Apologies for going quiet - went for a champagne-fuelled lunch to celebrate :) I am 99% likely to go to INSEAD so you'll see me in singapore most likely ;) But would be great to be able to say "I turned down HBS".

I got dinged. They told me they see potential but that I need more professional experience. They will save my application and encourage me to reapply in 2013.

Is this the usual ding or something different? Has this process been heard of?

My profile is: German/M/740/3y in Consulting/26y old

My coordinator is A.N. and the information came via e-mail.



Can someone else who got dinged please summarize the content of their mail? Thanks

I got dinged but they didnt tell me me to get more professional experience - I already have 9 years :)

My ding mail was quite generic - your application was strong but due to the competition we cannot offer you a place in this intake. Wish you best for the future, etc.

I think the fact that they have asked you to reapply means that they like you and you almost made it. If you're really interested in reapplying, you should and I believe you'll have a good chance. They don't tell everyone to reapply (they didnt ask me to) so take this as a good sign. Good luck!

I'm just wondering why Oxford ever dinged you... !!!
Btw, me too I'd like to have the sweet headache of deciding on HBS and INSEAD!

I would agree, there's a note somewhere on the INSEAD website saying that re-applications from rejected candidates aren't welcome, so if they specifically invited you to reapply at a later stage it's a very good sign that they do like your profile, would like to admit you but feel you're just not quite there yet with work experience.

Best of luck, I'm sure you will make it!

Am looking forward to seeing you in Fonty too!
Also joined the Facebook Group for Class of J '12, and am planning to go to the info session in Fonty in June.

Guess the next steps are to win the lottery now and then find some accomodation!

Best of luck with that! :wink:
I've looked already but for some reason neither gold nor oil seem to be available in a German basement!
Robbing a bank unfortunately doesn't seem to be an option given INSEAD's focus on ethics, but I'm sure we'll all find some way to bring up the cash!

Does anyone have an idea when we'll get details on the next steps?
