Yeah, it's already end of the month and we have yet to see any movements. so the theory that INSEAD reviews the waitlist every month might not be accurate. Unless we see something later today, that is.

Thanks

So what do you guys think is the cap per nationality for this intake? 50 cuz it's roughly 10% or more like 60?

Hi All!

Wait-listed R2... French/31/700/8year in various (heavy) industries in France and Australia

I applied only to INSEAD, mainly because I was dreaming of that school for many years, and applied just now when I felt ready for it.
Sure it is hard to be wait-listed: I was so much into it. Really believed in it and I had my next months all planned in my head for this... now, being wait-listed, and probably many of you feel the same, I must consider first the possibility that I won't make it, and re-assess the situation.

That leads to my question: what other MBA would you consider? If I don't get INSEAD, I still want the MBA experience, and I will be looking for similar schools, ie.: wide international exposure, top tier MBA, entrepreneurship and strong human connections (network quality and life beside school context to make friends).
I haven't much looked at it before, but I come to consider 2 spanish MBAs: IESE and IE...

What are your MBA alternatives? For those who just applied to INSEAD, are you looking now at other MBAs? Anyone to comment on those 2 MBAs?

Don't get me wrong: I still want INSEAD badly! (many other frogs wait-listed out there? I guess competition will be hard for us!)


Sorry for you guy. I know how it is like, I have applied twice to INSEAD.

The first time with really dumb essays but with a f****** good gmat -> interview then ding. Three years later, I had pretty good essays and the same gmat -> ding without interview !

The first time I applied only to INSEAD. Retrospectively, I think it was not very smart (no offence). Indeed, there are many French engineers who apply to INSEAD. Thus, even with a very good application, at the end it is just a lottery.

Today, well, too bad for INSEAD, I have been accepted to HEC Paris and I am waiting the NUS (Singapore) answer for the HEC-NUS double MBA program.

My two cents advice is that if you really want to enjoy an MBA education, you should apply to other programs without paying too much attention to the marketing of these business schools. You have to be the real added value of an MBA program and not the other way round.

Good luck.

Thanks habeebee for all these useulf information. Does anyone know how many people generally apply for the last round? and how many people are admitted from this round? Is it true that only few people are accepted from the last round?
If the adcom accepts the same number from the third round as from the 1st and 2nd ones, we will easily reach 450 and no waitlisted will be called!! hope i'm wrong...

One should not get too worried by the MBA connect count just few days after the decision notification.
Most crucial is the count of people who actually pay the deposit to SECURE their place.

Based on R1 figure, I predict the MBA connect count to hit around 380 then to fall down to 350-360 by end of March ( 25th March is payment due date and it take a week or so for people to start disappearing off the MBA connect).

In R1 lot of movement was seen on 28th Jan for waitlisted candidates which was a few days after deposit deadline of 24th Jan for R1 admits.

Don't panic and have patience. MBA connect numbers do not help to make educated assumptions as none of us know what "diversity" AdCom is looking fr actually!
