@LiverpoolFC , I more than concurr : Alumni reco do NOT substitute for customer or supervisor reco , this is something I discussed with the INSEAD people on their IHE ; I would strongly suggest current or just previous employer is a MUST HAVE. Alumni reco that has no direct biz connections with you is only good as the "third" recommendation : a friend who has followed your complete career, a mentor, or a faculty member with whom you've had some exchanges during your POST-school life.
Cheers,

A


And would it help if the official Recommendation Letter comes from a former client (from a consulting project) that happens to be also an INSEAD alumnus?


That is the epitomic "cherry on the cake" and Will bring good creds to the testimony.

I am in a very strong confusion on recos. From my previous company(management consulting) where I worked for 3 years I have several people willing to give me very good reco. In my current company I have just spent 7 months and I report to a global director. Do you think its completely fine if I give both reco from previous employer ? I think I can make a good overall app and dont want to lose any chance because of some foolishness on reco front.

Hi docks, first off let appologize for not having answeredyour earlier question on the Link and questions faccility: When I asked INSEAD, they said the recommender would have to create password, then fill in à clear id-type page, then proceed to à two-fold recommandation : a competence matrix where he grades you, then some for of open question that puisses him/her to give a written testimony. If I may suggest, what's important is not what the question is but rather how Wellington does your recommander knows you, and how relevant is the period and context he met you in to demonstrate the qualities and behaviors useful to an mba and beyond.
Now, this being said, I was told (Still insead but feel Free to ask them) they understand that in some cases, it might be not possible to get recommended from one's current employer : they might be in conflict or not supporting your move.

IMHO, I think what's important is that your recommandation some how checks with your prête ses in the essays, particularly the ones where they ask you about your character, your successes, your reaction in the face of failure. If you describe yourself as having saved the day for the firm, then it is reasonable to expect as much coming from whomever witnessed it. In a phrase : when It comes to recommandations, relevance an significance outweigh recency.

Hôte this helps.
Cheers,
A.C.

P.S.: sorry if you find silly typos, the langage & autocorrection are set wrong, it's driving me crazy, too.

Always thought I had a low chnace at Insead for various reasons, certainly not looking good!!!


I wouldn't take that as a bad sign. The deadline is still 2 weeks away; maybe they read applications in batches and inform candidates at the end of every batch..

Good luck!

I had similar concern about the recos. My current manager would not support my decision. INSEAD representative at one of the MBA fairs suggested I should ask any other senior manager in my company, who also knows me well, to provide a reco. He also advised to comment on my choice of recommenders in the opional essay. That's exacly what I did.

If you applied by the deadline you should have gotten an email about your application being complete by now. Your coordinator is the one who sent you that email. Check your spam folder, and if it's not there you should get in touch with admissions.

Hi
I spoke to somebody at admissions and they said once she comes we will hear our verdict and we can even hear as late as 17th afternoon. Obviously this doesn't account for unforeseen circumstances such as some1 else gives out our results or if SH returns earlier.
Hope that helps xx

True. With 8th and 9th being holidays and 10th being an extended weekend Friday, its unlikely that we will get to hear before 13th now.
