Congratz Man! I guess you are the first Indian to report a call on this forum. (I presume you are an Indian :)).

What time did you get the call? And was it a phone call or email?

Hi there,

actually, we had 1 indian already during our assessment day. To give you an idea on the rest, we were a Bulgarian girl based in Holland, a Spanish (work experience in France and Germany), an Italian, a Portuguese (working in Switzerland), an Indian (sailor in the past, working in India at present), a Korean Russian (based in the UK, work experience in the US and UK) a Lebanese Senegalese working in Congo (work experience in the UK, Senegal and Congo).

The assessment day was a full-blown assessment with a 1 hour interview, a case study discussion and individual impromptu presentation and lunch with alums. Current students could not join as they were busy completing an assignment, many working trough the night to present it to a jury panel.

IMD has promised to get back to us with the results on March 21st.

For those who haven't been to Lausanne, if you stay in a hotel you are given a free transport card for all public transport. The easiest way to get to IMD is to take the metro which terminates at Ouchy. From there, walk to your right and IMD's campus is within 5 minutes walk, not far from the Mauvenpick and Aulac hotels. The metro station is right across from the train station, look for a blue "M" sign.

Good luck to all applicants with the interview!

Good luck to all the candidates who were interviewed. It seems being Indian does not help when you apply to IMD :-)

Still no call.

I thought it's the end of journey for me, but the fact that you and another member have been invited yesterday, my hope has been re-kindled.. Since technically 6 weeks from the 1st Feb deadline are over, I believe the final wave of invites as well as dings is expected soon. Keeping my fingers crossed :)

Glad that information from me gave you additional hope. :) In fact I think you still have your chance as the adcom members are likely to process the applications continuously, hence if they not gave you any feedback yet, it only means that the review of your application is not finalized at the moment. Sure, it is more uncertain and thus worse than positive news, but it is much better than certainly negative result. :wink: I believe they'll contact you in the nearest future, so keep fingers crossed and you'll get that so awaited call. :-D

technically you have a few more hours left. The 6 week period is not over yet. IMD's adcom said, in their official thread here, that if you haven't heard from them, that means you profile is still being evaluated.

"It ain't over until its over". :-D

does anyone know whether there is any co-relation between application date and interview call date? I mean, if you submit application earlier and if your profile is good, will you receive interview call earlier?????

I guess they are trying to group candidates from different backgroup/nationalities on a same day evaluation so at to get the orginal IMD experience as close as possible. And they are sending the application based on how long it may take us to process the Swiss Visa. And it could be also based on when you submitted; and if we submit early, they could have read your files early.

These are just my guesses.
