OK Guys,

I was there this past weekend and number of people coming for class visits, tells me that it is going to be quite competitive. My interview was straightforward and although on GMAT they didn't say much on my score , but its obvious that with all things equal , it's highly like that GMAT might end up being a differentiator in terms of who makes it in the end.

I had some good conversation with current student, attended class and went thru my interview. Although scheduled for an hour, but my interview only lasted 40 mins. Not much there - just simple conversations.

I am going to taken another stab at GMAT right before application deadline on 3rd. If I put in so much effort, I may as well push a bit on improving score in verbal as this can potentially pull me into 700 + range - a rather comforting situation

2 cents.

best of luck!

Sure! I have an under-represented international background working in private equity in the U.S. GMAT was 720, GPA didn't easily translate to a U.S. scale, but it was "good, not great".

Exceptionally positive interview and class visit experience. Folks were very conversational and focused on background, as well as some of the questions you would expect from normal course preparation (e.g. 1 "why MBA / why Wharton?", e.g. 2 "tell us about a time in which you faced a challenge").

I was thoroughly impressed with how seriously they took the EMBA program and the calibre of existing students, which is why I'll be accepting over other offers.

Dear Friends

I just started my research on the Wharton EMBA.

I see an average GMAT score, did anyone take the EA ?

Thank you.

Congrats! They must've also been impressed with how well your own profile and goals fit with their program to give you the early nod.

congratulations on getting the acceptance!

Question for all and others, who might know: Does anyone know what is the number of acceptances in R1 vs. R2? For example, if there are about 120 students in PH, how many of them get accepted in R1 and how many are taken in from R2?

One more request:
