Congrats youyouhu421!! This is good to hear, atleast the waitlist has finally started moving! Which Campus are you starting on? Did you provide any additional info to the adcom in the interim?

@mitsloanguy: From what I understand youyouhu421 is a Round 2 applicant for the Jan intake and got the wait list notification in Sept.

Yes you are right I got the waitlist information in Sept, not Sept intake.

I'll start with Fonty. Keep faith up really! The R3 deposit date is in mid Nov. There should be some movements by then!

Hello guys,
i am r3 applicant waitlisted for Jan12 intake this past thursday. Having read a few comments on the related forums the past couple of days and I realised that there were already 480 places offered to applicants (according to MBA connect numbers) before r3 decisions were announced on Thur 13Oct and Fr 14 Oct. adding 1 plus 1 made me think that Round 3 candidates were competing for around 20 firm offers. Wouln't it be fairer if Insead did not state on their web-site that "Competition for each round is relatively equal, so there is generally little advantage to be gained by early application.".

Or am I missing something here?

@mbaanalyst: thanks for the info. When you applied for Jan 2012, were there significant changes to your application from the one for Jan 2011? How did you justify applying again within one year?

No significant changes....i paid a campus visit to Singapore and some increased responsibilities in office..changed some essays in a small manner

When you will be removed from waitlist you can receive either of the following three responses:
1. you are selected...best case..
2. you are rejected and clearly asked not to reapply
3. you are rejected and comparitively (to option 2) you receive a better response...reapplication instructions are given...i was in this category

i applied with all essays + 2 new recos. + 2 interviews and compared with new batch of applications before selection this time

Thanks for this comprehensive info mbanalyst. One questions though re option 2 response. Having been waitlisted I received an e-mail from my coordinator stating that I could be offered a place at any time between now and the start of the program in jan. It also stated that if I am not offered a place by the start of the programme, my application will be cancelled and that I should re-apply if I want to. This made me think there would be no option 2 in such a case. or am I being too optimistic... Did you also receive such an e-mail when waitlisted? cheers

Hello

The three options given below are refering to mails that each one of you will get "after" the initial waitlist mail.

Hope this clarifies.

Here is a link that might shed some light on our current situation:

In addition, assuming wait dynamics are robust over different January intakes, we should expect movement around November 10Th (first payment of R3) and in the beginning of December (USA MBA results). However, I don't know what will be the magnitude of these movements, as I guess R3 didn't add much to the admits' numbers (first two rounds covered more than 95% of capacity).

don't know about you, but I find it comforting to get a glance at the bigger picture by analyzing the waitlist situation, so please give me some material...

thx mbanalyst, that clarifies, also rino's link sheds quite a bit light. With the hindsight R3 this year is quite nightmarish, last year there were 420 places filled after r1 and r2. this year is even worse... . let's hope a lot of candidates decide to go to other schools, so all of us on the waitlist get accepted

Thanks

FinActivist,

There is no effective way to estimate the length of the waitlist. One can painstakingly count the posting members on this thread or the ones who shared their status on the Google spreadsheet. However, assuming that most waitlisters don't post on this thread, and some of those who do don't declare their withdrawal, ding or admission, the outcome probably means nothing.

The only thing that may provide some indication is the comparison between the number of this thread's posting members and the relative figure from the latest intake (2011). The good news is that this year the figure is much smaller.

good luck

Thanks a lot for the analysis Rino.
Actually what seems awkard is that last years the r1+r2 admits were 420 while the total class was 500. So they took 80 people from R3.
This year r1+r2 was 485 and total mba connect is currently at 536. So they took only 51 from R3. However we dont know whether insead will increase the total class size. If it stays to 500 then our chances are pretty slim

Anyway in 1 month i believe we all know

Nothing yet, I think the movement will come in the first week of December. That would be just following the payment deadline.

Yes, that and the H/S/W/LBS would have given their round 1 decisions by then, so lets pray people get into their 1st choice colleges.
