Any word as to whether the invites are truly sent out at random (other than an emphasis on international invites early)? By random I mean that the timing is no reflection on the quality of the applicant. I'm sure this is answered elsewhere but figured I could also get a quick response...

From what admissions says, it does not matter. Would be interested to get numbers on acceptance rates per wave though. Congrats on those who have been invited!

And the waiting will continue for at least another week for the rest of us- trying to stay cool and keep confident 8-)

No invite for me today either. I'm a little pessimistic about Wharton to begin with, but it looks like the anxiety extends for at least another week haha!

So all of today's invites went out already or are they going out in waves?

It's a myth. People who think international invitations go out first based the reason that it gives applicants more time to make travel arrangements. It makes sense, but this view has never been backed by the Adcom.


Yeah, mostly true. I am an international and LAST YEAR I got my Wharton interview invitation on the last day of the cycle. I was one of the ten-twelve international students whom I met at Wharton last year. We were getting interviewed on perhaps last day of the interviewing period. So, atleast 10-12 international students did receive an interview invite towards the end of the notification cycle.
Although, I am a little apprehensive of such a thing happening this year because of the change in interview pattern.

My understanding is that invites are sent only once during any particular day. I think all the invites for today have been sent.

Thanks for your response ! If possible, could you please let me know what dates are reserved for interviews in Mumbai and New Delhi ? I am a little concerned because of this group-discussion thing.

Hi experts/admission consultants/applicants,

I need your advice regarding an important issue.I converted my GPA through (WES)World Education Services (3.54/4.00).My GPA on a 10.0 scale is 6.68 but since the grading system at my institute(comparable to IIT's - top10)is tough I don't know what the Adcoms will make of my 6.68 GPA.Also,not many people from my college apply to B-schools so I have no idea how adcoms will normalize my scores. I even submitted an alternative transcript from mbamath.com scoring 100/100 marks in 24 quizzes.My GMAT score is Q51,V41.

I didn't know that most of the schools were AccessWES clients,which means that they can see my verified transcripts and converted GPA online only without me having to send any transcripts from WES. I mailed to schools regarding this.

Columbia replied to the mail and added my GPA on a 4.0 scale.
Stanford replied to the mail stating that they won't make any addition to the application.(Frankly,this is not an addition,just my GPA on another scale to help the adcoms normalize my scores)
Wharton replied to the mail stating that they will ask the operations team to look at my WES 4.0 GPA but I don't have nay follow-up whether they have taken my 4.0 GPA into account.
My application data in 2 data forms was not updated in HBS Application form.I sent a mail to HBS on 7th itself(R2 deadline) but didn't get any reply.I again sent a mail on 24th regarding the data in application form and 4.0 GPA issue but have not received any reply. Should I go ahead and phone the admissions office about the issue?They are issuing invites tomorrow so I thought they might be busy and will reply to my mail later.(but 22 days and no reply)

MIT Sloan also didn't replied to the mail.Should I wait for some days before reminding on mail again or should I phone the admissions office rightaway?

My question is :-Is it okay if I call up HBS,Wharton and MIT Sloan's office or is there any different strategy for the 3 schools. I thought it was polite to just write a mail and wait for their response but geting no response at all takes me to the nail-bitting mode :(

I greatly appreciate your help and time in advance.Solving this issue might help calm my nerves.Really stressed for the past week.

Your reply relieved me of growing-tension. Thanks a lot for such a quick reply ! I am happy that not getting invite today is not the end of the world for me because the interview dates are far away.

Really appreciate your prompt reply ! Surely a +1 from me :)

Thanks a lot.
I was worried if Stanford or other admission offices see this in a bad light.

I suggest you call the schools, this is an offbeat discussion which may not get full justice over email. Make sure you are clear what you are requesting when you talk to them on the phone - "You did not put the GPA generated by WES since ....".
Most of the adcoms are very helpful, and if they are busy they will either not pickup the phone or ask you to call later.

I suggest calling Stanford too, since there is confusion between them thinking you are giving them new information v/s updating information. They may end up giving you the same reply, but its worth calling.

At the same time, keep a soft copy of the WES report ready, so you can email them during or immediately after the call.

Hope this helps ....
