Hey all,

I'm a non-US (Canadian) applicant to various b-schools in the US (Duke, UCLA, Cornell, Michigan, Yale). I've read numerous posts on here about the debate of Round 1 vs Round 2 schools, and it appears that there isn't much of a difference between the first two rounds.

However, is this still the case for non-US (international) applicants who are applying to US schools? I always thought Round 1 was a do-or-die for international students, because of Visa issues, but would I be at a significant disadvantage by applying in Round 2 to the schools mentioned above?

No no. That is the difference between round two and round three (where anyhow international applicants can STILL apply), and anyhow although I always recommend applying as early as possible, as a Canadian, I think even R3 is doable (I mean as a last resort).
