Hi All,
I'm from an over-represented group (Indian Males) although I'm not an engineer. Some folks have told me that it is critical to apply in R1 for Indian males.
I guess my question is - what would provide better chances of selection - Application at 80% potential in R1 vs Application at 100% potential in R2?

Current schools of interest can be seen on my profile.
As of now I'm planning MIT Sloan & Ross in R1, and Stanford, Yale, Kellogg & Booth in R2.

I could try to squeeze in Kellogg in R1.. not sure if I should attempt that?

IMO you will have equal chance in both rounds provided you submit your application when it is best. Go through the article - R1 vs R2: The Great Debate - from GMATClub MBA guide for in-depth understanding on how to identify which round is best for you... https://gmatclub.com/forum/new-gmat-clu ... 23494.html

Round 2. Don't rush things. Only apply when your application is perfect.

Best,

We vote for 100% in R2. Over the years we've seen somewhat similar stats for R1 and R2 among our clients, which leads us to believe that there is no substantial advantage for applying in R1, especially if your application is not yet at its best shape. If taking a few more weeks can help you make your application stronger, we believe it is worth it.
