Anybody here doing one of the first two TBD dates?

If so, and if you are comfortable doing so, could you provide an interview debrief or high level thoughts on the TBD.

Hi guys,

Wharton application asks for 'How many times have you taken the GMAT test?', do you have to mention your cancelled score as well in this? If so, does it have a negative effect on your application if you have 1 accepted and 1 cancelled score?

No, you don’t have to report cancelled scores. Thats the whole point of cancelling the score—it’s as if the test never happened (except for the exam fee and time spent taking the test). The GMAT won’t report that you cancelled a score.

Hi,

Just wondering if working in a well-known/feeder company is very important for admission at Wharton. I have been living outside of the United States and have been working for corporations in my home country. The companies are sizable in China but I think relatively unknown in the States. Just a bit worried that it would be a dent on my profile.

Thank you all.

Hi - do we know if Wharton's word count for recommenders (300 words) is a strict limit, or if the 7500 character limit is the only real limit? My recommender just asked me this today.

Hi there,

It's not a deal-breaker and don't think of it as a dent. Wharton understands that not everyone will be able to work for internationally-known companies. 30% of Wharton MBA class is international students so it's not possible that all of them have worked for a big-name company. Also, because Wharton has a diverse and international student body, the school is familiar with the school rankings and big local name companies in the countries that the international students come from, and perhaps the company you work for is familiar to the school.

For international applicants, what's more important than the name of the company is the impact you're able to make at the company. Therefore, focus on the VALUE and IMPACT you're able to create for your company in your essays and resume rather than worrying about the reputation of your company, as that's something you can't change at this point. So focus your attention on proving your potential as a business leader to Wharton, they will value that a lot more than the name of your company. Good luck!

From what my recommender told me: There were 2 boxes for the 2 questions in which he had to put in the recommendation. Each box had a strict word limit of 300 words :)

My recommender definitely went over the 300 word limit. As long as it's reasonable, exceeding the limit should be fine, since the only filter on the box is for 7500 characters.

It is definitely not a strict limit (the 300 words). They'll never penalize an applicant for having an extra-enthusiastic recommender. Best of luck to you!

I'm a re-applicant to Wharton and I noticed that they require two recommendations again.
While this would not be a problem I recently changed jobs and one of my old recommenders was not too happy and my current job is too new to ask for a recent supervisor.
Can I ask another previous supervisor along with an old recommender for the letters?
Any advice?


Read the recommender instructions for each school carefully. Usually Wharton requests that 1 of its two required 2 recs come from a direct manager though that manager doesn’t have to be your *current* manager. In your case, if your former manager is upset that you left for a different employer, then you should use a different manager for their recommendation this time around, likely a manager from a role prior to the one you recently left (since you haven’t been at your new job long enough to ask for a rec). It’s fine to use the same recommender from one year to the next or to switch things up.

Regardless of who you choose, make sure that you are giving your recommenders as much guidance as possible to sing your praises. For instance, you should be giving each of them a bullet point list of the attributes you want them to highlight AND tangible impact that you have driven (hard $# and % data where applicable) to illustrate these qualities. For instance, if you want them to highlight your leadership potential, you want a bullet point for leadership potential with illustrative examples such as “led a team of 5 analysts across [function] and [geography] to complete [project] that was especially difficult for [memorable, likely interpersonal reasons], finishing [ahead of schedule, with better than expected outcomes, etc.]. This makes the recommender’s task much easier since they now don’t have to go back and look up what your impact was. Make sure that you are giving your recommenders different examples and different attributes to highlight to fully depict the 3D you. It might be helpful to talk about recommendation strategy and how that syncs with the achievements on your resume and the strategic positioning in your essays.
