Here are some words re interview invites from someone who's been through the application process and is currently attending:

OutOfMyJeans, on April 11, 2010 at 3:36 pm Said:
Coming to your question, INSEAD is a very competitive school to get into; INSEAD’s very brutal with it’s first cut when it selects candidates for an interview. No one knows official numbers, but rumor has it that nearly 50% or more get chopped off. There are so many things that go into an application, that meeting the bar alone doesn’t nail the deal; loads of people meet the bar by that mathematical definition. The quality of the your work-experience, your essays, your GMAT score, the languages you speak, your nationality, etc. all go towards the decision. So, I wouldn’t really agree with the people who told you that meeting the bar ensures an interview. I don’t think anyone knows the black-art of admissions and till that becomes clear, there will be admissions consultants making easy money. However, if you think you have put in a strong application, then I suggest you remain optimistic and start preparing for the interviews. Don’t know if that helped, but it’s an honest answer. Best of luck!

So, we're up to 5 ppl with an interview invite between Businessweek and gmatclub boards... and less than 96 hours away until R1 deadline (assuming they have until 23:59:59 on April 16, France time). Let the nailbiting and refreshing your email begin. :-D For my own reference, that's 6pm Toronto/New York time; 3pm Vancouver/Seattle/Los Angeles time.

Has anyone received a ding so far? I wanted to know if they will send out all the dings on the last day, or send these well before the deadline, like how they are sending the invites

Just got an interview invite as well. By the sound of the email, pre-selected means that you're invited to interview but details will be coming in an email at a later date. My feeling is that they're going over applications, deciding who they want to interview, and then coordinating with local alumni, etc. It's really just semantics.

My profile: F, 4 yrs WE (advisory, valuation / FP), lots of intl experience, 710 GMAT.

Good luck to all!

I logged in and says the same stuff as when I submitted it. Submitted, photo, letters of rec etc.

I got an invite this morning. totally surprised, frankly this was probably my worst app of the bunch (UCLA might be just as bad)

Congrats and Goodluck!

Congrats everyone!

FYI to everyone, current # of accepts per my spreadsheet is 12.

Noticing a few trends already... 7 out of 12 are women, 10 out of 12 are >= 700 GMAT

This is completely my guessing, but the early invites are probably a result of an initial pre-screen, using factors that indicate uniqueness and diversity, and quick filters such as GMAT score - of course none of these would discount you, but I'm sure they have certain criteria they review apps against and cherry pick ones they know they want without needing to compare against others. This is of course assuming my dataset is representative of the early invites, which it very well may not be. I'm sure there's pre-selection associated with the type of personality that posts in each forum. And I wouldn't discount recommendation letters from insead alumni as a screening filter either. There's probably tons of other ways they flag files as they come in.

And now back to the wait...
