I don't think the app is up yet. I think it opens on August 1st.

No need to apologize, those were just words of caution. I think the Wharton app for 2013 doesn't open until August 1st, but I may be wrong. I am still waiting on a decision for the class of 2012 so mine is different (I am on the summer waitlist).

ok sounds good, that makes sense. I hope you make it in. I am trying to work on these essays and improve my GMAT.

I am following your advice on using the MGMAT Sentence Correction guide so I can fix my verbal which I did terrible on during my first GMAT. I know I need @700 for a better chance.

Good luck to all! With the economy out of recession, and a fabulous performance of Wharton MBA's job search-wise even in the worst economic downturn, I think it will be tougher than ever to get in this year.

Do not get me wrong, I am not trying to discourage or scare you, though. Just be prepared to fight like there is no tomorrow!

When you have questions about Wharton, I would be glad to answer any of them.


Just read your bio on your blog. You have an amazing background and seem to be naturally talented with languages. I'm hoping to apply to Lauder even though I don't have half as impressive a background as a lot of your peers and yourself (no harm in trying!) - hope to reach out to you in the future with questions I have about the program!

Optional 1.Student and alumni engagement has at times led to the creation of innovative classes. For example, through extraordinary efforts, a small group of current students partnered with faculty to create a timely course entitled, “Disaster Response: Haiti and Beyond,” empowering students to leverage the talented Wharton community to improve the lives of the Haiti earthquake victims. Similarly, Wharton students and alumni helped to create “Innovation and the Indian Healthcare Industry” which took students to India where they studied the full range of healthcare issues in India. If you were able to create a Wharton course on any topic, what would it be? (700 words)


How do you guys feel about using "us" and "we" in that essay? I don't know if I should write this essay as if I was definitely going to be a future student at Wharton or not. Is that good for the personal touch or does that overstep a certain boundary one does not want to cross?

Anyone any thoughts on that?

I was thinking about this same issue daybefore while drafting the essay. I've usually just referred to Wharton students without adding a personal reference. I think its better not to come off as presumptuous. In only one instance have I used "we" and even there it is ambiguous whether I am referring to Wharton MBA students or MBA students in general. I need to revisit that piece and see if it needs modifying. Personally, I would refrain from using "we" or "us" to the extent possible. However, I think its ok to use it if you are referring to MBA students in general to describe a common characteristic that is school-independent.

I actually have another dilemma regarding this same essay. I've referenced a particular book in the essay and used quotes from the book. Is that ok? Have any successful applicants used references and quotes in their essays?
