What should my GMAT score be to get into INSEAD?
I also want to know how long and what kind of experience do you need to apply

@Dahyun ­- INSEAD has a very diverse class, and as such, there is no magic score or profile.

Broadly though, INSEAD's (GMAT Classic) average is around 710, so aiming for 10-20 points above that, with a balanced sectional split would be good. If you belong to an overrepresented demographic, a higer score would help.

Similarly, a balanced professional (work-ex range of the class is 3-8 years, outliers exist) and personal arc, with international exposure and Extracurricular involvement, would be valued.

I know this is a generic answer, but if you share more details of your profile/ background etc, I can share further feedback.

­Usually within 2-3 weeks, after which (if you're invited to interview) you'll be asked to schedule interviews with 2 alumni. For R2, the final decision notification is Jul 5th.

I got an email from my AO on 16th April to schedule interviews with my interviewers. I reached out to them that day itself but did not hear back from either of them and hence my AO had to assign two new interviewers today. I have emailed them but I am nervous whether they will reply to me or not. My deadline for interviews is 7th May. I was told that its normal for interviewers to not acknowledge the email. But I worry that the interviewers look at my resume and application and think I am not worthy of their time and hence they don’t bother to reply to me. I don’t think they have an incentive to take the interviews any way. Is there? Like are the alumni obligated to take the interviews or is it up to their discretion and they can choose who they want to interview or not. I am approaching my deadline and so I am very nervous and making up stories to accept this situation. Somebody please shed any insight if they can :please:

­cottonmouth great question. I am a former INSEAD MBA interviewer.
INSEAD alumni interviewers take their job very seriously, and only a small percentage of alumni, those who can fulfill this commitment sign up as interviewers. It is not normal for interviewers not to confirm the invitation to interview. If you find that the assigned interviewer has not responded to your email even after 3-4 days, you should inform the admissions committee. This allows the adcom to evaluate whether the alumni interviewers are taking their jobs seriously or not.
If you have reached the interview stage, you have already proven yourself to the admissions committee and should not worry about the alumni interview. Put your best foot forward and have an honest conversation with the interviewers about why INSEAD is your dream school. FYI: The alumni interviewers are already informed by INSEAD adcom that the assigned candidate will be contacting them. The interviewers do not really have a say in who they can interview unless the interviewer has scheduling conflicts.

You should just chill out. Sharing below links to some deep dive strategies on how to handle INSEAD interviews (You can also take ideas for the alumni interview from my video interview preparation guide).

hopeful99 if this is for round 1 then I had asked for an early decision - AJ mentioned that she has put it in my file and that they will get back to me in May. I followed up also but no reply.

Oh so they gave different deadlines to different people? Is 7th May for the people who didn’t hear back on the original deadline?
