Wharton R1 Rejection Without Interview? Steps to Top-10 R2 Success…

Wharton recently informed each Round 1 applicant whether they received an interview invitation. Given the fact that Wharton ultimately rejects over 80% of applicants, some of you may not have landed an interview, even if you have robust credentials. While this is very disappointing, at MBA Admit.com we have helped many candidates who came to us rejected without interview when applying on their own to top business schools like Stanford, Wharton and Harvard, and with our guidance they were still able to gain admission to a Top-10 MBA program in Round 2.

If you were rejected from Wharton without interview, don’t let this outcome convince you that you cannot have success at a Top-10 school. What are some steps that can get you to success in Round 2? Consider these:

Identify Problems. First, you should identify the weaknesses in your application and candidacy that resulted in your rejection without interview. Sometimes you can get informal insights that provide enough guidance; at other times, a formal Ding Analysis from a reputable company is important for determining precisely what factors were obstacles to your admission. Were your essays poorly written? Was your GMAT score too low? Was your short-term goal or long-term goal a poor choice given your background or the specialties of the school? Was one of your recommendations lukewarm? There are many factors that could lead to a rejection without interview. Just remember, an accurate assessment of your weaknesses is crucial. Some candidates we have worked with came to us with very false understandings of what factors were causing their problems in MBA admissions. If you don’t correct the problem(s) in the application or candidacy, you may not have better results in Round 2.

Make a Plan for a Fix. Once you have a firm understanding of how to strengthen your application or candidacy, make a plan to do so. Some weaknesses can be addressed easily. For instance, if your essays were weak but your underlying credentials are strong, you need to get great guidance about how to best present your candidacy through your essays. This is fixable and with strong essays you might be a very viable candidate in Round 2 at other Top-10 schools. Other weaknesses pose greater challenges. For example, if your GMAT score was too weak for Wharton, you need to assess whether it is strong enough for your next target school. If not, you should re-take the exam before the Round 2 deadline.

Pace Yourself. Finally, after you have determined what steps you should take to achieve better outcomes, you should select your target schools, identify their deadlines and make certain to pace your work so that you make the deadlines. Remember, many recommendation writers will go on vacation in mid-December, so it will be important that you ask them for recommendations ideally by early December so that the recommendations are submitted by the relevant deadlines.



Interested in securing a detailed “Ding Analysis” that can help you identify the weaknesses and strengths of your rejected application(s)?

You can opt to have our president and founder, Dr. Shel Watts, a professional with Harvard admissions experience, look at your application and draw on nearly 26 years of experience to help you understand your application’s deficits and identify a plan of action.

Feel free to reach out to us for a Ding Analysis at info@mbaadmit.com.
