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!

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."

Online status says Invited to interview! Just got the email ... Wharton/Lauder US applicant based in India.

I need advise on whether I should do the interview in Mumbai, or visit the campus and do an on campus interview?
