Submitted!! My first application this season. !!! Now a long wait till feb.

All the best to fellow R2 applicants. :)


Guys, quick question: What did you put in the general information section as an end date for activities, which you are still pursuing? Or did you leave it empty.

Many thanks


I left them empty to show continuity.

I'm in the exact same situation as you. I don't get why Wharton is not allowing re-applicants to submit both the normal re-applicant essay and the optional one. I understand that they want to cut down on the number of essays they have to read, but they're not giving us a lot of breathing room here. I think victor is right that going up to around 300 should be ok. Not sure about 350; that's really pushing it. Have you e-mailed the admissions office about this?


Shawshank and others who are in the same boat as us (reapplicants with extenuating circumstances :-D ),

adcom got back to me and looks like they are fine with two essays of 250 words each for reapplicants with extenuating circumstances. Although, I would still not use more than 300-320 words. They are being courteous and I would reply in kind :)

Based on R1, I don't believe anyone got a confirmation of their application. There were a few adcom blasts about their review progress but nothing like "yes, we have your app and are reviewing it now".

Perhaps I remember wrong or they updated their system. Either way, good luck!! :)

This quote from the email today seems to imply that they won't be doing this group interview for round 2? Was this mentioned before?

"If you are invited for an interview, you will need to complete your interview by Friday, March 15th. Interviews will be available on campus with second-year Wharton MBA Students who are full members of the Admissions Committee and off campus in various locations around the world by Admissions staff members. All interview options are equally considered within the admissions process."

Good catch -- I missed that. Can anyone comment on this?

Yeah, not sure what the round 1 "here's what happens next" email said about the interviews...

It didn't seem like students were involved in the TBD or interview in round 1, but I don't know firsthand.

This is quite different from previous years when Wharton released all invites in 2 consecutive Fridays. The conspiracy theory on GMAT Club about who got invites in the first batch was quite amusing.

2nd year students ran the TBD and did the post-TBD one on one interview. Round 2 sounds like it will be the same.

Hi, right now, I try to log in the online application, but it turned out "Your ID is invalid". Does anybody see this?

You have probably already read this from the email to all R2 applicants.

The email says:
"The Admissions Committee will release interview invitations between Tuesday, January 29th and Friday, February 22nd. Due to the nature and complexity associated with the admissions process there is no particular order in which invitations are released. Also on February 22nd, the Committee will release all final admissions decisions to candidates that are not being invited for an interview and therefore no longer being considered for admission. "

Historically R2 is a bigger round than R1. More apps means adcom needs more time to review everyone's information. Hopefully with the team based interviews, more of you have the chance to show adcom who you are!
