If you get accepted to an MBA program (think M7) first round, when do you have to tell them you’re going?

All have different dates but it’s usually before they start looking at round 2 apps

Yes. It’s a dick move, but you could just not show up on the first day of orientation, and you’d only lose your deposit. There are also people who pay two deposits to delay their decision

They provide the date. Also wouldnt it be easier to ask for a specific school rather than “think M7”

I have a few M7 schools I’m applying to so more just trying to understand generally when I’ll have to make that decision

Deposits for R1 admits are typically due in February or early March. I suspect that some schools will be able to have yield weekends this year that were canceled during COVID. Typically admitted candidates get a chance to visit and drink some Koolaid before putting down a deposit.

All 3 M7s that I got into had a date the week of March 6th.

I recently graduated with a bachelors in finance, and have recently got hired (5 months ago) as a financial analyst. Realistically I do FP&A for a company. I have realized I am not a huge fan of doing non stop spreadsheet all day. Am thinking I’d enjoy my career more by becoming a financial planner and getting my CFP certification. Maybe in the future opening up my own firm. Any advice on what career move to make next in order to accomplish this? CFP requires 3 years of relative experience.
