Here are my answers to your questions:
- You should apply when you feel your application is most ready. Do not be concerned about applying to round 2 as opposed to round 1. The only exception to this rule is that you should not apply to the last round.
- At this point, you should address your undergraduate record in your essays. This case study of a candidate with a low GPA should be of help: http://www.stacyblackman.com/comprehens ... ies/case5/
