Do I have a shot at applying for Round 3 this year?
In general, we do not recommend individuals apply to the final round for business school. Final rounds for a given school (be it round 3 or round 4) are often challenging because for many schools, this is the time they are focused on completing their class and picking very specific profiles. In addition, if you submit an application in March and are not admitted, you do not have much time to regroup and improve your profile before reapplying in October for the next season.
