Advice please - defer INSEAD offer [#permalink] New post 08 Nov 2013, 20:40
Hi gmatclub community,

I am looking to transition from consulting into finance after INSEAD and I have received an interview invite from INSEAD for the August intake. However, I just recently learned that it would be very hard to enter banking because they primarily recruit from summary internships which are only available to January intake students.

In this case, I am very tempted to defer the INSEAD offer so that I can participate in the summary internship. What would be my chance of getting a deferral approved?

Thanks for the help!!

from the INSEAD website:

Can I defer admission?

In the large majority of cases, no. You should apply for the intake in which you intend to enrol. In truly exceptional circumstances, the Admissions Committee may grant a deferral. All requests should be made in writing and will be reviewed on a case by case basis.

Have you decided what you'll do?

Thanks for the information. I have read that before but it's still hard to get a sense on how hard it would be to obtain a deferral in my case. My thinking is to receive the offer first before making a decision on it.

I don't want to comment on INSEAD's deferral policy, as I have no experience.

But have you thought about doing a pre-mba internship? It will be a solid substitute for the december intake's internship option
