When Should I Apply?
To avoid overwhelming server traffic generated by the high volume of applications we receive, candidates are encouraged to submit their application as early as possible prior to the deadline of each round. We encourage applicants to apply in the first or second round, as space in the class may be limited by the third round. In addition, applying in the earlier rounds will give candidates more time to address the following issues:
•International candidates needing visas will find that applying in Round 3 makes the timing of their visa application stressful.
•International candidates admitted in Rounds 1 and 2 find that it’s helpful to have the additional time to work on English proficiency.

そして、Selecting an Application Roundについては下記のコメントが掲載されています。
Though you may apply in any one of the three application rounds each year, we suggest you apply only when you feel your application is as strong as it can be.If you plan to apply in round one or two, we strongly encourage you to apply in round one. Over the last few years, the number of applications we receive in round two has increased, making it more competitive.
Do not rush your application, but submitting it earlier is better. While we admit outstanding individuals in all three rounds, there are some advantages to applying in either the first or second round, including:
・The ability to receive a need-based financial aid award from the Financial Aid Office prior to the date by which you must respond to your offer of admission.
・Ample time to complete recommended quantitative and/or language coursework prior to arrival on campus.
・Access to the on-campus housing lottery and/or Schwab Residential Center housing.
・Sufficient time to complete the visa application process (international students).
・The opportunity to attend Admit Weekend (there is no Admit Weekend for Round 3
