I would've gone with their format, but added these 0 paying jobs. I added 1 of my 0-paid summer internship.

First, I did a bunch of summer internships in college (all full time, almost none paid). Is it a good idea to use WHarton's additional work experience section to talk about those in detail?
Second, in the additional work ex and education sections, the app recommends using the provided format. Is this a very strict rule? Is it ok to deviate a bit and add some narrative?
Any help from those who've submitted would be highly appreciated!

As I understand, I should add only what I have some proof for, for the background check. :/ Otherwise, I had some more internships I could've added, but I didn't keep the proofs safely :(


Ah got it, makes sense. Thanks Brio!

You can go with either. I had an internal switch of teams within same dept, and I mentioned that on HBS application, but not on few other applications; based on ease of mentioning the details on their app forms.
Reasons for leaving can always have "was reassigned based on company restructuring". I don't think reasons for leaving is a concern.

I have a unique situation regarding my employer history and need your suggestions. I work at an investment bank (say XYZ Bank)for last 5+ yrs. 3yrs back I had an intra-company transfer within the same office location (infact same office floor) from one division to another (It also led to change in entity say, XYZ India services Ltd. to XYZ Structured services Ltd.). In such a case do you advise I list two different employers within the application form or is it safe to simply say 'XYZ Bank' and employed for last 5+yrs. In the event I mention 2 different employers I also need to mention reason of leaving, which am not so sure what to mention as it was simply a merging of two roles (and not an opted switch).

Don't know about background check though


I would put it down as one employer - helps to show that you've been committed to one industry/position for some time too.

Anyone else wonder why the Wharton app has so much space to explain "reasons for leaving"? I have so much space left there and keep wondering if there is more info they want that I'm not providing!

For anyone interested, I just spoke with the Admissions Office regarding late recommendation letters. They said if the rec is submitted really within 24 hours after the application deadline, then the application will still be counted as Round 2.

Are you international or based in North America? Try an additional card or if nothing works, shoot an email to the admissions at Wharton (mba-admiss@wharton.upenn.edu) or better call them at +1.215.898.6183

Hi all,

Has anyone here also applied to the Lauder program? I totally screwed up on the OPI. I thought we need to provide scores in our native language irrespective of the regional concentration we apply to! And my native language does not apply to the region I'm interested in....any suggestions on what to do? Any way I can change my focus to global rather than one region?

Thanks in advance!

Hi, I'm a Lauder applicant. I would recommend contacting Lauder by phone directly. I believe you need fluency in 3 languages to apply for the global track

There’s a cute little hashtag –  #mywharton – that’s used to memorialize incredible travels, huge parties, ridiculous purchases, and all of those other somewhat surreal moments that signal the business school, YOLO mentality.  What can be lost in this presentation, though, is the distinction of the Wharton experience. When paired…Read More
