Any suggestions of R1 gives a better chance, than R2 and R3/ It almost looks like ED round. My profile is 12 yrs exp, 740, 33 yrs, 3.8 GPA, India. I would prefer R2 as I am running short of time for Oct 14 deadline. Wondering whether to rush my application now or plan for R2.

It is best to apply when your confident of your application. In R1 you may have some advantage but if you're not fully satisfied with your essays, it might be worthwhile applying in R2. Till last year, the no. of students accepted in both rounds was almost the same. That said, considering you're an Indian, it makes sense not to apply post R2 since after that only few seats are left.

I am not sure whether this would help, but I applied in R2 and received an admit.

I actually heard an interesting fact the other day from the MBA director. LBS receives most applications in R2, which is not surprising, but he said that more applications are received in R3 than R1! But there were at least 2-3 times more offers given out in R1 than R3. So always avoid R3 (and of course R4). As to R1 vs. R2; in R1 your chances tend to be better (last year roughly ~180 offers in R1 vs. roughly ~220 offers in R2, but we know that LBS receives way more applications in R2).

Agree though with trump, apply when you can present the best application possible.
