What’s the recommended way to stagger applications? I’m planning on applying to 5-6 of the M7. Is submitting 5 R1 applications crazy? Or should I just do my top 2-3 choices R1 and then wait for results?

A lot of people apply to 5 in one round. A lot of the content can be reused. Also if you’re already thinking about apps for R1 2022 seems like you are on a good timeline and should be able to get it all done.

I did 2 first round 1 and got into both M7s and was happy I didn’t waste time. If you start now maybe you’ll be good? I also knew it could be exhausting for my recommenders who were VPs in our org so didn’t want to fatigue them

like

Top 2-3 choices then review results and get ready for round 2. Best case you don’t have to apply to more than 3. Worst case you get feedback in knowing that you need to improve your application for round 2. Difference in acceptance rate between round 1 and 2 is negligible so no harm in not putting them all in round 1.

5 is very doable if you get your GMAT score out of the way and can focus on the apps and essays. Once you nail your short and long term goals and why business school, you can repurpose content. It’s hard (but not impossible) if you’re planning to study, take the test, and work on apps at the same time. Don’t forget to also account for work and personal commitments in your planning. Good luck!

Agreed If you have the stats. Start now and get the 5 in. If you don’t have the stats staggering helps because you can study more and/or take some course to boost your profile

I think 5 is very reasonable in round one if you already have a test score. I started in June and applied to 5 M7 schools in R1 didn’t feel like the time was crushing

like

I don’t think five is a crazy number to do in round 1. You can shoot for it, and if you notice yourself getting crunched for time, then push one to round two.

I did 6 in R1- started in June last year and finished all my apps a few weeks ahead of deadlines. There’s a lot of overlap between schools’ essays so if you’re consistently progressing, it’s not too much

In hindsight I would have only done 4-5 though. I got into all 6 and then realized I wasn’t super excited about a couple of them

Just spectacularly botched an informational interview. Basically got very politely told I don’t have a clear plan for my career, my resume doesn’t match my vague goals, and I need to figure that out ASAP (3rd year attorney). Worst part is I have gotten that feedback before at an informational interview right out of LS. Probably keeps coming up because it’s true. Just embarrassed especially because I wanted to make a good impression on behalf of my mentor/referr. Commiseration &criticism welcome.
