What about Round 3? [#permalink]

So I've read about trying to apply to the earlier rounds than later. Does anyone have any thoughts about applying to R2 vs R3 (if the school has 4 rounds). The application process is taking longer than I thought - so I probably can't get in to R2. However, if I kill myself over finishing it, I MAY be able to get it into R2. So my question is- should I go for R2 or R3. Does competition get much tougher by R3?

I think later rounds can be more competitive particularly if you have a more conventional profile.

Depends on what the school calls each round.

For example, Tuck and Duke have "early decision" rounds, then three "regular rounds". If you apply in the third round (2nd "regular round"), your chances aren't that much different from the second round.

However, Cornell has four rounds, but the first round is a "regular round". Applying in the third round is very difficult (adcom mentioned this on my visit).

MIT does not have a round 3 and their round 2 is ultra competitive. Even though round competitiveness differs from year to year, it is safe to assume only around 20% seats are left in the final rounds.
