why bother applying early..?

Postby ykim5 » Wed Feb 17, 2010 2:47 pm

I applied to all the schools by second week of october.
My numbers were just in the range that advisors have told me to apply early when there are more seats...
How does that help if I haven't heard from any of the schools yet(except for one of the tier 2)
by now most of the seats are filled and... my application is in review forever...

In your case, there isn't. However, those with high enough numbers, applying early means more scholarship money.

It's not a panacea for a weak application

just one anecdote

I applied to L&C early in cycle and was offered a nice scholarship that I am strongly considering. Those who applied later, some with better numbers than myself, are all receiving a letter that says "sorry we ain't got no monies. maybe later though, dood"
