No kidding. This month of waiting will be terrible. To then cap it off with a wait list would be just excruciating. Looks like they don't reject many after the interview. It appears that they wait list most of those they don't accept.

Are you saying the probability of acceptance if we get pass the interview stage is 70% or P(Admitted) = 70% ? Also, if probability of attending either campus is 50% or P(Campus)=50%. Then, there would be a 35% chance that we will be classmate lol ? (P(Classmate)=P(Admitted)*P(Campus)= 35%)

I would love to meet everyone from this thread. Hanging out on such forums (sometimes sacrificing direct working hours ) is a sign of proactive approach. we all deserve to be there!

The certainty and confidence excites me! Though we gotta realize that the conversion is <=70% and not 100%.

Anyone interviewing in NYC?

Just out of curiosity, I saw you apply to both INSEAD and Havard. A little bit of pre-interview question for you, if you got offer from both, which school would you choose, and why ?

Any luck with the interview details guys ?? And others who received their invites before, have you completed your interviews ? If so could you please let us rest know how the experience was.

I'm having my first interview next week. I was lucky enough to get the insead email early. but my interviewers didn't have time until right before the deadline.

Same here... Both my interviewers are super busy. Will have my 1st interview on Wednesday and 2nd on May 31st, right on the deadline.

Don't fret. The interview deadline seems to be correlated with the interview invitation date.

Mine also Mid June. Seems like it is a quick turn around for an admittance or rejection decision time.

Or how fast they can find alumni interviewers. Because I got my interview invitation a couples of days after you.

interesting. at various MBA fairs INSEAD representatives advertised that they have quite a big alumni network in Russia. it seems now they're having difficulty assigning interviewers. anyone based in Russia or Ukraine here, who already got interview details?

Well, Russia is not a small country, plus they gotta find people who willing to give you an interview, and match your profile. It is more works than you think. Everyone is busy, plus scheduling meeting date is a nightmare if you get someone at the upper management level.

Hi Guys, I am not sure if this question has been answered earlier on this topic so kindly bear with me. I am an Indian with 6 years of work ex in USA. All my education has been in schools where english was the primary mode of education. Based on this do I get a TOEFL waiver? I really want to apply with R2 so just want to ensure I have my basis covered.

I have IR as my coordinator too and have not yet received any interviewers information.
When did you receive the pre-selection mail? In which country are you?
