May/June is approaching fast so let's hope that we hear back in the coming weeks!


What's a rationale behind the May-June timeline? I mean do they start taking decisions on WLed candidates after the last round?


Hi Narenn,

Good question! Based on my personal observation, there is generally some movement after everything is done and dusted (e.g. after all 4 rounds have ended). There was some waitlist movement in mid-end May for the Sept 2018 batch so I am hoping that it will be the same for us. I am particularly hoping for some movement on the waitlist during R4 decisions week (starting on 6th May). Fingers crossed!

Thanks! Interesting info. Some US schools tend to take decisions on WL before the last application round i.e. before R3 decisions. INSEAD, on the other hand, do so only after all rounds are over.

I believe INSEAD actually reviews the waitlist in between rounds as well! There was a r1 waitlisted candidate who got his spot during r2 decision week and I know of two r3 waitlisted candidates who got called up after 3-4 weeks (my guess is that some r3 admits opted not to pay their EUR 10,000 deposit).

Past threads suggest that there will be movement on the waitlist during r4 interview notification week. Unfortunately, this did not happen this year. All in all, there has been very little movement on the waitlist but I am still holding out hope for May-June.

Cheers Narenn!

Been here since r1. Still waiting and waiting and waiting.

How often do you guys send updates to your resp AOs? and is it always emails or do you guys mix it up between calls and mails?

I've been updating around once a month through email. Never thought about calling - do people call to update as well?

Hi all,

In my opinion, the optimal spacing in between update letters should be about 1-2 months. Updates need to be significant and impactful so I try to collate them into one email instead of sending updates every week.

In addition, I am not a major proponent of calling since this might cause disturbance to the AO who is likely swarmed with work (20D cycle is ongoing now). Moreover, emailing will greatly facilitate the process as it will be easier for the AO to track our correspondence, update the Admissions Committee etc.

Hope this helps!

Hi all,

I have been offered a spot at Fonty! Extremely happy that all the hard work has finally paid off...

I am sure that there will be further movement on the waitlist so send in your update letters if you have not done so and stay positive everyone! All the best!

So it seems INSEAD does review waitlisters before the end of r4? From the previous threads, I was expecting movements sometime around next week
