I’ll share my experience with the phone chats and interview.
The phone chat as everyone mentioned is very informal and it sounded like this is to be seen as an opportunity for you to figure out how the program can help you in achieving your goals. At least in my case there weren’t any interview questions per se. It was mostly them trying to understand my career and my current role and where I want to go with an MBA. In fact I actually had 2 phone chats since I had some doubts about the program after my first chat a few months ago and they were very accommodating of my second chat request.

I had my interview with Barbara Craft in San Francisco and again it seemed to be very informal and conversational. No curveballs. It was not like a Q&A session, but more free-flowing and she touched on my current role, responsibilities, examples of leadership outside of work and walked me through my career and we discussed my aspirations. I’m a Fellows candidate so she also asked me about my company’s financial support situation specifically. Barbara mentioned that at least 50% financial support must be provided for Fellows candidates. My interview lasted almost an hour.

Overall, I’d say that if you prepare for the standard questions of why MBA, why Wharton, your goals, extra curricular etc you should be fine. They’re definitely very open about the admissions process for Exec MBA, so also prepare some good questions that are specific for your case.

So, any idea when can we expect the results for the Round 1 applications?

Did anyone receive the phone call yet? From last year’s data, people started to receive the phone call one week before the announcement date. Good luck to everyone!

I was referring more to the first post in this thread* that indicates one among us changed their status to "admitted."

According to last year’s data, some people received email on the decision release day without getting a call.
