Wharton’s New EA Target (Executive Assessment, 2020): 155!

This year marks the third year that Wharton has accepted the Executive Assessment exam instead of the GMAT or GRE for candidates who have more than eight years of work experience. In its first year of accepting the EA exam, Wharton told many candidates that a score of 150 was fine, with a quant of at least 10. Last year, Wharton told many candidates they wanted a score of 160 or higher, with a quant of at least 12.

Many candidates were very disheartened to hear last year that Wharton preferred a score of at least 160. That is a very high score. Happily, this year Wharton has been telling many candidates that 155 is within their standards, but we have noticed at MBA Admit.com that they are more prone to tell a candidate this when the quant is at least 12.

The good news overall is that Wharton will likely show more flexibility on the EA this year. Wharton is concerned about your ability to thrive in its very rigorous quantitative program, so if your EA is under 155 or if your quant is under 12, try to point out your other credentials that indicate you can perform excellently in the program.

I got 155 but IR-12, V-12 and Q-11. Kinda disappointed as Q is my strong suite - I have 2 engineering degrees.
I made that classic mistake of spending too much time on 1 Q questions and had to guess last 2 questions for the lack of time.

I'm thinking should I even apply to Wharton now? or Just move to HaaS?

Hi,

It all depends on your overall profile - industry, citizenship, male/female, #WE years, company, and title, among other things. I know that this year Wharton has told candidates -- even candidates who are men of Indian heritage (one of the hardest profiles in terms of competition in the pool) -- that 155 is fine. Wharton typically wants a minimum of 12 on the quant, and if you are an Indian foreign national male, they may want to see a higher quant score (such as around 14).

I don't think you should self-select yourself out of the admissions process. Was this your first EA attempt? You can always submit a second score after the deadline, giving yourself a week post-submission when you won't have to work on essays and can focus fully on the exam.

Feel free to send your resume to me at info@mbaadmit.com and I can give you more of an assessment about how I think you might fare at Wharton.
