mpopov and poolpass, congratulations! it's not easy waiting this late, and it's probably going to feel like a lot to do, especially with first installment due on Nov 26.

My tips on getting accepted late for Fonty are as follows. This list is more or less in priority order, but throughout the next few weeks, I expect that you're continually reading all the information under the "Information" tab in MBA Connect and asking questions on the bulletin board and your fellow admits. See points 8 and 9.
1. Read the visa information section of MBA Connect thoroughly
2. Pay deposit as soon as possible so you have access to the attestation letter (you will need this for visa purposes) - wire transfer can take 4-5 biz days, more if your payment gets lost in the shuffle. Once you pay the deposit, send proof of payment as instructed under the "information" tab, as well as contact the student life office for "customized hard copies with original signatures" of attestation letters for campus france and consul france. Each geography is different and campus france or consul france may not accept the "scanned" signature on the attestation you can download and print off the website. Note you will only have access to the attestation once payment reaches Fonty and is validated by the financial services deparment.
3. Read visa process information thoroughly on consul france and campus france website(s)
- Visa is a two part process, campus france pre-registration for INSEAD (ie prove to French gov't you have been registered to insead and confirm your motivation to study in France) and consul france student visa/partner long-stay visa. The process is poorly documented but you will eventually figure it out. See #8 and #9, as well as do search for existing threads on MBA Connect.
4. Immediately begin the campus france process. Each country process is slightly different for most people it is painful. You will need the attestation letter for campus france when you have your interview or as part of the campus france form submission.
5. Begin looking for housing. You may not find what you are looking for, but look anyways. Use all resources at your disposal - MBA connect, an agent if you choose to use one (such as city junction or office immobilier), bonaparte.org, etc. Do not wait until you're in Fonty to look for accomodation - you will likely pay a lot and end up with something sub-optimal anyways.
6. Figure out if you want to take the business foundations course - payment for the course is due end of this week - you may have an extension of deadline, but this will affect when you need to be in Fonty regardless
7. Book plane tickets - ticket prices will continue to go up. Also, look to online travel sites and recommendations for agents that work often with cross-atlantic travel.
8. Hook into admits in your geography - ideally a drinks or dinner get-together or simply reach out and ask for help on MBA Connect about any of the above. They have already done a lot of prep or have at least put together a list, and know whether the visa process will be a pain or will be quicker. You can find people using the search directory function, posting on the bulletin board, or finding the appropriate "group"
9. Get the other admits to help you digest all the other information on MBA connect and things that aren't on MBA Connect. I expect you have been going through the rest of the information on MBA Connect and are probably overwhelmed with what's there, as well as the huge to-do list you have started to amass. You will have things to do like arrange financing from banks and/or govt, some scholarships may still be available, and there will be associated deadlines.

If you would like to talk to me, my contact details can be found on MBA Connect - just do a search for Nationality: Japanese and Class: 11D MBA, and I'll be the only Japanese Canadian in the list. Good luck!

Congrats mpopov, poolpass and BZ28.

Hankscorpio/ JZhang: Has there been any movement in the MBA Connect numbers (Indians specifically)?

HankScorpio,

Thanks a lot for the extensive and helpful advice! Can you share where you can find the stats on MBA Connect because I can't seem to find them anywhere?

Thanks and good luck to everybody!

BZ28 - congrats and welcome!
Applicant2011 - I can give you the current numbers, but not sure what the historical #s are. I'm sure you can look for earlier posts.
total: 523
Indian: 57

mpopov: stats that we've been posting here on gmatclub are actually based on doing searching using the directory tool. Under the community tab, there's the directory search function. To get the full list of 11D admits, simply select MBA'11D under class and search. To get a specific nationality, select the nationality under the appropriate dropdown and click search.

Cheers!

The R3 payment deadline has passed. There must have been some movement in the MBA Connect numbers. Can anyone post the current numbers?


Hoping against reality.

Thanks for the update.

The total number is still increasing; do not see any chance for waitlisted...

Congrats and good luck to everyone who got admitted!

Hi everyone

It's been really quiet here so I wonder if there any candidates still on the waitlist at all? Let the community know if you took your self out or you are still hanging in!

Also I guess some of the payment defaults had to happen by now, is there any movement in the waitlist at all?


Regards!

Im still here waiting, but it doesn't look like there are many others checking or contributing to the forum. Im sure there are still quite a few of us on the waitlist though. Judging by last year's waitlist forum, a lot of movement seems to happen after the deadline for payment (today). Hopefully there will be some movement in the next week or two. If anyone hears anything, please post for the rest of us! I'd also appreciate it if someone who is admitted can update us every so often on the numbers of admitted.
Thanks!

Thanks!


Hi sanslimites! Good to hear you're in the same boat with someone :)

Do you (or anyone else here) know if I have to take myself off the waitlist before reapplying for next year, or can I both stay and reapply?

There are 521 people on MBA Conect, but I think they didn't process the payments made last Friday. The number should be down by the end of this week.

Thanks for the update BZ28.

That means 8 more places have opened up, if you assume that adcom wants a batch of 529 (the admit number as on Nov 16) . Considering that the last 2 batches were 504 and 511, it might be more logical to assume that adcom had given out 529 admits earlier with the expectations that there would be dropouts even till the last date which would bring the batch size down to a 500 - 510 number. Conversely, INSEAD seems to be increasing the batch size every year and might be targeting a 520-530 number.

Personally I wish the second scenario is true. Also, i had gone through the posts on this forum and it looks like there are only 10 of us on this forum who are still on WL. Hope that each one of us makes the cut.

For those who are still waiting.. I just talked to my coordinator and she said that some decisions on the waitlist may come out next week. She wasn't sure at all, but at least that's something.. :)

I requested to take myself off it and reapplied to Sep 2011

Best of luck!
