to those still waiting for invites - last year someone on gmatclub went through the previous few years invites and there was no correlation between invite date and acceptance so don't lose faith!

Is there an intermediate status between 'Submitted' and 'Accepted/Denied'?

given the avg gmat scores of both places, some (the vast majority of) people must be getting in with lower than 99th percentile scores

Do you know if this year it will be posible to interview at the London Campus?

The option 'on-campus' is limited to Chicago, do you have to select Off-campus/London to be interviewed there?

No invites so far.. Is it because of low GMAT (700) or is it because I didnt submit an application at all, in R1? I think its the first case. I guess, they smelled my low gmat. :P

Looks like they are sending invites to those having at least 740, except one who has 710.
Congrats to those who got the invite and best of luck to others.. Hopefully I will apply in R2 ;)

Do we have any international applicant with an invite....just trying to figure out if there's any method to the madness.

is it just me or do the invitees have crazy high gmat scores lol


I think both Booth and Wharton are well-known for valuing high stats (GPA/GMAT) more-so than other school (ie. Kellogg), so not super surprising.


There might be something to this, but Kellogg's probably the wrong comparison. Kellogg's an "interview everybody" school, so it's impossible to say at this stage what it is they really value in a candidate. (Given the huge jump in average GMAT at Kellogg last year, one could infer that they now care about scores just as much as any of their peers.)

YAY!!!! I just saw my IV invite on the application page. I still don't have an email or a way to actually sign up for an interview. . . . but I'm too busy jumping up and down anyway. :-D

Invite received about an hour ago. I do agree that there is little method to the timing. Backgrounds and scores seem varied.

Congrats to all those who also received invites, and to the many more that will undoubtedly get them this week!
