Hey subirroy. Congrats. Are you from India and is you admission officer JM?
I am also anxiously waiting for the results, so I am curious if we will also hear back by today or tomorrow.


Hey vsg, thanks ! and yes I'm Indian but I'm based in Singapore. My admissions officer is EM if that helps.


Congratulations to you Subirroy! It is great to see that you have been offered a place at INSEAD... you have put in so much effort for your applications and I am glad to see that it has finally paid off...

Hopefully the rest of the R1s will hear from the adcomm soon... all the best everyone!

subirroy YAY!

I'm super happy for you. If you don't mind can you list your stats, relevant qualitative info about you, and why you feel you were accepted. This will be helpful to other Indian candidates who often feel so defeated in this process.

I'm also tracking whether people put down Fonty or Singy as their first campus to see if this has an impact on admissions (because diversity)

Félicitations!

MBAPrepCoach I am sure the campus preference is not taken into consideration while deciding the candidacy for INSEAD. Its clearly mentioned in their official notes somewhere.

Thanks vsg, the head of strategy for a the biggest admissions consultancy (omitting name) feels otherwise, my former coworker. Thanks for the input but I would still like to observe this variable.

Thanks Farrel. Here goes - Indian chemical engineer, graduated top of my class, 72 months WE, 770 GMAT.
Working at a construction chemical company since I graduated, starting from a Management trainee in Germany to Product Management and sales roles in India, Malaysia and Singapore, which is incidentally where I'm currently based.

I think its not too hard to figure what clicked for INSEAD - the GMAT opened the door, and I believe my international work experience got me through it. Will be going to Fonty to move closer to my family who live in the UK and Germany.

Good luck everyone else :) I'd specifically asked for an early decision because it was too close to the Cambridge cut off. It was awesome of the adcom to oblige !

I just got the magical call. I am admitted to Fonty campus. I'm Indian, currently based in Singapore, working in Oil & gas last 5+ years in 3 different countries.
I think my international experiences + strong extracurricular made the difference.

Im super excited and good luck for all the others!

Does INSEAD usually call during local business hours? What happens if you can't pick up, do they just send an email? Thanks!

I think so. But I have also read about people calling back on the number, and getting the news via phone then instead of waiting for the email.
