Hey Gmanster

Total:525

Canada: 31 (lots of double nationalities)
India: 61
Israel: 16
Jordan: 2
Lebanon: 32
Syria: 3

Just a thought, something I was thinking for myself had I not recieved an offer. Dec7th is the deadline for Sep 2012 intake 2nd round. If you are thinking of re-applying and miss it, then you have an option of either applying for 3rd round sep 2012 intake or I think 1st round Jan 2013 intake. From my personal experience, 3rd round is pretty difficult as there are usually very few places left (in relative terms, versus other rounds). So 1st round Jan2013 would probably be the most sensible, given you want to reapply. But if someone wants to re-apply and not wait another year, I think the coming Dec 7th is the way to go. Just a thought though..I hope re-application is not needed and you hear good news soon.

Gmaster,
Thanks for representing me in your query. You must be encouraged by the decrease in the number of lebanese...

Hahah, no prob Rino I did miss the greeks tho, sorry Fin!

Encouraged.. i'm not quite sure. INSEAD normally takes about 22 or so Lebanese, but this year... im just surprised at the sheer amount. But we will see how it goes. Any thoughts of how many the final total count will be for this year? do you think they will get to 550?

BF, i agree with you about the reapplication. Round 3 this year got totally ****. Poor them!

Curious to know if anyone has looked into accommodation if they were to get accepted? I was hoping for something in Fontainebleau so that i can be close to school and also be able to party a bit and not have to drive... but from the looks of it, we might have to take places out of town and drive in.

I'm not sure we are the best candidates to offer tips...after all, we got waitlisted

Don't bother going through this thread- its relevant only for waitlisted candidates.
The best piece of advice I can offer you is don't end up applying on r3.

Hahah, i was thinking the same but wasn't sure i should say it! Perhaps he is looking for tips on NOT getting waitlisted.. I guess my tip would be to apply to more than one school which isn't that hard on the sept intake. That way you have choices all coming in at once, instead of having to wait for just one school.

Do you think end of this week? I was thinking around the 13th... that's when the pressure lets up from processing and notifying all the R2 candidates for interviews. Then they will turn their attention to us.

I've just talked to my coordinator- it seems that she can't estimate when should there be some movement. She stressed that there is no pattern to the waitlist, and that the comity can reach final decisions at any time. However, this may just be the dictated official response she is obliged to provide.

I am wondering whether I should get off the waitlist and reapply at round 2 (today), or stay on the waitlist and hope for the best. In the worst case, I can always pay another visit to the round 3 graveyard .

That's hilarious! I broke down and emailed me coordinator last night only to find out that she has been replaced it seems. Was advised nothing has changed in my status and assured they would contact me should a position become available for me. Nothing to feel encouraged about at this point.

As i won't be reapplying, i don't share your dilemma Rino. Thinking about it there are a few options you can consider:

1) Do you have to get into an MBA program this year? or are you able to wait a little longer to get in. This might mean you wait this out and then reapply in R1 next year? No point wasting a good chance to get in now for unknown chances in Sept.

2) Do the Jan/Sept intakes differ for you? Looking back maybe i should have applied for the Sept intake instead of Jan. I would like a placement within the program, but its not a deal breaker.

3) Has your profile changed within the past 6 months or are you hoping to get luckier with the numbers on your second try? For example, I have actually taken the past year off and have been volunteering with the Canadian Cancer Society (I've always wanted to do my volunteering before an MBA). If i was to reapply for Sept, my profile would be exactly the same, so, I doubt the response will be significantly better.

P.S. R3 really sucks, I personally would wait a couple months and go for R1 of the next intake. Just think about it, you are competing for 1 of 250 spaces instead of 1 of 80?

Good luck either way!
