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!


Hi Majdeegans, can you please clarify what you mean by "this year's round 3 will be the same as all of the other years" - what have the chances for R3 applicants been historically who have been selected for an interview? Thanks!

I have been selected for an interview but just nervous about my chances - 26/F/Indian (international work experience in the East and West, not in India). My GMAT score is on the lower end but I have quality work experience all over the world and a fantastic undergraduate GPA.

@Tdotgirl27

Unfortunately I don't have INSEAD's numbers or historical data so I cannot answer your question. My statement was only addressing a few posts speculating that the R3's and waitlisted candidates for this intake had a lesser chance due to the high number of current admits that had been posted. IMHO, INSEAD has a clearly defined admissions strategy (whatever it may be) and they adhere to it. I doubt they just wing it year to year. I don't want to speculate here but I believe that INSEAD has an exact target number for each round with a defined percentage acceptance rate after the interviews (plus or minus of course) and this year will be the same.

That being said, congratulations on your interview invite! I am sure you have a great chance of acceptance now that you have made it through the first round. They obviously like what you have to offer so just be honest and confident when you represent yourself at the interview.

thanks hamadah1 & snbury! appreciate the quick responses.

am waitlisted from R2 and don't think things are looking too good at this stage.. haven't heard any R2 waitlisters been accepted yet, and not too many positions left to fill!

waiting is the real killer........ it's that last morsel of hope that still remains...........

Can someone post the number of Brazilians and Latin America?

R2 Waitlist too ... things do not look good.

If I am not called in R3 deadline, I don't think it will happen.

Hi folks, I'm sitting on the waitlist too. I think Oct 11 or that week should be the key week to watch out for - Some of the waitlisters from Round 1 were accepted 2 weeks before Round 2 acceptances went out.

Does anyone know how many seats are available in INSEAD's January cycle? I've see "500" floating around.

Also, does anyone know when the Deposit date is for Round 2's accepted candidates?

Thanks!
Good to all!

Hi all,

had both of my interviews yesterday. One of the intervirewers was much thoughter than the other but as I've read in the blog that is the way they usually are...

Now I'm gona sit back and wait to see what happens, nothing else I can do at this stage. Hopefully it will be a call and not a generic email.

Good luck to all of you!

Much appreciated

Sure! I got an email on 9/5 saying I was waitlisted, replied back 9/9 to accept a place on the waitlist, 9/25 received email saying I've been offered a place. I didn't email or call them, except to "accept" my place on the waitlist. I started drafting a letter, but never sent it. Hope this helps, feel free to PM me if you have more questions.

Just submitted my R1 application. Its taking some time to sink in that I don't have to think about tweaking my essays anymore :)

While submitting, I did face a problem - after I hit the submit button, adobe crashed. However, I did receive a confirmation email and was able to upload all other documents successfully. I'm worried whether all my application data went through correctly or not. Has any one else had or heard about this issue?

Thanks



Hello,
Can you please let me know about the process of application for the re applicants?

Just received call from CT. Accepted from the R2 waitlist! I had weekly communication expressing my plans and reservations about being on the waitlist (I had started applying for program intakes Fall 2013). Also sent an email expressing excitement about the new Abu Dhabi MBA module (tip: follow INSEAD on twitter and keep up-to-date on what's happening there). Anyhow, #mindblown, it's been a crazy month and I can't wait to begin meeting others!
