Wow, congrats! Does this mean that you will not be heading to Sloan?


Most likely. Financial aid is a huge, almost overriding, concern for me.

I would definitely understand not wanting to pass up a full ride to a top 3 school. Having lived in Philly, I can attest to the fact that the housing options are quite a bit cheaper than Boston too.

What are you looking to go into though?

FROM Wharton Admissions Blog: As one round closes another begins…
Image
Happy April! Spring has finally arrived here, in Philadelphia, and it’s so nice to see people outside enjoying the slightly warmer weather. Last week was an exciting time in the MBA Admissions Office, as we released Round 2 decisions on March 25th and officially closed the 2013-2014 application process with the Round 3 deadline on March 27th. Congrats to our Round 2 applicants who were accepted into the Class of 2016! We look forward to seeing many of you in mid-April for Spring Welcome Weekend!

As Round 3 continues, we look forward to getting to know more about each and every one of our applicants. We will only be releasing invitations to interview on Tuesday, April 15th and will be holding on-campus interviews during the week of April 21st. Please read here to learn more about the Team-Based Discussion and what to expect during the interview part of the process.

We wish everyone the best of luck as you move forward in the process and please feel free to contact the MBA Admissions Office directly with any questions that may arise.

Wharton Spotlight: Cotopaxi Social Impact Venture [#permalink] New post 07 Apr 2014, 06:00
FROM Wharton Admissions Blog: Wharton Spotlight: Cotopaxi Social Impact Venture
Wharton alum Davis Smith (WG’11, G’11) and his wife Asialene started their outdoor gear company, Cotopaxi, with a simple goal – to make gear for good. With more than a billion people living in extreme poverty, Cotopaxi, has a social mission rooted in the personal experiences of its founders. This social impact venture began on a trek to Peru where the couple met Edgar, a little boy on the street who insisted on shining Davis’ shoes. Their immediate connection with Edgar spawned the concept of their company with the premise of improving the human condition through producing a great product.

Cotopaxi boasts two key differences between them and other outdoor companies. First, they are direct-to-consumer by making their own gear and selling straight to their customers and secondly, each piece of their gear is tied to a humanitarian cause.  Stocking up for an outdoor adventure never felt so good, here is their story:

I wonder how many people applied round 3? (Crossing fingers for people who are on the waitlist).

Looks like there are about 670 people on the Facebook page. I realize this is just spinning the wheels but, heh, have to pass the time somehow!

You only need to pay the fees and start the process before the deadline. I'm a R1 admit and have not completed the verification process yet because I asked for a delay on the employment verification.

@ MBAUnderDOG @chromium73 thanks for the info. Hope to see u all in august then ^^. The deadline on the checklist seriously threw me off... but now that I think abt it it doesn't really make sense. I wisb Re Vera can be faster though. By the way.. does it means enrollment is not official until Re Vera is done with whatever they need to do? 3mnths frm r2 deadline is alr August =_=

Waitlisted candidate here.

Nervousness sets in! I just logged into my application portal and noticed that the earlier waitlist letter is no longer available. I guess they will update the system with the updated decision in a few hours.

Any body notice any other changes (eg. https://upenngsb.askadmissions.net/vip/Default.aspx)? I recall that R2 accepted folks had a checklist pop up on that page prior to decisions being made.
