MBA Application Deadlines

The age of coronavirus has seen Third (and Fourth!) rounds of Full Time MBA application deadlines extended. Of course, early application is always best (before those first round seats are filled) but there are still open seats! If you are reconsidering pursuing an MBA next year, there is still time for you to develop a strong application before MBA application deadlines.

Some schools (we’re looking at you HBS) have done away with their third round application period. That makes it that much more imperative for those intending to apply to get your applications in tip-top shape ASAP, and all your ducks in a row for a shot at that top program.

A special shoutout to Darden School of Business at UVA. Darden has extended its Round 3 application deadline by more than 3 months to July 15, and is also accepting SAT/ACT scores in lieu of the GMAT/GRE. Kudos to the Admissions team at Darden!
