I got a $50k fellowship - is that a common thing at Wharton?


I can't speak to the frequency with which they award fellowships, but I can say I didn't receive one. Congrats though!! That's so awesome! They must really like you :)

It just seems like 30+ is automatic rejection. I am in the same boat (33 years old). Got ding from CBS, HBS, and Wharton.



This is awesome news. I got the ding but am happy to see that someone from the 30+ group is seeing some light at the end of the tunnel. Gives me some hope and a reason to reapply (I am 33).

I wish you all the best and hope that you manage to change the B-school perspective that 30+ are "old bread".


I just wanted to give an update: I was accepted to Wharton!

My profile: age 34 (will be 35 at time of matriculation); West Coast; non-traditional background (corporate lawyer). I was dinged by HBS and GSB with no interview, but accepted to Wharton (with a healthy fellowship!). I can't explain it except that my essays for Stanford and Harvard were personal, and my essay for Wharton was very career-oriented. I guess this continues the traditional wisdom that if you are an older applicant, you need to have a very focused career path and a strong explanation for why you NEED an MBA at this time (and, addressing the subtext, why a full-time MBA makes more sense for you than a part-time MBA).

Good luck to everyone out there, and if you are 30+, don't lose hope!

I think we have very similar profiles (34, lawyer), except that I was waitlisted and you were accepted with fellowship :wink: . Congrats CrucialTaunt! I am (and believe many other 30+ people here are) very happy for you.

I agree with you that the essay can make or break your chance of admission, and it is even more so in our cases. Your two points on focused career path and strong explanation for why the MBA now are right on. What is your post-MBA goal and how did you link this goal to the MBA at Wharton in your essay, if I may ask?

I guess you will matriculate to Wharton. If so, I wish you a fantastic 2 year journey there. Cheers!

You can refer to the post calling-all-wharton-applicants-2016-intake-class-of-200055-600.html#p1642703 for a list of links for TBD/PI.

Good luck for the TBD/PI. Let us know how it goes.

Does Wharton usually call admitted students the day of or day before the official decision date?

For R1/R2, the calls are made on the day of the decisions and not before. Do note that the calls for R1/R2, started from 7 AM Eastern on the decision day.
