Sorry to hear that

Do you plan to reapply next year? Or maybe apply to other schools in R3 or next year?

R3 is over for most US schools. may be next year, haven't thought about it yet. Since INSEAD specifically discourage reapplication, I am not planning to apply to INSEAD again.

thanks and I wish you have the year of your life at INSEAD.

sorry about that man..but really u don't know where ur opportunity is? I applied to many programs as I have to do my MBA this year. some of safe schools (as I thought) has dinged me. Ivey at western ontario: dinged w/o interview , Emory: dinged w/o interview...Yet, some of very stretch schools for my profile (Yale, Duke): accepted !!!!, INSEAD: invited!!!, Kellogg 1Y: invited!!! you really feel it just luck..or can't understand how the admission panels think..but overall..be relaxed, never ever regret things, whatever happen..nobody really know where is his opportunity? life is filled with many many chances ahead..and everyone knows that earning that top MBA isn't really a free ticket for prosperous life..NO..it is the safest way to just open doors...those doors can be opened by many things apart from MBA...wish u best my friend..

Sanjuro - Don't give up man there's something out there for all of us. If you want something so bad they you'll make it happen. Did you go on waitlist after interview? Did you ask them for any feedback? Or do you know of any weakness or typical attribute of your profile that you can work on?

Hi, have you considered IE ? It is an excellent one year program and it has rolling admissions. You would probably have to contact them about how to take their exam, but it's really worth it.

I think sanjuro9 has taken the GMAT already, so he wouldn't need to take the IE exam. I think it's either IE exam or GMAT, right?

The replies should start coming in now (as the deadline is friday).
I sent my application only a couple of hours before the deadline on March 21st.

I agree, the wait is insane! Hope you get your answer soon
The interview wait is behind me, but then the real wait will start after the interviews, when we await the big IN or OUT news.

All in all...6 more weeks to go (if we're the lucky chosen ones)

sorry guys for not responding to your kind words of encouragement earlier. Going in, I knew that I was putting all my eggs into the same basket. The initial plan was to apply to US business schools next year.

I took a day to take stock of the situation and my next course of action. A two year program that I start next year will make me too old; I am already past 30. I had never really researched options at Oxford, Cambridge and IE. Thanks for suggesting them to me. I did over the past week and happy to report that I did submit my application to Cambridge this week and will do so for Oxford next week. Haven't made up my mind 100% about IE. There is little to go about other than what is available on IE website.

As during my GMAT preparation, gmatclub (and that's you guys) has once again proved to be the rock of support during this whole process.

I am sure 5, 10 years from now, we will all be on our ways trying to make our mark in the world... and looking back, I am sure this community will be as much in the back of your mind as it would for me.

Thanks.

PS: enkie, i saw you on oxford forum. are you still torn between INSEAD and oxford or have you made up your mind. I would love to go on a local food trip with you and/or be a guest blogger on your site.

PS2: Completely made up question - if all of you were admitted to Oxford/Cambridge/IE/ESADE/?, which one would you choose and why? Keep the cost consideration aside when answering my question.

Sanjuro9, nice to see u back & prepare for other schools
Since I also applied IE, want to share some thought of mine.

Their MBA program has two tracks, one is Spanish, the other is English. I guess you would like to apply the latter.
The track also have an option of MIT supply chain program. I don't have much details but i believe this is sth like cooperation program that you could get two degrees at one time. If you are interested, you can write to IE and ask for details.

Compared to ESADE, IE is a much younger school, both of them have good reputation. Together with IESE, they are considered the big 3 B-schools in Spain. But IE was the only one located in Madrid. I guess this might give you a bit advantage for co-op in Madrid. You don't have a major competition from another school.

They offer a 6 wks Spanish class before the semester starts for free. If you want to master Spanish, Madrid will be a better choice over Barcelona, given the consideration that Barca locals speak their own dialect. But ESADE do give you more options in terms of program length, it is more flexible.

In terms of weather, I would say Barcelona might be the best. Madrid snows in the winter, according my Spanish teacher who lives there for over 7 years, Madrid is a lot like Beijing -- so i guess would somehow like Chicago.

People:
I'd say I LOVE ESADE people! Very friendly & warm. This is the only school that makes me feel I should apply because their people are just soooooooooo nice! Even though I did make a decision not to submit application in the end because of other factors.

I believe MBA is not just about study, thus I pass any schools in UK simply because I know I can't eat fish and chips for a year...I am sure I can't afford a lot of good Chinese food in UK. I know how big food means to me..so as much as I know how good many UK B schools are, and the fact UK has better economy than Spain. I guess this is a funny reason but anyway I choose not to apply basically because this. I guess for me this is not only education but also one year different living experience.

.

once again, have you looked into the Columbia J-term?! it is about 30% of the total full time Program. BUT, 70% of this intake are international students and older applicants since there is no internship.. I believe it is very strong alternative to INSEAD Sept intake. another option, is Tepper school of business, they offer the option to finish your study in 16 month to graduate in Dec following year instead of may second year and same as Columbia J-term there is no internship.
all of all, I wish u best. your words here tell you are nice person...god luck..
