The following UPenn / Wharton interview questions and report were submitted to Clear Admit by a Round 2 applicant. Good luck to them!
I arrived at the location 20 minutes earlier and had the opportunity to chat with 2 of the 4 other candidates that were to participate to the interview. The admission representative was also in the lobby where we were waiting – though indeed we did not who she was…
My TBD team was quite diverse: a US trader, a UK consultant , a German portfolio manager and an Indian eutrepreneur .
I felt pretty relaxed during the actual TBD and I have been able to easily discuss with my teammates: I naturally proposed my ideas and built on others’ideas when I believed they were pertinent. Despite some minor points in the delivery of 2 of us, I believe we faired together pretty well as we managed to find a common ground on the topic (in fact we just mixed almost all of our ideas) and deliver the required work on time.
Regarding the one-to-one interview, I found it a bit more formal than I expected but I failed to change the interview “atmosphere”. At overall, I believe I have naturally answered the questions :
• Do you believe the role you played during the TBD was similar to the one you normally play ?
• Given this TBD and your whole application, what more would you like to discuss ?
• Wharton offer many resources, what one resource will I use if I were to pick only one?
• Do you report a change in part of your application ?
• Any question ?
