Some schools operate on a rolling admissions schedule, while others use rounds. Schools that use rounds expect that your application is complete and submitted by the posted deadline. All of the applications that were submitted by that deadline are reviewed together. The next batch of applications will be reviewed after the next deadline has passed. For example, if a deadline is November 15 and you submit your application on November 16, you may have missed the chance to be reviewed in that round. Fisher uses a rolling admissions schedule.
As you focus on an upcoming application deadline, you may be planning to submit all of your application materials at the same time.
If you’re looking to pursue a graduate degree in business, you may automatically think about an "MBA." This may be all you know about graduate business degree options.
