yangsta8,

Is there a way the AdCom can help us connect with an alumni or someone who is presently studying there, I think if we can get someone from INSEAD onboard this thread (perhaps an ex-GMAT Club member) it would be a big big help.

How is your application coming up. The essays are quite challenging and even more so because of the word limits

All the best with your application.

Cheers,
Vivek.

No probs. To be honest, I think you can gather a lot of information through what is already posted here as well as the INSEAD site, INSEAD collateral and student blogs. I've also noticed that SM332 has created a thread about INSEAD in the ambassadors forum so we can ask questions there. But talking to alumni has certainly been a helpful experience for me.

Word limits are a struggle with any app but its part of the process Good luck to you too.

I am really trying to get in touch with an INSEAD student too. But I dont find any way to do that.
My other schools such as Kellogg and LBS provide the contact details of current students in the club pages.
The same doesnt seem to be the case with INSEAD. Am I missing something here or is the school deliberately stopping us from randomly contacting the students?

Does anyone have any insight on how INSEAD views people such as Indians or Chinese with U.S. undergraduate degree and work experience, for diversity purposes, especially during admissions? I am referring to foreign-born U.S. graduates, not Indian-Americans or Chinese Americans.

Arguably, these people do not bring much insight about the corporate culture in their home countries, because they have never worked in their home countries.

I think this is a strength. The weakness of this pool is that they are overly represented not that they are lacking in bring diversity. In fact a good population of INSEAD is represented by individuals who have worked and lived in many different countries. I believe the idea of diversity is not just to be a stereotypical representation of a specific culture but people who have shown that they are accepting of many different cultures. I think that's why they have a 3 language requirements. So they get a class of individuals that always have a global background.

In relation to the original comment about not bringing insight from the corporate culture of a home country, work culture is only one aspect of diversity. If you can demonstrate diversity in other ways that show cultural awareness/sensitivity that is just as valid.

However it does seem there are no real student ambassadors on the website. I don't know where you live but perhaps you can attend an info session or go the school. If that is not a possibility perhaps try emailing the school, or looking up individual club sites you are interested in for contact details.

I was just wondering how do we send the documents! Is is necessary to send the documents only after submission of the online application, or is it fine to send the documents first and in the meantime complete the online application? Also, do we have to quote anything specific on the documents like the passport number or the application ID, for unique identification of documents? Those who have already applied - could you please throw some light on this matter. Thanq in advance, Vivek.

My documents won't arrive in France on time if I send them after I submit the online form so I assume its fine to submit prior. Hoping someone can confirm the following: 1) If English is my native language, do I only need to send my transcript as the only physical item? 2) The language requirement can be submitted after admissions is that right? (until November if im not wrong, for Jan admissions) 3) If I have reported my GMAT online there is no physical item that needs to be sent? 4) Viveks question - Do we need to send anything else identifying our documents?

Thanks in advance 1. Yes - you still need to send a transcript 2. You will be asked to officially declare your language at a much later stage post admittance- so dont worry abt it now 3. Yes - that should not be an issue - please ensure that all your GMAT scores are reported to INSEAD. In my case, I had to a last minute run because my 2008 score hadnt gotten to them 4. I dont believe you need to send any identifying information - most transcripts have basic information on them which should allow them collate the info to your file. It may be a good idea to followup with them to ensure receipt. _________________ INSEAD Sept 2010 Interview Invite Nov 5, 2009 Admit & Matriculating Wharton Sept 2010 Interview Invite Oct 30, 2009 Waitlisted & Ding Harvard Sept 2010 Ding without Interview Ivey May 2010 Interview Invite Nov 23, 2009 Admit +$$

thanks sm332,

another suggestion i got in some other forum is that one should also include a cover letter listing all the documents one is sending in that packet and also provide information such as DOB, Passport Number and contact info i.e. mailID and Phone number.

This should do the work I believe.

Hope this helps,
Vivek.

Folks,
I want to add a support letter from someone to my application. Should I:
a. Add it in a sealed envelop to the package of documents that I send them
b. Fax it to the adcom
c. E-Mailing it to the adcom

Hi, I would choose either option a or c, provided that the additional recommender sends the letter to the adcom directly.

Hope that helps.

I am planning to apply in R1. Can anyone tell me from whom you managed to get attestation of the marksheets? Would it suffice to get attestation from a notary public?
