April round disadvantage? [#permalink]

Hello,

I have applied to other top 15 schools, (waitlisted at one), and I am wondering if I would be at a huge disadvantage applying next week to Cornell. I improved my GMAT score (710), and I feel like overall I would be a competitive candidate. Is it too late to even try?

Thanks!

Just a quick note, I believe Cornell is rolling admissions, so if you apply now, they will start looking at it. So my two cents are if you apply, earlier is better so you can atleast be ahead of all the people applying the day of the deadline.

Is there a disadvantage? Sure I think there is. But knowing nothing but your 710, I dont think anybody can credibly tell you how competitive you are or what your chances are. If you are certain you can put together a great application beyond your simple stats, I’m sure you’ll have a chance. All we know now is that you miss 100% of shots you don’t take.

At this stage, I wonder if you started working on the essays or not. If you haven't doesn't it seem too late? It may not shine through and you may suffer from that - just an opinion.
And yeah, without any other parameter than the GMAT, its not going to be any valuable advice. And on that 710 GMAT - it is just there to be considered a candidate, but a lot depends on other parts of the application (incl. essays).
Think about it. Application fee is not cheap, but not that prohibitive either!!

I read on reddit that fuqua took a grand total less than 10 people from the last round and that mostly last round is to fill in profile gaps for almost all top schools. So unless you are a URM or with unique hook I'd advise next year.
