Hello everyone,

I have recently completed the GMAT and am now researching and shortlisting the schools that I would like to attend. I am from Canada and my goal is to attend a school somewhere in the USA. I also will be depending mostly on loans, scholarships and bursaries to fund my education as I am short on the finances.
Noting that, I looked at the websites of the schools that I will potentially be applying to. It appears that we normally have at least until the end of the month of march to get an application together to be submitted in round 3. However, I wanted to ask if a person applying in round 1 may have some sort of advantage than the person applying in round 3? Do schools have a specific quota that they aim to fill in each round? Or are all applications considered on merit basis?
Moreover, if someone applies in round 3, do they stand at some sort of disadvantage when considering major scholarships and bursaries?

Would love some words of wisdom or suggestions.

Best,
Maninder

Hi Maninder,

Are you planning to apply to R3 this year?

Consider it this ways - The schools have an empty class in Round1, so they do not have an idea how the class will shape up also, they would try to woo the candidates by better scholarships. As the rounds progress, the money from the pot is already gone, hence they have lesser money to disburse.
Also, international candidates are encouraged to apply earlier in the year because of smooth VISA processing. However you being a Canadian citizen might not have to face many problems.

Having said this, a very strong application will get through irrespective of the Round you apply in. So get your profile evaluated and then take a decision.
You can get it evaluated here: ask-admission-consultants-124/?fl=menu

If you are planning for the next intake, I would recommend you to apply in R1 and get your things done before September.

Hi Janielle,

Thanks for the reply. Yes, I am considering putting in an application this year before april (in Round 3) rather than waiting until next year to do so. Would you consider this a wise move?
I understand that the applications can take some time to complete.

Thanks,
Maninder
