GSB and HBS have announced their MBA application deadlines. You can find their deadlines below.

Regarding which round applicants should target, the answer is “when you think you will have the strongest application”.

Ideally, you should target round one. It is still early enough in the process that if your dream is round one admission to your top schools you should be able to achieve it if you plan accordingly and avoid any major missteps.

As far as Stanford is concerned applicants should apply round one over round two.

On their admission website Stanford encourages applicants to apply round one over round two by stating that round two has more people applying in it and is slightly more competitive.

Essays should be coming shortly from GSB and HBS schools. Hopefully other top programs will take HBS’ and Stanford’s lead and get their deadlines and essays out early.

That is customer service–being sensitive to your clients and recognizing that applicants (business schools’ clients) need more time to work on their application instead of waiting till August and September to provide that information.
