We regularly get asked if it's too early to start working on an application for admissions into our programs. Every summer we review our applications and make changes. This typically involves new essay questions, and slightly different information in the application itself. Right now we are working to finalize those changes for Fall 2010. We recognize that many of you want to get a head start on your application and get a feel for all the things that have to come together to get you admitted into the program.
So, I'd recommend looking over the application, reading through the essay questions, and start thinking about how you would answer those questions. Think about who you would like to use as your professional recommendations, and about your resume and if it needs any updates. Think about where you need to go to request your official transcript(s) and about how much prep time you will need to study for the GMAT.
If you give yourself a head start on the application, you will be that much more prepared to submit it when the deadline arrives.
