Round 1 Complete – Now What Happens?

The Round 1 written application deadline for the Class of 2019 is in the books, and congratulations and best wishes to those who applied during this cycle. We can hear your sigh of relief from our offices in Vance Hall!

With November right in front of us, here’s what will happen next. Invitations for Round 1 applicants to interview will be sent November 2, and if you are invited, you will participate in a Team Based Discussion (TBD) and a one-on-one interview — either on campus in Philadelphia, or in one of several major cities around the world, including Beijing, Delhi, Dubai, London, San Francisco, Sao Paulo, Seoul, Singapore and Tokyo.

We encourage you to interview in a location most convenient to you. You can learn more about the TBD — which mimics the collaborative nature of the Wharton community — from the people who experienced it firsthand, our current students.

In upcoming blog posts, we’ll share with you some tips and ideas to maximize the TBD experience. In the meantime, if you have questions, feel free to contact us directly at any point throughout the process.

We are here to support you and look forward to being in touch soon!
