Nobody knows the ground rules for the next round of applications. 

Having a partner who understands and follows the domain industry to help with the 300+ page guide book (based on past process) on submitting your application will help ensure your success. Acquiring the rights to your gTLD is much more than submitting an application. Part of the application process includes proving you have the ability to run the technical infrastructure, support for a safe and secure registry and a having a good plan for success.
