Hi friends!
Is it a good idea to apply in the 3rd round?
- Schools I want to apply HBS, Stanford, MIT, Columbia.
- I am from Peru, 31 years. I was the best student in my class during college. (We don't have GPA, but based on that, I suppose it is 4.0)
- I have another excellent academic credentials such as: I was the best student in two courses in which participated students from different universities. Also, my thesis research to graduate got the highest qualification.
- I have work experience in: 1) Economic Research in a Think Tank, 2) Banking, and 3) Government: (I designed financial programs to small business and exporters, partiicipated in foreing trade agreements negotations with other countries, designed measures to help my country during the financial crisis, etc) I think I have great experience.
- Leadership activities / Support to my comunity: I founded two organizations during college: one of the composed by students of diferent universities. / I left my job in the bank to work in the government to help my country to reduce the poverty and help small companies.
- I will take the GMAT on late October. My desired score is 730. I think I will do it well. However, I think that I won't have enough time to study for the TOEFL or the IELTS. :s That's why I would like to know, based on my profile, whether it would be a good idea to apply in the third round.
Thanks!

The third round is a very long shot, and in the schools you mentioned maybe very very. You really should have something totally exceptional in your profile to apply R3, Especially as an international applicant. What you might want to do instead is wait a bit. If you are interested in European MBA schools, you can start applications in January February. And then I would suggest aiming for next year for US schools.
