• Invitations were sent out on Monday, October 20th.
• If you didn’t receive an interview invitation, that doesn’t necessarily equal a ding – you could still be waitlisted or asked to interview during Round 2.
• If you’re wondering about the percentage of interviewed applicants that get admitted, Soojin Kwon, Michigan Ross’s Director of Admissions, explains: “[T]hat depends on the number of interview invitations we make – which varies from year to year depending on the approach we want to take (e.g., cast a wide net, which could mean more interviewees are placed on the waitlist), and the number of admission offers we make, which depends on projected yield (i.e., our estimate of how many admits will decide to enroll).” So don’t necessarily create predictions based on previous years’ numbers!
And for Wharton:
• Round 1 team-based discussions will be held on campus (in Philadelphia), as well as at off-campus locations in San Francisco, London, Dubai, Sao Paulo, Mumbai, Shanghai, Seoul, Tokyo, and Singapore.
• Interviews will take place in November. Invites were only sent out on Friday, October 31st, so yours could still be in the mail….
• Wharton provides more info about their team-based discussion here.
Stay tuned for tomorrow’s post with tips on how to ace the TBD!
