Throwing out an idea here. Would anyone be interested in setting up an anonymous google hangout-style chat where we can practice the group discussions? I'm sure no matter how the practice sessions go, we'll be a bit more prepared for the cluster-f when the real interview happens.

PM me if you're interested

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.

UPenn, including Wharton's admissions office, will be closed Monday, 10/29 and Tuesday, 10/30 due to Hurricane Sandy. Normal business hours will resume on Wednesday, 10/31.

For those of you waiting for invites, looks like you'll be waiting until Wednesday to start obsessively checking your inboxes again.

Good luck, everyone, and stay safe!

Any invites from india, specifically delhi? Can anyone tell me how many slots there are for Delhi per the scheduler?


I got an invite today. Strangely enough, Delhi slots were full (3 slots - 9.30 AM, 1 PM, 3.30 PM on Nov-09) but Mumbai slots (3 slots x 3 days 06-08 Nov = 9 slots) were hardly full (only 1 slot out of the 9 was full). I booked for Mumbai right now even though I stay in Delhi.

Does anyone know when we'll get the TBD topics?

Based on what I've seen on the thread as well as the gmat applicant tracker for wharton, I believe we still have a decent amount of invites waiting to be sent out. My guess is that there will be one wave on Monday and then one final wave on the final day.

I did a quick count on the Wharton RD 1 applicant tracker:
# of applications submitted: 120
# of invited to interviews: 31
total: 151

Meaning that around 20% of people who have submitted applications have received invites. Of course the underlying assumption here (thanks CR) is that everyone who received an invite has updated...so to account for this, add on another 10-15 people who forgot to update and we are at around 25-30% invites. Per Wharton, they plan to send out invites to 40% of applicants. (http://poetsandquants.com/2012/08/19/40 ... team-test/)

On a range of pessimistic to optimistic, I would say 25%-50% of the total invites are still waiting to be sent out.

Lastly, as a pt of comparison, I checked out Booth’s RD 1, which we know sends out invites all at once. I feel like Booth and Wharton are fairly equal in competitiveness.
# of applications submitted: 79
# of invited to interview: 52
# of denied without interview: 11
Total: 142
52/142 = 36.7%. Assuming 45% of applicants receive interviews (range is 40-50% per: http://www.mbamission.com/blog/2011/04/ ... kurt-ahlm/) This means that 12 people did not update their statuses. This provides some support for the 10-15 figure I used above for Wharton.

Yeah – It’s been a slow morning at work but I too, lose a bit of hope as each day passes by. This is not a robust analysis, and reading it over I spotted a couple logic holes…but bottomline I am fairly confident in saying we still have a considerable amount of invites waiting to be sent out. It’s not over till it’s over!

I have a very close friend who received his invite last year on the LAST day of the window. You're not out until you receive a ding letter. Quit speculating and wait until they update your status.

I just had a thought that might give some of you still waiting some more hope. If I remember correctly, when I went to sign up there were 2 pages of interview slots with 100 lines each. That means one of 2 things: either each line on that page represents a full group session, in which case there could be a decent amount of spots left (not sure how many as I haven't looked recently), or each line represent a single interview slot and people are only able to view a small portion of the available interviews when they are invited to sign up (in which case there is even more hope for those waiting). Just my two cents. Either way, wishing everyone the best of luck for today/tomorrow!


Thank you for your insight! I'm feeling good. Made sure my lucky shirt and boxers are clean and ready for game day tomorrow (not going to bother wasting my good luck today.... Definitely not hearing until tomorrow. The way the world works!).

Best of luck to all of us still drifting in the wind. It will all be clearer soon.

1. How long have you known the applicant and describe your relationship to the applicant?
2. Provide an example of constructive feedback you have provided to the applicant. How did the applicant receive this feedback and what efforts did the applicant make to address the concern?
3. Please provide an example of a time when the applicant was particularly successful at interacting with others in a team (employees, peers, managers, etc.)? How does the applicant compare to his/her peers in this dimension?
4. How has the applicant’s career progressed and what sets them apart from their peers?
5. Is there anything else about this applicant that you would like us to know? (Optional)

Alright boys and girls, 15 days to go before the AdCom releases the R1 decisions.

This waiting game is nerve-racking. How are you guys dealing with it?

Since Wharton's my # 1 choice, I'm having a hard time working on R2 applications for my backup schools. No motivation whatsoever. Can't stay focused at work either. Keep playing back the events of the TBD and 1-on-1...

Already thinking about how drunk I'm gonna get on the 20th, win or lose...

The R1 email was exactly the same except for the dates. Don't worry -- if they had discontinued the group interview, everyone would know.

I'm on campus now for R1 admit weekend, and to all R2 Lauder admits, they are in fact still reading applications and handing out interview invites.

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.

Did Wharton give a window in which they will send interview invites? If it's a 3-4 week invite window and only one week has passed, it is way too early to think that all of the invites have gone out. Wharton invites people throughout the invite window, not just in the first few days. Sit tight and best of luck.
