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.


Got the invite today but not a Lauder applicant. Good luck all!

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!


Your post gives me some hope. Thanks for promptly sharing your profile and this can be helpful to a lot of us out here.

I share your score (high quants and relatively low verbal), international female applicant working in west coast for past 5yrs. Overall 8 yrs work experience.

You are right about extracurriculars and something interesting in the application. I hope I get invited too.

Thanks for posting!!
Good luck to all others who got invites.

Hi guys, does your application status change from "submitted" to "under review" when the AdComm actually review your application?
Mine still showed "Submitted" and I have no Idea if it means my application has not been reviewed yet.

I received an invite last evening. This was after I had written off all hope. So it was definitely a nice surprise. FYI I took the GRE vice the Gmat (engr nerd here) so maybe they really do accept the GRE...we will see after the interview however.

I got the invite Tuesday afternoon; funnily enough, it was the one afternoon when I turned all my devices off and went for a long walk. I was actually thinking through my contingency plans if I didn't get into any of the programs I applied to. Whaddya know :)

Submitted App: 01/02/13
Interview Invite: 02/12/13
Turnaround: 41 days

Take this with a grain of salt, but a 2nd year Wharton student told me that invites are done. This person though is NOT on the student adcom so totally possible that he is mistaken. Either way, I do think it's safe to assume that around 80% of the invites have gone out for round 2.

Best of luck to everyone.

I'm looking forward to the complete havoc this post is about to cause on this board...... I, however, am still holding out for Feb 22 as designated by adcom :-)

So if this person is likely not a credible source who is anywhere near the admissions process why would you post rumor/speculation from them?

I dont believe it ,for me the date is 22nd Feb . if the invites were done then Wharton would have declared it, instead of holding every one for another weeks of misery. Please don't spread baseless rumors.

Going crazy with the wait. I have checked my mail like 50 times since morning for any info from Wharton or Stanford. Harvard and Booth were like quick death rather then this misery of half living and half dead. Adcom have mercy :cry:
