Not sure if this is entirely accurate, but activity on the forum suggests there were many more people accepted than usual, which may play into our favor with a short waitlist with R2. Let's stay optimistic.

I think we may get news during the first deposit deadline. It must be around the new year

I was thinking mid December when R2 interview decisions start being released. At least thats what I gathered from the previous wait list forums.

I was going to wait until waitlist confirmation email and send them updates from my job... wait a few weeks until the waitlist moves again. If I dont get a phone call then I was gonna look for another letter of recommendation.

INSEAD Waitlist September 2015 Intake [#permalink] New post 29 Nov 2014, 09:48

This post was
BOOKMARKED
Maybe I'm over analyzing. You tell me.

Harvard's yield rate (the %age of people who turn down offers) is at 89% (11% reject offers). Stanford is at 87%, and Wharton/MIT/Chicago have somewhere around 70%. INSEAD doesn't publish yield rates, but I would say that 80ish percent would be a conservative, reasonable estimate. It could be lower, but lower would be better for us. The article assumes lower than 70 percent because reporting lower yields would reflect poorly on the school. Previous intakes have accepted roughly 200/200/100 for R1/2/3 respectively. This year is different because there are 4 rounds. I think we can reasonably assume that the school will still frontload the majority of the offers, and 150/150/75/75 wouldn't be too far off the mark. If we consider the gmatclub community to be a microcosm of MBA applicants, the 26 who are admitted (source: data table for the Sept 2015 intake thread) are roughly 1/6 of the offers sent out. The accuracy of this statement is dependent on what margin of error INSEAD works with, which would be essential in determining how many people make it off the waitlist. Since we don't know this number, there is no possible way I can accurately go forth. Stay with me though. Let's work with a few numbers here. Assuming INSEAD works with a 10 percent margin of error (165 offers sent for 150 seats) and the 80% yield holds true, we're looking at around 120-132 acceptances and 17-30 spots open. 5 of us have updated our profiles to reflect we are on the waitlist, so we can assume around 30 people on the waitlist for this next review. I think we have an ok shot at making it off the waitlist.

Our chances would be better than the January intake because many US business schools start around the September/August timeframe. More start dates, more possibilities for people to pick and choose which schools they go to.

Lots of assumptions, but let's stay positive.

@wonhok, your analysis is optimistic. Coming to the statistics in the GMATCLUB, out of 35 candidates interviewed 27 were admitted and only 3 were denied. Is the interview to admit rate generally high with INSEAD?

To be honest, I got the feeling that dings come with interview decisions and once you're interviewed, you're either accepted or waitlisted.

I think your argument is only flawed in the senses that they have quotas for countries... In my country Insead is a huge school, and LBS and the americans are not. So I think the yield rate for my country is higher than that of Insead as a whole, and therefore I think I have less chances..

Good point. Bottle necked or not, I'm thinking possibly sometime next week we might see movements. If not, definitely NLT 24 December, since the Admissions office will close from then until the New Year, which would mean a monthly evaluation is complete at that point.

Any news? The folks that also got accepted by LBS should be making their choices now, and hopefully some new spots will open.

All quiet on the American front.
I suspect end of this week/early next week we might see movement.

E-mail signature from my AO:

"Please note that the INSEAD Degree Programmes Admissions Office on the Europe Campus will be closed from 24 December to 1 January (inclusive)."

I think an eval will happen before then, but the last I heard about MBAConnect numbers they were at 150, which seems high for 500 spots across 4 rounds.

I suppose that as people get invitations from other schools and accept them, new spots will open.

I read somewhere they would admit 150 in the first round 150 e in the second, and 100 in each of the last 2.
