Hey guys ! Guess some of you must've been done with at least one interview by now. How about sharing your experiences ?
I am done with one interview, and I must say it was a good experience. The whole interview was more of a conversation, wasn't structured at all, contrary to what I had thought. Infact my interview started with Why INSEAD? It went on for good one hour.

My next interview is after 2 weeks.

I had my second interview yesterday. Really impressed with both interviewers: intelligent, fun, successful. I really hope I get accepted.

My first interview is on Friday. Haven't scheduled the second one yet. They are still trying to sort out my second interviewer, the original interviewer couldn't do the interview.

Nice. You must be one of the first ones to have completed both interviews. I believe we are supposed to hear back by the 20th of Dec.

I have completed both my interviews and it was indeed very pleasant and conversational. Both were about one hour long and from what i understand they were only checking the veracity of our application and evaluating fit
(feedback from one of the interviewers). both of them gave me feedback at the end saying they would recommend me to the adcom. just wanted to check if others have got any inputs?

Hi - I need some quick help on how to submit scores to INSEAD. What I did was:
1. Go to mba . com
2. 'Submit Score to School'
3. Search option - Insead
4. INSEAD- MBA Full-Time, FountainBleau
5. Pay 28$

Now why I am confused is cause I couldn't locate the option to enter the code INSEAD mentions on its website. Also,I couldn't see INSEAD Singapore as an option. (I am applying for SGP)

So, whatever steps I have mentioned , do they seem to be right? Should I go ahead and submit my score in the very same manner?

it seems fine. you will get an email at your registered id mentioning that the score was sent to insead in a day or two. insead is indeed listed as one campus only and no separate option for singapore. teh code is only used for locating the school but you can also do that teh way you mentioned (by searching for it).

I had my first interview yesterday with the CIO of a leading investment management company in South Africa. He was very nice It wasn't as hectic as I thought it would be. Most of the time we discussed the interviewer's experiences at INSEAD. The whole session was about an hour and 20mins long. Asked the usual 'why' questions but indirectly.

Next one is tomorrow. Keeping fingers crossed.

Lol! - Funny!
But, I think you should let it be. Even they would know it's just a spelling error!

Had my first interview today. Interviewer was very pleasant and the interview itself was very conversational. Lasted about an hour and a quarter. Discussed the same questions that have been mentioned here before. What worries me is that I didn't get any hint of whether the interviewer was going to recommend me or not. Fingers crossed. Have the next one coming up shortly.

Had both my interviews this week. One was 50 minutes, one was about 40. I don't see much reason for either to give negative recommendation but the fact that neither told me anything at the end really makes me wonder!

Finished both interview today.
Interviews went fine. Standard questions really - career progression/why MBA/career goal/free time etc. But the short duration of the interviews worries me. Lasted for only 20 and 30 minutes.

The interviews were held at their offices. So I am not sure if were genuinely busy or I just bored them to death :) ... Anyway fingers crossed!

The same thing ! Both my interviews were quite conversational and unstructured. And I didn't get a single vibe/reason for which the interviewers would give a negative recommendation. But neither of them told me that they'd recommend me :| !

Finished both interviews as well.
They both lasted a bit more than 1h. I received immediate positive feedback from the first interviewer. The second interviewer was very friendly but did not say whether he would (or would not) recommend me. When rethinking about the interview, I remember some good things that I said but I also remember stupid things... really don't know how it will end up.
Other question, I see on insead's website that the deadline for round 2 is today. Do you think that they compare round 2 applicants with round 1 applicants about whom they hesitate ?
