If that's right then the earliest we should expect a call is Monday, 29th October? Seems unlikely since India interview dates start from 6th November.


Frankly, I don't know, but my information comes from this post (my bold):

No rejections will be sent out until the mid decision day (Nov. 9 I assume). Last year interview invites went out in increments roughly once per week. There wasn't one mass emailing for 80% of invitees. From what I saw it seemed like a pretty steady # of invites in each wave. I can't tell you the frequency of the waves or at what time of day the emails are sent. I can tell you that the invites on a particular day are all sent out at the same time (i.e. if people report interview invites around 2:00 p.m. then there won't be more at 3:00 or 4:00). It is possible to be invited on the very last day.

Same here. They really need to fix that this is the second time this has happened. Ridiculous!

Full for m e too. They need a bigger chat room ... Or at the very least they should post the chat transcript afterwards.


I think it's simply blocked until right before the chat. Mine says full but "0 users" in the room. Let's keep trying.


I am getting the same error. I dropped them an email. I guess you need to check the time for login as well. It's in one hours times.

Is it safe to presume that applicants from India who haven't heard yet have been dinged (given they're only interviewing in India from November 6-9th)? I wish they would just put us out of our misery!

Also - if anyone who was able to access the chat could summarize the major points for those of us that weren't able to get in, that would be really helpful!

Guys, once you login to the Wharton website it says the time of chat is 5PM EST, which is one hour after Philly time. You may want to check it out at 6PM philly time again just to be sure.

Guys, I was able to log into the chat(last 15 mins). Here are 4 responses(from the adcom member) for ppl who are waiting for an invite:

1. No geographic patterns.
2. Invites anytime/day till 9th Nov.
3. Cannot provide the number of invites they sent out yesterday.
4. Will not upload the transcript.

So not much new info there.

Still good to have it confirmed, especially for an international applicant like me. The number of international invitations so far was not encouraging. Thank you for providing this!

If you try logging into the chat room now, you should be able to see excerpts of what was asked earlier. Not as convenient as being in the actual chat, but better than nothing

Guys..I was able to participate in the chat..few things that they mentioned:

1) Due to the travel involved, they try and prioritize international applicant notification, but notifications can be sent out at any time till 9th Nov.
2) They notify in batches, but there is no set schedule. It will be on weekdays, b/w 9 am and 5 p.m. EST
3) Interview candidates will be given two prompts to prepare prior to the TBD. These will be given once the interview is scheduled. The TBD will be for 45 mins. After that each candidate will have a 15 min 1-on-1 interview
4) 1 of the 2 prompts will be used for the TBD.

Hope this helps.

Curious to know if any applicants from India have received a Wharton interview invite yet. Please let us know.


I did.


I saw a couple of people on BTG also invited. Waiting nervously now.

Qtrip - are you interviewing in Delhi or Mumbai? Any idea of the number of slots available in Delhi? Also, whats your background? Thanks!

The 15min 1-on-1 interview is the regular interview, as in other schools?
Sounds VERY short!
