Researching MBA programs requires you to search schools' websites and visit various forums, attend information sessions, initiate networking with current students/alumni and visit school campuses, when feasible. So, you should start in time and do your due diligence.
Uninformed selection of schools has certain risks. You may underestimate the strengths of your profile and end up without applying to the better MBA programs you deserve. On the other hand, you may apply to all strong programs and the outcome might turn negative because of the mismatch between your profile and schools' expectations/offerings.
