Clear Admit MBA Planner App is Currently Free!

UPDATE: As you can tell in the comments, the MBA Planner App from Clear Admit will be free through the application season.  After using it, I think it’s a very useful tool to have during admissions, so go download it now. 😉

I’m always a skeptic when it comes to paid apps, but when an app goes on sale for the price of nothing, it’s usually on my computer in a few minutes.

I got the notice on MBA Planner from Free App Alert, a price drop site that I like to use.  The price of this app is usually $3.99 but is currently free on what I assume is a temporary basis.

I haven’t had time to play with this app to see if it’s any good, but the screenshots look very promising.  The app seems to consolidate all the timelines, essay questions, and admission deadline dates for all the top business schools.

At the end of the day, who really cares about how good it is?  Right now it’s free, so go download it before they jack the price back up.  The icon link below will take you to the app store.

I just downloaded this app and the Haas deadline says December 2011 – 480+ days. just fyi…

Your absolutely right Richard, thanks for the notification. You’ll also notice that for many schools, it says “GMAT Not Required” and “Resume Not Required,” which is somewhat riduculous for any Top 10 school. This app definitely needs an update from Clear Admit, but at the end of the day, you can’t beat the price.

Hey folks,

You are correct that the app is presently free – thanks for letting people know!

As to deadlines, the new app updates data on the fly (via the web) as schools make data available (not all schools have finalized their deadlines/essays/class profile for the coming cycle). Just hit the ‘reload’ button at the top right of the app to pull the latest data.

In terms of your specific comments, Berkeley/Haas is now up to date. On the resume field, many top programs do not require a resume to be submitted with the application – or they make it optional (of course, within that group many schools do require/recommend that you bring one to your interview). As to the GMAT, I think that field is designed to reflect whether or not the school needs your official scores before you can click “submit” on your application – or whether you can self-report and have the official scores come across later… We’ll try to clarify in the next update.

Best of luck with your MBA applications!

Thanks for the update. I refreshed the school information and all the dates / requirements are accurate. This will definitely be a great app to use during the application process. Do you know how long this app will be free?

Mako,

Thanks for your response! We intend for the app to be free to all applicants throughout this year’s admissions cycle.

Best of luck with your applications!
