From what I have read and heard, they release the results only exactly on the decision date with calls going out in the morning followed by email / status update on our profiles.

Not sure why I'm writing this since it'll probably just end up causing more stress.

Anyone get responses to your followup thank you emails?

I didn't and I wouldn't overthink it. The people reviewing are doing 10s of people each day for the past couple weeks. I would say it's probably more of an indication of someone's style versus their opinion of your performance.

I heard back from both of my observers, but realistically think that they were being nice and/or professional.

You sent a thank you to both observers? I only did for my one-on-one interviewee. Did you get your other observer's business card as well?

Don't panic if your interviewer didn't reply to your thank you note. It is more of a personal style than how he/she thinks of your interview performance. My interviewer pretty much "asked" me NOT to send her Thank You Email as she said she never checked them and didn't see the point of having to do so.

Don't panic if you only sent thank you note to your one on one interviewer either. This is more than enough as he/she is the only one evaluating you. The other interviewer won't even have your evaluation form.

Are we supposed to write thank you emails to our observers! I have the business card of both of them but it never crossed my mind to write them thank you emails. Am I being too mean here :O

This is likely just a pet peeve of mine but I don't understand the focus on sending thank you emails. I suppose if they were really engaging it might be a small plus, but I feel like if I was an interviewer I would view them as an inconvenience more than anything, given everyone's busy schedules. I would find it really hard to believe that a thank you or lack of thank you has any bearing on the outcome of an admit/deny/waitlist decision.

Just had my TBD today and overall it went amazing! Due to the extreme weather our 3:30PM got moved moved to 1:30PM, which worked out for everyone in our small group since we were there early and all excited to get started. Our group was very collaborative and each person had something interesting to add. We were able to incorporate all of our ideas into one really interesting idea and had a very clear set of deliverable and each person presented a section of our proposal. We finished exactly within our allotted time. With that said, three of us from our group also interviewed at HBS and overall really clicked before we even went into our small group discussion. Looking forward to the next two years!

Does anybody have an idea how the observers report back to the Adcom and on what all criteria? How big a role this TBD and one-on-one interview plays in the whole process?

Like that old Pennsylvania saying, March definitely came roaring in like a lion. With extra cold temperatures and plenty of snow, the Wharton community is very excited that Spring Break has arrived. More importantly, we are quickly wrapping up our Round 2 Team-Based Discussions, both on campus and abroad, and we have thoroughly enjoyed every one of them. Thank you all for traveling to meet us, near or far, as it was such a pleasure getting to know each of you in person. As we’re sure all of you know, final Round 2 decisions will be going out on Tuesday, March 24th.

Spring Break also means that we will be pausing our campus visit program. There will be no class visits, tours, or information sessions available next week, but we will resume the formal visit activities on Monday, March 16th.

Lastly, for those of you applying in Round 3, please remember that our deadline to submit applications is Thursday, March 26th at 5:00 PM (EST). Should you have any questions, please feel free to join us for next week’s webinar or contact the MBA Admissions Office directly at 215-898-6183 or mba-admiss@wharton.upenn.edu.

4 Tips for Team Interviews  [#permalink]

Show Tags

New post 08 Mar 2015, 11:32

Since so much of b-school life and learning includes team discussions, the adcom needed a tool for assessing how applicants will fit in the team-based discussion culture of their programs. Thus, the Team-Based Discussion (TBD) was born.

In team-based interviews, applicants need to use a different set of skills than they use during traditional, individual interviews. Personal interviews require one-on-one presentation, interpersonal skills, and self-awareness, while team interviews require critical thinking, listening, persuasion, and leadership.

Here are four to-do’s to help you win an Academy Award for your performance in an interview:
1. Review school material. This includes the specific materials that the school provides prior to the interview, as well as all other material about the program. As with an individual interview, you need to know the school well – its mission, curriculum, teaching style, etc. Review the school’s website and speak with current students and recent grads so you get a clear picture of what it’s like to be a student at B-School X.

2. Read Case in Point. This is an excellent book by Marc Consentino that will teach you how to state your position during team-based interviews, and then clearly and succinctly support your position.

3. Role-play. Use family, friends, colleagues, and consultants at Accepted.com to role-play with you. The more in-the-know your mock interviewer and peers are, the better idea you’ll get of how the interview will run on the big day.

4. Take notes. You are allowed to bring notes to the interview, and while you don’t want to read off a piece of paper or even refer to it frequently, it may help you feel more confident knowing that some of your key points are written down in case you need them. You never know how performance anxiety may set in, and if your brain freezes and you completely forget your plan, you’ll be glad you jotted some ideas down beforehand.

TIP: Don’t bring a 400-page stack of papers! You don’t want to spend the whole time shuffling through your notes, making noise and ignoring your co-interviewees while they speak. Paperless notes on a tablet may reduce the shuffle, but they won’t reduce the distraction – keep paperless notes to a minimum as well.
