I reckon by now we closed admits for R2.
We’re past the 50% mark! 2 more rounds to go

Hi everyone!

I received the invitation for interview on webex today, no Assessment Day for me though. I know it's being said that it is not necessarily a bad thing, but i've been reviewing and most of the admitted folks attended an AD. Does it mean that my profile isn't that appealing to the adcom?

This is so much fun. People get invited to 2 interviews and AD and they worry, people don’t get invited to AD and they worry.

AD basically means IESE wants to see more of you, cause there are some character aspects they aren’t clear about.

Most ad have about 30-40 students there , locations are nyc, sao Paolo, barcelona and Singapore.
That means 120-160 students in ad, but a hell of a lot more apply and way more get Interviewed. In short: nothing to worry about, just nail that interview.

Hello everyone! I submitted my application in R3 and received my invitation on March 11th to interview and attend the AD in NYC. Anyone else going to AD in NYC?

Hello,

There were around 60 people on AD in Sao Paulo. Note that there are two dates in Sao Paulo. So, in total, there were around 120 people from Latin America (AD in Sao Paulo is focused on these people).

It not everybody, but it is a huge amount.

On the other hand, I agree that to participate in is not mandatory, but really shows how interested you are. Sum this up with a good interview and quantifiers aligned to Class Profile, your chances of being admitted are high.

Best,

Is there anything that I can prepare before the AD at IESE? A Presentation or a case? Or will the assignment be handed out on the day itself?

if there is a case to prepare, you will usually get a link to download and prepare it a day/a few days ahead of time.
our ad consisted of a part we could prepare, and then a part that was handed out the day itself.

as to preparation: just be relaxed and have fun.
to quote one of my fellow admits:
Quote:
called my mom afterwards and told her "I don't care if I get accepted or not, i had so much fun"


while i don't quite agree with the not caring if you don't get accepted or not, I do agree with the sentiment.

To those that admitted the Hong Kong or Barcelona AD -

How was it?
How many people attended?
Did they give any updates/additional information?

I unfortunately couldn't attend due to an unavoidable reason.

I was in Barcelona for the AD. It was quite fun and not a lot of stress. Around 70 people attended, you had to do a group presentation, cases vary from AD to AD. Not really much other information- application decisions either this week or after Easter, depending on how the admissions team gets on (some people are traveling/ on vacation).

I believe the BCN AD was last weekend? You probably shouldn't be expecting news this week.
from what we've seen, usually it's AD - 1 week rest - decisions (all along the week)
only times i've known it to be quicker was when the AD was done within 1 week of the decision deadline.

I'm not sure when the NY, SP, and SIN AD are. I'm guessing next weekend, which would mean decisions likely start to go out by the 22nd, with the decision deadline being the 30th i believe

During the AD one of the ADcom told that they really try to process the R3 application before the end of this week as IESE will be closed in the week of the 15th.

I don't think there are AD's in NY, SIN and SP for R3 and R4 only in Barcelona, but I could be wrong about this.

Received my admit last week, but I am sure there will be more, probably after Easter as the school is closed this week. Good Luck!
