Wharton strongly recommends students to apply in the first two rounds because a good portion of class gets selected in first two rounds leaving a little room for applicants in the third round. However, third round is recommended for the strongest applicants. Lauder applicants are accepted in Round 1 and 2 only, to meet the early program start date of May 4, 2009.
