Earliest to apply for early decision (2020 entrant)  [#permalink]

Hi,

I am planning to start full-time MBA in Fall 2020. I have just started working on the application process - GMAT prep, essays, etc. It will take few months for me to get ready for taking the GMAT and to complete the application packages for each school I shall apply to. I plan to apply for round-1 in 2019 for early decision.

How early can/should I submit my application & recommendation letters before round-1 deadline? For example, can I submit application in May or June 2019 for round-1 (typically the deadline is in September)?

Thanks.

Well, you may apply as soon as the application portal opens. Usually, deadlines and essay questions are announced in July every year. So, depending on your speed of writing essays you may apply as soon as you can. And yes, it does help to apply early. Good Luck!

If you are targeting MBA programs that have early decision round (like Columbia and Duke), you should start looking for their application materials and deadlines around May-June 2019. You can apply as soon as they open their online applications. Columbia ED deadline is usually in early October (Oct 3 this year), and Duke's is in early September (Sep 12 this year). Keep in mind that applying long before the deadline will give you an advantage only at early decision schools, which read applications by the order they were received, but not at other schools with regular deadlines.
