If it's something I can handle in 10 minutes or less, sure legendfunk

The scholarship application for Round 2 is June 3rd, so it's a little bit of a bummer that you're not taking the GMAT sooner.
https://www.insead.edu/master-programmes/mba/financing/scholarship-guide

You can indicate that you will be retaking the test and give them the test date, and offer to update your them with the results. I do think if it's soon after the deadline they might consider an improved result.

Of course this might get a little awkward if the result is not better. You can just take the test and hope for the best as well; however without giving them notice that you have a pending result, that seems riskier to me.

Given that you're taking the exam again for other applications, I’m of two minds in recommending that you take the exam earlier than you might be prepared for, for this purpose alone.

If you're not getting close to the maximum attempts then you might move forward with this plan and then retake it again later if you feel the score does not reflect your full potential.

Does anybody know whether submitting a better GMAT score later in the application process will improve the chance of getting a scholarship?

I am in the interview process for R2 and also studying for GMAT and going to take a GMAT exam in 2-3 weeks in case I don't get accepted to apply for other schools.

Recently, I received the email regarding scholarship application from INSEAD so that this question popped up in my mind.

Thank you


Hi Farrell,

While we're on the topic of scholarships, I have a few questions about the process and how I match the criteria - let me know if I can PM you.

MAPP Pangolin SO SORRY!! I am not working on an INSEAD app this round and it seemed like the due date was early to me so I researched it on the INSEAD site and unfortunately looked at the R3 deadline in the column for Jan 2021 instead of 2020. Yes - June 5 - embarrassing. Sorry to cause anyone any confusion. As you were! Good luck! Ugh...I really need to stay off the computer until I am more rested and/or caffeinated.

I'm currently finalizing my app for R3 - under pressure!
I have a question I'd love help on - where do you explicit your motivations for INSEAD in particular? I am only applying to INSEAD and find it complicated to highlight my specific interest - could I make use of the optional essay for that?
Thanks and good luck to all!

Job Essay 4: Discuss your short and long term career aspirations with or without an MBA from INSEAD.

And also, optional should be about intended contribution and fit in my opinion, unless you need that space to tell your sad story about your bad grades, etc.

I don't think I would actually state out right that you're only applying to INSEAD.
That has kind of a "don't break up with me or I will kill myself" quality. It also compromises your bargaining position when it comes to financial aid.

I think it would be much better for you to detail why there is a very strong fit and why it's your top choice.

How you will contribute to the school ( contribution is one of the four criteria) and as an alum.

Just to avoid confusion.

This year, 4th Job Essay is "Discuss your short and long term career aspirations with an MBA from INSEAD." - 100 words
And is not same as last year - "Discuss your short and long term career aspirations with or without an MBA from INSEAD."

Cheers!

Hi everyone,
I have a stupid question - does one need to reply to the email from the AO confirming upon the receipt of my application or is it just a generic "no reply needed" email?

I don’t think it’s auto-generated. I replied to my AO but she didn’t answer back. I don’t think it’s got any weighting so you’d be fine if you don’t reply.

Does anyone know how long it takes to hear back after interview? I had mine last week. The interviews were to be completed by 10th June so I’m guessing after the 10th but wondered how long it actually takes?

Guess you have already applied. If you are invited for interview, it would be the perfect time to talk about why INSEAD, for both career and personal development.
