Hey all,

I just had my interview on-campus in Philadelphia yesterday, and wanted to give you some insight. I was pretty nervous going into the interview despite researching the heck out of it and preparing as best as I could. BUT- the moment the actual interview starts, it's really quite straightforward. So, my advice is - just breathe. If you've ever had any level of experience working in a team in a professional environment, this will be straightforward for you.

We were taken into a small meeting room with one table (where interviewees sat) and some chairs along the back wall (where interviewers sat), and the interviewers just read from a script and told us the time was ours to manage and from there it was all up to us. Our team worked well together and everyone assumed their roles naturally. It was, dare I say, kind of fun. The interviewers watched and took notes the whole time, and I enjoyed the TBD, and as a team we felt we did well.
Afterwards, the interviewers called us out for 1-on-1s. They had a timer set for 10 minutes and that was as long as the 1-on-1 was.

All said and done, I enjoyed the TBD. I also especially liked that the day allowed for a lot of interaction with current and prospective students. This is Wharton, after all-- everyone I spoke to had a great story and truly amazing outlook.

Anyway, just my two cents. Take a deep breath, and good luck! The next month of waiting is killer.

Thanks for writing this!
I’m getting ready for mine next week. How much prep/research did you do? (Did you bring detailed plans etc?)

Thanks all who attended the interview webinar. Here's the recording and Q&A that took place during the webinar in YouTube chat.

Q: How much in depth should we be planning for the retreat? What kind of budget should we assume? (It's very open-ended, which I assume is part of the point!)

ApplicantLab: (1/3) I think you should be ready with ideas on how to spend the time, but don't go completely crazy -- after all, the conversation will probably go in a different direction than what you expect... (2/3)...so I worry that if someone walks in with a totally memorized minute-by-minute plan, I worry that person will be inflexible and unable to go with the flow with however the discussion goes... (3/3) after all, there's only a 20% chance your idea will be chosen ? Re: budget, I'd say use your best judgment. I wouldn't stress about it necessarily, but I also wouldn't propose caviar/champagne.


Q: How to define a good memorable learning objectives?

ApplicantLab: (1/2) My advice here is to think about what is the point of the retreat? Ask yourself what the goal/result of a "good" retreat is... then ask yourself, "What is something measurable I can set... (2/2)...as the 'goal' or 'objective' here?"

Hi everybody,

First of, I wish you best luck in your application process. I'd like to learn whether having the TBD (in the campus/off the campus) is mandatory? I plan to apply in Round 3, but if I have to travel to another country, then it won't seem reasonable to me.
Thanks

Yes, the team based discussion is mandatory for all applicants who are invited to interview, but it doesn't have to be in person. I knew some people in Round 2 who had an online TBD. I'm not sure which service was used for those interviews, but I imagine it felt like a group Skype call with 5 fellow applicants plus the 2 interviewers.

Does anyone know if Wharton calls accepted applicants on the day prior to the formal decision release date (similar to Booth)?

From Livewire, looks like they call on the same day, but I could be wrong!

I was admitted R1 and was called in the morning the day before the published release date. Think that’s the norm.

I was also accepted R1 and got call day of around 8am pacific time. I remember seeing a few others on west coast who received calls 6am pacific but I think it’s totally dependent on who is assigned to call you!
