I'm busily chipping away at my applications and it's exciting and nerve wracking to watch the people that applied for R1 report their news. Just wondering who will be here waiting with me nervously for the R2 results. Traditionally, more apps are submitted in R2 than R1 right? I wonder if that's the case here, or if I'm the only slacker.

Well... I submitted Cornell to their super early round 1 so should hear back on that next week. I will submit Dartmouth for "November Round" which will report early Jan. The outcome of Cornell will be nice because it will help me to gauge what to do next... If I don't get in I'll apply to Michigan, Duke, and maybe even Kelly to be safe. If I get into Cornell and get some $than I will apply to a few reach schools for R2. It seems like a reasonable strategy for me. I'm concerned with going to business school someplace good and if I get in someplace good that I am happy with like Cornell I'll apply to some reaches (UChicago, Wharton) and if I do not get into them I will be happy with my first admit. I'm not going to spend my whole life applying in the hopes of getting into a number 8 ranked school rather than a 15th ranked school.

I think it is okie if you take Toefl before the deadline. Just let the adcoms know, and update your score later.

Cornell deposit is due Jan 16, one day prior to the HBS notification date. (Thats how I remember it). It's usually only about$1000, so if you really end up eating it, it's not a ton of money (relative to the total cost at least).

This is essentially my thinking. If Cornell rejects me, it seems unlikely Kellogg Harvard or Chicago will accept me. With that in mind, I applied ot Cornell's R1 because I will know so early from them - early enough to consider throwing down a few other applications for R2 if need be. If Cornell accepts, I plan on waiting on Kellogg and Chicago (January 4 and Jan 7 decisions). If they reject, I'll re-apply part time. If that fails too, I'll decide what to do at that point.

Does anyone know of a site that lists the deadlines for all top 25 schools in a nice clean table? It would be helpful to able to see them one after another.

Yea, this is me. I've got everything riding on just four applications right now. I've been debating preparing my part time applications for Kellogg and GSB now so that if I do get a reject I can hit submit ASAP afterwards.
