now, we need to make sure to not read too much into this single date. The website does say that the invites will be sent out on 3rd Nov but they might send out dings/WL sometime later.

yep - reapp here. for those wondering, i believe last year, both invites and dings were on the same day. Dings just later in the day, I believe.

Any re-applicants on here? I did the TBD last year after applying R2, but sadly wasn't offered a spot in the Class of 2017. I pulled together what I think is a much more solid application for R1 this year. Happy to offer advice when TBDs come around--fingers crossed I make it that far!


Did you prepare for the TBD on your own or did you happen to enrol yourself with one of the admission consulting companies? Any particular resources/tips for the TBD?



I self-prepared last year and practiced with some current students. The general advice is to try to stay calm and just pretend you're in a regular work meeting. Be mindful of time limits and avoid the extremes of either a) dominating the discussion, or b) not participating. Many current students I talked to said their entire TBD group (or close to it) got in, so don't think of the folks in your group as competition, approach the situation like you're working together to collectively get in. The time goes by really fast, so the biggest thing is moving the group forward and finishing on time. That means there's no time for disagreement, try to compromise quickly and propose alternative solutions if you disagree with someone's idea. Similarly, the 10-minute one-on-one interview that follows goes by extremely fast, so its better to keep it short and specific. Remember these are all conducted by 2nd year students, so they're just human beings--try to put yourself in their shoes and think about what you would look for. It's really a great opportunity to interact with current students and your potential peers for a glimpse of what the classroom experience might be like. So really, you want to authentically fit in.

My own two cents is that the TBD really isn't a make-or-break. I stayed in touch with some folks from my group and we had an email chain going when decisions went out. One that got accepted made a couple blatant no-nos during the discussion and the other was a model interviewee. I'm pretty self-critical and don't think I did anything wrong, I think I got dinged because my application overall lacked specificity (in my essays and recs) and needed to more explicitly demonstrate fit.

Honestly, I think the whole TBD experience was what moved Wharton from my #4 choice to my #1. It's truly a great opportunity to gage how well you're going to enjoy the next 2 years.

Reapplicant here. Got an interview last year and didn't make the final cut.

Invites happened about 10-10:30 AM Eastern. Let me know if you have any other questions.

I got an email that also said: On November 3rd, the Committee will also release all final admissions decisions to candidates that are not being invited for an interview and therefore no longer being considered for admission.

You gotta love the Wharton process. On all other threads, applicants like you and me are worried sick and spend 25 hours a day speculating (myself included). But not when it comes to Wharton. Just one day and it's all going to be equally clear to those fortunate ones who get in and those who don't.


More schools should be like this.

Actually, someone wrote that they have a separate date for dings. I think Nov 3, so that's the day when you don't want to get an email.

No, Nov. 3rd is when they release interview invites so you definitely want to get an email that day.

Since majority of the scholarships are merit based, what are the chances of securing one if your GMAT score is below average? Not much below average but below average nonetheless.

It depends on the entirety of your profile, not just GMAT score. Higher GMAT obviously helps a lot but college marks and everything else also factors in (including straight-up demographics). It's more of how much do they want you, based on what you can add to their class.

As the interview invites will be sent on 3rd Nov, your vacation period seems to lie in that sweet spot for interviews. As per the email that I received after I submitted my R1 application stated:

"The Admissions Committee will release interview invitations on Tuesday, November 3, 2015 by 5:00 pm Eastern Standard Time. On November 3rd, the Committee will also release all final admissions decisions to candidates that are not being invited for an interview and therefore no longer being considered for admission.

If you are invited for an interview, you will need to complete your interview by Friday, November 20th. Interviews will be available on-campus with second-year Wharton MBA Admissions Fellows and off-campus in various locations around the world by Admissions staff members. These locations will be announced in the coming weeks and all interview options are considered equally within the admission process.

Candidates who are offered an interview will receive their final admissions decision by 5:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time on Tuesday, December 17th. "

In the e-mail they've sent after submission, they say that all the interviews should be completed by November 20th.

Don't know where the closest interview spots will be, but if I'm invited I am ready to fly to any of the following locations: Istanbul (or any other city in Turkey), Dubai, Moscow (or several other cities in Russia), any city in Kazakhstan (though I don't think there will be any options in Kazakhstan), Delhi, Mumbai (if I have time to get visa to India).

Istanbul and Dubai are the top choices for me. :)

I'll fly down to philly to Wharton campus as its a couple of hours by flight. This way I'll be able to meet the adcoms and have the TBD conducted at the same place.
