for me it will be a mix of personal and family savings, and a loan from prodigy finance (It still has to be approved). and yes, I will be applying for scholarships as well

not personally, but I know a few guys from my region, who got loans from prodigy

one of the reasons I applied in R1 is to have more time to settle funding

Hi
I have received a confirmation mail from INSEAD that my R2 application is in order and all necessary documents are there. Hanny Stefanie is my coordinator. I submitted on 12th Jun and got the reply on 14th Jun... And Yes, her mail first landed in the SPAM..

Now, the wait starts...

Btw, does anyone have any idea what is the time period between interview call and the actual interviews? The reason I am asking is whether I should start preparing for them rightaway OR wait till the time there is interview confirmation from them.

Hi - you'd have already spent a lot of time on the 3 Whys : Why MBA, Why INSEAD, Why now. The interview discussions will be focused on these questions. I wonder if there is any prep for the rest of the questions. Go through this forum for interview experiences and questions.

Once you hear about the interview invite, it will be your responsibility to schedule interviews at a mutually convenient time. You'll be given at least 3 weeks to finish your interviews. If you think you need to prepare more, you can schedule your interviews towards the end of 2 week or so (to make sure you have ample time to reschedule if an interviewer bails on you or 'pulls out' ).

those are just fields I remember from the application. it did not start actually, because they asked for proof of admit. the website claims they can process application in 2 days

the prodigy loan also sez that they will assess ur financial capability by checking ur recent bank statements...
my question is...shud v liquidate our savings in other forms n convert them into bank deposits???

didn't think of this yet. but in any case we should not, I guess, inflate our actual savings more than we have in reality, because there is a risk prodigy will offer a loan for a lesser amount then we need

good point, did not think of it before. still, I would not "rush into the hell ahead father" (our saying )

first I need to get admit, then I apply for scholarship and loan. Prodigy can cover up to full tuition amount, so your savings should equal at least your anticipated living expenses, I suppose
