Well...I'll keep checking my emails then. I guess my anxiety is more because this is R3 and already so many candidates have been accepted. THough I am glad for them...I am worried about how it affects my chances. Just hope that it doesn't.
This waiting bit is the most difficult part!!

Would all the R3 applicants know whether they are invited for the interview on the same day (i.e. 14 Sept) ?

I'm also waiting for R3 iview notification :|
From looking at posts on previous rounds/years it seems that the notification process should be well under way by now. Maximum of 30 hours to wait I guess - good luck!!

I just got my invitation to interview 20 minutes ago (American located in Europe). The wait was killer but the victory is even sweeter. Now only one more step to close this book ...

Good luck to everyone still waiting.

Cheers

Hey New Yorkers, I'm an admit but can't yet join the group because the membership list is public and I need to keep it on the D/L (have colleagues on facebook). I may just create a secondary account at some point. But for now...can you PM me info or your contact so I can join the Happy Hour?

Thanks guys!

I'm on the same boat, but the group is private, so nobody will be able to see. The only thing unusual people could see is I have added about 150 friends in the last few weeks.

hey folks,

Does INSEAD grant admissions to waitlisted candidates on a rolling-basis, or do they do it in segmented waves (e.g., after a round)?

The class is sitting at 450... doesn't look good for waitlisted applicants or R3 applicants :(

good luck everyone!

Hey @Geography... If that is the case, then do you have any idea how many people are going to get an interview invite approximately? I just want to know that does it reduce the chances of making it through the interview for R3 applicants? Or will they invite fewer candidates and thus maintain the acceptance ratio....?
I have got the interview contacts and e-mailed both of them today. I haven't heard back from either yet... but perhaps I am just being impatient.

I don't see much activity on this forum from R3 applicants.... this was much more active during R1 and R2 (I just went through the entire post now in order to gain an insight into the interview process ).
Wots up people?! 8-)

I am a round 3 applicant with an interview invite as well.

Let's just assume that the INSEAD adcom is not in the business of wasting people's time. If that's the case then this year's round 3 will be the same as all of the other years. They invite a certain number of people for interviews and from those they choose a certain percentage, waitlist a certain percentage, etc. They wouldn't schedule interviews with alumni all over the world just to go through the motions and in the end accept only a few. And I don't buy the fact that they are waitlisting a greater percentage or accepting a lower percentage of R3 applicants this year. I think the waitlist and R3 chances of acceptance are exactly the same as they were every year before.

Only the adcom knows the numbers but there's no chance anything's randomly changed this year or that they got trigger happy in the first rounds. Maybe they have been experiencing subpar R3 applicant pools over the past years and now they are accepting fewer in R3 but no chance the percentage changes.

Good luck with your interviews!

Hey @Majdeegans - Thanks. I waited for R3 coz I thought I wasn't as well prepared for R1 and R2. I just hope it doesn't reduce my chances in any way.
I am 28/F/Indian/Gmat - 720/ IT -Business Analyst background in the technology team of investment banks.
I am all nerves and trying hard to stay positive and prepare for the interviews...

I'm not saying R3 isn't more selective but if you made it to the interviews I think you have as good of a chance as any.

I was in the same boat and couldn't apply earlier because I was not prepared for rounds 1 and 2 and I did not take my GMAT until August 5th. The only thing to do now is to ace the interviews and figure out financing.

To all the R3s invited to interview: don't be stressed on the 450+ current admitted figure (468 this evening on MBAConnect). Remember that we are still quite far from the first installment deadline for R2s - which should be at the end of the first week of October.
Quoting majdeegans, INSEAD doesn't like to waste people's time :).

Keep calm and... be yourself in the interviews!!! ;)
