So my admin coordinator emails me saying that they dont have my original GMAT score report for my 2nd attempt. This is 2 days before decisions!! So I have asked Pearson Vue to do the needful. Not sure what to read into this ...? Are they intending on making an offer and just want to have a complete file since if they were going to ding/waitlist me this wouldnt be necessary?

Anyways -- seems strange that they would not have noticed this issue way earlier.

Hey sm332, I wouldn't read too much into it. However, the fact that your admin coordinator called you two days before the deadline for something that is kinda inconsequential (they have your official score for the first and unofficial score for the second?) to the decision is strange. I do think it may be a good sign because I don't believe if INSEAD intended to ding you would they even bother to call for an original score report.

Hang in there ... I have a good vibe about this!

I am not stressed at all to be frank .. will try and call Pearson Vue to see if they can expedite the score delivery since the coordinator indicated that the decision wouldnt be released till the file was complete.

Yes she has the official score for my first attempt and the unofficial score for attempt 2. Given that they both netted to the same overall score - I am not sure what the hangup is ... anyhow.

apparently someone already got a call today from the BW forum...making me nervous a bit that the calls are coming out early and i haven't received one yet...

i woke up at 3 am last night (eastern time) and thought somehow in my slumber that it was already thursday morning and that the calls are supposed to be coming in. so i tossed around in my bed for a while and waited for the call...nothing happened and when i finally woke up fully for work, i realized it was only wednesday lol...oops.

guess i won't be sleeping much tonight.

Congrats! Where are you located?

Seems like the calls are coming out in batches over on the BW forums. I'm beginning to sweat now since someone in North America already got the call...

my girlfriend just mentioned this offhand but i thought maybe it's relevant...what if the calls are going out in alphabetical order? my last name is near the end of the alphabet.

anyone that got calls with a last name that's in the second half of the alphabet?

Anyways - my coordinator indicated that she should have access to the score in 2-3 days and would try to give me my decision on Friday if the GMAT score comes through. All of my interaction leads me to believe that the decision is already made and that this is just a file completion exercise. I am hopeful that they would only do this if they actually intended to make an offer. For them to ask for this last minute only to ding me would seem strange :roll:

I'm in Asia. So I guess they started Asia, Europe then NA?

Btw, anyone else also admitted to both Oxbridge/INSEAD? And decided? I'm finding hard to make decisions here. (And yes, I know it's a good problem to have!) I want to go into entrepreneurship - have a love for Cambridge, Respect for INSEAD...and admiration for Oxford.... Any perspective from anyone in the same position welcomed. Or anyone accepted to INSEAD vs. other top choice school.

Cheers!

Don't have the problem, but I think INSEAD is a good step or two above Oxford. I think in both Europe and Asia, INSEAD is probably the top school and has the best recognition. The only concern for me is that INSEAD is a 1Y program

I told you I had a good vibe about it. Just call me inspired! Haha! Congrats sm332!!!

I think I remember that you are Indian, right? I can't remember if you mentioned this but are you based in the U.S.?

May I ask what are your career goals post-MBA?
