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 ?


I don't think they would do that. That totally defeats the purpose of having two different rounds ( but again, that's how I think :wink: )

I submitted the app as well for Round 2. It has been really quite here, I would have expected to see a lot more candidates for Round 2.

Apparently we will get a reply the same day as the world is meant to end. Does anyone know at what time is the apocalypse, Fontainebleau time?

Had my second interview yesterday. Went pretty well. Was about 1.5 hours long. Conversational and unstructured - as in the interviewer asked all the usual questions but indirectly. Although no hint/opinion given on whether the person was going to recommend me or not.

Hoping for the best.

Haha good question. Come to think of it, I will actually be in China that day, so I have to remember to wait till the 22nd (China time). The world better not end before I hear my decision.

I am in for R2 as well. Any idea, when do they start giving interview calls? Is it on/before Jan 18? or all the invites go out simultaneously on Jan 18?

Just received an email from an admissions coordinator at INSEAD stating that my app is complete and ready to be reviewed for Round 2 on the September 2013 intake. It also stated that interview invites will be sent latest by 18th Jan - so this means we can expect something before the 18th for sure.

On an another note, it looks awfully quite here as far as R2 submissions are concerned. May be not many are reporting in Gmatclub anymore (new design or alternative forums)? For instance Thread for Yale/Tuck (that I follow) already has more than 350 Comments.

R1 applicants do you have the same feeling?

I haven't gotten any email from the AdCom yet. Just wondering if my application got submitted at all! :shock:

On responses to this thread, I have found European school's threads to be generally quiet. True for London Business School as well.

it has been the same for us R1 applicants. the number of people in applying seems to be small and hence not much activity. besides most of us are now in the wait and see phase where interview results are yet to come out...

When did you submit the application? The deadline was 12/05. They should get back to you in a day or two. Just hang in there!

That's correct. The activity for this round does seem a lot lower than Jan 2013.

I think all the interviews for R1 should be complete by now. I think Dec 7th was the unofficial last day to complete interviews. Hopefully they don't make us wait all the way until the 21st to hear back.

Good luck to all the R2 applicants. As MBAPangs mentioned, most of you will hear back on the last day. Typically tends to work like that.
