I didn't fill the table of professional experience properly..I thought I am not supposed to write roles within my existing company. Turns out I don't have to write my existing role but I still have to write my previous roles in the same company :(
Insead is my dream school but my mistake will probably show that I am not interested or was not serious :(

Same mistake as well. I had 3 promotions during previous 4 years, I'm also co-founder of a few internet projects in my region. Fulfilling all positions at my current company eliminates majority of the rest ones. Going to make call to INSEAD to clarify.

Made a call to INSEAD admissions. They were very friendly and asked me to send them proper pdf. with things that I would like to fix/change in my application. So @kartick11, feel free to give them a call. Better to solve it. Please bear in mind that majority of them are OoO.

Just to put some minds at ease, I received an email from INSEAD about the executive education offered and I haven't applied yet (R2 applicant). I downloaded the brochure before off INSEAD's website and it was mandatory to enter # of years of experience. Wish you luck and happy Easter!

I am not going, but curious which campus your attending Singy ou Fonty and where are you located? I'm debating if I should attend the one on May 13, but would rather save the money especially with the weak Canadian dollar.


I'm attending the Fonty campus visit (supposing I get an invite for the interviews...).
I'm located in Frankfurt, but I'm French and quite often in Paris, so not much of a stretch for me.

Coming from Canada sounds like much more of a commitment, to be honest I think I would have a hard time justifying it if I were in that position. :P

R1 applicants, please share how many words was your answer to the long and short term goals job description. I am finding it challenging writing less than 300 words, especially when I read about the importance of linking personal/unique experience with goals. At the same time I find myself not respecting the "short answer" note next to the question.

Generally stuck to a 300 word limit with a bit of a twist. I thought the Job Essay #2 (what would you be doing if you stayed at your current position) was rather sufficient with a shorter word count and found the #4 (goals) to be a bit tight with the 300 limit... So I wrote 200 and 400 words, respectively. Personally, I thought it would be reasonable to keep the balance around 1,200 word count across the 4 essays for short answers..

Seems a few people got the invites today... I would have thought most AOs were out today though...
