As long as you use "ish" it's okay:) Closer to four weeks, but I like the excitement!

Hey all! Anybody else with checklist still saying: "Materials Needed"; when all the individual items are uploaded?

This means that the committee hasn't reviewed my app yet. I tried to email the admission office as well but got no response yet.

Just wanted to know if I am alone in the boat or anybody else has the same problem!

Reach out to them again or call up the admission office.

This is highly unlikely for the Wharton team to not respond back. I wrote them about a query and got an instant response via mail.

Less than one week! As I'm sure you all know, Wharton plans to send out Round 1 interview invitations on October 31 and once again, the school is using its team-based discussion format to evaluate MBA candidates, in place of a traditional business school admissions interview. Understandably, Wharton applicants get anxious about this atypical interview, because the approach creates a very different dynamic from what one usually encounters in a one-on-one meeting—and with other applicants also in the room, one cannot help but feel less in control of the content and direction of the conversation. Yet despite the uncertainty, here are a few things that interviewees can expect:

    -You will need to arrive at the interview with an idea—a response to a challenge that will be presented in your interview invitation.
    -Having the best idea is much less important than how you interact with others in the group and communicate your thoughts. So while you should prepare an idea ahead of time, that is only part of what you will be evaluated on.
    -Your peers will have prepared their ideas as well. Chances are that ideas will be raised that you know little or nothing about. Do not worry! The admissions committee members are not measuring your topical expertise. Instead, they want to see how you add to the collective output of the team.
    -After the team-based discussion, you will have a short one-on-one session with someone representing Wharton’s admissions team. More than likely, you will be asked to reflect on how the team-based discussion went for you; this will require self-awareness on your part.

To give candidates the opportunity to undergo a realistic test run before experiencing the actual event, we created our Wharton Team-Based Discussion Simulation. Via this simulation, applicants participate anonymously with three to five other MBA candidates in an online conversation, which is moderated by two of our experienced Senior Consultants familiar with Wharton’s format and approach. All participants then receive feedback on their performance, with special focus on their interpersonal skills and communication abilities. The simulation builds confidence by highlighting your role in a team, examining how you communicate your ideas to—and within—a group of (equally talented) peers, and discovering how you react when you are thrown “in the deep end” and have to swim. Our Wharton Team-Based Discussion Simulation allows you to test the experience so you are ready for the real thing!

To learn more or sign up for a session, visit our Wharton Team-Based Discussion Simulation page: https://shop.mbamission.com/products/wh ... simulation

Good luck everyone!
