what a day....first a lay off and now a ding.

Don't sweat the small stuff guys, things could be a lot worse! We made the effort and I don't know about you but I for sure discovered a lot of things about myself that I had not given much thought about before applying. There are other schools and not getting an MBA from here is not the end of the world. (We are all alive and kickin'. What's more to ask?)

Congrats to those who did get through to the next step, goodluck!

Wooooooooooooooo got the ding. Can't do anything but laugh. MD from Penn and two stellar recs from the Leonard Davis Institute of Health Economics. Maybe my best set of essays. And I'm Native, so I'm used to the white man guilt going in my favour even without the other credentials. :lol: Kidding, of course. Just have to laugh it off and move on. God wants me elsewhere. Hope you folks can do the same and get into some stellar programs. Plenty of talented folks out there, and like someone said, with the volume they (HSW) get, it's a crapshoot.

Ding. But I did get a letter from Wharton today asking if I would like to donate to the Wharton Fund. Awesome right?

Rejected. Surely there were some interview invites that went out today, right?

Sorry to hear of all the dings today! This is only the beginning of the journey, though, and we'll all end up somewhere that's a good fit for us. Best of luck everyone; keep your heads up!!

For those of you lucky enough to still be in the game for R1 and for any prospective applicants for R2, R3, or later years -- I have updated the first post with the link to the Wharton Admissions blogs and the Current Student blogs. Enjoy!

Sorry to hear about all the dings folks. I am a re-applicant from 2-years ago (was waitlisted through the entire summer at Wharton) and ultimately didn't get into any of the schools I applied to, so I know how it feels. This time around I've fared much better and have interviews at both Wharton + Booth, so there is hope!

For those of you who have had your Wharton interviews, can you please comment on the structure of the group interview? I have received the prompts, but I'm wondering if the adcoms basically say "ready-set-GO!" or if they facilitate the entire conversation. Not sure what to expect at this point! Thanks.

Hi - I'm based in Europe and just received an invitation after COB Friday to participate in a team-based discussion. Problem is, the only sessions in Europe are next week in London and they are all full. I'm working full time and it's simply not feasible for me to travel to the US campus (which is where most remaining sessions are) before the 30th. Is anyone in the same boat - and do you know whether they have any alternative options? I sent an email to admissions explaining my situation and they simply responded saying the strongly recommend that I sign up to one of the available slots. Doesn't really seem very promising, but if there are others in the same position in Europe, perhaps they'd be willing to organize an additional session.

hey guys, is everyone doing the campus visit when they go to Wharton for the interview? Would it reflect poorly if we didn't?

Well I guess that makes the 5th time now in 7-8 months that I've been dinged-doesn't sting so much when you're used to it. Good lord, I must be the exact candidate that all of the admissions consultants write about...rejected despite the GMAT score.

You and me both... though I guess for me the issue was lacking some good leadership anecdotes I could exploit in the essays.

I did the campus visit back in April so I will not be doing it when. I go to interview. If you haven't done it I would recommend doing just because you can comment on it in the one on one portion if they ask.
