    Host: When do I need to apply by?

    David Petersam: The general rule of thumb is apply when you are ready. That said generally it's in your advantage to apply earlier than later. There is more open spots in the class that you are competing for and your chances are a little bit better. Year after year when we would review our proprietary database in the summer, we see that the people applied in rounds one and round two had a much better chance of getting in, given the same career progression, the same GMAT scores, the same university transcripts is those people that apply late such as round three. Again and rather someone apply in round three with an application reflex 100% of their best effort, then apply in round two with the sloppy rushed application.
