A simple Query!

Hi Clear Admit Folks!

I have a small query here. I am planning to give my GMAT in Feb and thus would also give Round 3 a worthwhile try (although I am aware of limited chance in round 3).
Just wanted to know, that if I send my scores and applications to say a set of 5 colleges, but do not make it for XYZ reasons... would the same college view me critically if I apply again in Round 1 in coming fall??

Would I make my case weaker by giving them a chance to question me and my profile??

Would like your views on this please..

Regards

blitz28,

Thanks for your note about Round 3. Good luck with your GMAT in Feb!

There isn't really any downside to applying in Round 3. If you don't get accepted, you can just apply again as a re applicant in Round 1 next year. As a re applicant, just be sure to show how your candidacy has improved since you last applied (work accomplishments, raises, promotions, milestone in activity, etc).

Of course, the schools do admit people in Round 3 - so the big upside is that you can apply, gain admission and be off to school this fall.

Let me know if you have any more questions about Round 3. We also offer a free initial phone consultation, if you would like to chat about your candidacy in more detail.

Sincerely,

Eliot Ingram
