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.
What are the Application Requirements?
The Wharton MBA application is set to open in July 2022. A complete Wharton application comprises background information provided via the school’s online application data forms, an application fee of $275, responses to two essay questions, transcripts from undergraduate and graduate (if applicable) coursework, two letters of recommendation covering the applicants’ performance in a work setting, GMAT or GRE scores, and a one-page resume. The admissions committee notes that at-home GMAT and GRE scores will be accepted through the 2022-2023 season.
Non-native English speakers must also submit TOEFL or PTE scores, unless they hold an undergraduate degree from an institution where English is the language of instruction.
When Does Wharton Issue Interview Invitations?
The Wharton admissions committee conducts interviews by invitation only. The date when candidates will be notified about this application process milestone is reflected in the Interview Invitation column above. Interview invitations will be extended via email; candidates will also receive a link for scheduling the interview, and resources for preparing.
Candidates who are not invited to interview on this date will receive a rejection notification.
