Hi - I received an offer too (v happy) but can’t access the https://gmatclub.com/chat admit group either because it’s full. Any any luck getting in via the ‘all applicant’ group?

Interesting,did your profile change between R4 and R3, in terms of test score, job title, or international experience?

So I got dinged last cycle by IMD and INSEAD after interviews. Now got offers from all schools I applied to incl. INSEAD.
Main changes:
- GMAT from 640 to 710
- Better prep in terms of my goals
- Increased ranking in Bachelor and Master (was not aware I am #1 of class for both - put in top 10% before)
- essays exactly the same

No Changes in job/ international experience what so ever. There was not so much time in between R4 last year and R3 this year.

Do any R3 admits have any information on scholarship decisions from INSEAD? As I understand they come out a week after admission, which should be around today, no?

I applied R4 and I am doing the alumni interviews this and next week, and in case I get in I'm absolutely terrified that because of covid part of the program will be done online. I'm giving up a six figures job and aim at the Singapore campus to ideally stay long term (am European), I don't want to throw all that money to sit in my room for months taking online classes / virtual group calls with people I never met in person.

I'm guessing that (in case of acceptance) trying to defer my intake from 21J to 21D will be a no-no, and same for delaying the first down payment to see more clarity in the covid situation (not that a month would help but still)?

It seems that Singapore is doing a lot better with this than most countries, yes it's possible but I think it's unlikely. I will agree, it's such a short program, even a couple months is a loss. We are all kind of bonding over a common problem, it might not be catastrophic to meet over Zoom. There are some positive reviews about it, greater participation, in some odd way it might create more intimacy seeing everyone face to face, if the classes are small. Anyways, is there a way you can further your goal with LinkedIn, online networking, like pre-pave those relationships via Skype and all that, before meeting in person? There is so much that one can do before having feet on campus.

That said, if you feel it's too risky of a proposition, I would encourage you to mention this to your AO, the opportunity cost and why virtual might put you in a distinctly negative position, and see what they have to say. I would do it before the interviews, so you don't waste anyone's time.

From the decision tracker, I see that one applicant, who applied in R4, from Switzerland got an interview invite on April 14th.

I'm a EU citizen, and I had the last interview about two weeks ago!
I will be based in Singapore but at this point I don't even know if I can get a student visa given covid, and I really can't see how 4 months from today everything is back to normal. It would kinda suck very much to spend a year and 150k on an online program. Anyway the acceptance deadline is end of May (which is also my deadline to quit my job if I want to leave by end July), I will start all the preparations but will wait to pull the "no-return" trigger.

With the evolving situation of Covid 19, it will be difficult to get visa. Has the school communicated anything for sep intake? Will the classes be online? Is there any option to defer?
