Does it matter which deadline you apply to?

Post Wed Oct 11, 2017 3:10 pm
Hello,

I am beginning to study for the GMAT this week. I've noticed most application deadlines are Oct/Jan/Mar ish. Is there a benefit in applying over one or the other. Do they fill up by the second deadline/are they more selective with third round applicants/etc. Ideally I would like to apply second round, but I'm not sure if I feel confident enough study for the gmat/write essays/etc within 2 months. Thoughts?

Thank you!

Generally, it is recommended to apply in round 1 or 2. The admission chances in the last round are usually lower, and you are less likely to be offered a scholarship.
If your GMAT delayes your work on your application, you might want to consider these late deadlines (some of them are not last rounds):
