3 Hold a Future For Me?

This past week a lot of applicants learned their fates as many top MBA programs – including HBS and Stanford – released their Round 2 decisions. If you were admitted to your dream program – congratulations! If you were not – let’s take a look at some of your burning questions.

 

Is it too late to apply in Round 3?

No it is not, but you better hurry! Deadlines at most top programs are right around the corner.

  • April 1 – Tuck
  • April 2 – Wharton
  • April 3 – Stanford
  • April 4 – Booth and Haas
  • April 8 – Sloan
  • April 10 – Columbia and Kellogg
  • April 16 – Yale
I’ve heard there’s no chance of being admitted in Round 3. Is that true?

It is possible to be admitted as a Round 3 applicant. To have a chance of being admitted in Round 3, you’ll need to present a strong application. To give yourself the best chance of admission, check to see if your application measurables (GMAT score, undergraduate GPA, years of work experience) align with or exceed the class profile numbers at your target school. If you’re a strong candidate or have something unique to offer you may be just the person the admissions committees are looking to admit. Also, you may be applying to your backup schools or backups to the backups, so make sure you enthusiastically and convincingly convey why you’re excited about attending the school you’re applying to.

I’ve been waitlisted, what should I do?

One of the most common reasons applicants end up on the waitlist is their test score. If your GMAT is below your target program’s average, you should strongly consider retaking the test. If you really want to get into a school, then we recommend that you do everything in your power to get in.  If that means studying three hours a day for the next four weeks to improve your GMAT score, then do it! These programs are looking for driven individuals who are willing to do whatever it takes to achieve their goals. Once you have something new to tell them, then be sure to communicate these updates to the admissions committee!

The other thing you’ll want to do, regardless of your test score, if the school accepts an update or supplemental essay, you’ll want to make sure you write a great one! Think hard about what weaknesses, if any, you want to address and what positive updates you have to share – a promotion at work, additional responsibility or big projects undertaken, perhaps you’ve taken steps and made progress towards the career goals you set forth in your application. Highlight activities, experiences, and accomplishments that add value to your candidacy.

Applying in Round 3 or being on the waitlist can be challenging. What other questions do you have? Veritas Prep has consultants who have helped applicants just like you get in during Round 3 or off the waitlist. Some of our consultants successfully faced the same situations themselves. Contact us today to speak with an admissions expert and find out how we can help you.

First Mover Advantage: Start Your MBA Applications Early & Improve You  [#permalink]

FROM Veritas Prep Admissions Blog: First Mover Advantage: Start Your MBA Applications Early & Improve Your Chances of Admission into Top Business Schools
At Veritas Prep headquarters, spring is definitely one of our favorite times of the year! Not just because of the warmer weather, but also because our admissions consulting clients are letting us know what top-tier MBA programs they’re hearing from and sharing their success stories with us. Along with help from their consultants, we know our clients put a lot of effort into their applications.  And for many clients who are heading to the most elite business schools this fall, they also started the application process months ahead of deadlines. Being admitted to a top-ranked MBA program requires much more than a high GMAT score and a set of grammar-perfect essays. Allotting yourself plenty of time ahead of deadlines gives you an opportunity to show business schools that you mean, well, business. Veritas Prep First Movers start the application process months in advance of their competition and capitalize on their head start in a number of ways. Here are just a couple of great reasons to get started early:

  • School fit that’s genuine: Veritas Prep First Movers don’t have to simply rely on rankings and school websites. They actually have time to visit campuses, network with alum, attend information sessions, and really understand each target school’s unique culture.  This allows a First Mover to not only find a program that feels right, but also effectively showcase to the admissions committee why they’re a perfect fit and will thrive in the program.
  • Improve application weaknesses:  First Movers don’t have to simply explain profile weaknesses in their application, but they have time to actually improve weaknesses.  This can mean leading a new project at work or in a volunteer organization, taking classes at your local community college or online, or strategically preparing for and retaking the GMAT.  Veritas Prep First Movers are taking action now so that no explanations are necessary!
