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.


True. WL will be like being in a Limbo. And I have no motivation to work on the remianing apps at this time. I would have assumed they would invite less people because of the TBD, due to logistics of the ordeal.

Also, assuming the information on this site is a fair subset of the application pool, based on people who have updated their information looks like 10% were interviewed.. so even if we applied a 5% margin error, it seems lower than in the past years where they interviewed nearly 40% of the class and of that 40% got in...

(I know I am overthinking it)


I hope you are right :)

Hi,

There was an online chat hosted by Energy Club Co-Presidents in December and September. During the chats they said they will be posting the transcripts on the website. I have tried finding online on the S2S forum but haven't found it, is anyone aware where I can find these chat transcripts.

Thanks,
Vikram

i see an interview rate of ~40% still being consistent. 12% invited to interview and 22% interviewed. i believe "invited to interview" are people who just didn't update post interview to "interviewed".

Does wharton ever let people know early or is it only on the date they gave?

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

Any reason to read into not getting this email after interviewing?

Historically it is the day of the deadline, no sooner. I like that Wharton makes it a bit easier to relax in that way.

Does anyone know how they let people know? Do you wake up in the morning and check your status online? of so what time?
Or do they call people all during the day and change online app status at night?

I think I am so nervous to hear from them coz i've done zilch for Round 2 apps, and i'd really like a proper relaxed holiday season/new years

Thanks! As always.. i've beens talking their board and they send that message out after i make my post :D

They don't mention a timing.. so I guess if we don't hear anything by EOD it implies you didn't get in? I want it to be the 20th already!

Guys, quick question: given Wharton posts the R1 result at 5:00pm local time, does it make calls to admits the day before or in the morning of the result release day? Thanks!

Not all admits will get a call. Wharton will do their best to call as many admits as possible before the decision is released online, but not everyone will get the call in time.

Goodluck to everyone.

paytoncool, where did you see that the decisions would be released at 5:00? It seems from the post above that decisions were posted at 1:43 last year.

Decision release time as indicated in an earlier email with instructions on the next steps

They used “by 5" instead of "at 5" though. Let's see. I guess my question was the timing of admit call

Oddly enough, something changed in my online app main page. My option to view my interview decision letter is now gone. Has that occurred with everyone else?
