I was going through an old Sep 09 thread in BW (http://forums.businessweek.com/n/pfx/fo ... &tid=77187)

It seems historically most of the invites go out on the last 2-3 days. And Indians, irrespective of their location, usually fall in this lot. So a wait for another 8-9 days.

The other worrying factor for me at this point of time is the cost. Post S&P US downgrade Indian Rupee has weakened by around 11% meaning a 11% rise in cost for people based out of India. Financing would be surely be a huge issue. :(

Well.. Hope this makes u feel better.. I got a similar email from my admission coordinator clarifying details 5 days before I got an interview invite from her. So I reckon it's prolly the same in your case.

I'm worried about this as well. There has been a very big fall in the value of INR compared to one year ago. Im hoping things improve by the time we have to start paying our deposits and other fees (esp if we end up taking loan from an Indian bank.

Without going into the specifics, can you tell what is the nature of clarification that the adcom is seeking.

The adcom could not see some employment details that were asked in the Application.

Hey everyone! I am currently working on my R2 application. It seems like I am the only candidate from Mainland China... You all have super impressive profile! And sadly, even though ppl are saying this term's post is kinda of slow, this is by far the most active post I find regarding INSEAD application! Therefore I am asking some silly little questions here...

Since INSEAD does not require CV, I wonder how everyone incorporate every bit of your useful information in the profile section of the application pdf? For instance, I have no clue where to put my professional qualification as a CPA. Should I put it under 'Academic background'? 'Activities & Interest'? There are many achievements that are difficult to describe in that tiny 'Activity' box!! :( Did anyone upload his/her CV on the online supporting doc system anyway?

Btw, am I understanding correctly that GMAT and language score reports mailed by GMAC and respective exam offices to INSEAD are not mandatory for application review purpose? Can I only upload scan copies of these score reports on the online supporting doc system, and have the respective exam offices mail the reports once I am admitted by INSEAD?

Thx everyone! Best luck of interview invites for R1 applicants, and hope to hear something from R2 buddies!

Hi!

I guess the second best place to mention your qualification is essays. Eg. I had CFA qualification, which I mentioned in my career progression essay, to show how it helped me professionally. Otherwise, you can also put it under academics, but in that case, I believe you will have to send transcripts for that. Alternately, you may also use optional essay for professional qualifications as well as extracurriculars.

Yes, you can upload the scanned copies online, but the link for uploading would be available only after you submit the application.

Cheers

If you are looking for a loan from prodigy finance, I believe it would be Euro denominated, and therefore doesnt really matter. I guess taking a loan from Indian banks would not make sense, atleast if the current interest rates are maintained for next year or so.

Ur right...in my case I was also considering SBI loan to atleast partly finance the cost..But of course conversion to euros is ok..but dollars are going to be expensive..

But EUR INR also has had the same currency movement as USD INR (in fact more adverse). So in my opinion the effect on cost has been the same.

Anyhow, the decision to apply to a prestigious institute like INSEAD cannot be driven by currency movements :)

Any more interview invites on the forum??? I do not see the table in Pg 1 getting updated. Can I request people who have got their invites to update the table so that we get a good picture...

Well what I meant was that if you take a Euro loan, it does not matter, what the exchange rate is, as you will not have to convert INR to Euro..

No invite for me till now.. keeping fingers crossed..

You should be happy man!! your entire country quota is still vacant. I would have been worried if 3 Indians had received calls. The fact that none of the Indians have received calls till now, makes me rather happy.. :)

I don't think INSEAD is able to manage the schedule of 1000+ alumni interviewers.

First, they send you the email and then they try to match 2 alumni to your profile. You have to check the availability and schedule the meetings yourself.

In my case, I got the invite one week ago and still don't have the contact details of my interviewers.

Cheers!

Yup...after so much waiting, I got my interview invite. My adcom is Jasmine.

Here is my profile again:

Quote:
Vietnamese male, 27, 680 in GMAT(Verbal: 73%, Quant 77%, Writing 91%) >> this is as low as it gets without a retake I think );
Education profile: High schooled in India, bacherlor's degree in Economics and French from a U.S. liberal arts college, half a year exchange in Université de Nantes, and Audencia, France.
Professional profile: one year in an e-learning start-up in the Silicon valley, one year in a top-4 US consulting firm, 2.5 years in a Japanese consulting confirm (my present job).
Post-INSEAD plan: return to Vietnam (finally!) and make some money (maybe hedge fund or private equity?)
Languages: more or less fluent in Vietnamese, English, French, Japanese

Hobbies: Music (classically trained in piano for 12 years, + guitar & harmonica self-learned), movies (umm...I have a collection of over 1000 movies), games (good starcraft:broodwar player -- level C on iccup), recently I got into amateur photography by purchasing the Canon EOS 550D and some lens.

Nice to meet you all.
