Has anyone applying to Wharton MBA/Harvard Kennedy School dual degree received an interview invite??


enriqueaguilarf,

I had applied to the dual degree and haven't heard anything so far. As an Indian applicant, it is difficult to be optimistic any longer.

@madknife chill with the negativity! They said November 9. Give them until then.

Maybe they are just so impressed they are trying to decide if they should admit you without an interview ;)!

realism is often confused with pessimism
in any case, i wish you and everyone else the best of luck tomorrow! just updated my statistical model and i think ~10 people on this forum should be getting invites tomorrow. let me know if i'm right or not!

No. I calculate around 50 in our pool of 200 coming in tomorrow.

Wharton accepts 40% of interviewees. Implying that they interview 1200/.4=3000 or half the people that apply. We have 200 of us who submitted in round 1 and 50 have heard/updated their profile. Also, this assumes that we are an average distribution of candidates... we aren't. The people in this forum are probably the top candidates (GMAT average is well above general Wharton average) so more than 50 tomorrow would not shock me.

Not sure of your model or math... You may be a statistician so maybe I should listen to you but I figure I'm probably decent with numbers as well...

not that either of us can claim to know what we are talking about... but just to kill time and have some fun while we wait...
1) i adjusted for the % of international applicants (we have 66% here vs. 32% avg as per original post)
2) since we are still in the shadow of the election... i'm gonna fact check your gmat claim... as per OP, it appears that we have slightly higher average gmat, the same 80% gmat range, but slightly lower gpa... so it's all awash for me...
3) this is completely subjective and neither of us will be able to convince the other, but i really don't think the "top" applicants need to be on this forum... :)

Top applicants are probably top applicants because they are neurotic... people like us (otherwise stated, people in this forum!).

We know nothing, but rather than wallow in my own filth and depression for the next 24 hours, I am going to do anything and everything I can to keep my life going forward. And hey, when numbers skew your way, you're gonna grab on to that!!

Lets all hope for the best tomorrow!

Just one quick fact (fact?!?!) for those still awake: If you take a look at the forum stats for Chicago Booth, 40% (forty!) of the applicants updated their status to invited to interview. If you look at Wharton, on the other hand, 26% have the same status. I was wondering reasons for the difference between the schools and the one that I like the most is that there is still one wave of invites to go out for wharton!

Thinking about it, I think I can sleep a little better. good luck to you all!

yep. actually, if you look at the wharton thread from last year, 46% of applicants on this forum were interviewed! (that said, the same thread also indicated that 143% of applicants were internationals... so don't know if we should trust it that much) so unless something went horribly wrong this year, there should be more coming tomorrow.

Yes they said you will find out by November 9 either way. October 8 they sent out an email detailing it.
