Question about Fall 2011 applications

Postby marklg89 » Thu Jul 01, 2010 11:01 am

Hey all,

I'm planning on applying for the Fall 2011 cycle, and since these are rolling admissions it seems paramount to submit the applications ASAP. I noticed that, as of right now, the applications for the Fall 2011 cycle are not yet available. My question is this: once the applications do become available, do we have some 'cushion' time to prepare them for submission, or are they ready to submit the day they go online?

For example, the application for school X becomes available on September 1st, and the last deadline for submission is Nov 1st (random numbers). Can one submit the application the very day it becomes available (ie Sep 1st), or is there a buffer between when the application becomes available and when submissions actually start (for example, you can only start submitting after September 10th)? This is my first time applying to LS, and the process is similar yet also different from the UG application process (notably, the rolling admissions). I plan on getting my PS ready before applications become available, but few of the professors writing my LoR's will be gone until September, and so I'm curious about how much time we really have available to prepare and submit before the admission process begins. Thanks for any info!

Not the specific answer to your question, but if an application becomes available on September 1, the difference in your chances between submitting it on September 1 and September 30 is probably pretty negligible, even with rolling admissions.

Schools typically make applications available at least a week before they start accepting applications, so you usually have some time.
