Happy 2018!

I hope you enjoyed the holiday season and are looking forward to the new opportunities and possibilities in the New Year. The admissions cycle is in full swing with the Round 2 deadline passing recently on January 3. The admissions team is working hard reviewing the next round of applications and preparing for Winter Welcome Weekend later this month.

We host two Welcome Weekends for admitted students: one in January and one in April. Welcome Weekend is a full schedule during which admitted students meet with faculty, administrators, current students, and future classmates while exploring all that Wharton has to offer. Applying to an MBA program is one part of the process – deciding where to go can be equally daunting! At Wharton we aim to do all that we can to help you make an informed decision.

If you’re looking for more information about Wharton, whether you are just beginning to consider an MBA or are an admitted student navigating the decision-making process, I encourage you to reach out to one of our Admissions Fellows. Admissions Fellows are current second-year MBA students who have volunteered to speak with prospective students like you. You can review their profiles and contact admissionsfellows@wharton.upenn.edu to request to be put in touch with one of them.

As always, please reach out to our office with any questions.
