I recently had my R1 TBD and 1on1 Wharton interview. Since decisions will not be released till December 13th, my brain has decided to go in over stress mode and I am questioning my TBD performance.
After the prompt was read, I went first. No one else spoke up so I did.
Throughout the TBD, I offered ideas. Some other members quickly offered to be the ones on the white board and timekeeper. My idea was eventually chosen and combined with another person’s to create the final presentation which we presented together.
I keep thinking that I may have come off as aggressive even though I was genuinely blown away by some other ideas and made sure to recognize those.
Eventually, I was called last for my 1on1 interview. I keep thinking the 1on1 interview sequence is indicative of the interviewer’s preference. If I was called last, it probably means I sucked in my TBD.
Am I overthinking?

I'm sure you did fine, you're probably overthinking it :) I think it's fine to talk a lot as long as you didn't bulldoze over other people's ideas, leave space for others to talk, and recognize their contributions. The 1 on 1 interviews at my TBD were just in order of seating; I doubt there's anything to read into there.

I had mine today... definitely would say you’re overthinking. I’d be very surprised if there was a correlation between the order you’re interviewed and your performance.

Remember, you don’t have to be the most vocal or quickest for the TBD to be a success... it sounds like you did fine!

I hope I didn’t come off as bulldozing other’s ideas by talking too much, because I thought most of the ideas were actually better than mine.
Honestly, I got nervous and blabbered more than I usually do.
I’m thankful though for your encouraging words! :)

You know before going in, I fully realized that I don’t need to be the quickest or the most vocal, but somehow when I was there, I got nervous and started talking more than usual. Oh well, not much I can do now. Thank you though.
I hope yours went well! Good luck with the process! :)

You are really overthinking. :-) In fact you should be proud that you took lead in starting the discourse. I don't know how your interviewers would judge your performance but from my viewpoint when everyone else is silent, the person who shows courage to start a conversation by presenting an idea deserves the praise.

so where this finally ended? Did you get acceptance from Wharton?
