Thanks abhimahna
You better be right(off course you are)

After reviewing your post and staring at it for like 30 minutes -> I just edited the crap outta my essay to answer what they say with succinctness.
It looks dope.


Another one for you guys -> USC R3 app deadline is in March.
Being an Indian should I even bother applying?

What about other schools ?

Is there any school who is know to be "kind" to applicants in R3?
I mean they might as well take me without offering any money and I am not moving until I get some scholarship assistance.

Thoughts ?

Looking forward to your replies

Sorry for the below views but I want to be very honest here.

I would never prefer to go for R3. R3 is mostly for domestic applicants. Probability of getting in for a profile like yours is 0.00000000000000000001.

It's better to apply early or to wait for a year than to waste your chances in R3 and hence running to find out points to write that reapplicant essay.

Do it now or next year. Keep R3 out of your mind.

Worst case scenario: If you still wanna apply, talk to current students/admission committee and seek their advice. I doubt they would deny my views.

All the best :)

Lol, I can expect this comment only from a non-indian. It's a different story for us mate. I wish your comments hold true for us.

Nationality does matter alot my friend , especially for us. :)

I couldn't Freaking agree more if wanted to!
I knew it. In the chatroom I am always the first to suggest No R3 for Indians.
But needed someone to tell me. So thanks for that :cool:

I wouldn't want to mess up my apps next year. Freaking reapplications.No.No.No.

What are your thoughts on R2 and for schools such as Smith which has 5-6 deadlines (no shit) ?. I have lined up three schools-> Questrom, Madison and off course Notre Dame. Thinking about a couple of others too.

Really want that Notre dame app to come through. Its a bit of a mess thus far, but I have some time.What I know is-> I am not moving my butt until I get a decent scholarship

Man, its a god-damn shame that I cannot apply to USC(which I like just because I am a hustler and they love hustlers), Vandy (it has a lot of extracurricular shit going on hence my liking) and Georgia tech this year.


Maybe I will look back on this post an year later and thank you :cool:


One screwed up year.

I think you have a very good score. If you can strengthen your essays and other components on time, apply to as many schools in R2 as you can. You can have a good shot. I am not sure about the schools you mentioned but I would say if they have so many rounds and you are somewhere in the middle of the rounds, go for it without a second thought. Obviously, you are not applying at the very end. You missed a couple of schools deadline but that's not the end of the game. Keep trying until you succeed. But make sure you are not applying to any School in the final round. Take the decisions logically.

Remember : Everything happens for a reason ;)

Quick Query everyone ->

Does the date of the interview matter?

I have a chance to book the interview for questrom (BU) from tomorrow to Feb 15.
If I book on feb 14 and say someone books the date for Jan 25

Does this impact the scholarship?
My thinking is that its R2 and the schools are already short on cash.
BU is super quick to review candidates and the sooner they review the better the chances of securing a funding,

What do you guys think ?

1) Schedule your interview ONLY when you feel you will be ready for it. Doing well in a late interviews is ALWAYS preferable to bombing an earlier interview.
2) Generally speaking, the fin aid is decided on many factors, and time of interview within the same round is not a factor.

Good Luck

While I do agree with whatever has been mentioned in the above post, I would still prefer you to take the interview somewhere in the middle than setting it up at the very end.

Consider it in this way. I have to take 100 interviews. Since I am just beginning, I am more active listening to everyone and more engaged. I found 10 candidates who are capable. Now, I am approaching towards the end, I would be very tired and it may happen I have raised my expectations based on my past experiences. So, if you don't meet what I am looking for now, I will not accept you. But that doesn't mean you should give interview without proper preparation. Prepare well and try to not to delay till the end.

All the best :)
