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?

INSEAD is my first choice for the September 2018 intake and the only school I'm applying to in R1. Very nervous about my average academic record but scored a 730 on my GMAT (V50 Q39 AWA 5 IR 6). 6 years work experience, loads of extra curicular etc.

Will start preparing essays and other aspects of my applications ASAP. All the best to ones applying.


Hello, I don't know how bad your average academic record is but I doubt it's worse than mine :). I applied in R2 to the class of 18D, and got in. I did not mention or explain my poor undergraduate CGPA at all. I focused on highlighting my other strengths, made sure my essays and references were rock-solid, and used the Optional Upload to provide perspective on my performance as a Manager of Others.

As I got in, and then got a pretty good scholarship, I don't think it will hold you back. Focus on the other parts of the application, and best wishes!


Thanks for the motivation, revelation21.

I have a CGPA of 6 on 10 from a very average Indian engineering institute. I have pretty much followed the same mantra of highlighting my strengths. Currently working on my Letter of recommendations. Looks like it is going to go to the last day for me.

Is there a word limit to the LoRs? If not, what is the advisable word count?

I seem to have a problem accessing the Decision Tracker for the Sept. 2018 intake of INSEAD.
Initial data come out but they suddenly disappear when I scroll further down.
Is it just me having this problem?

I hope some mods could help fix this problem.
Thanks a lot!

All the best for the video interview! WHen is the last date to take the video interview?

Just a small question, during my GMAT exam I had selected INSEAD as one of my 5 B-schools and they have already received my electronic scorecard. Do I have to mention that anywhere? I can't see a field for that.

Thanks!

You have 48H after the deadline to complete the video interviews.
So that's 9/22.

About the GMAT report, just input your GMAT scores in the Tests page and they'll just confirm your scores from the official GMAT report.

Harshet,
Adding onto this. After you finish your entire application process including LORs+ video interviews, you will have an admission officer assigned to you who will confirm within the next few days if any info on your application is missing. If they don't get have your official GMAT score card they will let you know during this time.
So for the time being sit back and relax:)

There is no word limit specified for the LORs. Recommendations so can be written in as many words as required to convey the intended message. However try to keep the recommendations concise and not use more words than necessary. I'm sure the adcoms will appreciate the consideration, given that they will be reviewing a lot of applications. :-)

I have completed the video essays.
It was less stressful than I expected. However, there were 2 questions I exceeded the time limit. I tend to speak a lot. Haha!

Nonverbatim:
1. How do your colleagues describe your leadership style?
2. How will INSEAD help you achieve your goals?
3. How will you handle a multicultural work environment?
4. How will you communicate with a person who speaks a different language/has a strong accent?

1. Why should INSEAD give you a seat?
2. Tell me about a time you've failed. What did you learn from it?
3. How do you work with multicultural teams? (something like that)
4. How would people describe your leadership style?

Just completed my video interviews. Was extremely nervous at the start but once it started, I don't even remember how it got over.

Did stammer a little bit a couple of times. Really hope it doesn't cost me.

The waiting game begins. All the best everyone :)
