is it reasonable to think that wharton released half of its interview invites today, and will release the remaining half on thursday?

the current roll-call on the first page shows 18% of R1 candidates have been invited to interview, with last year's R1 number around 33%, along with historical percentages in that range.

i might be grasping at straws here, but let me know if this is illogical or incorrect in any way. it's disappointing to read last year's forum and see almost all dings on the last day, but hearing stories from others about friends who were invited on the last day gives me hope. possibly foolish, but hope nonetheless.

My gut sense on that is that the "mostly dings" perception is a result of ALL dings being released on that day. That crowds out the positive news.

I think your assumption is fair. They probably take 1/x to send out for each of x number of waves.

I think too that more invites will follow on 7th. But deriving this on the basis on roll calls might be erroneous. If you see last year's invited to interview - it's just 4% (11 calls) - it was clearly not updated properly; Interviewed number seems to be correct though. This year's 'invited to interview' # looks better updated, but could be the case that it's not yet fully so.

Eitherways, lets hope for an invite today or tomorrow - good luck to those waiting!

I believe if you change your status to interviewed you come out of the invited pot. So the remainder were people who did not update their status. Therefore the low number in invited to interview was not an error

For all those still waiting - there are still a ton of open interview slots on the schedule, so either the people who Wharton has invited aren't in a big rush to sign up for interviews, or Wharton is going to release many more invites tomorrow. Guess which one of those two is more likely...

Great point.

For those who don't get the call this afternoon, remember it isn't the end of the world. Wharton isn't the only MBA program out there that will help you achieve your goals. Certainly a number of schools can do so, but if you decide Wharton is the only place for you, there is always next year

For those that do, congrats! your patience payed off - go schedule that interview.

Whatever the case, be sure to update your status on here, and remember - the MBA is a tool to get to your destination, not the destination itself.

Good luck everyone!

To give a bit more colour, I will confirm that there are plenty of slots left for on-campus team-based discussions for later dates (18th onward).

Most of the international hubs are full / closed with the following exceptions:
- 1 time slot for Sao Paolo on the 19th
- 1 time slot for San Francisco on the 20th
- 1 time slot for Seoul on the 25th
- 1 time slot of Tokyo on the 28th

My guess is they will continue to send out international invites today, but that most will have to travel to campus if they want to interview. Good luck!

Wouldn't be concerned about the slots listed online for India or elsewhere if there are only a few or none at all. Yes, it is possible that they have maxed the # for that location, but I would imagine that it is just as likely not to be the case. Tons of reasons could explain the situation - particularly for logistical purposes (perhaps they release additional ones with each wave, maybe they want to ensure they get enough for each day so they can fill the groups, etc.)

All I'm trying to say is that there is no reason to assume a negative conclusion when there are so many other factors that could be at play.

Invited % is already showing 20% assuming everyone here has updated their statuses. What final percentage are we looking at ?

I don't think it is a good assumption to think that everyone has or will update their status. Booth interviews a similar % of applicants to Wharton (probably slightly more), and the Booth page is showing 24% invited, and the Booth invite process is over with for Round 1. I would imagine of the total population on GMAT club, only ~half update their status within one week of notification. I would be surprised but certainly not shocked if the Wharton % creeps past the low 20's% by tomorrow.
