Well I'm not AdCom so take my reply with a pinch of salt - but what they mean most likely is that the AdCom post the interview will compare the 'paper you' (from your app) and the 'real you' (from interviewer feedback) and then take a call on the admission if you come out true-blue.
They would have obviously seen your file earlier in order to shortlist you, but this round could be different people or different questions scanning both sets of reports.
This is also the stage at which 'class diversity' plays an important part. For example, I've spent 3.5 years in consulting and INSEAD is a very consulting heavy school. So I was told by my interviewer at the end of my first interview that 'I think your values and those of INSEAD are generally aligned but now it remains to be seen how you can differentiate yourself from the huge consulting applicant pool'. Another example is that INSEAD usually limits students from any one nationality to 10% of the total class size in order to maintain the international diversity. This means that Indians and Chinese face tougher competition. Again, this is where they would weed out some candidates.
I'm 24, Indian, with 710 GMAT and consulting - those things may have worked against me because they're not strong differentiators (age is in fact much lower than the average 29).
But what probably worked for me is that I'm a woman (sorry guys!) and that I really passionately wanted to go to INSEAD because I like the school and what it stands for.
I don't think you should worry too much about how they are going to perceive you - stick true to your value system, and what you can do for INSEAD. It'll all work out for the best.

Mine was interesting.
My interviewer started off saying you've got a great background and international experience but I really want to know if you'd 'fit' in at INSEAD. So the questions were things like challenges, achievements in life, more about my startup, balancing situations, what do you want to do (and he didn't want to hear the goals in my essays :P ) ...
He was nice and informal, but there was a certain 'something' - like he could see 'inside' everything I was saying and it was a little unnerving
The interview was conversational, but that's a double-edged weapon ... you end up saying things you wouldn't have said in a formal office environment :P
Good luck to everyone. I just want to hear from my second interviewer and end this pain!

Am I the only one who feels profound relief after finishing the interviews and knowing there is nothing else I can do? I can only hope to get accepted or rejected. Please no waitlisting, give me a clean death instead :-)

- Lets say the total number of students at INSEAD in a particular year is 1000.
- 500 will be filled in the September intake.
- That leaves 500 for the January intake.
- About 200 will be filled in round 1 and a 100 in round 3.
- That leaves 200 seats for Round 2
- Now, INSEAD would probably invite about 350 to 400 students assuming a 50% yield. So there are about 400 invites that will go out in Round 2
- If 10%-15% of these people are members of this forum, we can expect around 30 invites to show up here. (A number confirmed from last years threads)
- Leaving out the early invites, I guess there are about 20 more invites that will show up here = HOPE

Yes, there is still HOPE!!

Hi. Let me be the first to post here. I've just submitted my application for January 2013. It'll be a long time before I hear from them, but at least I'm done. It's such a great relief.

You are not alone Bicklyboop! It sure is a relief to be done with all that... and now it's a question of waiting.

I hope I get in, simply because I don't feel like applying all over again! :P

+1 on that one!

I have been at this for 14 months already, if you count from the very first time I opened the GMAT study book back in April 2011, so I had a mini-celebration for completing the entire process, but I really want to have the answer now, and, like you, I would dread being waitlisted and having to wait a few more months for a final result.

Hello people! So I received my login details to the INSEAD intranet today - and there's just 2 more people on for the '13D batch so far and they appear to be deferrals. So everyone can keep their hopes up. Adcom not telling me anything :(
Can I do anything else to help?
