Not usually no. I think for the last round, we got the invites on weekdays.

I finally went complete today (or over the wknd)! I submitted really early and was definitely getting a little nervous.

If you don't go complete by the 29th (date mentioned in e-mail), I'd suggest calling the office.

By that logic should we expect that interview calls will start rolling after 29 ?

The email that Wharton sent applicants stated

The Admissions Committee will begin to release interview invitations on Thursday, January 22nd and will continue to release invitations on a daily basis until 5:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time on Thursday, February 19th.

The BW and Wharton's S2S forums have already reported a very small number of interviews.

I've only heard of one person being interviewed - the legacy applicant. Have you heard of others?

You're right - I got the schools mixed up for some reason. Sorry about that.

I have just seen only 1 legacy applicant getting an inteview call till now . Is it that Wharton is not sending any interview invites or is it that most of the people who are getting invites are not there on the forums? I know that Whartons application screening process is such that, that most of the interview invites come during the last 2-4 days of the deadline. But only 1 interview invite in 6 days?

Complete or submitted? Which status should my app be?

just saw this on the adcom blog

"Adcom do not target any particular number of invitations per day, or even in total (invitations are issued on the basis of a quality, rather than a numerical, threshold) . Rather invitations are issued as evaluations are received back from readers, and processed by the back office staff - some days large numbers are received back and some days fewer. Adcom have a large pile of applications to work through and this takes time - some applications are amongst the first to be reviewed, and some are among the last, on a purely random basis.

However, it is fair to say that the nature of the review process is such that the vast majority of interview invitations go out towards the final couple of weeks of the interview 'window' rather than the first few weeks (indeed, typically a significant proportion go out in the final couple of days).

Ultimately trying to predict numbers and timing is pointless - both in terms of there not being a predictable pattern, and also in that it won't make YOUR invitation come any faster.

I would strongly advise going and enjoying a recreational beverage (or six) with some friends during this time, rather than tearing your hair out trying to work out exactly when your invitation will arrive."

easy for them to say to relax!!!!
