Dear Rad321,

Welcome to GMATClub. :)

I would suggest wait for another year and apply in round 1 or round 2.

In the meantime, you can work to push your score on a upper side or can further improve your profile.

It is next to impossible for an Indian to get admitted in R3 or R4. So, I believe you should not waste your chances and must get yourself prepared for next year.

Well, if you are focused on Europe, you will have many options, as there are many schools that have Spring/January intakes (like INSEAD, IE, HEC) in which you can apply in Round 1.

If you need more advice, feel free to drop us a line: http://admissionado.com/free-consultati ... n=mba_blog

Best,

If I do apply in r3/r4, will it make it difficult for me NEXT year? (considering I'll be a re applicant then?)

Yes, that is one of the issues.

First B Schools usually do not prefer to take International applicants in R3 as it causes Visa Delay Issues.

Second, you are making yourself a re applicant for next year by applying in R3. In that case you would have to do more homework to justify yourself on what has changed since you last applied.

Hello Rad321

Even we advise that you wait for R1 next year. Don't waste your chances and money (very important) in R3 and R4. They are mostly reserved for locals.

Please feel free to get in touch with us regarding assistance with your application.

Thanks, I hope creating an account to start the application does not count.
How about NUS MBA, the deadline is March 31.

Hi Rad321,

There are some European/ Singapore/ Canadian colleges that still have their early application deadlines open (or about to open) in the next 3-4 months.

Do you have specific colleges in mind?

NUS applications open in October and several Indians apply from then until January 31st when the R1 cycle closes. I'd consider it a little late to apply there.

Hi there,
If you are still considering applying this year, you can find a list of late deadlines for September 2017 & January 2018 intakes here:

I'm afraid the choir is singing the truth here... very difficult in R3 and 4 but if you want to pursue it, then look to programs where your stats are above the average for the programs as you can sometimes get lucky in later rounds if yield is not going well for a program and perhaps they will snatch you up if you are indeed above average in their pool.
