Just got an email saying my app went complete, a month after submitting it. The big points:

-Interview invites will start going out early Dec until the decision deadline, February 2. Everyone on the Wharton board is going crazy over 3 weeks, I can't wait to see what 2 months does to people.

-In some cases they will let people know if they're going to be dinged prior to Feb 2.

-If admitted, a 3K deposit is due March 13(though 1.5 of it is refundable). That seems rather early to me.


So who knows, I(and others here) may end up doing an on-campus interview while I'm visiting my parents during the holidays. Here's selfishly hoping that the fight of a trek through a foot or two of snow will filter the people who really want it from the fair-weather'ers that only saw Boston in the summer!

I got the same but the status has not changed on the application. I don't think it matters but just wanted to point out.

I received an email from Sloan today about financing my MBA. The email included info about applying for various fellowships. Did everyone get this email or should I see this as a good sign?

I applied for R1. Thanks!

Sorry I shouldve been more clear in my email. I wasn't assuming it was a ding. I was just adding that I hadn't gotten the email.

Sorry, I keep forgetting sarcasm doesn't translate well in print. I was just joking.
