Thanks Giving too late to apply?

Postby hiya24 » Wed Nov 23, 2011 11:16 am

Would it be too late to apply to top 10 today or tomorrow? Or should I wait until September/October of next year? I would rather not share much about my stats right now (other than I'm a URM), just wondering what the general consensus is. Thanks!

If you're asking how much of a disadvantage you might be in from applying now-- almost none. I think there is a very, very, very slight advantage (like maybe 1 of 5 people might get into 1 school they otherwise would have gotten waitlisted at) in getting apps in super-early so you can be in the first wave of admits. But schools have probably given out less than 10% of their admittances at this point. And certainly nobody is putting in deposits for seats.

Not too late at all. Just read over each app and make sure there aren't any errors... Because you aren't late in applying, be patient with your application review.

I'll add that I actually asked this same question yesterday, and received the answers from different users than who answered so far in this thread. Seems to be the consensus that Thanksgiving is still ahead of the game, just not ahead of the TLS game; regardless, advantage of halloween relative to thanksgiving is minimal.
