Does anybody know when does the AC start to inform about final decisions for R2??

The deadline is 7/7. But, does the AC always wait till the last day?


As far as i know usually they start calling 2/3 days before the deadline and can inform till 11:59 pm on the day of deadline

So perhaps this week is ok but next week would be difficult to focus at work

You're absolutely right, aksgmat800! I expect most calls to be made between Wednesday and Friday of next week.

Hello krutik123!

There should not be any invites for R3 before the calls for R2. So you guys should receive your e-mails between the 10th and 13th of July.

Hey LanCeloTe, I applied to the Diversity scholarships and two others for Emerging Markets. No idea of what my actual chances of getting a scholarship are in case I'm accepted, though.
What about you?

INSEAD encourages you to limit your number of scholarship applications to 5. You can receive up to 2 scholarships and the average amount of scholarship is roughly 15K EUR. 28% of students get an INSEAD scholarship.

There are lots of essays to write (I think 3 was the minimum)! Put as much into them as you did your application :)

Hi! sorry for the delay!

I have applied for the maximum! 5 scholarships!! I thought that if I were extremely lucky I could land half of the tuition... However, as mentioned above there could be a limit of two scholarships....

Well, there is indeed a limit of 2 scholarships. As they put it on the e-mail we receive when applying:
"Be strategic and apply for those where you feel you can make a difference and where you fit best. Only rarely one person can get two awards."

That means you need to be TRULY exceptional to be awarded 2 scholarships (and have real financial need of course). Remember that being awarded only 1 is already a big deal (only 28% of the class).

Fellow R3 here! Submitted on 12th June and did the video interview on the 14th.
Just like latinoinasuit mentioned and seeing from what people in R2 shared before, I think the invites should be near the deadlines (2-3 days before).
Fingers crossed for all of us!

Any other R3 participant here?

R1 WL candidate here ... anyone received any news on the WL front? Admissions told me I could expect movement by the end of June when deposit deadline for R1 accepted candidates (26/6) passed.

I believe AO EM may start to call R2 applicants tomorrow.

At R1, she made first calls one week prior to the deadline.
At R2 interview decisions, she sent first invitations one week prior the deadline.

AO IR also contacted me exactly 1 week ahead of R2 Interview notification!

I hope she does the same this time
If not, next week is going to be really long...

Please keep us updated!
