I spoke to a friend of mine at Wharton, he said the moderators are involved in this part of the discussion and will cut you off if you ramble... there's no stopwatch or anything.

For the 1 on 1 portion of the interview, if I am interviewing on campus, will the adcom have access to my full application or just to my resume?

No, he wont. The 1-1 interview will be blind and very short. Your interviewer will be one of the guys who also evaluates your TBD.

Anyone have a sense for what's typically discussed in the 1-1 interview? I'm surprised the interviewer wouldn't have read your whole application!

From what I've read online, it seems like a quick (10-15 mins) follow-up to the TBD plus a brief behavioral segment. Here's a good excerpt from Clearadmit (http://blog.clearadmit.com/category/int ... l/wharton/):

"Then we had to wait until we were called for our 1-on-1s. Here, the interview was really very open. I was told that I could talk about whatever I want, for example my impression of the interview, any new developments since I submitted my application, or any questions that I had for her. I then chose to go exactly with this order, i.e. I first explained what I liked about the interview and what I wished had gone a bit better, then a brief update on any career developments, and then I even had a brief moment to ask her two questions."

I think the interviewers go in blind on the 1-on-1 to both simplify things logistically and minimize bias prior to the TBD since they're also grading you on that.

 FROM Wharton Admissions Blog: Beyond the Classroom One question that I often get when meeting prospective students is why one would choose Wharton over another program. What, in my opinion, makes Wharton special? What makes our program stand out?  For me, this is one of the most difficult and easiest questions to answer. Difficult because the program I know best is Wharton. Easy because the answer that always comes to mind is the same. It is our community and the people of which it is comprised.My role in Admissions allows me the good fortune of being introduced to that community at every stage – from candidate to admit to student and finally as an alumni. We first introduce prospective candidates to this environment through our various presentations, industry panels, coffee chats and receptions. This past spring and summer, our global community engagement was evidenced from South Korea to South Africa, from Poland to Peru – showcasing the wide range of industries and areas that our students and alumni represent.The Team-Based Reception is another wonderful opportunity for candidates, who interview off-campus,  to enjoy interaction with alumni, staff and their future classmates in a casual environment. While the reception is not part of the interview process itself, it does allow candidates to get further exposure to the Wharton community and to gain a fuller sense of how they may fit into that mix.�Admitted students are then welcomed into the community in a variety of ways – phone calls, happy hours, welcome receptions. Our campus visit program also becomes a useful tool in terms of gaining a better sense of the on-campus and Philadelphia communities as well as the overall energy that encompasses the Wharton campus.As we all are aware, there are many great MBA programs out there. One of the key differences is in a program’s students, its alumni and in its overall community. So I encourage all of you to talk with current students and alumni, to attend an event and to come to campus, if possible. These interactions will help determine if Wharton is some place you could see yourself flourishing in for 2 years and, more importantly, is a network and community in which you can see yourself being a part of far beyond that.Claire BrunoSr. Associate Director, MBA Admissions & Financial Aid The post Beyond the Classroom appeared first on Engage with Us.

Congratulations to those who have received an invitation to a Wharton interview.
We recently posted an article with a few tips to prepare for the team based discussion.

I hope this is helpful.

I third the above!

Also, if any willing HCM applicants could shed some light on what the 1:1 discussion with June Kinney was like, I would be very grateful!
