Did anyone get an email from Wharton Technology Club? Not sure how they got my email, but I'm assuming it's from a section on the application where I indicate which organizations I would join at Wharton... Sigh, where's my interview invite!

People really need to calm down. I was one of the guilty parties who thought the domestic invites were basically done, but after talking to round 1 admits, I realized that I was totally off base. Several domestic admits from round 1 told me that they did not get invites until the very last week. Adcom creates more slots as they give out interviews. Also, there is NO correlation between when you get an interview and the strength of your application.

Having said that, I totally understand why people are so nervous right now, especially with booth's mid-decision date tomorrow.

While invites are going out at random, we had seen a wave pattern on Tuesdays. Last Tuesday, most of the invites went out around 1:30 pm. It seems nothing has gone out for today yet; that, or since the pool of candidates expecting invite has shrunk so fewer applicants are reporting now.
In any case, good luck for today. if it hasn't gone out yet, it is coming...

Congrats for in the interview invitations.
For those of you that might be interested, we will hold a group-based simulation on Saturday 16th at 16:00 CET.
We will NOT use Wharton's prompt in order to avoid violating the School's policies, but it will be a good opportunity to simulate the group-based discussion environment.
Private message me if you'd like to join.
For the rest, good luck to everyone!

Can someone that has received an invite direct me to the prompt? Did it come in a separate email after registering for an interview?

Just received the invite! However, all the slots for my hub city appear to be full. Any idea if they open more slots later?

fellow friends:
is morning interview or afternoon interview better considering I want to squeeze in a class visit?

I felt i might be fresher in the morning but really want to have some direct class visit feeling before the interview.

Got an invite this evening too! What a pleasant surprise I honestly thought this was lost cause already. To those still waiting, hang in there. Don't lose hope but don't lose sleep over it either! Good things sometimes happen when you least expect them!

Dougdoug: look out for the prompt in a separate email from admissions!

I was debating this as well. I decided to take the interview day off from work and fly into Philly the night before. I'll be doing a 1pm session, so I can sleep in until about 10, do a quick workout and head to the interview feeling refreshed.

I suggest you try to squeeze in a class visit. It really helped me get a better sense of what Wharton was about.

From my understanding, the prompt is the actual discussion topic. You will need to prepare what is asked and come to the TBD with the intention of discussing the ideas you have come up with.

Got the invite! Never have I been so happy to see an e-mail come through! A bit on my background:

West Coast of US, applied on 1/3 (like 30 minutes before the deadline)
Hispanic Female, 25 y/o
Strategy Consulting at a large firm (international focus), 4 years work experience at matriculation
3.55 GPA, 680 GMAT (verbal kicked the pants off my quant score though)

Basically, I'm providing this to let you know that there's hope for people without stratospheric GMAT scores, especially if you have good work experience, recommendations, extracurriculars, and something interesting in your essays. Don't worry or speculate about if it's "all over" yet. It's not. There are still 10 days left. Best of luck to everyone!

I had assumed today would be the day for the Lauder invites. I didn't get one, so I guess my chances aren't looking so great. Anyway, those of you who scored the invite today, do you mind saying whether or not you are Lauder applicants? Congrats to all of you.
