Insead or reapply to Tuck & Kellogg [#permalink] New post 05 Sep 2010, 11:45
Hi, Alex, I applied to W/K/Tuck in the last season but the result is that Wharton/Ding, Kellogg/WL then Ding and Tuck/Ding but encouraged to reapply. Now, I am admitted to Insead for Jan intake.

I am from a really nontraditional&nonprofit sector in China, will it be a major problem to switch to MC/Industry through INSEAD? I am thinking due to its very short and intensive arrangement, I may not have enough time to build my soft skills, as I heard that the students are suggested to apply for internship BEFORE joining the class.

However, another problem is that I am almost 30, will it be a problem to switch to MC/industry in 2013?

So, what's your opinion?

Plus, does Kellogg value campus interview and re-applicant at all?

Thanks! :)

If you want to work in consulting or industry in Europe or Asia, INSEAD will do you just fine. An internship is nice to have, but not essential to switch into consulting.

Whether to reapply to the US schools comes down to your goals. If you're really set on working in the US right after school, you may want to reapply. If you're looking to stay in Asia or work/live in Europe right after b-school, then go to INSEAD.

I second that.

Sonne: Even next year its not 100% sure you will be through and you are already 30. INSEAD will provide you job when you will be 31. If you apply next year you will join the class of 2013 ( or 2014). You will get the job at the age of 33.

This way you will be having more work-ex post MBA after 5-6 years from now. Just my thought.
