Well... put me down for R1. I'm going for the Wharton/Lauder program starting '10. I got some int'l experience & goals in mind, but I feel really intimidated seeing so many folks working on app essays already... :oops: :shock:

Does anyone know what the applicant stats are for the Wharton/Lauder program (i.e. GMAT, WE, AGE, etc - specific to the joint program)?

I've been trying to do some research, but cant seem to find the stats...

I'm in for round 1... let it begin! :-D

Given that Wharton is one of the finance-heavy schools, I'm wondering how they look upon students whose post-MBA goals are in the general management space. Does anyone have any insight on that?

anybody started working on essay 2? gosh...its 1000 words...i don't know what to write for 1000 words!


Cozmo, an approach that works well for me is to start with an outline, such as (for Essay 2):
- Describe the setting and the situation
- Describe the conflict of perspectives and the consequences of the conflict
- Talk about your thought process and how you realized adaptation is the best approach
- Write about the outcome
- And finally, show a bit of introspection, talk about what you've learned (but avoid generalities like "I learned its good to take other people's perspectives"... be specific) and DON'T forget to show that you've applied what you've learned in situations that followed

This should give you enough material for 1000 words but IMO, you don't need to hit the 1000 mark if you have a concise, incisive essay that makes your point in less.

I'm in for R1 as well.

How is everyone approaching the first essay? Here's what I was thinking:

Intro (100 words)
Past experience (100 words)
Goals - short term (200 words)
Goals - long term (200 words)
Why Wharton, why now? (150 words)
Conclusion (50-100 words)

Any suggestions if I should focus on a particular part of the essay more or less? Should I even spend 100 words talking about my past experience?

Thanks in advance!

Are you re-applying? I was dinged in R2, and wondering if I should retry. I requested a feedback session but nobody from adcom got back to me. :(

I'm in for R1.

I paid Wharton a visit a few years ago and loved it. Atmosphere was casual, friendly. (except for the interviewing applicants at the time - they seemed scared :) ) The people were really sharp. Look forward to applying.

It sounds like they haven't changed a bit since the visit I had in 2006. Philly was charming - my visit was in the fall, right in the middle of interviews and classes and the campus had some kind of an organization fair showcasing the clubs available to Undergrads and Graduate students.

At that time we were assigned 4 current students to share their experience with the program. I remember one had a Finance background and was an avid Golfer, while another one had a small business and had created a Taxi cab credit card charging machine before starting his MBA. The students were very down to earth, casual and friendly and yet they had a lot to show for, even before joining in.

One of the students took us around the campus to a nice Gyro place nearby. She showed us the housing area and told us she gave up her car before coming to Philadelphia - the city has excellent public transportation so she found having a car, unnecessary. When the group got back into the main building the students had a nice long conversation with us in a large classroom and were open to answering all of the questions asked.

I also got a chance to attend a Negotiations class. The class was using the case method and was running through an analysis of a previous negotiation. The class appeared very diverse. There were also excellent comments by the students with financial analysis of the different positions they had taken during the negotiations. I think participation was an important part of the grade. The professor (can't remember his name of the top of my head) told several amusing and very memorable stories from his past international negotiations.

My final impressions from the experience were that Wharton's students are smart, confident and dressed casually. On the way out I passed by the university bookstore and grabbed a couple of books from the MBA curriculum list. The negotiations book they were using was a tiny compilation of wisdom written by a Wharton professor. The book is called "Bargaining for advantage" and is excellent.
