I got the follow up today as well and interviewed last week (Tuesday, Feb 26). I'm sure everyone will get the follow up...just a matter of time.

Did anyone feel the 1:1 portion was a little rushed.

To be perfectly honest, I feel like the 1:1 portion is more for our benefit (making us feel like we had a fair shot, air our concerns, etc.) than it is for the school to get more information than what they've already collected from the TBD. Of course, if the two data points are wildly different that could make a difference. But most likely not.

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.


I was wondering, does anyone have a good idea about the percentage of students who get scholarships? Based on the Wharton Gmatclub stats, it seems about 20~25% are receiving scholarships. Does this number seem accurate?

Cheers!

I received an email from reporter for a prominent national publication this morning who would like to speak with HBS and/or Wharton applicants about their application experience this year at these two programs. In the reporter's words:

Quote:
"I’m just curious to get a student voice saying whether they think the Wharton and HBS changes offered them a good outlet to show their genuine selves, and whether they felt their fellow applicants were prepared or over-prepared and scripted.

"Ideally, I’d talk to someone in the next day or two. "


This could be a great way to make a connection with a reporter with whom you would like to have a connection. Trust me. You've all heard of this publication.

You do not have to have been accepted; you do have to have reached the interview phase at either one or both schools and be willing to be quoted by name.

If you are interested, please either PM me or email linda@accepted.com.

Thanks,
Linda

Although I am not sure how different it is from posting interview reports on message boards like this, I can't imagine many round 2 applicants or waitlisters will feel very open to an interview with a well known media outlet since schools do ask you keep interview processes confidential. Perhaps round 1 applicants who have already been accepted or dinged (although that may throw a wrench in the objectivity).

The difference is the opportunity for dialogue and also a slight reality check.

The reporter and I both recognize that R2 applicants may be reluctant to speak on the record. R1 applicants, accepted or rejected, should feel a little freer to speak. :-) If you are a R2 applicant and willing to speak anonymously only, I can forward your email address to the reporter with the caveat that you are only willing to speak anonymously. If anonymity will work, or no one is willing to speak on the record, you may be contacted.

If you know R1 applicants, please let them know their input is being sought since they may not be on this board now.

Thanks,
Linda

I believe at the information sessions, the admissions team provides these figures pretty clearly. I will check my notes from last fall to see whether I still have them. If so, then I will post them up here -- the percentage of applicants that it interviews and the percentage of admits given to those who have interviewed.

Does anyone know how the rest of the application is reviewed after the interview. Is the entire application re-reviewed or is it if you do well on the interview you are admitted/do poorly are dinged?

Most, if not all, schools say they do a holistic re-review of all the applications after the interviews. I'm inclined to trust them.

I don't think anyone aside from the Admissions Committee really can KNOW for sure, but from everything that is said, it is part of the entire package. Not everyone enters the interview as an equal. For some they may be a 99% clear admit, as long as they don't totally screw up the interview. Others may enter the interview with little chance of admit from the start. Just do your best and know that it is just a part of the overall package. I have my final interview of the year with Wharton on Monday-- I'm already feeling the postpartum depression....

I believe that it is reviewed holistically along with the rest of your application. The way that I view the admission process, is that there is a qualification portion and a fit portion.

Anyone who is invited to an interview is qualified and should definitely feel good about the invite in itself. However, there are a LOT of people who are qualified to get into these great schools.

From there, it is a matter of fit. So then they re-evaluate your background and demographics to see how you would fit in constructing a diverse class and they also see what kind of team player and leader you are through the group discussion.

You may get dinged from Wharton after the interview, not because you did horrible in the interview, but perhaps you have an engineering background and they have chosen enough engineers at this point or the same case with military, finance people, etc...

With all of that said, definitely go in there and give that interview your best shot!!! Rather than telling them what kind of a team leader you have been, SHOW them the kind you are and you will be fine! :)


I don't think I have seen anyone with this much success on GC. Congrats on getting into all those schools. Have you decided where you are heading to?

If you get to go last (by pure alphabetical luck, I was assigned the last spot in my group), it's a bonus because the time pressure is off. My 1:1 interview lasted upwards of 30 minutes, although it was mostly my questions for the interviewer as opposed to their questions of me. Regardless, I think having less of a time crunch is ideal. Not sure if people really have much of a say in it though...

Good luck everyone! Regardless of outcome, congrats on making it this far!
