For those interviewing, the interview is fairly conversational but I have heard that some interviewers kind of put the screws to you in terms of your goals: are they realistic, how would you implement any entrepreneurial aspirations, etc so be clear on the details of your plan. Research your goals if anything is missing in your story. (on Google but also chat up those in the industry)

Thanks for nishantd88’s and Hideto’s advice. I will keep waiting for a few more days.

Also big thanks for sharing your interview experience, nishantd88! I read the good cop/bad cop approach as Hideto did. Was nervous for it but feel a bit relieved now. Thanks!!


Hi ch751202,

Have you heard back form the interviewers yet? Seems like many are in the same boat of having interviewers not revert after 24-48 hours from the initial outreach email!

One of my interviewers replied but not the second. I’m planning to give it a couple more days and then call him.

Hi all, I realize that many of you may be preparing for the TOEFL on a short timeline. One of my clients successfully went from a 98 to a 112 by following this approach. He prepared for 10 days while on vacation.

​​Hi Farrell,​​

First I used the official TOEFL IBT test material, I purchased 1 volume (I guess there are 2 volumes) each includes 5 mock tests.

It is a simulation of the real test (some retired questions from the real thing) and I made sure to do every test in the morning so my mind will get used to that (my exam was set in the morning ) since i am not a morning person.

For the speaking i relied on NoteFull from You Tube , it is a free resource and it is very helpful since it breaks down each of the 6 questions and provides the best strategy to answer any question in the TOEFL.

I made sure to do 1 mock test almost every day for one week, and that’s it.

One last advice, whenever she gets to the test center, let her make sure to come very early, so she can starts early as well and not get distracted by the noise ( for example , when I had the listening part last time , some people had the speaking and it is kind of very distracting )

I wish her the best luck.

Thanks

Hi vayusena! Congrats!!!

I think it is usually two interviews but if INSEAD scheduled only one, they should have their reasons for doing that. Just do well for that interview and don’t worry too much! :)
