I was dinged by some universities last year. A promotion... salarly increase and year later do you think reapplicants have a higher chance of getting in? how do adcoms treat reapplicants?

I think in general, re-applicants fare better in their second year - but more because they're more familiar with the process and what schools are looking for and so can prepare a better application. If you basically submit the same application, you can expect the same result.

I would say it depends. According to the BW profiles for Ross. 20% acceptance rate overall, 10% acceptance rate for reapplicants. So that says it is harder. But you have to consider people who got denied the first time all had something wrong with their app so it would depend how "close" they were or not. So if you feel you greatly enhanced your profile, I would say yes, since you really show interest in their program. However , it still all could come down to your demographic/industry profile since those are the people you are competing with.

Personally I believe that as long the re-applicant shows interest and improvement, he/she has better chances on his/her 2nd attempt.

Here is chat transcrip related to reapplicant advantage/disadvantge to top MBA programs:

Also, just looking through Admissions411, you can see alot of reapps having a better second go around.

I think re-applicants on their face don't necessarily get a better look from schools. In fact I think the onus is on the applicant to prove there has been an improvement in their profile from one year to the next. However, I do think after going through the application cycle and experiencing the process, applicants tend to pull together applications given its their second time around. But the most important factor is showing progress in the quality of your candidacy
