How do I find the date when my application status changed to "Complete - Round 1"?

People come to Wharton to do interviews already. One such lucky applicant sat on my OPIM class today in the morning and he looked completely stressed out and disengaged; I talked to a few of my Cohort mates about the guy - everyone thought it was not a good thing to do: the Vice Dean teaches the class, and the last thing you want to do is to send that type of signal all the way to the top of the school. Guys, at least try to appear enthusiastic about the classes when you visit. Just my $.02 for those who come to campus for interviews.

Big congrats to the ones who got interview invites today. The longer the waiting the sweeter the invite is! I liked xerox's two cents. If I am lucky to get an interview, visit the campus, and sit in a class, I will keep in mind to appear enthusiastic and make sure I have a perma-smile on my face :-) It is easier said than done though!

Well I somewhat disagree: first of all the vice-dean doesn't intervene in the selection process to the extent of my knowledge (if he does then that guy could be in trouble because he remembers people). Secondly, unless you're literally falling asleep in front of Anjani (the VD), you'll be fine. Thirdly, I personally don't care how a prospect behaves in class as long as he's quiet, polite and looks awake (falling asleep is an student privilege :-D ); I think a lot of students think in the same lines. Plus who cares about what 1st year students think anyway, they won't be evaluating your candidature.

Finally D, you'll have to admit that OPIM can be quite... soporific! Even though I like it I find it hard not to fall asleep sometimes...

PS: a small tip for visitors: if you do fall in Anjani Jain's class, be aware that he will ask you to introduce yourself, so have something ready. D, I imagine that the student looked stressed out when he introduced himself? (because otherwise there is no interaction between the prospect and the class). Plus I can understand that he's stressed out, I would be too! :shock:

Agreed. I visited Tuck and the prospectives had to introduce themselves to the class. One of the prospective students spoke really fast and sounded really nervous. A couple of people may have laughed or sneered, but for the most part, it was forgotten and noone cared.

I checked out last year's stat's for R1 and about 52% of GmatClubbers were interviewed. I know that this season is more competitive, but I expect to see at least 5 to 9 more interview invites roll in before the deadline.

I hope so! Last year's R1 had 18 applicants from Gmatclub, this year's is much larger at 46. If that is any indication about the whole applicant pool...

Or it is an indication of the popularity of GmatClub. As info spreads and as past users turn new users onto GmatClub, the user base that applies to each school will increase.

True that. I agree it is partially attributed to that, coupled with the increased number of applicants. Love the community we have going here :)

Hopefully this question hasn't been answered already: For those who have gotten interview invites, does it show up in the application system or only by email? I just want to make sure I haven't missed it (and accidentally deleted it) in my spam folder. Thanks.

I've noticed that the number of interview invites so far in R1 is very low on admissions411.com. Last year, about half of the R1 applicants were interviewed, so far this year it's about 10%.

Maybe people don't post interview info on admissions411.com until after the interview. Not sure, but just looked a bit fishy.
