If any of you can answer the following questions, I'd be grateful.

1. If an applicant applies in the Early Bird Round and gets an admit, does that mean he/she can NOT apply to other colleges ?
2. What if the applicant applies to two schools and gets an admit from both (assuming ad coms are not connected by some magic internal network) ?
3. What are the advantages of Early Bird vs R1 ? If i apply in the Early Bird does it mean that I will get a Yes/No reply sooner than R1 applicants ?
4. Additionally, do early bird applicants get any preference for scholarships over R1 folks? Assuming I apply early, will my application still be considered in R1 if the adcoms are not sure about my app ?
5. As it is the INR pales in comparison to the USD, making us Indian applicants save that much more for B school. When I was thinking about hiring an admissions consultant, it dint take me long to do the math to realize that hiring one meant I would have to let go of 2 applicants (at the least). Anybody out there who can throw in your $0.02 ?
6. Does one need to put in GPA into the resume; don't we provide that through the transcripts ?

Thanks in advance.

Adcoms are not comparing admit lists, so if you apply to 2, they won't know, and honestly you should apply to more than one school even if one is an "early bird" round. Obviously the few schools that have these "early bird" rounds are seeking applicants that have genuinely prioritized their school as a top choice. That being said, there will be applicants using those rounds on the assumption that the admit rates are higher. Each school will tell you when you will hear the final result, but it is usually quicker for "early bird" rounds, and certainly before round 2. cheers, Alex

If any of you can answer the following questions, I'd be grateful.





1. If an applicant applies in the Early Bird Round and gets an admit, does that mean he/she can NOT apply to other colleges ? Yes if it is binding then you cannot apply to any other college.


2. What if the applicant applies to two schools and gets an admit from both (assuming ad coms are not connected by some magic internal network) ? Yes you can get an admit from 2 schools at the same time but adcoms arent connected.


3. What are the advantages of Early Bird vs R1 ? If i apply in the Early Bird does it mean that I will get a Yes/No reply sooner than R1 applicants ? Less number of applicants therefore more chances of getting in.


4. Additionally, do early bird applicants get any preference for scholarships over R1 folks? Assuming I apply early, will my application still be considered in R1 if the adcoms are not sure about my app ? Yes they do


5. As it is the INR pales in comparison to the USD, making us Indian applicants save that much more for B school. When I was thinking about hiring an admissions consultant, it dint take me long to do the math to realize that hiring one meant I would have to let go of 2 applicants (at the least). Anybody out there who can throw in your $0.02 ? NA


6. Does one need to put in GPA into the resume; don't we provide that through the transcripts ? Need not mention in resume





Thanks in advance.
