Hi Husayn87, what is your profile if you don't mind sharing? If you are looking for scholarship then I would strongly recommend to apply next year R1 or R2.

to be fair, if Husayn87 doesn't want to wait, and doesn't mind the 200 euro application fee, he can always try to get in this year (considering GMAT is the only thing pending, meaning he did the work on the essays already). If he needs a scholarship and doesn't get one he can always decline this year and let them know he'll try again next year.

I am not sure if declining this year and again trying next year would help his case. I don't think it would go down well with admissions if you first decline what they offered and then you apply again. If you mean deferral then not sure if they allow you to apply for scholarship next year.

Round 2 applicant here - does anyone know roughly when we could be expecting interview calls?
It's been only a week since application deadline, but would be good to know !

you have a point, to be fair, best course of action, wouldn't be to ask on this forum, but ask his admissions associate director.
if he has the application ongoing, he should be in contact with somebody:
- lay out the issue, and ask for input
they are in the best position to tell you what to do in your situation.

Agree to your point on connecting with adcom. Pretty comprehensive way to look at it.
