Good to know that I am not the only one who had adobe problems... I was worried that the integrity of the text became corrupted during the file transfer to INSEAD.

You guys are right, that PDF-Application form is kind of odd. I edited my essays until 50 mins before final R1 deadline, but submitting the app still took me stressing 20 minutes, including registering a digital signature for me (never done this before, how would I know if I need ASCI and Unicode etc...). And then when I hit "Submit", the files were transferred, but still some error msg occured, and I went into shock! But still got the receipt that my app was uploaded to INSEAD, so should be fine. In case anything misses they will certainly contact applicants.

Wish you all good look, guys!

I dinged IESE and was dinged by most other top b-schools imaginable this season. GL all!

Any reason why you dinged IESE? It's a solid school, good placements, and located in a sexy location... plus IESE doesn't use a stupid pdf form :lol:

As if the pdf wasn't painful enough, the picture online editing system was indeed as bad. The first time I edited my picture I got the good ole "missing picture" icon, the one that dates back to IE 5. I had to recrop, cancel, reupload, crecrop, etc a few times before I got it right, aka: no recrop, just take the full picture while the clock was ticking closer to the deadline :roll:

For those who will apply in Round 2 & 3, I would advise to submit the form a few hours before the deadline (and not at the last minute or even hour) so that your heart rate doesn't go through the roof :wink:

I submitted the complete online app a day before the deadline. Though I had mailed the supporting documentation earlier, I think it reached INSEAD on 31st March (morning)

It takes a day or two for them to send the actual confirmation email. It seems they will check if they have everything they need, and if they are missing something, I'm sure that will be reflected in the response from the coordinator. Good luck. It's the weekend! Too bad it's still 2pm for me... but soon.

Just wondering whether most people who applied on/ few days before the deadline have heard back already? Am getting a bit paranoid that they may have lost my university transcript or somehting?! :P When can we expect to hear back?

Nor have I received any confirmation from Insead. I posted my transcripts a while ago, but submitted the form on the last day (30th March).

Same here. I think it could take up to 5 days rather than just 1 or 2. I'm pretty sure I have read that somewhere.

Applied and got confirmation on April 1. I exceeded word limits on almost all my essays. Did you guys keep to the limits?

I just took a look at the September 2011 intake thread. If you read starting page 4, people that applied 1 day before the deadline or at the deadline received a confirmation with various delays. Some got it the next day while others received it up to 7 days after having applied.

So it's still too early to worry.

IS there a correlation as to whether you get interview calls earlier/ later as well....or get interview calls vs get dinged for that matter, in relation to how soon you hear back? Or is it all really a factor of how soon they pick up your posted docs etc? Anyone knows?

Hi all.... i just received my application completion mail... based on my interactions with last batch of students interview calls have no correlation with receipt of application completion mails.... i suggest you can wait and will surely receive an answer by end of this week
hope this helps!
