  • John A. Byrne, P&Q Founder & Editor-In-Chief | Odds Assessment: 35%

    There’s a really key component of your story that is missing: it’s international experience. While you say you are fluent in two other languages, it’s not entirely clear to me if you have lived and worked abroad, other than perhaps the U.S. International experience is highly valued at INSEAD. Your 710 GMAT is right on target with the school’s current 709 average and that also is crucial. Because INSEAD is a ten-month program, the schools takes GMATs seriously. It wants to make sure you can handle the quant work without much difficulty. INSEAD looks for candidates who score in the 75th percentile on both the verbal and the quant. That split tends to be more important than the overall score. they look more at this …

    Hello Ms. Humble Auditor! Krista Nannery from mbaMission here. Thanks for posting.
    At this very moment, I am working with a female candidate whose stats are not as strong as yours and she just got an INSEAD interview. So while you’re probably very different people — one thing you have in common is quantitativeness — this is making me feel optimistic about your chances. I have the same question as one of the other posters on what you mean by “Basic fluency in two other languages”…what does “basic fluency” mean? And what is your international experience? For a school like INSEAD, please play this up!
    Another observation…I get nervous when I read things like “Not sure I have any really impressive big life wins.” This is the …

  • Stratus Admissions Counseling | Odds Assessment: 35%

    Hi Ms. Humble Auditor, this is Donna Bauman from Stratus Admissions weighing in on your profile. I have a client right now with some similar stats and she is currently in the interview stage with INSEAD so I think you have the potential to be successful at INSEAD. However, I agree with the other experts here who have asked you to proudly share your accomplishments in your application. Humble is good but you can still share your wins by sharing data and results without editorializing. For example, if you found a way to save X dollars or X amount of time in how you review documents, share the data and leave out the editorial comments that it was a “huge help” etc to your team. …

  • The MBA Exchange | Odds Assessment: 30%

    Hello Humble Auditor, this is Deepak Punwani from MBA Exchange team. Starting on a lighter note – the world needs more humble auditors so you should be welcome at all schools you apply to! Though on a more serious note, one has seen profiles like yours make it to INSEAD especially if you are currently based in the US and if you work at a firm INSEAD would have heard of. You seem to have had roles on the (financial) consulting and client side and now want to make a move to management consulting and eventually to becoming a social entrepreneur. How you tie this up in the goals essay will have a big impact on your admissions chances in my opinion. INSEAD likes to …
