Acceptance of offers timelines


Hi all, first time poster - I've had a look through the forums and can't see anything on this but please forgive me if it exists.

I'm Australia based and looking to apply to schools in Europe - my top 2 are IMD and INSEAD. I've been struggling to find info on how long you have to accept offers (assuming I get them of course).

I would like to apply within the first two rounds, but am concerned that I may receive an offer and have to respond before I know about the second school - how do people approach this?

Thanks in advance!

Daniel

Generally, you pay the deposit at your safety school and lose it if your preference comes through.

Yes. Schools tend to have hard deadlines for when you need to accept. Sometimes the cycle lines up, and you have all of your admits at the same time, but often it doesn't and you need to pay a deposit at your backup school before you know about your first choice.
