Relax friends: if you pressed the 'submit' button before the deadline, the status will change to complete some time within a couple of weeks tops. Good luck!

Just curious, does anybody know what the interview % for wharton? Admit rate is around 18% or so right?


Just found this link in the vault:
103-p439212

So it is around 35% interview rate with a 50% acceptance rate of those interviewed.


I thought I remember hearing at an event that they try to interview 40% but sometimes could go up to 50%. 40% interview + 40 % accepted of those interviewed ~ 16% accep rate

the wait is painful!

Wharton is going to start sending out interview invitations tomorrow. Does anybody have any idea what time and/or how many invites they typically send out the first day?

That is what the e-mail that the adcom sent out after you apply. I am sure you received one. They will send out invites starting today up until Nov 13th at 5PM. No they will only submit dings on Nov 12th.

The e-mail by Wharton said:

Thank you for submitting your application for Round One.

The following will provide you with information concerning the processing of application materials, timeline for the release of interview invitations, and final decision releases.

If your online account reads "Complete - Round One," your application has all the required materials, has been processed by the Operations Team, and has been forwarded to the Committee for review.


If your online account reads "Received," then the Operations Team needs to process your online application submission and any materials submitted by hard copy. After your materials have been processed (assuming they arrived before the Round One deadline), your online account will be changed to "Complete for Round One" and your file will be forwarded to the Committee for review. Due to the high number of candidates who submitted their application during the past few days (more than 60% of candidates applying for Round One submitted their application within 24 hours of the deadline), it will take the Operations Team a few weeks to complete the processing of all materials. Therefore, please allow the Operations Team until Thursday, October 30th before inquiring about the completeness of your application.

Candidates who applied by hard-copy will receive information by e-mail about how to access their online account when the processing of their application is complete. All applications submitted by hard-copy will be processed by Thursday, October 30th.

The Admissions Committee will begin to release interview invitations on Thursday, October 23rd and will continue to release invitations on a daily basis until 5:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time on Thursday, November 13th. Due to the nature and complexity associated with the admissions process there is no particular order in which invitations are released. Also on November 13th, the Committee will release all final admissions decisions to candidates that are not being invited for an interview and therefore no longer being considered for admission.

If you are invited for an interview, you will need to complete your interview by Thursday, December 4th. Interviews will be available on campus with second-year Wharton MBA Students who are full members of the Admissions Committee, off campus with alumni, and off campus in various "Hubs" around the world by Admissions staff members. All interview options are equally considered within the admissions process.

Candidates who are offered an interview will receive their final admissions decision by 5:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time on Monday, December 22nd.

Thank you again for applying to Wharton. We look forward to reading your application.


Sincerely,

Wharton MBA Admissions Committee
Lauder Admissions


I haven't been very active on here but can someone add me to the list of Round 1 applicants. Good Luck to everyone with their applications.

I am in for Round 1 as well. I submitted my application on 10/1 and went complete about 5 days later. Today is the day they start releasing interview invites, but if last year is any indication, most of us won't be hearing anything until November. Best of luck, everybody!

My inbox is still empty and I'm checking every 15 minutes! This is driving me nuts! :lol:

So, I was wondering: when are most invites sent out and is there an order? Do they first send out invitations to the best candidates or is it just a matter of whose app they first read?

Just came back from a Wharton presentation in Paris and apparently apps are up 10% compared to last yr (but seems to be that way every yr, so no increase due to crisis - we'll have to wait for R2 figures to see the real impact). She also said there were more waitlist in R1 than in other rounds... just thought I'd share. By the way, going to the pres only reinforced my feelings about Wharton! Seems like such an amazing school!!! :-D

Anyway, good luck everyone!!
