Hello! I used to be quite active in this forum when I took my GMAT earlier this year.
I just wanted to share the good news with everone on this forum who has helped me with MBA aspirations. I have been admitted to INSEAD's Jan 06 MBA intake.
The process was quite straight forward. I applied in the last week of March for Round 2. In late June I was notified that I was selected for interviews. I had two alumni interviews during July and August and I found out last friday about the admit.
I am quite excited at the prospect of starting to school and goodluck to everyone going through the process now.
It is certainly good news gayathri. I am currently in Paris and I will also be spending Xmas and new year in Paris. I could maybe drop by Fointainebleau during the holidays if you will be there by then. Let me know but most importantly, congratulation! _________________
Paul, what a great idea! It would be great to meet you! I will keep you posted. I might be going to Fontainebleau in the last week of september to look into housing etc. I will let you know once its confirmed. What are you doing in Paris? Having some fun before you join LBS?
Praet, thanks for the wishes. I will definitely try to stay more involved. I moved to Germany recently and am still trying to settle down here and now I have another move creeping up on me. On top of that my German classes are killing me
Hjort, thanks. You were very helpful during my application process by answering all my questions!
I am now back to London for class start. I was in Paris to spend some time with family and indeed you are right, to have some fun before school starts. I have been in London since the beginning of September, finally found a place to stay and then went to Paris for vacation. I visited INSEAD in march of 2003 but to visit it with someone I actually know from there will be even better. I believe there is a train that gets me from Paris to fontainebleau directly so I will certainly drop by if I do go to France this winter. We'll keep in touch for that. Also let me know if you decide to visit London! _________________
After reading MBA Journal by an Insead Alumni, i get the Opinion that 10 Months is too short for an MBA and Insead may not be a good choice for Career change ( Although Insead recruitment statistics show 73% made a career change )
As you have already weighed the pros and cons....Could you please share your thoughts..on.. why Insead was your choice
The only business school that I applied to was INSEAD and it was a combinaion of personal & value decision. My husband & I moved to Germany in July and I did not want to apply to any US schools due to the distance.
The fact that it was a 10month program was a major + for me. I am really not planning on a career change. My academic background is engineering but my professional background is in Marketing & Management. A 10month program also meant less financial burden and also less time away from my spouse. My long term interests are in VC and in Europe INSEAD seems to have a very good alumni network base in the VC segment based on the conversations with both my alumni interviewers and other alumni I have talked to.
Forgot to add that being a Jan intake helps as it gives me a two month break to potentially look for short term internship opportunity. This is not available for the Aug intake. Also, I am quite interested in their campus exhange program with Wharton and the Singapore campus.
Great Gayathri. INSEAD is great. Hearty Congrats. Very Happy for you.
I am doing well at Purdue. I got half time grad assistanship and some cash scholarship and now have a full ride. Its very competitive here (and I would expect the same in all schools) surprisingly the standard deviation in every course is just 1. I think all are doing well. Its very enjoyable learning new skills and tools and an MBA is all worth it.
Venksune, glad to hear that you having a great time at Purdue and congratulations on the scholarship!
I am quite excited as well. I have been talking to some of the alumni here & they have been extremely friendly. Its been good so far and I hope the trend will continue
Thanks Praveen! How are you doing? Have you app'd yet? What schools are you targeting? Goodluck!
I dont know about rest of Germany, but Munich, were I live rt now is great! It is so close to German alps and there are some beautiful lakes around here as well. People seem nice too. The biggest problem is the language, but I am learning German rt now, so hopefully it will get better.
Hi Fresinha! Thanks for the wishes and goodluck with the app. Let me know if I can help in any way.
Twixt! Wouldnt that be great. My fingers crossed, I will look forward to seeing you there. Have you already had your interviews? I just got back from Fonty yesterday. Was there to look for housing etc.
