How long were the interviews?:
Were you given options for the date of the interview?:
Yes - One interviewer instructed me to come to their office for a particular date and time, no alternate options were given so I had to make sure to change my schedule to accommodate them. The second interviewer was more flexible and gave me a couple options

No - Both interviewers called me their respective offices

What was the most difficult question?:
What are you passionate about - what gets you up in the morning?
What was the most interesting question?:
When the interviewer learned that I had worked in a particular region, he asked me my opinion on a problem his company was facing in that area?
Did you receive any feedback at the end?:
Yes - The first interviewer was a closed book. They did not say anything about there opinion, but briefly mentioned something about deferred acceptance. I am not sure if that is good or bad, as INSEAD does not do deferred acceptance.
The second interviewer said I was exactly what insead was looking for and I would be able to bring a unique perspective to the program.
Any other questions you remember?:
-Why an MBA? Why now? Why Insead?
What is the biggest challenge you have faced?
-What are the differences between the smaller, entrepreneurial companies I have worked for and the large MNC that I work for currently?
-What were the challenges I faced when moving to my current location?
-Why I decided on my current company?
-Take me through your resume?
-Harvard has a great reputation - why not HBS?
-Where do you see yourself in 5 years? 10 years?
Did you feel prepared?:
How did you prepare?:
-Read many, many blogs online.
-Discussed possible questions with friends/colleagues etc to ensure I got all the 'bad answers' out of my system
-Talked with people who had been involved in the interview process in the past. (I was told that the interviewers are not given a list of questions to ask, but rather a form to fill out after the interview with questions such as, would you want this person on a team with you? Would you want to spend X hours at an airport with this person?
What was your opinion of the Faculty?:
What was your opinion of the Alumni?:
Great. Really enthusiastic and every person I spoke to said that it was the best year of their life. I dont' know any other schools alum that say that
What was your opinion of the Students?:
What was your opinion of the Office Personnel?:
So helpful and prompt. Even for people that are potential applicants. I wanted to talk to alum in my area about their experiences at insead. Within a matter of days I was speaking with someone. Other schools were not even remotely as close to helpful
What was most impressive?:
What was least impressive?:
Did anything change your opinion of the school?:
Was there something you wish you had known ahead of time?:
Suggestions for travel to the school?:
What other advice can you offer future intervewees?:
Go in confident of yourself (but not cocky), it really shows and leaves the interviewer with a good impression. Don't hold back on your enthusiasm for INSEAD. Prepare your strengths (other than the ones in the essays) that way you can highlight them in the answers for other questions.
