Does anyone know what is the approximate percentage of admitted students to interview invites? Historically it has been around 50%, but there may have been a change due to new inerview format. For example, if there are six people participating in the team discussion, does it mean still 3 people on average will be admitted?

From Round 1, I remember it to have been 40%, which is the same as the historical figure. I know one other person from my interview group was admitted - perhaps there were others, but I haven't seen them yet.

did anyone get interview invite as yet ?
Also i want to know what happens to candidates who live in countries where there are no group interviews? For example I live in Pakistan so would that put me on a disadvantage ? also are there any alternate ways to be interviewed ?

i would appreciate if there are some other Pakistani candidates who made it into Wharton this year would provide any insight

Well, everyone can't be lucky in this process - after all only a fraction of the applicants pool will be admitted. Its a well-known fact that is not disputed. How then I can take your words to my heart if I should discount it at least (1-0.19)*100%=81%?

@mbaover30 - any broad sense as to what % of the total invites will be given out today (based on round 1 trends) ?

My guess it is somewhere in the 20-40% range (I know.. that's very broad).

But I base it on the following (partly proven) assumptions:

1) They spread it over a four-week period and send invites roughly once per week. So, assuming they send invites on 4 or 5 days it has to be at least 20%.
2) It won't be the majority, there are many more to come. So max. 40% shouldn't be too far off.

But I didn't dig into this very deep... I am sure many of the guys here observed R1 and/or the previous years much closer than I did.

According to the R1 posts, seems to be in the afternoon EST. In four to five hours, I think. Online application status will change first before the email gets to you.

Do invites go out randomly or only at certain times? I see that its the afternoon EST. Going forward, will emails be sent on certain days (ie Tuesday afternoons?)

Edit: nevermind, saw the answer at the top of the page. Sorry!

Days can be random.

From the email sent by Adcom on Jan 4: "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."
