I know it is quite late to ask this...but, better than never....

Here are some facts that prompted me to ask this question...please correct me if....

1) Very slim chances of getting through R3
2) R2 usually has maximum number of apps
3) applying in next year's R1 is better than this years R3 (to avoid re-applicant status)

So, what is R2?

Is it R1 for schools that have an EA round and R2 for schools that don't have EA?

For example: Would you consider Jan 7th Deadline for Duke as R3 or R2 deadline - coz they have an EA round as well.

It depends on the school.

For schools that have a definite "early application" round, like Duke, then it doesn't count as R1. Same with Tuck. If you read through the Tuck thread, you'll see that Tuck only gets a little over 100 apps in EA. So that's only 10% or so of all the apps received. Most apps are received in the next two rounds (Nov and Jan for Tuck).

In Cornell's case, they have an Oct, Nov, Jan and March round. The Jan round is pretty much an R3 round, very few spots are available.
