B-Schooled Podcast Episode #71: Round 1 vs. Round 2


With Round 1 deadlines looming just around the corner, there are always a lot of questions about the differences, advantages, and disadvantages between rounds. This means there will also be a lot of opinions out there—some from trustworthy sources, and others from people who actually have no insight into the admissions process whatsoever.

This episode tries to dispel rumors and shed light on the differences between Round 1 and Round 2, whether or not there is an advantage to applying in either round, and what the single most important factor should be in choosing when to apply.
