I think its funny how every school claims to be innovative, yet everyone copies each other in this process. I applaud Wharton for thinking outside of the box on this one.

Although apparently some international schools have been doing this for awhile...

I am a big fan of the TBD, but you are correct that that Wharton wasn't the first one to do a group interview. LBS has had them and IMD has a major group case exercise as part of its application process.

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 everyone get this message? Is there still anyone on this board that hasn't gotten this message?

I know it's silly to begin speculating about all this given that D-day is only a week away, but can't help it!!!



I interviewed at the end of February and never received the thank you email. My interview was with an ad com member, rather than a student, if that makes a difference.

This waiting is wreaking havoc on my nerves.

I've booked dinner with friends at a fancy French restaurant that's usually out of my price range, to prepare for all eventualities. If I get in, it'll be celebratory. If I don't, I will console myself with cherry-glazed duckling & panna cotta strawberries three-ways. And wine, lots of wine. :-D

What are y'all doing?


No plans yet, but my night will definitely also involve lots of wine. This will be my final decision, and either way want to celebrate the process coming to a close. And stave off anxiety about making a decision for one night.


My bachelor party is this weekend so I'm not sure I'll be able to stomach wine Tuesday, but I'll damn sure try! Just get me to Thursday when I've heard from Booth and Wharton...

Ha, my bachelor party is also this weekend- a welcome distraction from the waiting on decisions. Good luck on both fronts.

I'm sure someone has mentioned it, but how does Wharton let you know in terms of when they call and when they release decisions?

It's a NYSE holiday, so the markets are closed. I'll probably be reading up on balance sheet recessions, but that's more a function of my own nerditude.

I'm wondering this too - phone call for those that got in and then a mass email for the dings? Any time frame guesses?

One more question for those already admitted. Did your online status change on decision day?

If you scroll back to R1 in this thread, it looks like they were released around midday (1:00ish EST). Who knows if that will be the case again though; as far as I know nothing has communicated aside from the date.

Lets get something clear - are the acceptance decisions coming on 25th or 26th ? I have read both dates with equal conviction.
Please can someone give a definite date?
