Do I have a shot at applying for Round 3 this year?
I think you would have a shot in R3 for sure. Of course you already know that being a Thai citizen is your ace in the hole. Offering this perspective in the classroom would be considered an asset to b-schools who are always trying to diversify the admit pool. Your credentials make you an impressive candidate otherwise as well, so it wouldn't just be about your ethnicity. I would add Duke and Kellogg to the mix and perhaps a couple of "safety schools" if your intention is to go to school next year for certain. If you are happy to wait in order to get in the school of your choice, this can be ignored. The good news is, it's only a few months until R1 for 2014, so if you don't get in R3, you can pick some fresh schools for R1.
