A KCOM representative came to our school the other day, and one the things she said as we were discussing applications was that if I think that I'm a less than competitive applicant then I would be better off applying later-in Sept/Oct. She said that this is because generally the first wave of applicants they get are stellar and that compared to them I might not look as good. What to make of this? Is this true for other schools? This definitely goes against a lot of what I've been told.
