I am getting conflicting advice and would like an opinion.


ADMITS: can you please share an opinion on this matter? I would be interested in knowing about weakness mentioned in the recommendation too. Kindly PM if this is too sensitive to share in public. Thanks.

I've heard people say that that you should pick something that an MBA would fix anyways, but I think it's fine to name an actual weakness as long as it's appropriate and doesn't reveal some deep-seated ethical/character flaw that will make you crash and burn at school. Consider it a chance to show self-awareness and a way with words. Pick something that's clear and easy to put into words, even if it's not your top weakness. In fact, that probably makes it easier to write about.

For example -- arrogance sounds awful and may not be the best choice, but there's a political way to phrase it:
Quote:
Sometimes I can be curt with less experienced colleagues and pay their ideas less respect than they deserve. While this helps me in being decisive and getting things done, it's not always the best way to keep others motivated. Everyone needs a chance to be heard, so I have to remind myself to give others more opportunity to speak.


You get the idea. Your essay should probably be more direct than this overall, but I think this section deserves a bit of wordyness.

R2 and R3 applicants - check out this blog

http://adam-markus.blogspot.com/

there are some superb tips about the essays for INSEAD


To admits - any suggestions for funding? INSEAD costs a ton! I looked thru their website and it seems that its mostly loans and some scholarships (which will cover maybe $10k if you are good enough to get it)

I have a few questions, they might be very naive but I would rather not take chances.

1. In the GMAT score section the heading says Verbal % - by % I would think its percentile and not the actual verbal or Quant score. The reason for confusion is in the total the form does not ask %. So in the Total it is the acyual score but in the Quant and Verbal section it is the percentile but not the score.

2. I did not see an option to enter AWA score, I hope I am not missing anything.

3. In the Job description section there are two dates
a.) DATE OF APPOINTMENT TO PRESENT POSITION
b.) DATE OF JOINING PRESENT COMPANY
I am assuming the first one is the date when I got the offer letter and the second one is the date when I physically joined the operations. The reason I am asking is I have gap og almost 9 months in these dates becasue of visa issues.

Please give your thoughts.

1 & 2) Sounds about right

3) I took this as "date you started at company" and "date you got current position". In other words -- if you joined as analyst and are now an associate, b.) would be the date you joined company as an analyst and a.) would be the day you were promoted to associate. I don't think the offer letter is what they're looking for, though it may help you to interpret it that way if you're trying to explain a gap in employment.

When do I make the application fees payment. Is it at the time when I submit the form or when I get an email from INSEAD that my paperwork is complete?

Payment is required as one of the submission steps, then you get the 'all complete' email.

I waited until the final day (part last-minute-essay edits, part last-minute-recommendations) and the payment system actually broke down, causing a bit of worries. While INSEAD said that website downtime might be ignored if you missed payments at the time, I'd recommend clearing everything up a couple days early just in case.

Planning to submit my application for Round 2 but still working on essays. Can I check if my recommenders have submitted their references before I submit my application? The application page on the website suggests that etherylDOTnet/INSEAD/application/ should give me the status but it asks for an application ID. Where would one find this ID? Thanks much.

If you use the URLs you sent to your referees yourself, you can see whether they've registered, are editing or have completed their recommendations (you'll have to go to the 2 links separately instead of one site, but at least you can check before submitting your application - I think the application ID only gets generated when you've submitted). Hope that makes sense and helps. :)

Well I tried using the application id window, since I have submitted my appl, and have an appl id, but it shows appl id not found. The only thing that happened was that after submitting the application I got a receipt on e-mail that appl has been recd, alongwith the recs and payment. :)
