Applying to Insead in R1 or R2 [#permalink] New post 22 Mar 2012, 22:53
Are there any advantages to applying to INSEAD in Round 1 vs Round 2?

The website says competition on each round is equal - but though I am not the typical Indian-Singaporean IT female (I am in marketing BTW) , I still think my background might be over-represented.

I haven't prepared any essays for R1 yet, but I do have the essays from my previous b-school apps & recommendation letters as well.

Any advice?

All schools say that round one equals round two, and they are close, but applying round one is almost always better. As for your "typical profile", thankfully you are not male! :) that should work in your favor.

be careful with reusing essays. INSEAD's essays are different and unique. sure you can reuse and rehash parts of it. but there will be considerable time investment in coming up with a competitive application. don't hurry up for round 1. take your time and prepare your best application if you are serious about INSEAD.

There is in fact NO advantage to be gained from applying to an earlier round at INSEAD.

Hope this helps.
