How early is early cycle?

Postby atkpl » Tue Nov 30, 2010 11:31 am

I submitted app yesterday and some a week ago,

Am I applying late? I thought it was not late, but I have been reading post here

and it looks like everyone already applied like a month ago!!

How early is "applying early?"

Is now late or early??

I believe the generally accepted wisdom is:

before Halloween = super early
before Thanksgiving = early
before Christmas = average (although the sooner before Christmas the better. i.e. yesterday is far better than Dec 15th)
after New Years = late
after Feb 1st = really late

You should be fine :)

It really depends on a lot of things. The school's admission process, the strength of your app, their class size relative to the applicant pool etc.

But generally speaking, you should be in good shape OP.
