Hey everyone,
I did not see that forum 3 months back when I also applied for the January 2011 intake for INSEAD but it is interesting to see that we are now all in the same situation. Two weeks ago I had my two interviews directly here in Germany and my experience was absolutely the same. Very nice interview partners following a common question guideline from INSEAD. The second one even said that he will recommend me to INSEAD as ghe thinks that I perfectly fit in there. No idea whether he was just teasing me or whether it was really true.

So waiting is always the worst time. And yes it is hard not to think already one step further about accomodation, additional language courses for 3rd language and computer equipment, but work definitely helps a lot :-) Really looking forward to next friday and keeping the fingers crossed for us all.

By the way I also heard that they are very strict concerning the final feedback whether one is admitted or not. I was already quite surpised when I got interview feedback two weeks before end of the deadline.


Hi stk, Could you explain on what you meant by "final feedback". Is it the writtern feedback from the interviewers?


Sorry for the confusion. I just meant that they will be very sharp about the deadline for letting us know whether we are in or not. So I do not expect the get any feedback before 29th. That is the 'final feedback' to us :-)

Hi,

I am new to the gmatclub. I am in the same boat as several of you here waiting for the final decision. I am based in NY working in the financial sector and have about 6 years of experience. I have just been reading some interesting interview experiences and thought will share my experience as well. The first interview went really well and it was more of general questions - "Why MBA? Why INSEAD?....". The second one didn't go well and there was a lot of cross-questioning right from the start. The interviewer didn't sound too satisfied with some of my explanations. How much weightage is assigned to the interviews? Is it a strict "NO" if one of the interviewers doesn't provide good feedback?

Cheers!

Hi Kruizer,
I'd say I am on the same raft as you because your interview experiences are similar to mine. However, I'd suggest not to read too much at this point. Some interviewers try to sound sarcastic as a way of judging the participant. I've read about instances where people got selected even after facing a hostile interviewer. So just try to remain optimistic (though it's easier said than done, I am getting jitters too!).
And so far what I've read, interviews are very important part of INSEAD application.
Cheers, SH

Hi Sourabh,

That's definitely very encouraging. To add to things, the last thing he asked was - "What if you don't make it to INSEAD?". I understand that this is a standard question but the timing was just at the end of the session (after my questions to him) :) Anyway, will keep you posted. Good luck to you as well!

Cheers!

I don't plan on shipping my car to Fonty so I will have to find a way to transport myself to and from campus. Maybe I will get a bike but I can't imagine the trip pleasant in winter...


I'm planning on biking, but I have a wife and two kids who will need something more!

My interviewer told me that Renault has a super easy lease program that he and several students used to get cars for the time in Fonty.


The self-confidence/optimism seems to be at it's peak on this group! :-) I hope this entire group is able to make it.....



You're right, we are an optimistic bunch... I'm trying to prepare myself for the worst, but then I find myself planning and speaking as if I've already been accepted!

With that in mind, I assume everyone has taken a look at the elective courses. Which ones are you most interested in? Personally, I'm very interested in Explorations in Social Entrepreneurship. What an incredible opportunity to interact with businesses at the "base of the pyramid." It's an area I'd like to be involved in after graduation.

I'm personally not interested in the wharton exchange, but I will pass along what one of my interviewers told me.

In the past, the wharton classes were poorly developed, because wharton isn't on the same 2 month period as insead. As a result, choices in classes were limited when he went to insead. But he admitted that the number of classes offered have increased, and he presumes their quality has improved. But as far as quality of education is concerned, there is very little gained due to the campus exchange. If you are going to wharton, the key reason is to join the recruiting drive at wharton, and have access to wharton's job postings, all with the goal of working in the US. If that is not your goal, he suggested not to bother with the wharton exchange.

Good luck, whichever choice you make!

I sent mine by mail also. After the round ends they will send you an email from your coordinator letting you know that your application is complete or not.

I've heard that admits get confirmed 3 days before the deadline. So does that mean tomorrow or wednesday? (do we count the deadline date?) :?:

Round 2 - Sept 2010 intake, it started 3 days before the deadline, including the deadline date. So that would be wednesday. I got my call at 8:30, so don't plan to sleep in late. :P
