While some here are still waiting for their interview confirmation (good luck to them!), it seems I'll be kicking off the interview experiences for R2. As both interviewers contacted me directly upon receiving my confirmation mail, I had my first interview planned for tonight already.

We had a casual conversation in the beginning, followed by a list of questions. Most of them were similar to the ones posted earlier in this thread (page 32 and following):

Why an MBA at INSEAD?
What will you add to the program?
What is your biggest achievement (professional)?
What do you plan after INSEAD?
How do culture differences matter?
What else should I know about you?
...

I asked him a lot of questions, and we talked about internships and career after INSEAD. Afterwards he gave me some useful feedback. Bottomline, a very nice conversation.

Number 1 finished, number 2 yet to come, and then the long wait begins...

Got the preselected email from JS finally after 3 weeks nervous waiting. Before giving me something I asked for, God want to make sure I can survive without it.

Bless all those who are still waiting.

Both my interviewers will be holidaying soon, that's why it's going so fast. But I prefer it this way, instead of three or four weeks of uncertainty, all stress was compressed in the three days I had before the first interview. After this one, I feel a lot more relaxed about the second.

I completely agree. There is not much to prepare really + you cant enjoy your life till then :-/ I got pre selection mail on 4th but it took a long time to search for interviewers. And now when I got the details the holiday fortnight has started here.

I really couldn't do anything but both of them replied even on vacation so thats nice :)
