International students at disadvantage applying in round 3? [#permalink] New post 03 Jan 2014, 11:04
Hi,

I was considering applying to the Kellogg-MBA in 3rd round, however, when I noticed this Im considering otherwise:

"International and One-Year students applying in Round 3 will be at a disadvantage. We typically admit all international and One-Year students in Round 1 and Round 2 to allow time for visa processing for international students".

Is this business as normal? Is an international applicant at a disadvantage applying in the third round?

Another question: As Kellogg is ranked somewhere around top 5, how come is the average GMAT here lower than in several other programs lower ranked?

Thank you

You're at a disadvantage if you apply round 3 PERIOD. Most of the class has been filled and virtually all the funding is gone for scholarships. You may be better off waiting and applying round 1 next year.
