Got an invitation from Wharton yesterday to come to a reception in San Francisco only for those invited to interview. Any other interviewees get one of these? Are they doing it in other cities as well? Good luck all!


Received one for Sao Paulo hub.

Anyone else going to Sao Paulo?


Going to Sao Paulo. However, I wont be able to go to the reception. I hope it doesnt hurt.

Wharton's site seems to be not responding again. I guess expectations were building up for Friday for the next wave :-).

None reported. From last year's thread there was one wave on Monday of the first week. The next wave was a week later. Therefore it is possible that there will be more interview invites this coming Monday.

This year 's first wave of R1 was last Wed so it is possible next wave will be next Wed if they follow last years' pattern.
But at least 8-9 people got the invites in my country so I am really losing hope now.

Don't......I think people from everywhere have received invites........I remember US, South Asia, South East Asia, South America, Australia/New Zealand.....there might be others also that I do not remember....so I don't think the invites were distributed to particular geographies.....could have just been random or in some other order

For everyone else just waiting, and waiting, and waiting for the 350th comment to appear...

No, I don't have any news.

But I am checking the site every 30 min or so...

Are we expecting a wave today?

I think its reasonable to expect another wave today since its been a week since the last wave. Based on the last wave, invites might come out around 5 pm EST

Just got an invite (11:40 am PT).

Is there an advantage/disadvantage to doing the TBD off-campus (in San Francisco, specifically)? I'll be on campus in early November, but they don't start the TBD interviews until November 12th...
