This post received KUDOS
R1, R2, etc., refer to the deadlines for specific schools. the general consensus is that applying before the school's first deadline (R1) offers the best chance of getting in, although that's not so clear to me any more. i do think you get the best chances to get $$$ from schools by applying before the first deadline. most schools have 3 deadlines... applying R3 at these schools is generally not recommended, as most of the spots will have been filled up by then.
