Catch them young!
We know of colleges that ‘train’ students for Engineering and Medical entrance examinations 4 to 6 years before they are due to take. That’s possibly because students and parents are eager to get into the best possible universities and programs. Now, the trend is catching up with students who want to study abroad, and how!
Students right from 9th class onwards are looking for information and assistance with their ideas of studying Bachelor’s degrees abroad. They are very proactive in getting all the information and planning well in advance – to join the bandwagon of students who are the ‘elite’ among their peers.
Manhattan Review is delighted to provide one-on-one sessions, interactive seminars and presentations to help such students. We visit their schools/colleges and provide all the required assistance to empower them in keeping one step ahead, in this highly competitive world. In fact, we are surprised by the interest and enthusiasm of young adults to study on the global stage.
Congratulations on your planning and best wishes for your efforts. MR will be with you all the way!
MBA application timelines – There are a lot of schools globally and each of them has different application deadlines that prospective students should know. According to U.S. News, applicants should understand what he or she needs to do before, during and after submitting their business school application.
Judith Hodara, who is the former acting director of MBA admissions and former senior associate director of admissions for the Wharton School at University of Pennsylvania, advised prospective MBA students to prepare for their business school application six to nine months before. They should already be working on recommendation letters, essays and other materials needed months before the deadline.
Ideally, business school applicants should take the GMAT (Graduate Management Admission Test) six weeks before applications are due. Taking the test multiple times may also help improve candidates’ scores.
Prospective students are usually encouraged to take the exam more than once. Here are some business school application tips since that can help applicants with their admissions tests. Deadline for business school applications are usually in the fall, around the beginning of October. Hodara noted that Harvard Business School may have the round one deadline as early as September.
Candidates may receive interview requests within two weeks to a month after submitting their business school application. Prospective students can get ready for the interview by reviewing their application materials.
The deadline for round two of applications is usually required by mid-January. Experts confirmed that round two candidates could be interviewed in February. It was noted that “only exceptional candidates should apply in round three.” Hodara added that this is where it gets “super selective.”
Successful candidates will need to submit a deposit by the end of April. This varies on the round in which the student applied. Afterwards, students are urged to spend the summer before business school begins by connecting with their new classmates and preparing for the fall recruitment season.
Take off – Our services to Canada took off very well, with a lot of students keen on studying in one of the best destinations for academic excellence and immigration. Two intakes a year, and sometimes three (in some universities) make it more easily accessible – for almost all programs and fields of study. Cost of education is cheaper and so is cost of living. Funding availability (financial aid) is good, if not better than many other countries.
