Re: Columbia and Insead admits: Persistence and hardwork [#permalink]
Hi Souvik,

Not sure what happened with Wharton. But I know that I had a hard time writing the main Stanford essay. I do not think I spent a lot of time thinking about "What matters most to me and why?" and most of my responses were probably not deep enough to inspire Stanford. I do not still know "What matters most to me?" and I was mostly focused on writing stories that will impress Stanford. I even tried to show my entrepreneurial bent of mind but I did not have a strong proof for that story.

I also think that my focus on these two schools really helped me. I was laser focused on finding out more about INSEAD and that enthusiasm was truly reflected in my essays. I probably did that as I believed I had a good shot.

Rajat- I have 5 years of experience in risk management with engineering and a 3.6 GPA.


warm regards

Thanks for responding. I have a follow up for your INSEAD question. Last year the app did not have any why INSEAD type questions. Could you share more on how you leveraged your INSEAD research and the resulting enthusiasm? It will be really helpful to know.

AwesomenessMBA, Have added the name of the consultant in the topic too. And I will recommend INSEAD over IMD as the class size is bigger.

Will share a detailed experience for INSEAD very soon. Regards,
