I am afraid this tread might be biased, but I will still present my dilemma.

I have been admitted to three schools: INSEAD, Copenhagen Business School and University of Florida (UF). INSEAD was my #1 school, and I was super-excited to be admitted. But UF has offered a 90% scholarship on tuition fees, resulting in the difference to be approx. EUR 65,000.

What to do? Is INSEAD worth the extra EUR 65,000 or will I do OK with an MBA from UF?

All replies are welcome.

Congrats and an enviable position to be in.

I admittedly dont know much about UF. However, I think to make your decision you have to weigh what it is that you want to do when you finish with your MBA. I believe as with most large state schools (I could be wrong in this case) that they place generally well within their region. I also think if the companies that you want to work for recruit on campus at the school you are going to, then you should have at least a decent shot of joining them post MBA.

With that being said though, INSEAD was your number one school. There are reasons for that. I am sure most of us on this thread have similar motivations for wanting to attend. I would still go to INSEAD unless there was a clear reason and advantage (besides money - this is a life long investment, spread out over the rest of your life the difference of 65k should be minimalized) to attending UF.

I dont know if that helps or not. I could also be way off here. Anyways just my .02

Guys, I understand that interviewers receive only a copy of our profile but not our essays. Am I right?
Thanks

I wrote to my admission coordinator last week and she told me that it's not necessary to send your essays but it's up to you if you wish to share them with your interviewers. Now I wonder what the best strategy is...

I live in Europe and plan to work and live in Europe post-graduation (i.e.: not in Florida so recruitment at UF doesn't really appeal to me). My only concern is the money... I try to tell my self that I only live once etc. and that money is paper, paper is wood... and we got a lot of wood :-) But it is still a tough decision. Thanks anyway for your point of view.

Go to Insead. That's it. Nothing to think about. 65,000 dollars over a 30 year career is peanuts.

Only provide what's asked for. Let the interviewers decide what info they want to ask you in person, that's what the interview is for.

Good luck mate ! I heard from the guys who got admission that the interviews last for around 90 mins or so and they usually ask general questions. They do not grill people in interviews !

I am planning on applying for September 2012 in Round 3.

From other forums, I see that people who have registered to Insead MBA connect can view the number of admitted candidates and the nationality distribution. Considering the fact that, more than 4 weeks have passed since the admit notifications of Round 1, could someone please share the number of admitted candidates on MBA connect?

Thanks

219 admitted so far (not sure if they remove the individuals who did not pay for the deposits).

Do you know whether people with dual citizenship are counted twice?
Would it be possible to have detailed figures per nationality?

Thanks :)

I applied in R2 and was asked by INSEAD to rewrite my GMAT and apply for R3. Has anyone experienced this and had any success?

I assume you have a real chance if they specifically asked you to do so.

219 admits so far: each person is counted once. Which nationality are you interested in?

Whis: you cannot get a full list of admits by nationality, but one can restrict the search so as to see it one by one. As with "phdes", I can also give you the number of admits of the country you are interested in.

650 - the discrepancy between verbal and quant was highly skewed to verbal (panicked on the math section). So I'm guessing that's what I need to adjust.
