I wish I understood how adcoms make decisions. I got a yes from LBS and a ding from Wharton. I think my Wharton app was actually much better. You're the other way around - really confused how they work!


Actually my Wharton app was much better as well, I poured my heart and soul in to the Wharton/Lauder app and I would have been quite dejected if I got dinged because I believe I gave it everything I had.. I spent 4 months on the Wharton app and I really wanted to get at least one more school in during R1 so I rushed my LBS app and probably spent just 2 weeks or so on it so I guess that reflected in the quality and hence the ding.. but yeah I agree with you.. its very hard to predict how they function.. I guess at the end of the day someone is making a subjective decision and whenever there is a human element to decision making, rationality goes out of the window simply because any two people may have different perspectives and outlooks to their judgement making process.

I think the universe has a way of staying in balance - got an invite from LBS yesterday and Dinged from Wharton today. Staind, you got a ding from LBS and an invite from Wharton today. Congrats!

Applied RD2 last year and got waitlisted. Rewrote my essays (and improved them dramatically according to 3 Wharton and Sloan MBAs), but I just got a ding. I'm a bit confused.


Same exact story.

+Ding!



Same exact story - I dramatically improved my essay and my candidacy, but a ding. I was crushed two hours ago, now I am a bit calmer now. It'll work out for all of us at the end. Cheers, mates.

Congrats staind.. I got a ding from LBS yesterday out of the blue but INSEAD invite has made up for it today. All the best for Lauder...

Ding :|

What can I say.. At least for me, the Round 1 ordeal is over. I have applied to 5 schools and this ding completes the picture: Harvard - ding, Wharton - ding, Stanford - invite, IESE - invite, Booth - invite.

I'm very disappointed; I'll just go to bed now.

I received an invite :), with 690 gmat. Also got invites in Chicago and LBS. Ding in HBS.

For international candidates, anyone has a clue about interviewing with Alumni or with AdCom? (they are coming to my city)


Scheduling an interview with AdCom is better. They are more experienced and less likely to hold you to an unrealistic high standard that some Alumni do (which I hear happens sometimes).

Forums on days like today remind me of "Lets do the fork in the garbage disposal."

If you don't know what I'm talking about, YouTube it now. Trust me. Almost makes it easier to take.

Xerox: you have been so kind to us this entire R1 process...maybe one last hint or piece of information for us...perhaps a small window for us to really stress out during???

apologies for being late with my reply; one universal (and very important) hint that everyone knows about, but most people forget before and during admission interviews is that the conversation is mostly about your fit.

For those who got an invite today, think thoroughly about why you could be a good fit for Wharton, and why would the best b-school in the world be a good fit for you. It takes two to tango.

Your prayer is like wishing for something worse to happen; almost like saying "God, thank you for the wonderful luck I've felt today! Now please, if you be so kind, help me get a little less lucky next time!"

i hope this is a case of sarcasm/humor not coming through a message board correctly because if this was serious, it's comments like these that really make students at wharton look like asses.

anyway, congrats to all with invites, those who didn't receive invites, as annoying as it is to hear right now, please don't feel too dejected. the b-school application process can be quite random at times, so don't let this setback shape your outlook on your chances at the other great schools many of you applied to.

lol xerox has always been there to help out applicants and answer questions and has even helped me through the lauder application process even though we don't know each other outside of this forum so I can assure you your fellow Whartonite is anything but an ass! maybe just overly passionate about W :)

I second staind. Xerox is a rock star in contributions and especially helpful to this forum's Wharton fans. Knowing the friendly and helpful feud going on between Booth and Wharton fans on the forum ( chicago-vs-wharton-74034-20.html ) I think his joke was fitting.

I got an invite to interview at Wharton. I have 750 gmat and 2.6 GPA. I think the design your own course essay I wrote may have put me over the top at this school.
