How worried should be if we haven't heard anything yet? I know it's earlier, but these posts are scaring me esp after not getting anything from HBS :-/

I think that it's almost done because most of the interview spots are filled up....

Wow that was quick. I signed up just 2 days ago and every spot was still open.

How is Wharton's middle 50% range 660-760? so it means 25% or ~200 kids have 660 or lower? that's strange for a Top3 school. Any thoughts?

Maybe these spots were just for this wave. There will be new spots for next wave. I'm not sure, just guess... finger cross for next week

Got the interview invitation today...Indian applicant: GMAT 760, IIT-Delhi graduate, 2.5 years of work experience


Can someone give an update on % of slots filled up in Mumbai and New Delhi ?

I'm assuming that's a reasonable representative of % of invites gone out.

Well, for the on-campus interview dates there are about 30 total groups/interview dates shown and only 4 that have not filled up completely. However, as I was probably one of the first to signup for my interview (all dates were available when I logged in 3 days ago), I do not recall there being so many interview dates. My guess is that the Wharton AdComs have added new slots after the first few started to fill up. This leads me to believe that its very possible more invites will go out and more slots will be created.



I'll be surprised if more than 25% of the invites have gone out. I think the bulk of the invites will go out in the next 2 weeks, so there's plenty of time for those anxiously awaiting for invites. Best of luck to everyone.

So my friend confirmed that there's about 27-30 on-campus interview groups, but they all fell within 14-18 Feb which is a little odd. However there are also around 8-10 interview groups held at the SF campus that are interspersed throughout the interview period (till March), along with other international locations.

I hope this means that there could be more on-campus interview dates opening up later, because I can't fathom why they would cluster all of them over a long weekend. At the same time, we are looking at 35-40 groups x 5-6 slots per group = 175 - 240 domestic slots that are virtually all filled. That does sound like a pretty high number but not quite enough to fill a R2 domestic class I hope?

Suppose half of them get accepted, of which 70% enrolled, we are only looking at 60-85 domestic students enrolled from R2? I think the number should be considerably higher given that there are around 0.65*850=550 students in each class that are based in the States (of which I'm guessing at least half must have applied in R2). So I guess moral of the story is, let's not lose hope yet!

I wish Wharton would just release all decisions on the same day like Booth though so that I won't be wasting time on guesstimates. I'm not even trying to be a consultant! :roll:

I don't think on campus interviews are limited only to domestic applicants. I am a candidate from Russia, but will participate in a on-campus interview if invited. So there will definitely be some more slots.

All,

I guess it's obvious now that free slots are added throughout invite sending process. I guess it's done specifically to prevent overload in very hot locations; I guess these locations are on-campus, India, something else maybe.

Hey guys, who were admitted in round 1, do you have any tips for the group discussions? Any help is much appreciated.


1) Prepare, prepare, prepare for both topics. Have a good number of data points so that you can speak intelligently.
2) Be nice
3) Don't be SO nice that there is no conversation

If you do those 3 things, you'll be fine. I don't want to say too much, but trust me as simplistic as they sound those will serve you VERY WELL if you execute each. Sorry that I cannot provide more detail; don't want to upset admissions.


Prepare how? Are you expected to support your assertions with personal anecdotes, facts / trends, or both?

Preparation got more difficult for Round 2 in my opinion. The questions are more sophisticated for round 2 TBD!
