The January Round 2 deadline to apply to business schools probably came and went while you were still ringing in the new year. Or, if you have just decided you want to go to business school, Round 3 is the time to apply to get your MBA.
So what's with the rounds? Rounds are business school application periods. Most schools have 3 rounds, while other schools have 4 or accepted students on a rolling basis (until the class is filled). Round 1, in October, is always the best round to apply. It isn't very competitive since this deadline slips many students minds. Round 2 tends to be competitive because more people apply in this round than any other. While Round 3 is less competitive than Round 2, Round 3 acceptance is still difficult because much of the class has been filled already. So while you have fewer students, you have fewer spots.
If you are applying Round 3, your best weapon and reason you should be accepted is your GMAT score. Don't "enter the ring" not ready to fight. You have to train for the GMAT and business school like any top athlete. Preparing alone is not the best way to go about it: get a trainer, get a training plan, and get a sparring buddy. APPLY ME can help you with all 3 of these.
