Yes, that and the H/S/W/LBS would have given their round 1 decisions by then, so lets pray people get into their 1st choice colleges.

deadlines look more like mid December to me.

According to previous January waitlist threads, there are two movement periods still awaiting us: around the 15th of November and at the beginning of December.

I agree that based on previous threads there is a little movement around mid-Nov, but my coordinator is away on vacation until the 15th, i assume that she will be back intime to review dropouts/nonpayers and then after a week end of nov/start of dec. Send out the acceptances.

November 11th is the deadline for payment of deposits by R3 candidates. I think December is the deadline for the payment of the second installment for all candidates.

Well, do you believe there will be people willing to lose 5k euro if not paying the second installment?
IMHO given the accepted number in this intake we should see the major movements next week (sadly, but I'm pretty sure not pleasant for us).

1) Sure. If INSEAD wasnt ure #1 choice, and you got a call from H/S/W/LBS wouldnt you give up the 5K deposit ?? In the long run its only some 1-2% of your overall MBA cost. Coincidentally, i have a friend who just have his Harvard interview and will forego his deposit if he gets in. Unfortuately he only finds out sometime in mid-Dec

2) Major movements in terms of ???? the Wait List ????

Yep, I meant the waitlist.
Probably you are right, but there will be just a few candidates in a situation such as the one your friend might have.
As for me, I do really hope that it will all end at the end of the month, cause I definetly don't wanna wait till the Cristmas Eve to receive my e-mail.

Good point, but do we know of many instances of getting an offer mid December? I couldn't find much info in this respect from previous threads. I only heard of one unique instance (from rino's link) that a guy got offered a place at the end of December... there definitely postings of offers mid-November, beginning of Dec, but not much beyond..

I agree with big fox. However, I am afraid that our expected mid November movement will be smaller than the one of Jan 2010, as this R3 produced about 50% less admits.

Good luck

Hello,
does any body knows when classes start? Im still in the waitlist and obviously its frustrating. people from insead is coming to Peru. i have a coffee chat. any recommendation?
And also, if insead doesnt send me neither the phone call or the email, does that mean that i should reapply for september?

I think p1 starts around January 10.
Regarding your second question, if you are not offered a place Insead will either encourage you not to reapply or give you reapplication instructions.

Hope this helps

As regards your point regarding reapplication: If INSEAD does let any one of us know the reapplication instruction in December, we would only be able to apply in R3 for September 2012 intake. And I personally don't want to take yet another R3 chance! And am sure most of us wouldn't.

tell me about it! let's just hope to hear back by the beginning of Dec, just in time for r2 deadline. In the meantime, I am trying to find out how many peops were on the waitlist for Jan2011. One would hope that they wouldn't put people on the waitlist if there wasn't a decent chance of getting in (so they should have taken into a/c the crazy amount of applicants this year). from that shared spreadsheet I see we are currently about 18-20 on the waitlist (that's from registered applicants). I assume pending means ding?

Are your coordinators responding fast to your messages. Cause sometimes it feels that mine can't care less about me. Waitlist pool is the no respect pool sériously. What does it cost to respond ? To people who've been waiting a year and keep waiting. This situation really sucks

Don't be sad , I think it is not a coordinator type of problem, it is more of a "I can't be bothered to respond to an e-mail" type of attitude that comes across often these days..

I would understand in any other circumstance. But not here; we have been waiting for almost a year and all i ask is a little respect for the time, effort we put not to mention the stress of the outcome. Isnt it too much to ask ?

I am with you; I have been waiting almost half a year and I am already really exhausted. My co-ordinator was actually really quick with coming back to me, but that was before I was put on the waitlist. I have not contacted her since then. I got an impression that they don’t encourage to contact them unless there was a significant change in your circumstances that could positively influence the outcome of your application, such as that you got more responsibilities at work, some achievements, etc. But I understand that after a year you would definitely want some clarity, regardless of your circumstances. I will also write to my coordinator in about a week or so, I hear there should be some movement towards the end of the month. I think there probably no news yet. Good luck!
