If the deadline is Monday, I would assume as long as it’s in by the end of the day it’s fine.


If those essays are going to play a big part in your application, isn’t it better to do them now and have the extra time to tweak? I have been to Q&A sessions for writing programs where I was told spelling/grammar errors are pretty much the first thing that gets an application tossed in the bin.

I work in higher ed.  The last moment to apply is 11:59 PM on deadline night.

Writing essays at the eleventh hour is a horrible idea.  Remember that the vast majority of applicants will be qualified.  The essays are where they’ll see the distinction between one excellent applicant and another.  Do not procrastinate on essays.
