For all Indian applicants

10 of the 15 slots for Mumbai are full (5 are still accepting registrations). So hopefully there are still some invites to go out.

Best of luck guys! Hope to see you there.

For those who got invites or applied Round 1, is it true the only US off-campus location is San Francisco? If you aren't based in the West Coast you have to travel to Philly?

Yes the only US location outside Philly is San Francisco. Since they have the TBD, it's hard to do traditional off campus interviews such as those with alumni in your area.

There have been 3 waves of invitation, and I haven't been lucky enough to receive any yet.

Do I have less possibility of getting accepted, even if I get the 4th. or 5th. invitation??


Short answer no. Believe them when they say they send out invites in no particular order (except maybe international first). I was invited on the last wave and was able to get in. Don't lose hope! There are still many interview spots!

New theory: first two waves of invites were mostly international, next 2 waves domestic, and feb 25 will mostly be rejections with a couple remaining invites.

The only Philly spots left now are on the 19, 20 and 21 which puts those people who received the invite yesterday at a definite disadvantage in terms of travel. Any chance they release a couple more dates?


Certainly hope so because I am expecting an invite on the 18th !

Just received from Wharton....

Dear XXXXX,

Are you wondering how you are going to finance your MBA?...

My reply....

Dear Wharton,

No. I'm wondering more about whether I'll get invited to interview (and ultimately, have an MBA to finance)...

For those asked above, London 4 sessions r still open for registration, singapore 8. Seems like they either added spaces for singapore ones or people dropped out. Coz last week I only saw 4 sessions opened in Singapore.
Good luck everyone. Hope this helps

Hi I received my interview invitation followed by a confirmation email. In the confirmation email, there's a group discussion question. I am wondering whether this is THE question we are going to have on the interview day? Or is it just a sample one?

Thank you!

It is THE question on interview day. Prepare for the question, but don't spend too much time on it.

For India applicants not from Mumbai this might be the end of the road. I think last wave of India invites will go to only Mumbai applicants. Has anyone from Mumbai received invite yet or are majority of applicants are from outside Mumbai who have received the invite

I am from Delhi and yes I have too much time to kill today.
