Hi,

I just got the interview notification. Based in France, application submitted June 15. Coordinator is AN, on holidays as I said previously, but the email was sent by someone else on her behalf. Now preparing for the interviews.


I also had an invitation on July 18th by AN...while I was travelling for work with no access to my e-mail account!

Has anyone received interview details yet?

Good luck to those still waiting the invite: still a few days to go!

Had first interview. Went very well. I used mattapraveen's list to prepare but in my experience, I'd say apart from the 4 Why's , multi-cultural view , and Question to alum, the best way to prepare is to “be yourself”. It was more of a conversation than an interview, and interviewer appeared to be asking similar questions in different ways. In general, he was looking for fit and to see if I was really interested in INSEAD.

Looking forward to next interview!

R2 Guys,

would strongly suggest not to over-prepare or atleast don't show it ;-). INSEAD is one of the schools where interview is very informal and relaxed to gauge "Real" you. So while you need to have your stories in your head (which you should have based on your application), try to be relaxed and calm.

Couple of key indicators interviewers judge you at

1) Would I like to be with this person when stuck on the airport?

2) Would I like to hire this person (professional/personal merit + personality)?

3) Can this person handle rigor of program?

Be yourself and you shall make it. Element of fun is really appreciated in interviews (if you can handle it). My interviewers appreciated my sense of humor during interview and told me they will support my candidature (this is interviewer dependent)

Expect a bouncer question :-). I was asked "What's my credo/principles"

Good Luck
Deepak



fully agrree with this: interviews tend to be more informal than other schools, even if it happens at your interviewer's office
my bouncer question: "if you have a bit of cash, in what would you invest tomorrow?"
the guy does not expect at all an answer with full details and figures and ROI and IRR or anything... he's more looking to your ideas and to the way you are reasonning...

this might be of interrest for those preparing their interviews: http://www.businessbecause.com/news/mee ... sead-81640

one sentence i picked up: At INSEAD, we have alumni interviewing our candidates. This aspect of the admissions process is unique to us, and it’s invaluable as the interviewer is then able to assess the candidate as if they were a classmate.

hope this helps !

Nope. In the same boat. I am not even sure if they send out invites on the last day. Or do they?

If you have done atleast a 4 year course at a college where the medium of teaching is entirely english, and the degree states the same, you dont need to take Toefel.

Look at the entry requirement in the below link:

I think the final notification date for R2 is Sept 7th, usually a friday. Soyou start hearing from the Tuesday of that week, i.e. 4th Sept. That has been the trend, but might change.
