I still believe that all the questions have an assumed "part (b)" which asks "and how does this relate to your desire to attend INSEAD's MBA program now?" it's not name dropping or bootlicking, it's about displaying a degree of self-reflection.

you don't have to have answers now, but you do have to have hypotheses.

can anyone tell me if there is a particular format in which the transcript has to be submitted to Insead. My Insitution (Institute of Chartered Accountants of India) has mentioned as the 'Form for transcripts' as one of the requirements for issuing the transcripts

From what I can remember, I just uploaded a PDF of mine into the online app; they will ask for originals later (if you get to that level)

How about the others who've applied for Jan 2015? Anyone heard back on confirmations/interviews (might be too soon)? It's so quiet here!

Well - The deadline was on the 21st March (plus the week for the recommendations). I guess the latest we find out is the 25th April. So we have about 3 weeks to go.

Guys from Jan2014 intake got first invitations on the 25th and their deadline was the 1st of April. So I hope we will hear something on the 15th of April already

I just submitted my application for round 1. Think about it this way. If they really wanted to know why mba/why insead/career goals, they would've asked that. they did ask that in previous years, but have kept it out this year - i think theres a reason for that. they want to know you as a person, and know who you really are and what drives you. i'm sure INSEAD knows you absolutely love the school and would do anything to attend. they made the change so that they can hear more real and authentic stories, as opposed to random name dropping and "i love INSEAD because...."

just my 2 cents. i haven't been invited to interview or anything yet, but I honestly think if they didn't ask those questions, they don't want to know. The only one area I would focus on is Career Goals - try to incorporate that somewhere in your essays. You can even get your recommender to talk about these areas, if you absolutely cannot fit them anywhere in your essays.

fingers crossed :D

I agree that INSEAD most likely wants to see more personal and interesting essays and moved away from the "why MBA/why INSEAD" question because most candidates were essentially saying the same thing (extolling the virtues of INSEAD's diverse student base, etc.) I'm pretty sure the topic will still come up in the interviews though.

Hey,

I am a 15'J admit at INSEAD. I can vouch for what aal286 said. Both my interviews lasted for more than an hour each and the interviewers were primarily focused on getting to know my career goals, need for an MBA and rational behind going to INSEAD.

So, my two cents would be to answer the questions at hand.

Send me a PM if you need help with anything specific.

Hi all!

Please help to decide. I've just successfully finished my GMAT mission and haven't even begun to prepare my Insead J2015 application. Assuming that I should waste some time preparing for TOEFL, what do you think about 3 months period until 3rd round deadline? Is it comfort time period for preparing the application? Will I have my chances severely reduced because it's the last round?

Hey guys ... does Insead usually send out interview requests and admission decisions specifically on the date mentioned on their website or is it a rolling process?

you'll get it before the date, exactly when or in what manner is dependent on your AC.

Just for those who are wondering when do they send out invitations for R1 applicants - I got my interview invitation already on Monday. Did not expect it so fast, but it was a nice surprise. My interviewers were communicated to me today and one of them is from the same McKinsey office as the person who interviewed me for LBS. It makes me a bit uncomfortable knowing that he will probably know I have been interviewed or even accepted to LBS already or I will run into the LBS person in their office at the time of the INSEAD interview. Any piece of advice how to go about it? I feel like I am loosing my chances to get into INSEAD cause I don't want to deny in his face I am not thinking of accepting LBS offer.
P.S. I am more inclined to LBS now, but wanted to get my impression about the school also from the alumni interviewers and then make my final decision.

Congrats on getting the invite!! I think if you've got an acceptance from LBS it would make you more desirable to other Business schools. Keep your stance, show why you want to go to insead and you'll be fine. Can you post your profile pliss

Hello!!
Did any of the applicants get interviewed already? can you share your experience?
Why did the interviews come so early this time...Are all of you applicants for LBS? Strong Profiles? Uncommon pool?? Kinda bizarre but good for us anyway!!!! and congrats for all who got to this stage.
I got my interview notification on the 9th of April! they still haven't identified who my interviewers will be..i shall post out my experience here as soon as it happens.
Best of Luck for all of you out there!!!
