Hi everyone!

I submitted my application for R1 on April 9th for the Jan 2013 intake. I did have some issues with the PDF form, as initially the countries would be completely wrong every time I opened the form (e.g. nationality, where I have lived, etc). Also, once I was ready to submit, the PDF form kept on crashing on my Mac. So, I tried sending it from my work computer (PC), but I had a bit of trouble as I already have an electronic signature there which didn’t seem to satisfy INSEAD’s requirements. It made me a bit nervous, even though I still had two days prior to the deadline, but in the end I managed to send it through, upload the photo, the transcript, and check on the recommenders. I received a confirmation email and a few days later I received an email from Janice Sim confirming review of my application. I had already submitted the GMAT scores via PearsonVue and was told this, plus noting the scores and Q/V in the application form, would suffice (e.g. no need to scan and submit the print out report).

My profile:

Age: 28
GMAT: 700
GPA: 3.1
W/E: 6.5yrs by January 2013 (5 in Singapore, 1.5 in China)
Industry:Mining
Nationality: USA / Netherlands
Countries: Netherlands, Colombia, USA, Canada, Ireland, Singapore, China

Since I am done with the essays and seem to have A LOT of spare time on my hands in the evenings and weekends, I signed up for two pre-MBA courses at UCLA’s Extension school.

By the way, the chart / form on the first page shows 2-3 admits for Jan 2013 intake. How is this possible? Early admission?

Good luck to all!

Hi Xinga

You mean you are waiting for an email from AdCom acknowledging your application or you're waiting for an interview invite? AFAIK, interview invites go out around May 18.

Is May 18 the day all interviews go out (like HBS) or the last day? The Ad Com email suggests the latter, right?
I'm in for R1 as well... and fingers crossed :)

Last year the interview invites started trickling out as early as May 2nd, with the final deadline as 13th May. Was going through last years posts. So we could hear from some early birds in a weeks time!!

Below is the thread to the 2012 INSEAD Jan Entry-R1 interview calls conversation page. The excited souls can clam themselves by going through the below thread! I have already gone through half of it!!:)

I guess we will probably start hearing from next week or so.

Anyone any inputs on how to prepare for the 'hopeful' interview?

Hi all, urgent question. When I first took my GMAT 3 years ago, I sent the score to INSEAD.

Will this suffice, or do I need to report the score again?


No need to send the details again. I think they have them.. Go ahead and apply

For those of you (like me) already checking their email inboxes every 5secs, keep in mind as per this INSEAD blog that some people received them at the 11th hour. I submitted my application about a day and a half prior to the deadline, so assuming they go through the applications on a first-come, first-read (and first-invited) basis, perhaps it is just best to assume you will receive it on May 17th or 18th.

If that is the case, I might as well be the last person to receive the communication. My recommendations went in after the deadline, so the acknowledgement for being considered for R1 came in well after the deadline.

I am already getting very anxious... :roll:

In that case, just assume you will receive the email on May 18th. I am going on that assumption and trying not to worry about it too much. If I receive something prior to that date, it will probably only be good news anyway :)

Hi All

I wanted to check on the 'hopeful' interview call...I have mentioned my mailing & permanent address in one city and my office address in another city.

Need I update the Adcom on my preferred city up front or await the interview invite confirmation?

Is it typical for the adcom to call or rather to send an email for the interview invites? I would assume it is done by email?

Also, someone mentioned that in another thread the interviews started to go out 11 days prior to the deadline. Is this the rule or the exception to how INSEAD handles interview invites?
