Six Reasons to Apply Early to MISB

While you may think you’ve got plenty of time to spare when it comes to applying to MISB Bocconi, the truth is that there are many advantages to getting a jump start on the process.

Read
on for six reasons to aim for the Round 1 deadline of January 31.

1. Secure
Your Spot

The
PGPB at MISB has a firm, predetermined class size, and we do not accept any
future applications once we reach this limit. Applying during Round 1 ensures
that you won’t be rejected simply because of a numbers game.

2. Get
Your Finances In Order

Exploring
your financial aid options can take time. When you apply to MISB, you can
expect to receive your offer letter within a week of applying, meaning that
Round 1 applicants have significantly more time to put the finance pieces into
place. Not to mention – you may have less to piece together. (See #3.)

3. An
Inside Edge on Tuition Waivers

At
MISB, we offer both full and partial merit-based tuition waivers to candidates
with outstanding profiles. However, only candidates who have completed their
applications and been admitted to the PGPB are eligible for funding. The
majority of support is awarded during the first round, so the sooner you apply,
the better your chances.

4. Boost
Your Scores

Not
everyone gets their best score right out of the gate. Because you can still
report test scores – either for the Bocconi Entrance Test (BET) or an alternate
entrance test, such as the CAT, CMAT, GMAT, GRE or XAT – after submitting your
application, you’ll have less energy tied up in paperwork and more time to
focus on acing your entrance test.

5. Plan
Ahead

If
you’re returning to b-school from the workplace, gaining early acceptance to
MISB can give you enough time to plan your exit. Additionally, many students
choose to use this “cushion” to spend extra time with family and friends before
the rigours of b-school begin.

6. Peace
of Mind

Peace
of mind can’t be quantified, but that’s because it’s invaluable – particularly
during the potentially stressful b-school application process. By applying
early to MISB, you can minimize stress while taking one step closer to your
bright future as a member of the MISB community.

One
caveat: While applying early has definite incentives, the benefits of
submitting a thorough and comprehensive application trump all else. Whether you
make it into Round 1 or shoot for a later deadline, make sure your application
is its most compelling and complete before you click “Submit.”
