As usual, the Wharton School is conducting its admissions process over three rounds this admissions season.

The admissions committee encourages first-time applicants, reapplicants, and international students to submit their applications in Round 1 or Round 2. Submatriculation applicants (i.e. current college students) are advised to apply in Round 3 so that more of their academic record is available for review by the admissions committee.
