Just 3 days left for decisions! Anyone getting anxious?


Do decisions typically get posted to the portal around noon? Are all calls expected to be completed by that time? I've seen some conflicting data online. Thanks!


In Round 1, decisions were posted to the portal at around 5 or 6 pm EST. If you are admitted, you should receive a phone call and email before the formal decision letter is posted. Hope that helps.

Was looking at last year's thread to understand decision timeline. Here's a list of locations in order of calls reported...

First call was reported on forum from Korea at 6:30am Eastern Time followed by NYC (9:11am ET), Argentina (10 am ET), Ireland (10:14am ET), Seattle (10:36am ET), Chicago (10:43am ET), NYC, Seattle, CA, and Chicago.

Waitlist decisions started coming out from 1:43pm ET onwards

Hope that helps! Keep eye on Decision Tracker for live updates.. https://gmatclub.com/forum/wharton-188/app-tracker.html

Hi Guys,

1. Does Wharton call all accepted applicants? or only a part of them?
2. Until what time on March 30 will the final decisions go out?

Thanks guys,

Howdy y'all. Was fortunate enough to advance to R3 interviews. Does anyone have any tips on the TBD or 1-on-1? Congrats to all who have advanced thus far.

Be honest. My TBD threw me off since my entire group wasn't exactly "type A" but rather everyone gravitated towards the idea that had social impact in it that wasn't very developed tbh. I tried to steer the conversation a couple of times to explore other people's ideas but it was fruitless given how "good" and teamworky the group was trying to be. Of course, I acknowledged good ideas and etc during the discussion still. I also kept time. In my 1-on-1, I did compliment something I thought each person did nicely, then I went on to say how social impact could be an idea that's incorporated into anyone else's ideas so I would've liked to have had a more inclusive discussion w/others' ideas. I said it was not an accurate representation of how I act in a group because I really do try to make sure that everyone feels heard, and it's important to really ensure you have details of a venture down instead of just going for something because "everyone cares about social impact."

I was expecting to go against people who would really push for their ideas but I really did not expect a group of people who would acquiesce to everything. I've honestly never seen anything like it in any of the "real life" group discussions I've had.

Anyway it's a single data point from my experience. From what I hear, this situation is probably not all that common. Got in with $.

From the MBA Facebook group, it looks like 3/6 from my discussion made the cut.

Hope that helps. Best of luck.

Thank you for the long reply and the great details! Also, huge congrats on the acceptance with the $, that's a huge feat! I hadn't even considered that everyone would gravitate away from Type A entirely. It makes sense though since I'm assuming the main goal everyone had was to prove they could play well with others.

Is it acceptable to bring / take notes during the discussion? Or is it more of a no pen and paper type exercise. I find that generally in strategy type meetings I end up taking notes to try and connect themes...also would be good to help jot down the feedback I have for each of the other group members.

With respect to the 1-on-1, did any of the more "normal" MBA interview questions come up? It seems like it's highly improbably they would with only 10 mins for the 1-on-1 and some of the questions of course being focused on a debrief.

Thanks again for the help, and if you end up choosing Wharton, hopefully I'll get in as well and have a chance to meet you in Philly in August!
