A few weeks ago, we published Round 1 application deadlines for some of the top MBA programs in America. The rest of the deadlines for the top programs weren’t yet released. But now we’ve got some more deadlines for our readers because who doesn’t want to read about deadlines? University of Pennsylvania (Wharton), Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Sloan), Northwestern University (Kellogg), University of California—Berkeley (Haas), Cornell University (Johnson), University of California—Los Angeles (Anderson) have all since released their deadlines.
Students who are interested in applying for MBA admission this year should do so in Round 1.
There’s about two months (and some change) left before the Round 1 deadlines are here and for students interested in applying for admission to top MBA programs, it’s important to know that applying in Round 1 can vastly improve your odds of admission. So procrastination is not your friend if you seek to earn admission to the likes of the Stanford Graduate School of Business and Harvard Business School. Not in the least.
While we continue to await deadline announcements for University of Virginia (Darden) and Duke University (Fuqua), our experience tells us those applications will most likely be due no later than the first week of October. Have a question about the MBA Round 1 deadlines or MBA admission in general? Post your question below and we’ll be sure to write back.
