They count as 1. 408 is the total number of people that have registered on Connect. I have just counted their primary citizenship here. I have excluded 2nd and 3rd citizenships.

Hi iccotdis

Thank you very much for the stats, really appreciated. I collated the data you provide before with the new one and the results are below. Apparently there are a couple of rejections. Is that possible or maybe there is another explanation.

Hi Jonas84, I checked the two data sets and indeed there are these differences. I deliberately didn't pull the names from MBAConnect, so it would be impossible now to figure out who is missing. I have also checked the dual/triple citizenships and these don't account for the discrepancies. I think some R1 admits would have pulled out. R2 deadline was today, so there might be some more rejections.

Hi anyone has idea why there can be 61 people of one nationality by just R2?
I was under impression that one nationality cannot go beyond 12%. This means that no more Indian in R3/R4? How unfair for those Indians who are applying in R3/R4!

I am not sure. I was under the impression that one nationality cannot go beyond 10%.

I guess it depends on the number of applicants from the region.
Also, Many accepted students take-up other offers and INSEAD takes that into account.

And yes this is very very unfair.

I am an R3 applicant from India and this figure is scary. Is there a possibility that a few of those have dual nationality or are there Indians with dual nationalities other than these 61? Can someone with access to MBA Connect post the number of Indians from last couple of batches?

I would be very disappointed if I was refused a seat just because I did not apply in R1/2 as I was switching countries and I hope that won't be the case. Fingers crossed! :)

is ~400 the total number of candidates who have accepted the offer? what's the total number of headcount for the intake and how much offers left for R3 and R4? is the current trend in-line with historical trend?

From what i have understood.

this number 404 is total offers made. Not those who have accepted offers.

we can expect about 100 more offers.

I had read somewhere. Don't remember or find that article now. It said that:
- INSEAD makes offers based on the number of applicants they get and they keep trends and statistics from previous admissions.
- So even before starting to review the application they have a target in mind (which we don't know) for example 45% R1, 30% R2, 15% R3 and rest 10% in R4.

The total number of students is also not fixed. sept 2016 intake has 490. total 2014-15 graduates (both intake) were 1003.
- Also for past many years, not all offered seats were accepted. this year it won't be same. with INSEAD reaching the rank #1 and all. probably they didn't anticipate that.

Hi guys, don't read too much into the data please. This is the biggest problem with any data analysis - not knowing what the assumptions are and consequently, drawing wrong conclusions.

I am sure INSEAD Admission team members are experts in managing the # of intakes from each country that they admit. None of us will ever know what they have estimated and the assumptions they have made. I am also sure they have taken into account the #1 ranking this year and I am quite confident that R3/R4 candidates would not be at any disadvantage.

As prabhakar mentioned, this list represents the number of people who have been offered a place, not necessarily the number who have accepted. So, this will change a lot over the coming months.

As far as Indians are concerned, the trend is as follows: {(16J 58),(16D 60),(17J 47),(17D 61)}. The total number of places offered varies a lot as well : {(16J 561),(16D 529),(17J 527)} NOTE: the numbers for previous intakes are from the final data available in Connect. There are no data for intakes before 16J.

The only thing I can say at this stage is put a very strong application, keep your fingers crossed, prepare for the interview, relax and stay away from the forums. :) We all know how frustrating this entire process is.

Also, I have realised that posting such stats causes a lot of confusion and anxiety. I will post another list after the R3 results are out in Sept. In the meantime, if you need any stats, I will suggest you PM me and I will try to reply as soon as possible.

Fingers crossed for all of you and hopefully we will all get to meet soon. I am starting in Fonty, btw.

Thanks mate! Really appreciate the help and I totally agree with what you said. I am already done with my interviews so I have called in all my shots. Now is the time to look ahead and be prepared for both outcomes. I have a preference for Fonty too so hopefully, we will meet. soon :)

Hi,

I'm way too late to join this discussion. I applied in the last 2 days of R4 (26th July). My GMAT is 710 with total 10 yrs of experience, last 6 years in the consumer goods industry. Going by the high number of offers that have been already made to Indian applicants, I guess I should not keep any hope of getting an interview call :(

Do they atleast inform the candidate about whether application has been shortlisted for interview or should I just wait till the deadline to hear from them? No response from them means no interview call is what I assume.

Pls help as the wait is killing :(

Rgds
