Significance of applying to a specific round of admission? [#permalink] New post 27 Aug 2013, 08:31
Hello,
I am just starting with GMAT preparation so please bare with me for my novice question.

I intend to do MS in corporate finance. I saw different rounds with dead lines on different university web pages. Also talked with few admission officers from 2/3 colleges and they said if you apply to round 1 your probability of getting admitted is high. So I was curious about the significance of applying in different rounds.

Also does it have impact on getting scholarship?

Thanks in advance,
Shilpa

For qustions about timing, especially R1 vs R2, please see
MBA Admission: The Great Round 1/Round 2 Fight.

Usually there is less scholarship money to go around in the later rounds. But first you need to get in with an optimized app.

Best,
Linda
