Visiting this Thursday. Looks like there are a ton of classes to sit in on, any recommendations? I've narrowed it down, but my remaining choices include:

Corp Finance
Fin Derivatives
Intl Fin Markets
Negotiations
Entrepreneurship
Decision Models & Uncertainty

Any from marketing or strategy; avoid finance. For finance, one needs a lot of background and class can be boring. Strategy and finance are more interactive and fun. This is a tip I got from a current student at Wharton.

Here's my $.02 in sequence of preference: 1. Negotiations - aim for Prof. Diamond's class. Creme de la creme. 2. Corp Finance - cannot go wrong with Prof. Allen's class. Awesome prof - he is among the three authors who wrote the book all bankers seem to have on their desks. Dolce Vita. 3. Entrepreneurship and Strategy share the same spot. 4. Decision Models & Uncertainty - only go if you are a fan of Solver plug-in in Excel, or if you get excited about linear programming and Monte Carlo simulations. Otherwise, sit on Strategy or Entrepreneurship. I cannot give any advice about the Intl. Fin Markets course, but there is a cool course called International Banking w/Prof. Herring - that I would definitely sit on. The Professor is superb, and he makes the course very relevant to what is going on in the field in real time. _________________ Rukuku.com–Interactive Online Courses http://www.rukuku.com Wharton/Lauder blog http://www.onefootprint.com/lauderwharton/ GMAT Club Premium Membership - big benefits and savings BSchool Forum Moderator Status: Enjoying Class Joined: 06 Dec 2009 Posts: 235 Schools: Booth Followers: 4 Kudos [?]: 79 [0], given: 23 Re: Calling all Wharton 2011 Applicants [#permalink] ### Show Tags 28 Sep 2010, 06:43 xerox wrote: Here's my$.02 in sequence of preference:

Thanks for the advice! For others to know, at least for the Tues/Thurs classes offered at this time, #1 not available with this professor. Is Grant any good? #2 is available at 9, 10:30, 1:30 so that looks good. Is Siggelkow for Strategy any good?

Would you still recommend Corp. Finance for the non-banker types, I'm more of the consulting type which is why the management classes look good.

I have never taken Prof. Grant's classes, but I hear the Prof is good.

Prof. Siggelkow is a brilliant strategist. Students generally rave about his classes. I would go and sit on one of his masterpieces.

Finance 601 is part of the core so unless you waive it, you must take it. FNCE601 covers all the essentials, and that in combination with FNCE602 is enough to start as an Associate at a bank. Needless to say that bankers usually waive both. There is also Advanced Corporate Finance: the course is rigorous and hands-on, all profs are cool; the best part is that Wharton profs love what they do, and those who teach enjoy doing so immensely.

Sorry if this has been answered already, but does anybody know where to input additional classes you have taken post-college graduation? In the education section it looks like they ask for only classes from places that contributed to a degree.

Thanks!

I called up Admissions yesterday and they said to put it under Education, just mark No Degree and list your mark where it states GPA. You can only do it for two classes though, so not sure if you have more.

Hope this helps

I thought I had all my stuff in order and then I get to the page where you are asked to provide "General Information". I better come up with 2 or 3 good, sharp sentences for the above questions.... just thought I share this little snippet so that people do not find out the hard way on October 4th

Thanks for pointing this out ThomasD! Yup, start working on the application as early as possible. It's may take longer than a day to finish. Questions such as above require time. Once done, print out your entire application (bottom left) and then read and re-read over a couple of days before submitting.

Something to do with the interview? It seems to be too late to spring surprises on the application itself!
