I haven't given my GMAT yet. But planning to give end of september. I know most of the schools have R1 deadlines around mid-october or october end. I am worried that I cannot make it for R1.
Can any one wiegh the pros - cons of applying in Round 1 vs. Round 2.
Or is it certain that applying in round 2 has no advantages at all whatsoever, and students apply in Round 2 only because they cannot make it in time for Round 1?
Sorry if there is already a thread for this one.....
everything is all speculation. If I were you, take your GMAT, if you get a good score, apply to 2 schools rd 1 and the rest rd 2. There is no reason why you couldn't do 2 schools RD 1 even while doing essays. Just make sure you manage your time properly. My personal opinion says RD1 is a better round to apply in because all spots are open and you may the first type of applicant with your background that they see.
