Calling all INSEAD MBA applicants for January 2015 Intake! [#permalink] New post 28 Apr 2014, 18:20
Good day!

Please note that the Round 2 application deadline to submit your file is 28-05-2014.

If you are not ready to submit your application for Round 2 and prefer to wait until the Round 3 (deadline of 25 July), you will still be able to access the form you are completing now. Please note however that you might not be able to access the form during the Round 2 deadline period as the system shuts down momentarily to stop any late Round 2 applicants from submitting. You will be able to re-access it shortly after the Round 2 deadline, to continue completing it.

Please note that once you have missed all three rounds of a particular intake, your form and all its contents will expire and not transfer to the following intake.

Hope this helps!

Regards,
Leizel

Hi,

I just submitted my Insead MBA application for class of 2015D today (R2). Normally, how long does it take to know about interview decisions? Does INSEAD wait till the deadline to get back or is it done before that? Also, if they do decide to interview me, how much time will I have to prepare for the actual interview?

Hi Abhinand,

You will still receive your decision notification around the same time as the others as selection is competitive, and based on existing candidate pool. There is no advantage/disadvantage in submitting your application early.

The dates and deadlines can be seen in our website: http://mba.insead.edu/admissions/dates_deadlines.cfm

It will be communicated with you via email if you have been pre-selected for an interview. You can conveniently schedule the interview with the Admissions Officer who will also assign the interviewer for you.

Hope this helps!

Regards,
Leizel

I have a silly question: INSEAD deadline for R2 is "May 28th 2014 at 12:00am ".
So am i correct in assuming that its actually Tuesday 27 May 2014 11.59pm?

Hello,

Apologies for the slight confusion on the technical glitch in the online form. Actually, to be included in a specific round, applications must be complete and submitted by midnight (23:59 Central European Time) on the day of the deadline (28 May). In short, the deadline is until the end of 28 May 2014. This statement can be found on the Application Deadlines page in the website: http://mba.insead.edu/admissions/dates_deadlines.cfm

Hope this helps!

Regards,
Leizel

Hello Leizel,

This is coming a bit late, but I thought I should clarify this anyway. I've interviewed in R1 and am now awaiting the final result. INSEAD is one of only two schools I applied to, the other being the Indian School of Business (ISB) as back-up. I had originally planned to apply for the Sept intake, but on the advice of a few alums during an info session at the Singapore campus, decided to defer my application to the Jan intake, where I could get the opportunity to intern after 4 periods.

I got the admit call from ISB in the meanwhile, and since their classes start in April, was compelled to join. I highlighted this point to my interviewers at the very outset, and assured them that I would drop out of ISB, if admitted to INSEAD. I also elaborated on the aformentioned reasons for applying to INSEAD after ISB. To further stress on my commitment to INSEAD, I had an alum of 12D, with whom I've interacted extensively over the past year to better understand the school, write an additional third recommendation.

Do you feel I have done enough to alleviate any concerns that the adcom may have, or atleast followed due process in such circumstances? I didn't write to my admissions officer directly since I felt I wouldn't be able to explain the full context of the situation, and therefore decided to explain to my interviewers.

I applied on the 28th of May. I am very excited and am looking forward to next steps.

I am also a bit concerned currently as I have encountered a series of technical issues that I am worried may affect the outcome/completensss of my application:
• I had a problem uploading essays online and therefore I needed to send them via email
• My referees did not receive an upload link when I submitted my application and therefore they emailed their recommendation letters (PDF Form) as an email attachment instead

I wonder whether there would be anything I can do to check whether I am on track before it is too late (Wednesday is the deadline for references and I would like to make sure the emails from my referees got to the right person)?. I would very much appreciate if you could point me in the right direction. Otherwise, if you think that the best solution for me is to remain patient and wait for the school to contact me confirming the status, that's fine too.

Thank you!

Dear Kartikeya,

Apologies for the delayed response. It is highly advisable to liaise directly with the Admissions Officer in-charge of your application as they are the only team deciding on deferral requests and final results. As stated in the website's FAQ's on Admissions, in truly exceptional circumstances, the Admissions Committee may grant a deferral. All requests should be made in writing and will be reviewed on a case by case basis.

Regards,
Leizel

Hello Lenam,

Apologies for the delayed response.

You will be assigned to an Admissions Officer once you have submitted your application and she will contact you within two weeks of your submission to verify completeness of your application. So long as the status of your application changed from Submitted to Posted, it means it has been validated by the Admissions Team in charge of your region.

Apologies for the technical glitches as these are faced usually during the deadline itself due to the heavy traffic in accessing the online platform. It is highly recommended to submit application earlier than the deadline for a smoother application experience.

Regards,
Leizel
