Hi everybody!

Being one of the first wait-listers for the INSEAD September 2011 intake, I thought I'd start this thread. I'm sure that all of us could use this thread as a group therapy able during this nerve-recking anticipation for the final (and hopefully positive) answer.

This is what my admin coordinator told me on her email:

I would like to reassure you that, with competition as fierce as it is for a seat at INSEAD, your application does not need to have a specific weakness to be on the waitlist. It is for this reason that we are not asking you for supplementary information to strengthen your application.

Being invited to interview means that you were one of the stronger applicants. However, this part of the selection process does not guarantee admission to our MBA Programme. The Admissions Committee makes a decision to admit a candidate, not only on the strengths of the candidature itself, but also bearing in mind the diversity we are aiming for when "crafting" our future class.

Being offered a seat on the waitlist simply means that, although strong, when compared to the pool of applicants for your intake, your application was not as strong as others were.

Having said that, you are most welcome to add an update to your application, if you feel that there is some important information missing that would add value to your file.

I hope I have helped you understand the decision that was made on your MBA application to INSEAD.

He guys,
here there are the new stats:
total 507(m-362)
Indian 62(44)
US 59(35)
French 56(48)
Korean 14(12)
Singaporean 15(7)
Chinese 32(15)
Taiwanese 6(4)
Bulgarian 4(3)

So, keep your hopes up. It's a good news that there are only 507 admits. I guess about 20-25 of them will choose
not to participate in the program. Best of luck to all of you!

Hey guys,
I don't exactly know how to interpret it, but from looking at both this thread and the SEPTEMBER 2011 INTAKE thread, I gathered the following:
1) 24 people reported that they got accepted
2) 21 people got into the waiting list.

The reason could be:
a) There are allot more waitlist applicants who were willing to register to the forum/share their status
b) By some statistical coincidence, there are allot more wait-listed applicants in this forum
c) This round's waitlist is huge!

I sure hope it's not C...


noamk,

be careful with comparing two different data sets. people will naturally gravitate to whichever thread is applicable to themselves and register their thoughts. e.g. after the fact people will log in and post for the first time that they're accepted to insead, just like people will do the same for being waitlisted. you'll have people registered in one thread that aren't in the other...you have to take one sample (where the two threads overlap, or just one) and stick with it for consistency's sake.

a better approach would be to take the sept 2011 intake roll-call as your sample, and figure out the statistics from that alone (ignoring the people who have registered here, but not there). who was accepted, who was waitlisted (to your knowledge), and who are you not sure about?

without having done the math, my hunch is that the waitlist is just as large as previous years (insead says it's comparatively small); and there's nothing to read into the number of waitlisters registered here compared to the number of those accepted registered in the sept 2011 instake thread.

also, it's good to look at the jan 11 waitlist thread -- probably a more positive point-of-reference for us waitlisters. my numbers show 65% admit from the waitlist, with >50% of those eventually admitted receiving notice within two months of the original (waitlist) decision. also keep in mind that the jan 11 intake does not compete with american mba programs, so one would think that the jan yield is historically higher than the sept one -- leading one to believe that the sept intake waitlist will see more action unless insead manages waitlist size as well between the two intakes.

sorry a lot of the thoughts are off-the-cuff, and i haven't really thought out / crafted a totally comprehensible or authoritative response. let me know if you (or anyone else) requires clarification on my thoughts above.

to all: remain POSITIVE. look at the jan 11 waitlist thread. there might not be a whole lot you can do to improve your candidacy, but know that insead's yield is not 100%; there will be people who decide to go to hbs, stanford, kellogg, lbs, etc instead, and the adcom will dip into the waitlist to fill diversity gaps. i might not get in, but i guarantee a significant % of those registered here will (and as i mentioned, within 2 months of now). that is unless for some unforseen reason r2 applicants are much stronger than r1 ones (which is NEVER the case).

it's just a crapshoot -- unless you discover the cure for cancer or solve the crisis (or crises) in the middle east. as a slightly pessimistic side, one thing that i'm doubtful of is that accepting more responsibility during the next 6-8 months will improve your standing on the waitlist. there's only so much you can do in 6-8 months that will substantially impact your candidacy, and the adcom has already said it's more about diversity than the strength of your application. you just need to happen to be the female kyrgyz tuba player on the waitlist for when the other one the adcom admitted decides to go to LBS.

The below mentioned details are copied from main INSEAD thread and have been submitted by habeebee:

Update for those interested:

Count of people registered on the INSEAD network for the class of '12J:

Total: 146 (108 Male)
Indian: 21
American: 25
Canadian: 12
French: 17
Singaporean: 5
Chinese: 7

These numbers represent the # of people who have been extended an offer by INSEAD and have registered on their MBA network, not people who have necessarily accepted the offer and paid the deposit. Hence, this number could/will keep changing.

Hope this helps.


Just wanted to capture it in this forum so it can help us..

are you notified of WL after an interview or prior to being selected for an interview? thank you.


All the best traveler. It seems most folks in R1 who got interview invites 10-15 days before the deadline actually got accepted and us who got interview invites close to the deadline are majority in W/L

As you belong to the first group I think you will have higher chances to get admitted, off course if you do well in your interviews!!

Hi all,

According to my calculations, starting form the assumption that only the guys that were active during the admission process on the insead sept intake thread (not me)should be taken into accont as is more likely that they will report wheter reject, admission or waitlist decisions, it seems that 50% of those interviewed got in and 10% precent of those were waitlisted.

I think that INSEAD goes with +/- 5% error in their yield.

looking at the R1 movements, I'm guessing some people could receive calls/emails tomorrow ........ R1 waitlist moved exactly after 1 week from deadline for payment ......... nevertheless, this time it could be different because INSEAD's R2 results came much earlier than many competitive schools and some people must have asked for extensions ....... so 4th to 8th April could be the real window of movement ........ best of luck to all .........

in the mean time, if anyone can update stats from MBA connect, it'll be helpful ....... thanks

Well, I guess there is 497 places if the January and September takeins are equal (given that there are 994 students), so there is still some (small) chance to be accepted.
