Good luck everyone! I finally pinned down my interviewer and have my interview next Monday. From what I've read about last year's app process the majority of invites were sent between 13-15 November...G'luck!

Yeah .. I've also read that the majority of Wharton interview invites are released in the last few days. Keep your fingers crossed and stay positive.

My friend applied in R2 last year, he received his interview invite one day before the deadline and he was accepted to the school. Honestly I think the real reason behind the differing timings is that two readers evaluate each app...if one is slow then the process is held up. Plus take today off, it's Veteran's Day so probably no mails.

It is a regular working day for all non-government employees. So I would assume that the adcomm is working today.

Applying R2, Health Care Management major (have to choose it when I apply).

I also apply for the HC major. Did you know that you have to pass additional interview for this, with a HC Dept MBA advisor?

Really? Fun! :roll: Where'd you hear/read that?

Interviews do not really scare me to be honest. If I am invited to interview, I'll just prepare hard and knock 'em dead.

EDIT: Nevermind. I read it on the s2s forums. I had a short phone conversation with June Kinney back in August when I was looking at Wharton's HCM major. She seemed very nice.

Man, Wharton is unnervingly quiet! No one reported receiving an interview invite on the BW forums yesterday...
