I think it's not dead, just very few people apply to IMD. According to BW it was 496 submitted applications.

BTW I have not received any news yet.

If you know any other thread about IMD, just share.

Ciao.

Hi,

Indeed, not many replies here. But IMD is a niche MBA, not a factory, so quite normal I guess.

I got a reply pretty much early 3 weeks after the 1st deadline. I will attend the interview 1st Round this month.

What are the news on your side?

Cheers,

I'm sorry @iceman1

With your age (I'm 31), forget about any MBA program apart from IMD or Cranfield or maybe IE, and having said that, I think the GMAT won't help as much as improving in any of the other areas of the application.

Have you considered Cranfield?

I am French/31/Entrepreneur in Telecom/MSc Aerospace Engineering/Lived in US, UK, France, Thailand. I think I have quite an atypical profile. It seems it is what they are looking for. Let's hope for the best.

Just a quick update before i go to bed. We were 8 for this interview day. 2 russians, 2 spaniards, 1 italian, 1 greek, 1 singapourian and myself. It was 9 hours quite intense where you feel you are judged all the time. But at the end of the day, they should not eliminate more than half. And i hope to be in the right part. I ll describe the day a bit more later. Now i just have to wait for the call!

So you think they should leave out 3 of us? Ay ay ...

Also you forgot to comment that maybe we'll be lucky enough to get the news (good or bad) in seven days instead of ten, which would be an extraordinary measure.

Good luck for those having interviews on Tuesday or Friday.

Hi everyone.
Looks like I did the assessment day together with Mertvye and IMD2012T :)

I'm Russian, 29.
MSc. in Economics and Management + Ph.D in Economics (both in Russia)
GMAT 700
8 years of experience in Russian Oil&Gas (mostly Strategy and Business Development). Never worked overseas, but dealed with international projects a lot.

I am re-applicant. Had the first trial in 2009 (1st round as well), was put on a wait list after an interview in March, and rejected finally in October. In 2009 5 people out of 8 were accepted. This time it may be less, because we had people of the same nationalities in the room...

So, waiting for the call...

Сколько лет сколько зим! :-D

Did they mention if there were more Russians/Spaniards in other interview days?

The only thing I remember is that there will be at least 2 days more this week and there should be 4 japaneses.

Bye.

Hi guys,
I am planning to apply in Round 3,
and I am also Russian )))
this fact frightened me a lot, because thre are so many of us.

Actually I was thinking about Round 2,
but need to retake GMAT (620),
it is really strange that when I wrote to the "access you chanses",
adcom told that 620 is totally OK, and I should aply.

Do you have any news?

I had 650 first time and decided to re-take it (IMD average is 670). I did it between submitting an application and the interview, scored 700.
I think that IMD is not the school which look at GMAT much, but it would be better if you try to increase the point - at least it will help you demostrate that you are able to increase your performance.

Taking into account that you're female and all business schools want to have as students as many women as possible it makes sense.

In addition, one of the people I met the other day had 640 (and he was a man).

From my own experience GMAT is not very useful.

But the fact that you're Russian could be an issue if in this intake two (or more) Russians were admitted.

So, my recommendation is to apply in R2 instead of waiting to R3!

They will tell you to redo GMAT if they want to round up their statistics, which other schools do.
