Got the interview invitation today...Indian applicant: GMAT 760, IIT-Delhi graduate, 2.5 years of work experience


Can someone give an update on % of slots filled up in Mumbai and New Delhi ?

I'm assuming that's a reasonable representative of % of invites gone out.

Well, for the on-campus interview dates there are about 30 total groups/interview dates shown and only 4 that have not filled up completely. However, as I was probably one of the first to signup for my interview (all dates were available when I logged in 3 days ago), I do not recall there being so many interview dates. My guess is that the Wharton AdComs have added new slots after the first few started to fill up. This leads me to believe that its very possible more invites will go out and more slots will be created.


So my friend confirmed that there's about 27-30 on-campus interview groups, but they all fell within 14-18 Feb which is a little odd. However there are also around 8-10 interview groups held at the SF campus that are interspersed throughout the interview period (till March), along with other international locations.

I hope this means that there could be more on-campus interview dates opening up later, because I can't fathom why they would cluster all of them over a long weekend. At the same time, we are looking at 35-40 groups x 5-6 slots per group = 175 - 240 domestic slots that are virtually all filled. That does sound like a pretty high number but not quite enough to fill a R2 domestic class I hope?

Suppose half of them get accepted, of which 70% enrolled, we are only looking at 60-85 domestic students enrolled from R2? I think the number should be considerably higher given that there are around 0.65*850=550 students in each class that are based in the States (of which I'm guessing at least half must have applied in R2). So I guess moral of the story is, let's not lose hope yet!

I wish Wharton would just release all decisions on the same day like Booth though so that I won't be wasting time on guesstimates. I'm not even trying to be a consultant! :roll:

I don't think on campus interviews are limited only to domestic applicants. I am a candidate from Russia, but will participate in a on-campus interview if invited. So there will definitely be some more slots.

All,

I guess it's obvious now that free slots are added throughout invite sending process. I guess it's done specifically to prevent overload in very hot locations; I guess these locations are on-campus, India, something else maybe.

Hey guys, who were admitted in round 1, do you have any tips for the group discussions? Any help is much appreciated.


1) Prepare, prepare, prepare for both topics. Have a good number of data points so that you can speak intelligently.
2) Be nice
3) Don't be SO nice that there is no conversation

If you do those 3 things, you'll be fine. I don't want to say too much, but trust me as simplistic as they sound those will serve you VERY WELL if you execute each. Sorry that I cannot provide more detail; don't want to upset admissions.

Prepare how? Are you expected to support your assertions with personal anecdotes, facts / trends, or both?

Yes, of course. If you think that the answer to world hunger is XYZ and you share with the group how you have worked on XYZ or you know a great deal about the history of XYZ then you will be in a good position. You want to leave the admissions fellows feeling that your being in the group added something to the conversation.

I disagree on it requiring preparation. You'll build off each other's ideas, just come up with a decent answer for each prompt. It was very obvious who prepared a speech in my group and it came off as a canned response.

Preparation got more difficult for Round 2 in my opinion. The questions are more sophisticated for round 2 TBD!

Just got an interview via email. Looks like the on-campus slots are restricted to before Feb. 20th, which is not a whole lot of notice...I may call the admissions office to ask if they plan to open additional ones.

Let us know if you do end up speaking with the admissions office.

Got invite few mins ago!

I had determined that I would never go to my application accounts to check status, just wait for emails. But 30 mins ago, for some reason I had the "what the heck" feeling and thus logged in to "just face it". Bam! "Blah blah... Invited to interview... Blah blah... Updated on Feb 5th..."
Seems that my account was updated just a minute before, because the Wharton email comes 30 mins after I got the news. My instinct works quite well doesn't it? :)
Those who hasn't got an invite yet, just sits tight, mr.+30 advised that we gotta believe we will get it, I trust him!

Hi Guys!

Congratulation to everyone who got an invite!

I am one of the fortunate ones too!

The invitation email asks us to login onto a hobsons page using our application credentials. But when I try to login, Hobsons throws an error that something wrong has happened and they will get back to me!

Anyone else facing this problem?

I am edgy as coz of the previous msgs saying the slots are filling up fast!

:-)
