April Round? [#permalink] New post 14 Feb 2010, 17:11
Hi,
I know that any round after January/February is considered "too late" to get admitted to an U.S. school. But life is tough sometimes, and it happens that I am contemplating to send my application to Tuck in the April round.

I'd be really curious if anyone has experiences with how to best manage applying in round 3 (or 4, if you count the EA), especially in the context of Tuck?

Thanks.

Which schools to apply to in R3? [#permalink] New post 18 Feb 2010, 19:39
I'm thinking of applying to a few schools in R3. I know that it's usually application suicide in R3, but if there're schools that have special rounds, I would be interested in looking into it. So far I've decided to apply to Tepper, which has 5 rounds. Are there other ranked schools that have R3 that do not necessarily put the applicant at a significant disadvantage? Thank you in advance.

I had this exact same discussion with somebody who got into LBS and MIT in R3 a couple years ago. She said the below -

1. Apply R3 only if you must go to school now, and absolutely cannot wait another year. This is based as much on chances of getting in as other things like scholarships, time-off before school, etc etc.

2. If you must apply R3, make sure you address specifically why you're applying late in the optional essay. And this reason better not be that you simply couldn't be bothered to apply earlier. Or because you got dinged everywhere else and this is last-chance motel.

3. R3 is actually not that much different from R2. If you're a strong applicant, you'll get in just the same. However, at this point, most schools are looking to round off the class composition and have filled most of their cookie-cutter profiles.

Hope this helps. But Milias, dude, we're both so getting into Ross, so don't sweat it. :wink:

Hmm, I would double-check with your friend about this info. MIT Sloan has only 2 rounds, not 3. LBS has 4 rounds, so their R3 is not as bad as R3 at other schools that have only 3 rounds.
