The Wharton admissions committee posted an update to its blog regarding Round 2 interviews:
“We will begin to send out interview invitations on Thursday, January 26. Invitations will continue to go out through Tuesday, February 28. During these weeks, you will receive an email that will provide next step information regarding your status with Wharton. If you are invited to interview, you will be given instructions on next steps to set up your interview. If you are not invited to interview, your process with Wharton is closed for this application cycle.
As a reminder, interview invitations are not released in any particular order, as we don’t read your applications in any particular order either. Please don’t stress if you don’t receive your invite until the last day; it indicates nothing about your candidacy.
Wharton offers two types of interviews for invited candidates: on-campus and in-person interviews in various major city locations around the world. All interviews are conducted by Admissions Committee members or a member of a selective, trained group of 2nd year MBA students. Many candidates enjoy the opportunity to come to campus and take part in our campus visit program that allows you to sit in on classes, speak with students and tour Wharton’s beautiful campus.
Starting on Wednesday, February 1, we will begin hosting interviews on campus, which will continue through Monday, March 12. Major-city interviews will be held during the weeks of February 13 – March 5. You will receive information on each city’s availability within those weeks when you receive an update on your interview invitation status. Your VIP page will provide further information as to where and when you can schedule an interview. Spaces are first-come, first-serve and are limited in international locations, so be sure to schedule yourself as soon as possible.
Our international interview cities for Round 2 will be:
As we have mentioned before, we understand completely that there may be extenuating circumstances that hinder your ability to interview at a major city location or on campus. For those applicants, we offer phone interviews with a member of our admissions staff. “
