Thanks!

If you say you usually bring a pen and paper to your usual strategy meetings, bring one here too. I thought and did the same. Turns out everyone in my group did too. I used it for notes during people's pitches and to also ask clarifying questions afterwards.

In the 1-on-1, I was basically asked 4 questions if I recall correctly - how do you think that went, is this how you normally behave in a group discussion, talk me through your resume (which for me included why MBA / why Wharton), do you have any questions for me?

Good luck! I'll keep my fingers crossed for you!

Don't stress, relax and indulge yourself into the joy of the TBD. Whether you make notes or not only makes a difference if it helps you to put down a few bullet points for further discussion. From personal experience, I was very pleasantly surprised several times at how friendly and humble Wharton candidates and admits are, and am very happy be admitted. The rumors of snobs and "prestige" usually come from jealous people or those dinged, and as far as I can tell from my observations, Wharton tries very hard in the last few years to depart from their Wall St stigma and to arrive at a friendly and socially-impactful image; this is also confirmed by my interactions with current and future students and recent alumni.

Too true. 35 minutes is nothing. I hope you get a call back before those 19 hours on decision day. Good luck!

Any time from early morning to probably 1-2 pm ET for R2. I was called at 10:15 ET by June but I applied to HCM.

Best of luck to all other candidates and hopefully we're greeted with good news on 11/2!

Trust me, you're not the only one. And I too, plan to apply to Wharton. But if you do everything you possible can to mitigate that and show that you're not GPA however many years ago I think you have a shot. For ex, take supplemental classes, build work experience. Extra curric's, even int'l experience. Build a story that narrates who you are and what you're passionate about, while including how their MBA will be beneficial to you.

Good luck! :) (we'll need it! Lol)

Best of luck! Usually your interviewer is the one who calls if you get in, before you get the official email. Calling time really depends on your time zone. I'm based in Dubai and got the call around 11am-noon Philly time, 7pm for me.

Thanks and many congratulations on getting in! IMO the best way to give back to community would be to write a detailed BSchool application debrief along with tips/advice for future applicants. We have a separate forum to post BShool debriefs. I look forward to read your MBA debrief soon... https://gmatclub.com/forum/share-your-a ... ience-332/

Hey guys! Can I your opinion regarding my profile? I wish to apply Wharton in the future but I am a bit nervous about my GPA.

I have 2.5 GPA, GMAT 710, 4 years of working at a multinational company (1.5 year of leading a team). I feel from looking at the graph that the GPA might pull me down. Any advise?
