Application Submission


Recommended Posts

Some users claim that applications are reviewed in waves, with those submitting their applications early going through the first wave/cut.  I have know idea if those statements are true or not, but if a program filters applicants by GRE/GPA, and has strict cut-offs, you might know sooner than later if you were rejected.  Some programs also have rolling admissions of sorts, meaning that even though the application period is only open from D Date to ED End Date they review and decide on applications shortly after they are received and complete. 


Other than that the only advantage I can think of is the weight lifted from knowing it is done.

Honestly though, most people I know submitted their applications in the last 24 hours before the cutoff, and it didn't seem to make any difference concerning whether they were accepted or not. Of course it would be great to get it in before then and have the weight off your back, but other than that, I think there's no need to worry that you're missing a round of application reading by the admissions committee, and if you submit your app at the last minute, your chances should be as good as anyone else's.
