Hey guys, getting killed in R1, dings all around. I am thinking about putting in an app for R3 at INSEAD, are the chances pretty slim like top U.S. schools in R3?

Thanks yo.

Yes chances are quite slim in R3 for INSEAD. Last intake, when I applied, only 15% of the seats were left for R3. If you have a strong profile along with great multicultural experiences, then go for it. Otherwise apply for R1 next intake to maximize your chances.

Why don't you apply for the Jan intake? Round 1 is due at March 5th, and for the Jan intake you are able to do the summer internship?

I agree with the previous poster. Going for Jan intake looks quite logical at this ponit of time. R3 is suicidal and i strongly suggest you not to apply unless you have some really unique profile. But again, in most of the cases R3 is not recommended.

Everybody discourages to apply in last rounds. So in last rounds there are very few applicants. In this case the chances can even go up comparing with R1 and R2 with the myriad of bright applicants.
What do you think?

What do you think?

and following on from that logic, Round 1s should be more competitive because lots of people defer their applications until the first round

I agree with this.

Where did you get the 15% stat?

BTW, there are 4 rounds for the September intake, and 3 for the january one.

Is one round more competitive than another?
Approximately the same number of places are allocated to rounds one and two. Fewer places may be allocated to round three and four.

Guys,

Do you think that there is a big difference in terms of competitiveness between:
-R2 for January intake (deadline in May)
-R1 for September intake (deadline in October)

I would prefer to start at Insead in Jan', but I also want to maximize my chances of getting in. R1 deadline for Jan' is in March, but it's definitly to late to take the Gmat and extension classes, write excellent essays, have them reviewed and polish EC's.

What do you think?

I think these 2 rounds are quite similar maybe a slight edge on R1 Sept...but not much
