Hi Guys,

Does Wharton have some kind of "Graduate Ambassadors" so that applicants can connect with current students with similar career interests or backgrounds? What is the best way to reach out to Wharton students for an international applicant who cannot make a campus visit?

Thanks,
Vikram


Possible ways to reach out are: a) attend an off-campus info session / admissions event, b) ask people you know to connect you with Wharton alumni in your city, c) call/email any questions that you have to the president/coordinator of a club that's of interest to you


Agree. Better way yet: visit campus.

I'm not sure what your career interests are, but I am a HCM applicant and after a short email to the HCM department I received the class' resume book, which contains every contact address from every single graduates it has that year.

Hey guys,

I am a R2 applicant and am currently filling out the online form.

2 questions:

1) In the education section, one can include the awards for each school. In the the general information section, Wharton asks again for university awards etc. So if I had full scholarship for a school, I include it twice?

2) General Information: Activities section. I started with most of my activities before college and am still highly involved. So I decided to include them in activities after college section. It does not make sense to put them also "while in college " activities? Correct?

Your help is highly appreciated

Thanks


1. I think it's fine to list your awards twice then, though it might be helpful to preview your app as a PDF. The layout/reasoning for how they ask their questions might become clearer then.

2. If you're listing your activities as after college, I don't think you should list them again as during college. Do you have other college activities you could add there?

Did anyone get an email from the Admissions Office titled "Thank You for Participating in the Team-Based Discussion"? I got one at 4 PM ET.

It also contains some information about the financial aid. I wonder whether this is a positive sign...

But I do know someone who got the email 3-4 days after interview while I had been waiting for 2 weeks to get it. So maybe there is some certain sequences that admins sending out emails.

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)

Did anyone else get that email about financing options today? I thought that was a bit strange to send out prior to any decisions actually being made.

I think everyone who interviews gets that email a few days after it's complete. Who knows, though.

I got it a few days ago. Apparently, this is common practice for the Wharton adcom.

Live Essay Writing Workshop, presented by Admissionado


Sigh. The MBA Application essays. Who thought it was a good idea to ask people to write 2000 words before they even get INTO school? Turns out, it doesn’t matter, because someone did… and now you have to come up with the most compelling and memorable essays about leadership that you can. And then do it again for every school you apply to.

It’s not easy, but this upcoming event should help. Submit your MBA Application essay to have an opportunity to have it reviewed for free by the team at Admissionado. Three essays will be selected, and if you are one of the lucky ones, you will have the opportunity to go through your essay with Phillip Herring (admissions expert and CBS MBA) in a live session. You will need to be OK with sharing your essay with attendees (don’t worry – we’ll keep your name/private info out of it), and available and online at the time of the event to chat it up with Phillip. Even if you aren’t selected, listen in, because there will still be plenty of essay advice to go around.

Submit your essay to lauren@admissionado.com by Monday, December 3. You will find out if you are selected by Wednesday, December 5. Then join the live event on Thursday, December 6 at 6pm PST. Register Now [FREE!]

Hi all,

for those who had their TBD and one-to-one interviews in London - can you share/PM to me the name of the interviewer please?
I have to contact her for an administrative stuff and it's difficult to find it out...

thanks a lot

Re: Wharton 2013 - Calling All Applicants [#permalink] New post 03 Dec 2012, 09:36
Hello, I would really appreciate the expert/peer opinion on this:

I am applying to Booth and Wharton in R2 - both require 2 recommendations. I am an entrepreneur in a brick and mortar business with a total 10 years of work experience, the last 5 of which were spent starting and growing my business successfully. Prior to that, I worked as an IT management consultant with a well-known firm.

I have the option of choosing 1) My Auditor/Financial adviser/mentor from my current business, 2) A senior customer representative from my current business or 3) My Practice partner from my previous consulting job as my recommenders. I am planning to choose the first 2, but that makes my application pretty uni-dimensional as my essays also focus on my business venture. My practice partner from consulting can bring a different perspective on my managerial/leadership skills (examples of my leading teams internationally across different countries). On the other hand, if I choose the partner from my previous job, it makes the recommendation content 5 years old. That makes the recommendation's current relevance questionable.

So, I am pondering over whom to choose as my recommenders. Would be grateful for your inputs.

Thanks.

Just wondering if anyone has a sense of what % of applicants were invited for interviews in R1 under the new interview format? Also, any sense of what % of interviewees actually make it in?

I want it to be the 20th already!

That is an area of concern for me (I realized there is nothing I can do). I am worry that because of the TBD they have interviewed more people and seen more candidate and to be honest a TBD is harder to differentiate candidates and they are going to put a boatload of people in the waiting list. I hope I either get in or rejected. I will hate to be in the waitlist.
