i think second round is better than first round.

Not sure about this. Any source for that info?

On the Kellogg website it says:

"All applicants are considered equally; however, the earlier you apply, the greater chance we can accommodate your interview preference.

If you’re an international applicant, we encourage you to apply in Round 1 or 2 to allow time for your visa application."

Stacy B. (admissions consultant) says:
All things being equal, round 1 may be a bit of a smarter strategy. At the beginning of round 1, all of the seats in the class are available. At the beginning of round 2, a bunch of seats have already been given away, and you are also competing with those on the waitlist. But then of course, there are those who say that all of the top candidates are applying in round 1—and you are up against the toughest competition. So then, maybe it is best to apply round 2. Hmmm…this is confusing…

The earlier the better, in virtually all cases. The earlier you apply, the more likely you are to be eligible for more financial aid money. Often, in later rounds, financial aid money is exhausted.

The only reason I can think that the later rounds are better is if a school didn't get enough applicants or enough well-qualified applicants in the first round. I wouldn't bank on that, though.

I found a good article on Businessweek about the advantages of applying in round 1:
