Hi Guys!

I just got my admission offer from Wharton!
I applied to Tuck in Round 1 and got in with a $60 K scholarship. I had to deposit my enrolment fee for Tuck before I heard back from Wharton.
My husband applied to Tuck in Round 2 and also got in, but did not get any scholarship from Tuck so far.

My short term ambition is to get into Tech Consulting (So I can quickly pay off my loan).
In the longer term I plan to work for a Tech giant and eventually launch my own tech startup.

I am a US national but have been living in Pakistan, where I have been working for the past 4 years but due to the ever increasing exchange rates have almost negligible savings in USD.
My husband has his immigration petition approved and is waiting for his green card.

I am super confused about what I should do.
Will really appreciate any help you guys could provide to help in decision making or the steps I can or should take:

- My husband should apply to Wharton in round 3? (deadline has been extended to April 15th)
- I should appeal for a scholarship to Wharton? (any suggestions as to how and what to write)
- I should appeal to Tuck to increase my scholarship by leveraging Wharton decision?
- My husband should go to Tuck & I go to Wharton (and try our best to make things work)

Thanks!

M

How Does Coronavirus (COVID-19) Affect My Round 3 Business School Application?


The global Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) has upended nearly every aspect of life as we know it. For those of you who are still wrapping up your business school applications for the class of 2022, what does this mean for you?

Wharton


The deadline Round 3 has been extended to April 15th and for Advance Access to May 27th. Round 3 and Advance Access applicants can submit their applications without having sat for a standardized test. Please see the admissions website for instructions on how to enter your scores into the application. If admitted to Wharton, you will be admitted with the condition that official testing will be submitted before arriving on campus on August 10th, 2020 for Round 3 applicants and before December 31st, 2020 for Advance Access Applicants.

Got the call at about 945pm on 26 March from an "unknown" number. Reception was very bad, so could barely hear the admissions officer. This was followed up by an email 2 hours after. [#permalink]

Has anyone that placed a deposit for R2 received a note about their PennKey yet? Or can anyone from R1 speak to how long it took?

No.

Wharton sent out a communications saying they expect Fall of 2020 to continue as normal. Obviously subject to change.

The current students at Wharton have made a change.org petition asking for relief of tuition fee. You can find the petition here https://www.change.org/p/wharton-mba-co ... assistance

More such petitions from other schools are here https://gmatclub.com/forum/mba-students ... 21086.html

JL2020

From the decision tracker, I see 8 applicants applied in R3 and none of them had any status update yet.

Congrats to those invited to interview in R3! Fortuna will be putting together practice sessions, which include a mock group interview session and personal debrief, led by a former Wharton Head of Admissions.

um is anyone else looking at ClearAdmit right now? It seems like the people with lower standards are getting a lot of interviews (no offense obviously but perhaps its a mistake invite?).

Doesn't seem fair. Maybe, there's reason to it.

I had the same first impression. There are some surprising stats in there, but it's so hard to say anything with a small sample and zero other context about those candidates. Someone made a reasonable point about round 3 kind of being a wildcard candidate round in normal years anyway, so who knows. FWIW, there are some surprising-on-paper profiles that were invited to interview or admitted in earlier rounds glancing through this too https://gmatclub.com/forum/wharton-188/ ... oInterview

If the visa issues deters a lot of internationals from attending, then they could possibly WL those with lower than average class profiles and take them off if needed.

If I had to guess, they might be fillers for the team based interview. There are a lot of slots for team interviews. Maybe 30 if I remember right. If they need 4 or 5 per slot, then that's a lot of people to fill in for a round that typically has very few applicants. Also, if the visa issues deters a lot of internationals from attending, then they could possibly WL those with below average class stats and take them off if needed.


OK, a few hours later it is surprising how few dings have still been reported. "Filler" interview invites don't really make sense to me - they're experienced at this enough to not need crash test dummies for comparison, and they can always hold more or fewer interview sessions - but I think you have to be right that a lot of candidates who might ordinarily be rejected will get WL’d as a hedge... if Harvard came out and said they’re running a deeper WL than normal, MIT is openly reconsidering applicants they rejected in earlier rounds, and Wharton was among many schools extending their R3 application deadline, adcoms must be working in their own ways to manage for potentially much greater melt than normal. Schools still need to make sure they build a balanced class while protecting their stats, and it makes sense that lower statistical profiles that bring other things to the table could be more useful than normal to have on the bench until very late in the game. I do think this all bodes well for (rather than being a slight to) people who are already on the waitlist, though. Guess we’ll know more in a few short weeks...
