Interview went well and was fairly relaxed. Seems more like a conversation than an interview. Will post a debrief later.

Hi Guys,

Interview 1 done today. It went OK. My guy was a bit older (2003 alumni). We had a brief chat before getting into it when he opened laptop and said 'well I have a few questions I have to ask and take notes for' so it felt a bit more formal than it could've been but it wasn't too bad. Was generally a question and answer session as opposed to a conversation. Questions below as far as I can remember them. All in all it was about 50mins.

1. Tell me about your career
2. What do you know about the course? Why do you want to do it?
3. Why do you want to do an MBA to go into Consulting?
4. What sort of international experience do you have? Do you speak any other languages?
5. Are you intelligent?
6. Do you lead either at work or in personal life?
7. Are you emotionally intelligent? Do you understand people's feelings?
8. How can you justify the expense of an MBA? (thought this was quite interesting and was actually one of my questions for him)
9. Post MBA plans and how it would help me.

There were a couple more along the way but that was the main crux of it. At the end I asked a couple of questions then we finished up and he said he thought an MBA would be good for me to do with my background. It was very hard to judge how it went (I'd say I normally have a realistic view of how job interviews go). It wasn't amazing and free flowing but I don't think I did badly enough that he'd have me down as a definite 'no'.

Happy to answer any questions but it did seem to me that there were clearly some set questions that they needed answering. I guess every interviewer will have a different style/way of getting the answers out of you.

Sounds stressful!! How are you supposed to answer number 5?

I have my first this Saturday with a 2010 alumna, and the second one next Tuesday with a 2002 alum

INSEAD does not give interviewers a specific set of questions to ask. Also there is a big difference in questions between the two interviews.

Cheers!

Indian with AO IR still waiting to hear back. Anyone else in the same boat? Is it reasonable to assume if I haven't heard back by now its probably a no, or do they give out invites till the last possible second?

This is nerve-racking lol. I suppose if one hasn't received the rejection email there is reason to be hopeful..

Another thing is I have not seen more than a handful of responses here of people having received a reject/interview call yet.

I think I've read somewhere that AOs can vary on when they send out invites/ rejections. For example I received my invite more than 10 days ago now but some current students I spoke to received on the deadline day

Nope from East Asia. Another applicant from east Asia was rejected a few days ago. It seems it's up to the AO on when decisions go out

Sorry to hear zinzin.
Keep your head held high! Did you apply to other schools? Do you mind if I ask your stats? I've heard INSEAD is super competitive for Indian applicants....
