I got the call this morning. Just one week after the interview. I am extremely happy !


Got a seat as well. I was interviewed on March, 28 and got the call on April, 7 ... I'm very likely to accept the offer! (got admitted from Oxford, Cambridge and Insead as well)

Here is my profile:
Italian / Engineer / 32 / 7 yrs of work experience at a major O&G company / GMAT 700

Let me know if you have any question regarding the interview experience ... I definitely think you can prepare for it (also for the impromptu presentation!)


What are the main reasons you are choosing IMD over Oxbridge :)

Many congratulations Andreas. It must be great hearing from IMD. I will ask the same question as Ivan. Why IMD over Insead?

Can you please also share your interview experience? I have heard that it is hectic. Did you interview on campus? Also I would love to hear about your notes on how one should go about preparing for it?

Hello everybody,

Anyone from Argentina that plans to apply?

I present myself. My name is Andres, I come from Argentina. I worked in marketing and came to Europe 5 years ago to do a master degree in Energy. I lived in Spain, Netherlands, France, Italy and now I am working in an energy company in Switzerland. IMD is my main objective and my Gmat score doesn’t help me. I took it some days ago with low score and planning to retake it in next months.

Anybody knows how IMD handle low Gmat scores? They consider the application if interesting and request to re apply to increase the score or which is their approach?

Kind regards,
Manager

For IMD GMAT is not as important as it is for other schools, provided you have a balanced profile (work and international experience). What's your score?

Well, i had the exam last Saturday, it was the first time i took it and i prepear it in 3 month since i wanted to apply to the April dead line. I got 530. At home i had Q40 V22, in the real exam i got Q31 V30. I belive that with some more month i can get over 600, but i dont know how IMD manage this things.


Yes, I would recommend you to get it over 600 and more precisely at least to score 650.

Excellent!!! Many congratulations, Menehn for the interview call and all the best.

So, IMD has already read all the applications. 2 weeks is ultra efficient. The rest of us will keep our fingers crossed.

Thanks anapplicant and shubhamb!! I was suprised yesterday when the lady told me that she was from IMD. I didn't expect it to come so early at all. She also told me that the general rule is 3 - 6 weeks...
Shubham: you can find my profile in page 2.
All the best for you guys, I cross my finger for you and hope see you in Lausanne... :)

menehn ,
congratulations!!!

it is so strange that they start to call so early,
especially if to take in consideration the days of the interwiew more than 1 month after.
Do they expected the answer immediately (about the date), or you told them it later?

Thanks 25340!

I think that you don't have to choose the interview date right away. I dit it because I had my agenda with me...Anyway, IMD asked me to confirm the date once again by email. :)

So no R2 calls/emails today, huh? These admission people are so unkind! :)

It's been three weeks already, I could have processed the whole Whartons 800-people class in this much time! :)

A brief update for those who wait for R2 invites - I just emailed adcom, they said they the interview decision on me won't happen this week. They weren't sure though.
