there is no additional essay? I would like to explain a couple of things of my undergraduate but I don't want to write about it in the main essays.

Saw the delay, I was confused for a bit, wondering if I had misread the initial Aug 1 date.

In any case, count me in for round 1...

Make sure to plan/pay a visit to Wharton before you press "submit".
Good luck!

Xerox, just how critical is it to visit Wharton? I am applying for NZ and it would be quite challenging to make a trip. There aren't even any admission events scheduled in Aus/NZ for the rest of the year.

Also, how is your experience of the Lauder program? I am planning to apply for the dual degree as well.

It is not critical to visit any school, but nevertheless highly useful. Personally, I am a big supporter of school visits, and in my opinion, those who visit schools, in which they are interested, generally have an edge over those who do not.

Lauder was hands down the best and most memorable and valuable part of my Wharton experience from the social life standpoint. Lauderites get to be a part of 3 very cohesive "cohorts" in addition to the native Wharton-only cohort. The friendships are incredible, and the social life is super rich.

From the academics point of view, Lauder is a unique program in that it puts a practical angle on the international studies through its Global Knowledge Lab program and formal language studies - unmatched elsewhere in the world. Nothing of this sort exists.

Going to admission event in LA today. Thank you, Wharton, for visiting us early.

Thought about Lauder until finding out there is no Korean as one of the languages :(

The statistics of class of 2012 shows that the middle 50% range of GMAT is 650-770. I think Wharton is kind of a GMAT whore.

How is that any different than any other top school? Seems like that is a wider range than I would have anticipated. 25% below 650 seems a bit odd. HBS middle 50% is 700-760.

I am sorry what?!
Is it official statistics?
Do you mean that less than 50% scored either 780-800, which is highly unprobable, or less than 640, which is more probable ?!

middle 50%, so 25% scored 770, 780, and 790, since no one scored 800 according to the range.

Sorry to be blunt but I think you re not looking at the data but you re only looking at one part of the data.

25% of the Wharton students scored 770+ could mean that Wharton is a gmat whore. But if you re looking at the full range, you see that 25% of the students scored below 650... These figures alone should make you tick.

If you compare them with HBS who has a middle 50% of 700-760 .. Who s the real gmat whore now ?

10% of Booth students scored below 660 , 12% of the Kellogg students scored below 640, and Wharton has 25% of its students below 650...Wow.

The conclusion is that Wharton has probably the most spread GMAT range of all top MBAs.
Data shows that Wharton is the opposite of an gmat whore, it s an MBA where 25% of the class scored below 650, and where your gmat score could be compensate by a lot of things. 200 Wharton students scored sub-650.

HBS with 75% of its students at 700+ could be seen as a gmat whore, but taking in account the class size, it also mean that 230+ students got in with sub-700 scores.
