I'm applying to a couple of schools in R2 - Darden for sure, and possibly Yale or Ross. Still have a bit of research to do...


You're insane...I swear every school-specific thread I read you mention already having submitted an app there! Great work and thanks for being an inspiration for getting these done :)

lol TL! no it's just that I have a pretty random profile (good gmat, good work exp, eh ExtaC, really bad gpa) so it's really hard figuring out which schools I have a shot at and which I don't. Even speaking with some of the experienced members here and consultants and alumni, etc - I get different answers from everyone about the feasbility of admission! So I'm just covering a wide spread :)

Which schools in the UE/E tiers are you not applying to? I think the only ones I haven't seen you hit are UCLA, Berkeley, and Cornell.

I know I'm being lazy, but anyone done the date logistics for the top 20 schools? For example, I presume certain schools' R1 final decision date is earlier than some R2 deadlines. Anyone waiting to hear back from R1s and working it out so that you can still have time to do R2 for others if rejected?

Chicago and Wharton should let everyone know by the end of December.

Harvard, Stanford, and MIT will not release anything until January.

Kellogg will release decisions on a rolling basis. All Columbia ED people should know where they stand by end of December.

And lastly, Tuck EA applicants will know where they stand in mid-December, but November round applicants won't know until early February.

I don't plan on hitting R2 at all but.....You will hear about most of your interview invites before Rd 2 deadlines (Nov & Dec) so you can base your chance of admission on that. (unless you get really unlucky, or are a horrible interviewer)

Also Chicago and Wharton give out decisions same day (12/18)


I think Wharton releases on 12/22....

I applied to HBS, Wharton, and Chicago GSB in Round 1. I am still debating which schools, if any, I will apply to in Round 2. I am contemplating submitting applications to Stanford GSB and MIT, but have heard that the Round 2 admissions chances for either school are basically nil. I will probably put together an application to Kellogg and send it in, but again, I'm still undecided.

There's still time for both of these schools in R1.
