I completely agree with the people who are being realistic after being placed on the waitlist in R2. The class is full (320 paid the first deposit in R1 and 460 admitted in R2) and will allow for WL to come in if R1 or R2 admitted students decide not to attend and don't pay second deposit.

Speaking of deposits, when are the R1 second deposit and R2 first deposit and second deposit dates?

Thank you.

Where did you get the info on deposits?

Also, keep in mind that plenty of those people might have just put down a deposit in R1 to guarantee a position and might be accepting other offers R2. I wouldn't be surprised if up to 25% or even more would do that. Booth only requires an initial deposit of $1,000. It's not a huge committment.

Yeah, xzeppelin, that's what I was trying to say earlier. I think this is particularly true in round 1. 25% may be high but even if it's 15% that's another 50 sports or so. Congrats on you acceptance by the way.

If HBS (admissions director's blog) says they have around 50 spots for their WL, I would assume all other schools should have at LEAST more than 50. Excluding the weird Stanford.

Would you want to?
Perhaps its less work for you/your recommenders, but from what I understand showing growth between the first and second application is key, and your LORs can provide insight to that growth.

in the current point in time I would want to leave the LORs unchanged, since I think that my relationships can spoil over the next year given that I've announced my decision to leave for MBA. But probably it's better to wait until the next season and to reassess my position within the current employer.

You might be our lone R3 applicant. When did Booth say the invite window is?

I'm in for R3 too, haven't heard anything as yet. They should be sending out invites between today and April 25th. Fingers and toes crossed!

Once invited to interview in r3 what do u think about the odds of getting in...i guess they should be better vs r1 and r2 invites dont u think?

They have prety much their classes full so if they actually invite you that might mean they want you or your profile...

any thoughts?

I think if you get an invite anywhere (besides schools that interview everyone) it is a sign they like you and a positive. Still, I don't think you can say R3 invites have more of a chance than R2 or R1 invites. Yes, you could say the committee only has 10 spots to fill so they only invite 25 people, so you are in the top 25 of R3 applicants, but that still means you have a 40% chance. Those odds are the same as if you applied round 2, they have 400 spots to fill and they invite 1,000 people to interview.

When you add into the fact that there is virtually no cost to the school to bring you into interview, they may be less selective in who they interview R3. They still in theory have the same number of AdCom members available to interview in R3 as they did in previous rounds. You also have to keep in mind that most schools have waitlisted candidates R1 and R2 to whom they compare R3 candidates....and in most cases there is a bias against R3 candidates if there is a similar candidate that took the initiative to apply early.

R3 is not impossible but I think it's safe to say that even with an interview it's an uphill battle.

I agree with you...it makes sense,,,just one thing makes me feel optimistic

After r1 and r2 decisions, they have a pretty god picture of their class, they know what they have and what they are lacking...

I agree that there is no cost for the adcom to interview people, however I do believe they consider the cost that is implied in an on-campus interview, specially for international students...so i dunno, I just think (maybe hope) that the adcom takes r3 invites with a "dont invite them unless they have a real chance" mindset

My guess is (and i accept that as an r3 applicant is completely biased)

Round 3 is a longshot vs r1 and r2....getting an interview in r3 is much more difficult that in r1 and r2....however applicants lucky enough to get invited to interview in r3 (they only take on-campus interviews) probably might have bigger chances than r2 and r1....
