Guess online stats are truly delayed

Even as of today (Sunday), my online app status still says "application under evaluation." Now it's the wait for interviews.

Update delays

Interesting, INSEAD's online status still shows that my application is "under evaluation", it does appear that there is almost a days delay between the e-mailed status (that I've been called for Interview) and status change online.

For those who have not received calls yet, don't lose hope - there is one more day.

Called for Interview at INSEAD

As a good start to a holiday, I received a mail this morning from INSEAD saying I was "pre-selected" for interview. This is great because getting the interview itself is a hurdle, and now my chances are better. Unlike many other schools, at INSEAD and IMD, an interview is mandatory gate before offer. If no interview is offered, that means you got dinged.

Now I need to wait while they find the right alumni in the US (preferable east coast) for me to interview with.

Relief. One more step to go.

One more week between a Ding or an interview at INSEAD

Deadline's on 24th Nov. Just few more days, and then it's time to know if I got dinged or not.

Depending on how it goes, I might start preparing myself for applying to IMD. The reason I waited for IMD is that while I think it's a top class school and I'd love to be in it - the problem is the time, it's 2008 Jan. Sort of late. Oh well, like I have very many choices.
