PROFILE:
Personal: 25, Male, India
GMAT score: 770, Q50 and V44. IR - 8/8. AWA - 5
Undergrad: B. Engg, Tier Two college from India, 9/10(3.6/4)
Work Ex: 3 years 3 months(as of now) in Goldman Sachs, Technology division. Work-ex is good, been working with Stock Exchanges and Teams all across the world. I have been handling multiple responsibilities and important projects at the workplace, and have good reviewers to back it up.
Cofounded a startup in college(defunct now), no great extracurriculars otherwise.
Post-MBA goals: Product Manager in FinTech at New York/Silicon Valley/London

Applied to Cornell in Nov Round last year, got interviewed and dinged

QUERY:
Haven't been promoted till now(minimum is 3 years for undergrads), and have a promotion due this December to the next role, which is certain. Have kept most of my colleges to R2, given the promotion. However for Cornell, given that I am a reapplicant, thinking of applying to R1 itself. Can someone advise on this, please?
General profile reviews are welcome too.

Hi,
I'd advise you to apply on the 2nd Round to demonstrate what's changed in your life (promotion) and take your time to develop new post-MBA goals and good arguments for your choice of goals.
