I got the impression that Wharton is not going to do the Team-based discussion anymore. Maybe they are going to do only interviews. In yesterday's email Wharton didn't mention anything about team based discussions! What do yo u guys think?


FYI, I actually attended the Women Visit Day event yesterday, and when asked about the interview, the admission officer talked about the team based interview and didn't mention anything about changing it back to one-on-one.

Put that way, it sounds like a lot of waiting. Do they send invite in a one-week or two-weeks window?

Visited Wharton today. Here is my brief description of the visit:

1. class: It was boring. Most people are on their phones or laptop doing random things. One of the students said they do have 50% classes that are case based. Darden class was relatively very interesting due to lively case discussion. That said, I am not applying to b-school for a class.

2. Campus & Location: Campus is beautiful! Looks like students (especially aiming at IB/wall street) do make frequent trips to NYC - 2 hr ride. All students live in 2x2 block area in rittenhouse square area. This area is expensive (my opinion) but all of them live there. 25 min walk or quick cab ride. One tour guide quipped that most students take cab. I also learned that Wharton bought space on 2401 walnut for students (kind of lounge w/ vending machines). Its mid way between campus and rittenhouse area. Thats good because one of the students said they only come to campus may be 4-5 times a week. Definitely not on weekends. Most of the recruiting (PE/VC/Fin/consulting/IB) happens in downtown four seasons. So from rittenhouse downtown is quick cab ride.

3. Recruiting: Every student I met was confident that they can get the job they want. Mature recruiting (consulting/IB) happens in Oct to Jan. Apparently no company is allowed on campus before term 1 which is ending this week. Lot of people seems to have utilized alumni in their job search with positive results.

Shoot if you have any questions and I will try to answer.

How did you find the brains of the students you met? Especially international ones? Smart?
What was your class about? Maybe a boring topic
What were some of the firms students were recruiting for? Any interesting conversations with people you met

Thanks man

Cheers

Quick question stemming from paranoia probably. "Unofficial/Self-Reported Transcripts" are unsigned college transcripts without the college seal right?

They are smart. You can certainly have an intelligent discussion on any topic. I met a doctor from India and an army officer from Israel (among few others from traditional background). Doctor is aiming for consulting and Israeli is working on his start up. Both were down to earth and were honest in their responses. But the few from banking were not so friendly and arrogant. I think in general TBD is weeding out smart a**holes so we may see a shift in overall attitude of school in the coming years.

I sat in two classes: Services Operations (topic was Harrah's revenue model) and Financing early stage healthcare companies. My comment about class is relative to Darden class. There was tons of finance and banking guys in each class. Especially in healthcare class only finance/VC guys were talking while others were disengaged (one girl was sleeping too). Class environment is the last criteria for me to choose a school to apply to.

Coming to recruiting, all firms you can think of for consulting and IB. No interesting conversations about the what they are going to do except that Israeli guy working on his start up. I chatted with him a little bit to understand what kind of resources and support he is getting from school and alumni. He is certainly meeting few VCs from bay area who were alumni. So thats a huge plus to have that kind of access to VCs.

Thanks

Seemed to me after reading the initial e-mail that everything would be forthcoming on the 31st. Either you get the interview invite with detailed instructions on location, scheduling, etc., or you get waitlisted or "released." Mark your calendars ladies and gentlemen...

I was at wharton last week of Sept for a class visit. I attended this information session where a member from the adcom told the gathering that there will be a team based interview followed by a ten min one-on-one discussion with the interviewer/panel . He did not call this discussion a " second interview" but a mere follow-up dialogue to answer any questions candidates may have for the adcom. They may also use this discussion to provide the candidate with an opportunity to describe how they felt about the team based interview or anything that they wanted to say but could not during the interview . Basically on lines of the HBS post interview essay. Having said that , I wouldn't quote me on this until y'all see anyofficial communication.
Just sharing what I know, :)

For those applying to Lauder... Does anyone know how long it takes to get the OPI results back? And how do you view them? Took my test today and really have no bearing for how well I did.
