Round 3 vs Round 2? [#permalink] New post 21 Dec 2009, 09:36
Hey guys just wondering if you think applying in Round 3 really dampens your chances of getting in? It would really help me if I could apply to round 3, since I just got my GMAT score and I really don't have much time left for Round 2. But I do hear Round 3 becomes tougher to get in? Any thoughts? Thanks!

Round 3 is much more difficult. The standard bit of advice here is to go for round 1 or round 2 unless you absolutely have no choice.

well, even though I myself applied R3 last year..I will tell you to apply to R2. R3 is just very hard, schools only have 10-15 seats to fill in r3

Probably also depends on how many rounds there are. For example, Cornell has 4 rounds. Rd 2/3 in that case probably doesnt matter much. Rd 4 is pushing it.

Hey folks!

So, to start off, yes, it is a lot harder to apply in Round 3 vs. Round 2. There are fewer spots, which means adcoms can be even pickier about who they admit. [Which is hard to imagine, since it seems they've been quite picky aaaaall along.] Even more, if you DON'T get admitted in R3, you have another challenge in trying to re-apply in Round 1 next year. After all, how can you prove you're a stronger applicant this time around when it's only been 5 months since the last time?

See? That's why we aaaalways push our clients to apply in earlier rounds.

But if you missed R2 and want to start an MBA program in 2012, Round 3 IS possible. It's just....a challenge. There are specific things you need to know and to do in order to put your best foot forward. If you're considering Round 3, you definitely also want to consider our upcoming "The Art of the Round 3 Application" webinar. [It's free!] We're gonna talk numbers, strategy, and anything else YOU need to know to succeed in Round 3.

Get all the details here: http://www.precisionessay.com/2012/01/t ... ister-now/

We'll 'see' you on the 24th, ya?
