Hey guys,

Just returning from the Wharton information session. I believe its one of the first ones for fall 2008. The director of admissions Thomas <something> was there. Excellent salesman, outstanding presentation skills and good sense of humour. The alumni present there were great too, one of them actually got in with a gmat of 590 (although he was class of 94 ).

My observations and impressions:
- Wharton only likes to compare itself with Harvard and Stanford (a marketing trick highlighter earlier by pelihu)
- A total denial of any type of "quota" system even though no one actually asked the question (someone's defensive)
- An acknowledgment that they look carefully at GMAT breakdowns. If you had an undergrad say in Art History then they focus on your quant score and vice versa for technical majors
- The interest level is Sydney was somewhat low. There were only about 30 attendees. However I did see a large stash of unused name tags (presumably these were people who registered but didnt turn up).
- Too much mention of Mckinseys even though the event was held in the Bain office :)

Will I apply ? Based on just the presentation , probably not. Most of the "information" in the session can be garnered in the web site itself.

However after hearing the alumni speak, I will apply. The alumni were fun, down to earth and keeping it very real (maybe its an Australian thing), and seemed like people who would be heaps of fun.

Adjusted by GMAT inflation, that's about 660 - 680 in today's scores...
