this thread has been pretty quiet for the past few days without anyone posting interview invites... did anyone hear anything this week?

With all of our wishing and hoping, it's also important to note that last year the largest invitation wave went out on the final notification day (Friday, Nov. 11th last year). According to the stats from last year, the biggest invitation waves were 10, 10, and then 15 (a 50% increase!). If the prior data is any indication of future performance, there are still a lot of invites to go out. Keep wishing.

I personally know a current Wharton MBA student who got her invitation on the last day, last year :-)

Don't lose hope guys. I just received an invite. What are the odds that the email would pop up exactly at the time that I am going through the forums and the Wharton website trying to figure out if something is updated?

Interesting to note that 3 out of the 5 people (including myself) who have been invited today have listed their industry as Energy and Utilities. Are we seeing a trend in terms of how the decisions are coming out?

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.

Exactly. I've heard similar stories in numerous fields. Ain't over 'till it's over. Examples are the lucky folks that got their interview invites just a little bit ago. Congrats guys and girls. :)

Personally, I know I have a unique story and my app gets passed around quite a bit because it's not the typical narrative. Plenty of folks are probably in the same boat.

Well I wish you all the best and hope for a similar outcome as my background is also highly unique and probably would require multiple rounds of review before someone decides on my app. However, I must confess that most, if not all, of Wharton's interviews are face to face, and with the group discussion this year, for someone like me who's an international applicant, there isn't much hope. A skype interview negates both these aspects.

So, I'm assuming a ding - and that is hurtful as I had some expectations from Wharton of atleast an interview even if i don't finally make it. All the best to everyone else! Cheers!
