You’ve heard the warnings: “Don’t apply in Round 3; nobody gets in.”
EssaySnark has issued this declarative many many times ourselves, and it’s commonly heard on the applicant forums.
That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t apply. This QuickSnark guidelette walks you through the cases where it might make sense to apply – and cases where we strongly advise against it. We’ll go through the main criteria to use in evaluating your chances at this time of year. We’ll tell you how to define your Cross-Season Application Strategy, and why you need one.
Quick note: If an admissions consultant is encouraging you to apply in the March / April time period, be suspicious. This is the dry season for admissions consulting. Either that consultant is looking to make a sale and doesn’t care that you don’t have a chance, or they’re woefully uninformed. We’ve seen both. We would be immediately distrusting of anyone pushing you to apply now.
Sure, schools admit people in Round 3 all the time – but will they admit YOU? If you're bound and determined to try for an MBA in Round 3, let EssaySnark help. This QuickSnark mini-guide debunks the myths and walks you through a strategy to help you increase the odds of getting in – if not now, then soon. This guide walks you through the RISKS and OPPORTUNITIES of a last-round application. It discusses the TYPES OF CANDIDATES for whom a Round 3 app might make sense. However, it does not go into how to write an essay or any other mechanics of putting together your application. Instead, we focus on whether you should apply now (maybe you should!) or whether it makes more sense for you to wait a few months till Round 1. This is an instant-access information product; no refunds available.
