I was browsing the forums and did not run into the INSEAD thread for the current program! Come on - who all are out there for this year? I am still a little unsure about INSEAD as the school has been historically clear about its point of view on reapplicants - but this year bb10 noticed a change in their language for reapplicants and I think they may make their stance softer.

So: Who all are with me this year?

From what I know, once the interview reports are submitted to the school, 2 new readers read the application in its entirety and give a recommendation. I guess this evaluation is what the adcom uses for the final decision. I'd place my bets on them reviewing the evaluations per region, thus the results coming out per region not by the order of interview.

Although there are special cases wherein interviews are conducted very late (like few days before decision date). In that case the result for that specific applicant might come later than the rest of the applicants in the same region.

I agree. The decisions are rolled out geographically (if previous trends are anything to go by). I was just wondering if the final review (by the fresh referee) is done all together after the interview deadline or as and when the interviewers submit their feedback - Lol not that it matters anyway - One way or the other, next week, between Tuesday - Friday, we shall find out the outcomes. Que Sera Sera!

Congrats to all on completing your interviews (guessing 14th Nov was the interview deadline for all - Last year, 18th Nov was most likely the cut off day for the interviews). So, last year's admission decision deadline was on 25th Nov (Friday) and they started calling 22nd onwards (Tuesday). With this year's decision deadline being on the 24th of Nov (also a Friday), I am almost willing to place a wager that they will start sending out the decisions 21st onwards (i.e. NEXT TUESDAY :shocked :dazed :o

Guess we are all gearing up for the meltdown to begin. Meanwhile, does anyone know if "The Decision Gods" start assessing the files as and when the interview reports are submitted by the interviewers or do "They" meet once and for all to assess all our files together after the interview deadlines?

Damn I had 20th in mind so I was waiting for a call/mail this week... One more I guess...

I would guess they are reviewed in the order of receipt of the reports; it's the most time-efficient way.
In any case, results will roll out by the middle of next week so for now all we can do is wait.
Good luck everyone :D

Hi

I am a round 2 applicant.

About the scholarship essay, where is the link for this in the form? Is this for R1 applicants? I couldn't locate this anywhere in the form. Please help!


Hi,

Unless I'm mistaking, you get a link to the schorlarship platform once you have been invited for interviews. In any case, R1's deadline for scholarships is on the 6th but it will be another deadline for R2.

Cheers,

Nche

Hi

Where in the form do we need to submit our professional photo? Is it only at the landing (main) page?

Would appreciate a response.

Thanks!

Just submitted my R2 application!
GMAT:730
Work ex:6 years of which 4 are international
Sector: Reinsurance

Those video interviews were definitely not the easiest and I should have practiced a lot more. Don't really know what they're trying to test!

stig1587 I had the same thought when I was applying for R1. Now 2 interviews ahead I think the video interviews are there so that the ad com can get a glimpse of your personality while reading your essays.

Im planning on visiting INSEAD in france. Does anyone know if we need to submit our passport when applying for the visa? Or do we get to keep it with us because Im also planning on applying for a UK Visa. Also do we need to submit the passport for the UK Visa?

This is as an Indian passport holder.

Hi,

For french/schengen visa, you’ll have to submit your passport which is returned within a week based on where you apply from. When I applied for a business visa from Bangalore, I got it back next day. However, when I applied from London for visitor visa, I got my passport back after three days.

Unfortunately, I can’t help for UK as I applied for long term visa than visitor but even in that case, they kept my passport. I went for express service and got it back in a week’s time. Otherwise, it takes up to 3 weeks I belive.

Hope that helps.

Cheers,
Pri

Indeed! Preparing for the meltdown to begin! Good Luck to all! If previous trends are anything to go by then I guess they will start rolling out the decision Tuesday (tomorrow) onwards. But then there can always be a deviation.

I've been reading insead student blogs to ease the anxiety.
Out of curiosity, who plans to start in fonty then transfer to Singy in P3?
I'm inclined to follow this route (then back to fonty for P4/P5) but from what I heard P3 singy exchange has an incredibly high demand. One might use up most of his elective bidding points just for this exchange. :/

That's kinda what I have in mind as well but I'm trying not to plan or look into that too much until I'm sure I get in. I mean you might be offered to start in SG so who knows.
