I know that it is annoying but I would very strongly recommend that you retake your GMAT. Get a tutor, a study group, mix it up.

As an Indian I'm actually a bit surprised that you were wait-listed and not dinged with that score. Did you receive a 75% or better on both sections? This is their threshold.

It's not really a quick process they will continue to ask you if you want to stay on the waitlist up until December,
If you're not admitted sooner.

I would make sure to lay out plans for other applications but also look for opportunities where you could improve for this application (gmat and others identified) in addition to ways to create a compelling update letter sent with strategic timing.

R2 applicant from India. Anybody knows the acceptance rate for people in wait list and by when do they generally inform you the final decision?

I don't want to give my GMAT again. Have a 690 score, female candidate from non-profit. Just hoping that I hear from them soon for a rejection or acceptance. your 2 cents will help!

Your odds are good if you're strategic about it, thinking through the four criteria, where you might fall short and remedying those areas. At the same time its a competitive game and you don't know how many people have applied with your profile....so I would recommend that you put together round one applications. Hope for the best and prepare for the worst.

Bonjour loneo3006 sincerely enjoyed your GMAT Journey story. That dog gif is absolutely hilarious. Did you decide to matriculate at INSEAD over HEC?

Hi guys,

I received an admission call from AN today. A very short phone call but that you see coming from a distance with the +33 indicators or a "Fontainebleau" information that flash on your mobile screen if you're french like me.
AN is nice and efficient, the phone call doesn't last for more than a minute.

I truly understand how the waiting can be a torture and I sincerely hope it'll come ASAP for all of the Gmat Club sailors, the applicants and the waitlisters.

Good luck to you all, I share with you my GMAT story that led me here for those who are interested.

Hi MBAPrepCoach,
Super glad you liked my Gmat Story :)
I've chosen INSEAD.
What would you have chosen for yourself?

Hi loneo3006, probably the same! I look at my client's goals with these things; if they are one zillion percent sure they want to work in the francophone world, and have entrepreneurial aspirations, maybe HEC but otherwise INSEAD. More powerful global brand to be sure. Have a great time, if Fonty, you will be so helpful, leading all the French excursions :)

***Congratulations*** to all Round 2 admits. For those of you who are disappointed, please remember: this decision is not a measure of your worth. I would say most dinged candidates have more of a communication problem than a profile problem.

As someone who does ding analysis for these, if your GPA and GMAT are in order, you or your recommenders might have failed to communicate how you fit the 4 criteria. These errors are fixable! but of course you must take a new approach.

So keep your head up, your mind open and get to work on those R1 apps, soldiers.

R3 applicant here. I received my confirmation that I've been selected for an interview a few days ago.

Could someone confirm that almost all of the INSEAD scholarships are only for R1/R2 applicants? I've been looking through the scholarship pages and that seems to be the case but was hoping someone else could confirm this?

Thanks!

Hi! I'm a R3 applicant as well. I read that most scholarships are available for R1/R2 only, very limited options for R3.

Did you get your interview invite through e-mail or phone? I'm stilling waiting to hear back... hoping to get an answer this week.

Yes, sorry to say, your eyes do not deceive you. However focus on what you CAN do rather than the missed opportunities.
Do your best on a diversity scholarship application; if you did a good job on your app, you can repurpose some of it for this.

Thanks

MAPP - June 4th. But I wouldn't read too much into it... I've been told by some others that the response I received was unusually quick...

Is there any information (or hypotheses) on the conversion rate from interview to admit? Eg. If 100 people are invited for interviews, roughly X will be admitted?

I believe I have a strong profile and a diverse experience, hence the wait list. Are there any other ways that can compensate my GMAT Score? I have already given my GMAT 4 times with 690 as my best score. I'm afraid if I give it again and not score, it will only decrease my chances of acceptance. I got 76% in Quant and 74% in Verbal. Almost border line.

Hi workout,

Thanks for sharing that link, but I'm a bit confused. It is showing there are already 200+ applicants at various stages for the September 2020 intake, but R1 for that intake hasn't even closed yet???

Any new invitations for R3? Gauging by previous deadlines and interview invitation dates, it should be around this time that the invitations are sent out.
