I REALLLY want to go to business school this year.
I've already applied to Kellogg (one-year progr) for round 2.
Based on my stats, I think I can aim for a top-tier business school...
Do you think it would be worth my time/money to apply for H/S/W this year? What programs have the best chance for round 3 admission?
None of these 3 programs have a good chance of acceptance round 3. It isn't impossible, but it is more difficult and less likely round 3 than earlier rounds.
You certainly have a competitive profile for Kellogg, but you don't have a guarantee of acceptance. If you really wan to start b-school this year, you should apply next round. And if you want to apply to H/S/W, then by all means do so, but also apply to excellent schools that aren't H/S/W and that do support your goals.
What do you want to do after you MBA?
