Hi loneo3006!

Good to see you moving forward with the application!
The recommended minimum is 7.5 so I think you are fine :)
Are you applying for R1 Jan 2020 intake?


Thanks tsuxinhah and MBAPrepCoach, I knew about the requirement but just wanted to check whether a better score would improve my application (I definitively could have done better at this test) or whether admission jurys don't really care about IELTS score and just want to make sure you tick the minimum requirements.

Though, your first replies are already reassuring.

I see what you mean. INSEAD strictly mentions that academic capacity is assessed through GMAT and GPA so I think they really don't care about the score - just want to make sure that you will be able to communicate effectively :)

hope this helps!

Hi loneo3006 if you know you could have done better on the test, I would go ahead and take it again if doing so will not sacrifice application quality. If you have not even drafted essays yet and plan to apply 2/20 then your time is better spent doing that of course. Your score meets minimum standards but like all tests the higher the score the better off you are. All things being equal between you and another candidate who has a high language score the spot would go to them. The reason I think I would retake it is because many candidates do not feel awesome about their performance in the video questions; you will want adcom to have the best possible view of your communication abilities to hedge on this.

I was in your shoes a couple of years ago when I needed MBA Admissions Consulting services and guidance from current students and alumni but always faced the problem of either the admissions consultants being too expensive to afford or not knowing the right student/alumnus from my target school who can guide me. I graduated recently in Dec 2017 from INSEAD and realized that this needs to change and democratizing the consulting process makes much more sense. This is why I have started Easy MBA Admit - An Admissions Consulting service for the people, by the people. Why should you be interested? Here's why:

1. The most affordable admissions consulting service with services starting at $100 (mostly to cover operational expenses) - because we believe more in paying it forward and helping future MBA aspirants rather than making huge profits.

2. All services offered by recent alumni/current students from top B Schools like INSEAD, LBS, CBS, Kellogg, Stern, IESE, Wharton, etc. motivated by goodwill and who were in your shoes not too long ago and hence know how best to position your application.

3. Proud to say that so far we have had a 100% success record at placing aspirants in their target schools. Examples include INSEAD, LBS, IESE, HEC Paris, CBS, Wharton, Kellogg, Stern, NUS, NTU and more

4. Get your Free Intro Call (https://www.easymbaadmit.com/services-1/free-intro-call) with no obligations attached. If you do book any of our services we have a money back guarantee in case you don't like the service.

Hi Team,

I am applying for Jan 2020 intake in round 2. Planning to submit my application today.
I had a question about the video interview that we need to submit after this. Am I supposed to submit it within 48 hours of my application submission (April 9) or within 48 hours after application deadline (April 19?)

Surprised nobody has replied to you. The video interview deadline is 48h from application deadline, not your specific submission. That means that you can submit on the 9th and have more than a week to prepare the interview. Best of luck!

Thanks cb230191, oozefish congratulations on completing the application and I confirm 48 hours after the deadline. Of course you don't want to play games with this too much because the servers are kind of overloaded around that time of course. So I would strive for 36 hours at the max. cb230191 not too surprising that INSEAD have not yet responded to something posted less than a day ago because it is the weekend.

Hi!

Could you please help me decide if I ought to give my GMAT again/focus on my application/apply to Sept 2020?

My current GMAT is 680 (Q46 V38 AWA 6 IR 7)
I know that my quant falls short here and I'm curious to know how much of a deterrent it would be for AdCom.

Quick profile:
Indian, Female
BBA (GPA: 3.5/4)
4.5 years of experience in tech companies in India (sales, marketing, brand management). Have travelled abroad for event marketing and have consistently worked with overseas clients for overseas markets.
Co-curriculars: Travelled extensively (about 15+ countries), selected for a youth conference organised by the Russian government, certified scuba diver, college dance club head

I have my goal set on Singapore and to eventually work in tech in Asia.

Thanks in advance!

Hi shreeja27 yes, unfortunately you will need to pull that up a fair bit to be competitive at INSEAD. The average GMAT there is now 711 and so I would recommend 721-731 as your target score. Also, they state a need for you to be in the 70th to 75th percentile for both verbal and quant. I would strongly recommend you err on the side of caution given the immense competition there is for your profile and hold yourself to 75th percentile https://www.insead.edu/node/7371
Always maximize the GMAT - don't stop taking it until you feel there is no way to further improve. Indians who win seats at INSEAD have pretty crazy high scores unfortunately. As a woman, there is a bit less pressure, but not much.
