I'm currently preparing for the Fall recruitment session of MBB in the UK (with the deadlines for application all towards the end of October), but I have an important surgery scheduled for mid-October, and the estimated time of recovery is 10 days. I worry that this might hinder my chances at MBB if I send my application in late September and start being invited to tests/interviews in Oct.
Do you know how soon after submitting an application we are expected to hear back? Should I wait til mid-October to submit my applications in case they ask me to take the tests right away? Or would you recommend that I completely reschedule my medical intervention for December? I'd appreciate any insights on the estimated recruitment timelines.
