So there is a long time between 10/22 and 11/7... Anyone know how invites are usually spread over the period?

Do Lauder applicants participate in the group discussion as part of the interview process or do they just do one interview with Lauder and one with Wharton?

Any other Lauder folks on this thread?

According to last year's topic, they come in waves. Usually international applicants get the invite during the first waves. However, this is not a rule and Wharton never announces that it will be that way. It's just based on observation of previous years/rounds.

Lauder applicant for the global program with Korean and Spanish language here.
I assume most of Lauder applicants have passed the OPI test [advanced or above].
Fascinated to learn that there are so many brilliant candidates with global exposure and foreign language profficiency!
It also means greater competition for admission, but after all, it is Wharton. It's worth a shot.
I gave it my all, so no regrets.

is the Round 2 pool generally more competitive than Round 1? Or is it the other way round...

Generally speaking, Round 1 has less applicants vs. Round 2. The round 1 and round 2 interview invites are usually even.

If we assume quality of applicants of round 1 is the same as round 2, then round 2 would be considered slightly more competitive due to increased volume of applicants.

I doubt that Round 2 is more competitive than Round 1. From what I have been able to gather from those that should know, it is very unlikely that someone who would have been interviewed in Round 1 would not have been called for interview in Round 2.

I have spoken with 2 second years recently at a info session happy hour at a top 10 school where 2nd years are very integral part of the process, round 2 is more competitive at this particular school.

Just to go back to my previous point, if they will send out 800 interviews round 1 and 800 interviews round 2, and you have 2000 apps in round 1 and 3200 apps in round 2, mathematically, it will be more competitive if the pool of applicants are the same.

You're assuming they interview and admit the same number of students each round. I think that is incorrect. They save more seats, thus more interview slots, for round 2 because AOs know there are more applicants. They interview and admit proportionally to the number of applicants in each round.

I'm not assuming, there is a ton of data out there already...

http://hbsguru.com/blog/category/hbs-in ... ce/page/3/ details HBS interview invite volume. I can find quotes from admissions from multiple top 10 schools whom send the same amount of invites for round 1 and round 2.

I guess the 'competitiveness' also depends to a large extent on the quality of the applicant pool in each round irrespective of the volume of applications. So for a fair comparison we would need to have the quality metrics similar in each round.

While not strictly about Wharton, the article below suggests that the applicants in Round 1 have some significant advantages over the applicants in Round 2 -- and at least in terms of *interest and preparation* the Round 1 applicants form a stronger pool to draw from than the Round 2 applicants.

IDK if I am totally convinced, but FWIW:

"Early applications show serious interest and planning. In this round, you may have the greatest statistical chance, since you're only being compared to the current candidate pool.

In fact, a former Chicago Booth School of Business admissions committee member says the committee accepted 65 percent of Booth's students during this round.

For applicants to second-tier schools, the top 20 to 40, applying in the first round conveys that the school is a top choice and could result in a scholarship, says a former committee member at the Jesse H. Jones Graduate School of Business."

Hate to repeat a question already asked by IvyTexan above but... didn't seem we had an clarity.

Anyone have an idea how the roll out of invitations works? Is it a 1 Day/week, 5 Days/week, etc?

I didn't see any info on this from anything that was communicated by the admissions office. Any insight would be appreciated.

In other words for international applicants, If your invitation didn't come on 22nd or 2-3 days later, you are doomed ?

Our chances, as international applicants, will be very low if we don't get an invite during the first waves. However, I've read in last years' topic about a couple of cases where international applicants were invited the last day.

One more day!!!
