Late Round 1 Versus Early Round 2? [#permalink] New post 23 Sep 2010, 20:36
As the title states, is there an acceptance rate or bias difference between applying at the end of Round 1 versus the beginning of Round 2? Particularly in Harvard and Columbia's cases?

Thanks.

There is no difference between the first two rounds -- for schools with more than two rounds (which means every school except for Sloan and Columbia).

Since Sloan and Columbia only have 2 rounds -- you would be wise to apply in the first round.

Columbia uses Rolling Admissions rather than true rounds. In other words, they start considering your application when you submit it (in theory).
