Is INSEAD worth it for an American? Do people even apply from here? Curious about the thoughts of this forum

Didn’t get the interview call from Ross. One school down. 4 more disappointments to go.

Are my admissions chances at Ross hurt if I can’t attend the team exercise on campus?

What’s the right order of operations for giving your firm notice to leave for MBA? How much notice do you plan to give?

Anyone have experience navigating receiving firm sponsorship (tuition repayment) and a consortium fellowship? I feel incredibly lucky to have both opportunities, but feel bad taking both spots

Perhaps the wrong place, but is an MBA worth it with a business undergrad and a MS in accounting? Will it actually teach you anything, and even if not is it worth it? Would another degree be better?

For those of you who worked in Consulting, full time MBA ‘d, and then went back to Consulting, did you come in at the same level? If you went industry, were you taking a pay cut or position downgrade?

How are people ACTUALLY paying for their MBA. I decided later in the game that I wanted to pursue mine but don’t want the $200k debt to work through. How many full rides/ savings/ loan takers in here?

As a Deloitte sponsored mba I’m prevented from interning at another consulting firm. What would be the best industry to intern in to set me up best for MBB in the fall of the 2nd year? IB? Tech?

For those applied R1 (Sept + Oct time), when did you start using the MBA consultant service and for which services? State the consultant name and how much you paid as well if possible.

Interesting: Stanford GSB specifically asked us not to plan class pre-MBA trips as they can act as a function of inequality and create divisions before school even starts. Thoughts?
