I didn't think I would be posting on this forum but my day has finally come! I've been a long-time follower of this forum but never got a chance to get involved. Hopefully this will change moving forward. :)

I received a call yesterday from A-MB. I will be starting in Singapore campus. Looking forward to meet those who will be starting at Singapore! On the other note, I was thinking about attending Fontainebleau campus for Open Day. I thought this would give me the opportunity to see the Europe campus, check out Paris :-D , and also network with wider fellow students who won't be starting at Singapore. Anyone doing the same (visiting the non-starting campus for Open Day)? It made more sense to me since I know I will be spending time at Singapore.

Congratulations. Looks like a few Torontonians got into INSEAD. We would find a time for a get-together.

I'm 29/M/Canadian Chinese/700 GMAT/6 WE as Sales in Finance

I got the notice of being wait-listed on the last day of round 1 decision date, Dec 16th.

Didn't do anything else, other than a lot of nail biting.

I got accepted on Friday Jan 28th.

Hi everyone, I am also from Toronto and admitted for September! I was so happy to get the call.... only to have my phone die right in the middle of Anne-Marie talking... Thankfully I heard the most important part - that I am in! I am starting in Singapore. Hope to meet you all soon.

No activity on the decision day :shock:

Looks like all decisions were released on Wed. Or are there still people on GC who have not heard back from INSEAD?

Bad news from my side....just got DINGED! Oh well, looking at the bright side - they let me know early enough and I didn't waste another few days waiting. Those who're interested - I'm in the Middle East and my coordinator was IR.

Happy for all the guys and girls who made it - good luck to everyone. And hope the ones still waiting get positive news soon.

Time to look forward to LBS and Judge.



Sorry to hear this thfc. Can you please just let me know where are you from?
thx

As an American R3 candidate that is afraid that INSEAD has already met it's American quota through R1 & R2 admits, can someone provide the breakdown/stats of those accepted already. Thanks!

just wanted to post and encourage those applicants Round 3, who interview with INSEAD. I interviewed in Round 2 and got a ding.

I made it to Ross and ISB after interviews. will probably be taking up Michigan Ross.

I think it is very important for you to be balanced while applying to INSEAD.

INSEAD compares itself with top 15 US schools (I would not compare it with a top 10 US School in any way).
Also it is the only school in the world that publishes videos of comparisons with Harvard.
Other schools dont distinguish or need to prove anything.

Also I wasted a lot of money flying down to another city for interviews......please dont be overenthusiastic.....INSEAD has many alumnis in India (unlike other business schools), as most of their alumni return back to their home country!..........so ask for an interview in your home location to minimize other expenses.

That said, for those indians who want to return to India, just try ISB...its probably going to be better rated than INSEAD very soon.

Also INSEADs application fee is a lot and the least they can do is organize interview locations in the place of your residence.

Good luck, but after my interviews......I ask everyone to keep many options open....and whatever will happen will happen for the best..............INSEAD or no Insead ( and im glad I didnt make it now!)...no loans (a few scholarships) make INSEAD prohibitly expensive and a very bad European job make the ROI doubtful.

Also for all its stress on international experienc...this is nonsense.....many applicants have simply worked in another country for a while (read US or the west), this does not make you any more international i think......also they make you waste your time filling out a scholarship form (round 2) before the result....absolute waste of time......you could spend that time applying to YALE which is a better college.
