early birds at T14

Postby icpb » Wed Aug 31, 2011 7:49 pm

At which of the T14 schools would getting your application in before October 1st offer significant advantage as opposed to getting it in after October 1st? I will correct/update this list for those early birds who are wondering about this as well.

Yale: doesn't matter much
Harvard: ?
Stanford: ?
Columbia: ?
Chicago: ?
NYU: doesn't matter much
Michigan: doesn't matter much
Penn: ?
Berkeley: ?
UVa: ?
Duke: doesn't matter much
Northwestern: doesn't matter much
Cornell: doesn't matter much
Georgetown: doesn't matter much

October 1 isn't at all late. From pretty much every school I spoke with, "early" is defined as before Thanksgiving, since that is when a large rush of applications start coming in and the pile really begins to grow. So I'm not sure what significance, if any, October 1 would have.

+1

You'll find that if you submit in September you will get results back sooner since they have less apps to deal with during that time, but it's not going to impact your cycle.
