The University of North Carolina’s Kenan-Flagler Business School recently released its application deadlines for the coming admissions season. Here they are, followed by our comments in italics:
Kenan-Flagler Application Deadlines
Early Action (Round 1): October 22, 2010
Round 2: December 3, 2010
Round 3: January 7, 2011
Round 4: March 18, 2011
These deadlines are virtually the same as Kenan-Flagler’s 2009-2010 deadlines. Note that the first round is actually an Early Action round. While it’s not Early Decision (i.e., you are not committing to attend if admitted), you will have just three weeks after the Dec. 13 notification date to make your decision and send your deposit to Kenan-Flagler. Fortunately, many other top-ranked schools’ deadlines come before the Jan. 3 deposit date. While we don’t recommend applying to UNC’s Early Action round unless you’re very serious about the school, this timing allows you to know your Round 1 fate at some top-tier MBA programs before committing and sending your deposit to Kenan-Flagler.
