Based on trends from previous years, all decisions of admits and waitlist for round 1 should be sent before the interview invitations for round 2.

So yeah, we'll have to wait a little longer...

Just going by the numbers - is it safe to say the J-term has a lower acceptance rate than the September term?

Also R2 interview invites are supposed to be out by Jun 2 - but I am assuming that most will be notified before then. Is that correct?

Number? What numbers? lol
INSEAD does not publish the numbers so we can only believe what the admissions committee tells us, which is that the competition is pretty much the same between January and September intakes.

Most of the invites are usually sent during the last week, so between 29/05 and 02/06.

Not sure if INSEAD releases admission numbers but GMATClub user data endorses this observation. Historically, acceptance rates of J-Term applicants have been lower than those of Sept applicants.

Does anyone know when R1 decisions likely to trickle in? Deadline is 24th May. Can we expect calls from coming Monday?

The deadline is May 26th -- I expect starting from Monday the decisions will be rolling in with a peak on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday.

Thanks for letting me know. Our database was displaying May 24th. Not sure if it was incorrectly entered or INSEAD changed the deadline later. Good luck to everyone waiting for R1 decisions.

Hi everyone.

R1 applicant from Africa. Received the call on Monday, 15 May and got my welcome pack via DHL yesterday - official now. Ecstatic! Still sinking in... and holding thumbs for scholarship outcomes. Fonty start for me if I get the funding sorted.

Thanks for everyone's inputs on this thread.

Keep the faith - the calls are coming!

I enjoyed opening the pack so much and the excitement of not knowing what it would contain.

I don't want to spoil that feeling for the others on the chain. Let's keep some suspense?

Hey, I'm an R2 applicant. My cousin, who eventually got in for the 16J batch, told me that for both the interview and the final admission call, she received notification on the last day only. So I'm not expecting to get an email until 2nd June (esp. since I submitted almost on the last day). Unless it's a rejection.

Incidentally, does anyone know why they ask for information on alumni in the family on the application? Is it a pro or a con?

Hello Everyone,

I am a prospective candidate for JAN 18 batch for INSEAD. I have a GMAT score of 730. I belong to an overrepresented demographic and my GPA is not on a very bright side. I just wanted some advice on giving GMAT again. Is it worth giving it again and achieve a 20 point increase? or this would be enough. I have background in R&D for automobile manufacturing.

Thanks

And I'd love to know what DingKingPin considers an overrepresented demographic? Is it the R&D? Because then I'm in the same boat.
