Just to clarify, the 1-min intro refers to self-intro (like where am i from, what do i do), not an elevator pitch of your idea right?

Also, along the lines of bringing in notes, did anyone bring in an iPad? Or maybe a smaller, less obnoxious tablet like an iPad mini or Kindle fire...?

No the 1 min is for your pitch/answer to the question.

I would NOT bring notes/iPad/etc. You're in a small room and supposed to work together, don't deviate from that and refer to your iPad or take notes during the session. After the first person goes, you should all just build off of each other so I would emphasize NOT over-preparing. Come in with a few 'highlights' of how you want to answer the question.


Oh wow 1-min pitch for your idea?! Glad I asked, would have been caught off-guard completely otherwise. As for the iPad, it really just sets me at ease knowing that I have something to refer to if I have a brain freeze, don't really plan to use it otherwise. Hmm I suppose people bring folios with them since we are asked to provide a copy of resume at 1-1? So it won't look terribly out-of-place if I happen to have a black gadget + folio with me?

On second thoughts, I was only worried about brain freezes if I had to talk non-stop for a longer time and give elaborate details about my idea. Since it's only gonna be 1-min I guess it will be more of an organic discussion, bouncing and critiquing ideas off one another. I'll should do away with the notes and iPad then! Thanks :wink:

Yes, you're in a room with only 5-6 people and expected to give a short answer so you would probably already be dead in the water in any scenario that required notes/an iPad. I'd highly suggest not relying on it.

Seems like there's a lot of confusion over the Wharton process. I'm happy to do mock interviews with people, PM if interested (warning, it won't be free though, I don't have that kind of time unfortunately).

Hello everyone,

How about the 10-15 min interview? What are the type of questions you were asked? Also, do you think the interviewer reads the candidate's app before?

You should have received an email titled, "PLEASE READ: Team-Based Discussion Confirmation and Logistics," shortly after you selected a spot. I would just call admissions if you never got it. I am also interviewing the 11th- good luck and see you there!

Guys,
Do you think it is still necessary to write a thank-you note after TBD? For me it seems a bit odd to thank a person who most of the time sits in the corner of the room and does nothing in terms of interaction with the group...

He's still sitting there. A thank you never hurt anything. I recommend it.

Hi:

Any international candidates who have been admitted to Wharton in Round 1.

What forms etc. have you filed for Financial Aid? Do you need to file the CSS? How do you get a no cosigner loan?

Thanks

Hey guys - curious if the R1 admit decisions all went out on one day or were they staggered like the interview invites?

They went out all on one day a few days before Christmas. R2 will be the same; 3/25, I think.

Just got the message thanking us for participating in the TBD and a few notes from the financial aid team regarding fellowships and financing the MBA...hopefully I'm putting some of those notes to use in the fall!

Three weeks until we know. Best of luck to everyone in Round 2. In the meantime, I've got a few bachelor parties to attend which should kill some days, and some brain cells.



Just got that message as well and came onto the board to figure out if anyone knew what was up with this email.

I mean, it is always nice to get more information, and Wharton has been great at keeping me updated. But the email was a bit strange, like - "Hey, just so you know, you don't actually have to apply separately for aid, so there's nothing for you to do right now, but just wanted to let you know it's avaliable!"

:P Maybe I'm just overanalyzing.

Pretty sure from R1, the followup email came a few weeks after you interviewed. If you interviewed earlier, you got the email earlier.
