Hi harshutd1993

INSEAD has been the final holdout school for accepting the GRE, and just started doing so this past June. One really can't be sure if they are doing that because enough evidence of GRE as a predictor of academic success has been established (what most schools would say) or if it's because they do not want to miss out on top applicants with only a GRE score.

Yes the GRE is indeed easier in terms of quant, however it's possible adcom have adjusted for that when reviewing the application. My advice would be to do the GMAT unless there is a great disparity between the two scores; or if you just cannot get any traction with the GRE. I have often had applicants take the GRE if the GMAT is just not crackable for them and it has worked out well IF they are also underrepresented where the school can get a more diverse applicant, enough quant to show they are not at risk of flunking out, and the GRE score is not published for that school so they school can benefit from the diversity but not take a hit to their numbers.

All of this to say, not sure, not a mind reader - they just started in June and i am sure the school will say that they do not discriminate against GRE applicants but I think schools often say the PC thing. is it true, well who knows.

MBA PREP COACH,

Do you think there is any preference for gmat over gre for INSEAD MBA considering INSEAD ( and almost all b-schools ) have started accepting GRE for MBA ? ( GRE Quant is a bit on the easier side than GMAT quant ).

Round 1 admits, how are you thinking about funding? Any thoughts on Brain Capital? It seems too easy and its not clear to me exactly how much of future income will be paid back to the fund. Does anyone have experience or further information?

Yes, it would be great if anyone could touch upon the funding aspect.

Also, is there a WhatsApp group for admitted students already? Otherwise, we could create one.

Also interested in funding. Do we find out about scholarships via the portal or mail? I have not yet received any physical mail from INSEAD although they said they would be sending something. Has anyone else received any letters or packages from them?

Nothing yet (from India)

Do they send a rejection confirmation as well if your application isn't shortlisted for interviews?

They've started sending out emails for India (atleast those who have IR as their AdCom).

Got dinged, not a major surprise. INSEAD was a reach school.

Good luck to everyone with the whole process! Hope you all make it :)

Yes, I don't recall the number of weeks after you submit your application but you will receive a giant packet of stuff with regards to scholarships.
