I had a couple of reasons for choosing Fonty over Singapore:
1) Being an India, the Singapore, a.k.a. Asia experience is good, but probably not a "must have".. as I have already been exposed to the work/business culture of SE Asia due to India's close business ties there.
2) Personal experience.. I did my MS in Europe (UK to be precise) and had a complete "global" exposure. Hoping to recreate the same in France..
I might still think of P4 in Singapore. Hope that helps.
congrats to all admits...while others are still in the process...
by the way is there a meaning of receiving only one name for interviewer vs. 2 in normal cases ?...
I am quite surprised....if you can find a few minutes to give your opinion, would be great!
I'm planning to visit Fonty (with my wife) towards the middle/end of September too. Primarily to sort out housing and get a feel for the area.
Let us know how useful the trip was..
PS: Anyone else coming with their wife/partner?
sounds like a fun trip!
btw, am looking for housing options (roommates/flatmates etc) and car rentals etc. at Fonty.
any help on the same would be much appreciated.
have you been able to narrow down your serach for th same?
First post here, but it's on the occasion of me receiving my offer for Fonty! Look forward to seeing you all there (vivek, youssef, geeps, pops)
BTW, I'm 26/730 GMAT from Mumbai, India, been working with a large corporate across many different areas. Did my undergrad from the US and postgrad from the UK.. Late introduction, but better now than never!
PS : Youssef - your posts and blog have been very useful.. thanks!
I know that the AdCom meets once every 2 weeks. It all depends on how quickly your interviewers can get their reports back to INSEAD. If your file is complete in time for an AdCom session, you'll be reviewed and notified. If not you'll have to wait unfortunately - not having heard doesn't mean anything.
Keep the faith - remember, none of us was expecting to hear for another 7 days.
Fingers crossed :satisfie:
Hey VivekSu and DonVito,
I think that is precisely the reason, I was done with my interviews by July 31st and if I am not mistaken Jimothy finished his interviews early as well.
Remember that interviewers have to fill the report, send it, adcom members have to look at it, the adcom has to meet to discuss the profiles (I suspect they don't meet everyday) so decisions most probably come out in waves.
All the best,
