Hi,

I am bit confused over the deadlines,
The thing is I have missed the First round application of the schools I wanted to apply, and deadlines for R2 are in first week of Jan.

Will it make sense to apply in R2 as schools prefer students(international) to apply in R1?

I believe that I can prepare my application for one preffered and one backup school by their R2, shall I put in the application or shall I wait for one more year so that I can apply in R1?

Thanks and Regards,
Just4fun

I don't think most differentiate that much between round 1 and round 2 for international applicants, so I'd definitely go for second round, assuming you can still put your best foot forward. Why wait until next year. You might as well give it a shot now and if it doesn't work out, refine your approach and give it a go next year.

Thanks for your quick response,

A small question: Whom does the ADCOM prefer, first time applicant or a re-applicant?

I don't know if they really have a preference. You could say that they prefer first-time applicants since they don't come with the "baggage" of already having been rejected once. However, a reapplicant who has notably improved his app vs. a year ago (i.e., he's not just applying again without having done anything new or interesting in the past year) should be at no disadvantage vs. a new applicant.
