Mahbahri, I do agree that yours is an unbelievable situation. I hope you the best of luck (I'm currently applying to 14J), but edit your wording (deliema?) and insist with INSEAD.

Guys! Bad news for our us waitlisters.
I got the message from my AO today that no further movement is expected on the waitlist as the class is about to start and it remains full.

Did anyone else hear anything from them?


Nope, not even a sound... Who's your AO?

Sorry to hear that. In this case, will you choose to defer to next intake waitlist?

I have just received an update from my AO. The committee is now finalising the class of Dec'14. If there are going to be any changes (that said admissions from the waitlist), they will occur by Dec. 24. The office looks forward to allocating available places by Christmas break.

Hi, thanks for your information. At least there is some hope to be off from waitlist even it's crazy...

It may sound like a meaningless question now. But could someone please let us the MBA connect count now and the number of Indians?

Quick update from my end - I was accepted to the program few weeks back. I've been traveling with limited access to the internet.
On the wait list, it all boils down to luck. In my case, there was someone with a very similar profile who withdrew. Just to show how crazy it gets, this person had the
1) same ethnicity
2) same city where we grew up
3) same undergraduate university
4) same graduate school
5) similar starting industry/ location (financial services)
6) similar current focus/ industry (entrepreneurship)
7) same native language
8) same gender
...and possibly there were more similarities!

Good luck to all those who are waiting or deferred to the next intake. Happy to help in any way I can. Cheers.

This message is for waitlisters. I dun know how to explain this... but I guess you can think of me as someone who is reachin out to those who were in the same situation as me early last yr. I am currently in the INSEAD 2014D class. 2 years ago, I applied to 2013D class third round, was waitlisted, rejected, reapplied to 2014D class second round, got in.

For those of you who applied to third round and did not receive a rejection that encouraged you to reapply, you may still consider the option of reapplying. I was in such a situation and wrote a 400-word reapplication (200 words on updates of my profile, 200 words on motivation to reapply) essay despite having gotten an outright rejection. Yes, some things have changed in my profile (including a higher GMAT), but all-in-all, I only updated my new situation in 200 words. Did my change in profile have an effect? Was my previous profile already good enough?... I dunno. INSEAD has its own way of organising the class so there is no point guessing. End of the day, just do not give up simply because you did not receive an rejection that encourage you to reapply. If you think you have grounds to reapply, do consider reapplying.

It is not my intention to bring hopes up again. I have been through the waitlist process (and rejection) so I know its not easy. In fact, it is very, very difficult. I am also not suggesting that all waitlisters should reapply. Like I said earlier, you can think of me as someone who is reachin out to those who were in the same situation as me early last yr.

Lastly, life is full of surprises. Getting into INSEAD is great but not getting in doesn't mean something better won't come along. Stay positive and continue to work hard towards what you wish to achieve. All the best!

Hi,

I applied to INSEAD for the August 2014 intake but got this response:

The Admissions Committee has decided that you need to gain at least one more year of professional experience before attending the INSEAD MBA programme. This additional experience would better prepare you for the course.
Consequently, on behalf of the Admissions Committee, it is my great pleasure to offer you a place in the INSEAD MBA Class of July 2016, starting in Singapore on 24 August 2015.
Congratulations and welcome to the worldwide INSEAD community!
..
..
..
Admissions Requirements
As your admission to the programme is conditional on you gaining additional work experience, please provide an update on any new aspects of your professional, international, academic or personal profile. This information will need to be sent to your Admissions Officer by 1 June, 2015
.

Has anyone received a deferred admit before? What does this mean? Is this an almost-admit? What are my chances of getting an admit/reject next year?

What should I do? I am confused and re-evaluating my plan considering the position I am in. If you have or if you know someone who has been admitted conditionally please let me know how it works out.
Thanks!
