Well, it's looking mighty good from here. you got the grades, the rocking GMAT, nice work, and so on.

H/S/W are within your reach.

The big question is I guess when to apply. And if you aren't in a rush for any reason, I'd say wait till next year. That way you can apply R1, give yourself a ton of time to make the best possible essays and application, and think things through right. If you are in a rush, then I'd day it's about time to get started.

Thank you so much for the encouragement! I'm debating whether to apply this year R2 or to wait. Will make up my mind soon - and I have to. Thanks again.
