Students planning to apply for Spring 2012 would be wondering what would be an ideal plan to apply for next Spring….Last year, I have spent quite some time trying to explain the deadlines and give a sample plan. You must read this article :Application Deadlines Spring, Plan – MS in USA . Uing the same plan in that article, I have revised the dates with year 2011 to reflect for Spring 2012.

Should I follow the exact plan for Spring 2012 MS Application ?
Well, you do not have to follow the same plan. The above plan is just based on experience and it helps you plan ahead. Some of you may be behind and some of you may be forward…All you have to do is look at the deadlines and pace yourself. If you are behind, you just have to squeeze in other tasks to apply for Spring 2012 at right time…
Are you on track for Spring 2012 ?
