They won't give feedback on apps (actually haven't heard of any school that will but could be wrong...)

Anyone who has had an interview, can you please post the questions?

Also, I believe that the interviewers do not get to review our application and only have our resume to refer to - is this true?

Anyone going to the Social Impact visit day this Thursday?

I heard from a friend who interviewed yesterday that the questions were all behavioral based, and there was nothing related to "Why Wharton, what you plan to do with it etc." Anyone else have have that experience?

A while back (after the first wave of invites) people were saying that you can go out to multiple alums at the same time and others were saying you should wait a week...I think people would understand if you went out to a few alums and then if anyone emailed after you'd already scheduled an interview you would just tell them that and they'd understand...

1) either write to him asking him for it
2) write to adcom explaining the case.

I'd give it another day and then write to him again. Still four weeks to get it done so I wouldn't get too anxious at this point (that being said, maybe check to see how far away other alums are in other towns if you could travel a bit...just in case)

If it helps having a point for comparison, Booth recommends that if you don't hear from your interviewer within 2 business days, you should email the admissions office.

Personally I wouldn't give it any thought it until maybe 72hrs after you dispatch the email.

I wonder if it's OK to bring a resume that's slightly different from the resume submitted with your app? For example, changing a couple bullet points under your job description so it's easier to talk about during the interview. What do people think?

I heard from a friend who interviewed yesterday that the questions were all behavioral based, and there was nothing related to "Why Wharton, what you plan to do with it etc." Anyone else have have that experience?


According to the Wharton Admissions blog: "Interviews will include behavioral questions. Questions may center on specific examples or detailed descriptions of events, projects or experience that demonstrate how situations you’ve faced in the past have been handled and what you learned from them. Behavioral interviewing assumes that past performance predicts future behavior."

They changed the wording from "may" last year to "will" this year.

Also, below is an excerpt from the interview with Sandy (on Poet and Quant): "The real news this year is that Stanford and Wharton are trending toward behavioral questions versus the more typical ones like ‘why Wharton, why now, why do you want an MBA.’ Of course, it would still help to prepare for those questions as well. But if you are being interviewed by Stanford or Wharton, you should Google behavioral interviews and you’ll get some bad advice about how to answer those questions but at least it will help you get some standard questions. They’re asking people things like, ‘Tell me about a time you worked on a great team, or a bad team, or worked with a great leader. Tell me when you disappointed yourself and what would you do differently if you had to do it again. Tell me about a time you had a conflict with a person and how you resolved it. Tell me about a time you dealt with an ethical issue.’ For some reason, Stanford and Wharton seem to be tilting toward those questions this year."

Going off jkl84's post above, some more info from Meghan Bass:

"The interview will be based more on behavioral skills and your answers to those types of questions, more so than your specific background. So really think objectively and largely about how you approach certain situations; how you communicate as an individual, your experience working with teams, leading, and what you really want to get out of the MBA. And come prepared with really intelligent questions; meaning not, "What are my chances of getting in?" But more so, "What can Wharton offer? What can I offer to Wharton?""

hey guys - for those that have interviews with adcom, do you know if we are required to send our resume in advance? I know adcom already have our resumes technically, but some schools request students to send their resumes by e-mail as well.

also, another small question - within the application, when i click on the details for my interview there is a RSVP date (which i am guessing is the same for everyone)... do i need to confirm anywhere that i will be going for the interview i signed up for?

wanted to make sure i'm not missing anything... thanks in advance for your help..

Regarding the alumni interviews, mine took a few days to respond. I emailed the Wharton people and they had this to say:

Quote:
Dear Candidate,
Thank you for your email. Recognizing that the invitations went out on Friday, I would ask for your understanding. Not all people check emails over the weekend. If you do not receive a response by tomorrow, please email mbainterview (at) wharton.upenn.edu. The subject line should have the name of your city/state country where the interview is needed. The body of the email should explain the situation along with the name of the unresponsive interviewer. I will follow up with that person directly.


Basically, give them until tomorrow to respond.

Just bring your resume. Although when I talked to my friend who interviewed off campus with a "Wharton Consultant" (UPenn undergrad, not MBA, and not adcom), the interviewer didn't really know what to do with the resume and just went off the behavioral interview script. Not sure if that's consistent with others.
