I replied in the thread but don't know if it went through or not.

AO = CT.

640, but had an awful split. I had a hard time breaking 50% in quant. but verbal has always been around 80%-85%.

Been studying about a year and a half with GMAT Prep. & on the forums here with The Guru himself.

Have been working on this application for 5 years, so won't be able to sleep if I don't give it another go. I'm in no rush.

Appreciate the kind words.

Also, since I know there has been discussion on this board regarding this they make it very clear in the FAQ section for re-application candidates (and maybe all) that they are looking for 70%-75% range in both areas of the GMAT. I had taken 2 math-based courses at a top US-based program and aced them - it wasn't enough.

Bro I have more than 80% in both quants and verbal in GMAT but still a big fat ding!!

The biggest pinching point is that I do not know why I got rejected without an intereview!! It would always be a mystery for me...

Just a question - did you get admissions consultant help with your application? I really felt like the guy I used put me over the top in selling my story. If I'm not mistaken someone on this very thread said that almost all of the people in his admit class had help as well. May be food for thought!

It really doesn't seem fair that they did not give you any reason. Perhaps you can ask your AO for more details to get some closure?

My AO has written that it is against the Insead Policy to disclose what made adcom take this decision.

So no point of asking. They won't tell i think!
