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!

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!

Congrats!

Can someone post the total number of acceptances? Also, does anyone know the total number of seats in the Jan cycle?

In 2011, there was a total of 1009 candidates (for both July and Dec).
In 2010, there were 988 candidates.
I don't have the stats for 2009.
In 2008, there were 915 candidates.
In 2007, there were 885 candidates.

So, with the trend of increasing numbers as the years go by, and if we assume the 2010-2011 increase of 2% will also follow for 2012 and 2013, then maybe we can expect the 2013 numbers to be about 1050.

The 13J class has 490 candidates, so the possible class size for 13D should be between 519 (without any increase in class size from 1009) to 560 (with 2% increase in 2012, 2013).
Classes starting in Jan will see more candidates since this is not in competition with the American B-schools which start in Sept.
And the last i heard, there were 477 registered on MBA Connect for 13D, which I presume to mean that this is the number of acceptances.

So that means there are between 42-83 places remaining for R3 and R1 and R2 waitlists.

Hope this helps! :-D


brilliant! Thanks bud :)

Scholarship question for the North Americans out there.

I am trying to apply for the need-based pool of scholarships with the INSEAD SchlMgmt tool and when I click on 'apply', North America is the only region without access to the need-based scholarships. Did everyone else experience this? and if so, do you have any idea why? Are North Americans really not eligible for these scholarships? I don't consider myself particularly 'needy' however that's exactly why there is an application process with supporting documents. Lets allow the scholarship committee to determine exactly who is needy enough before excluding certain regions. Unless there is some financial or governmental reason for excluding our little region, then I would understand.

Hi all... I haven't had my interviews yet... one of my interviewers has not yet come back to me on a date or time at all... and another one hasn't confirmed a time....though he has suggested a date.... I wanted to finish them off as soon as possible, but clearly it's not going to happen. I have informed my adm-coordinator about it though.
Just wanted to check with the rest of you- has anyone uploaded a third recommendation? If yes, then does it have to be in a certain format? INSEAD hasn't mentioned a lot about it in its website....and since i have got the time on my hands...i was just thinking if it would be a good idea.... any pointers?

Helllo all,
I just completed both of my interviews. I traveled to another city in India for them. One was confirmed beforehand. The second one postponed many times, mostly without notice, but finally managed to give me some time because I was in the city for a short time and only for the interviews and did not have much of a choice.
Both the interviews were at coffee shops.
The first interview was very thorough. I was asked a lot of questions like, why MBA, why INSEAD, what are my strengths and weaknesses, what do I think about the economy and the way it's headed, how would I contribute to INSEAD, if in a group what role would I play. I have not applied to any other B-School and the person was surprised to hear that and I replied that if I dont get through I will focus on other applications and I mentioned a few other schools. The interview lasted for about 1.5 hrs and it was very friendly and conversational and I got a good feedback as well.
The second interview - well I am not sure how it went. It wasn't that long so I felt as if I could have said so much more ... The style was again very friend;y and conversational, but this time there were very less questions. He got two calls in between and he took both of them. Then he constantly urged me to apply to other schools, i don't know if he was trying to throw me off, but I replied that if this doesn't work out then I will surely explore other schools.
He did not ask me or probe into the why MBA/why INSEAD question too much either - just kind of touched the topic and moved on. He inquired about any challenges that I faced during my career and spoke about my international exposure and that was about it. He did wish me luck but did not give any feedback or any sort of clue as to how he thought it went and I did not dare to press him for one.
I have sent a thank you note to both of them.

Now all I can do is wait my fingers/toes/everything else crossed!
Good luck to all others who are waiting for decisions or interviews....
