Kellogg and Wharton Lead Schools in “Snapshot” Appeal

snapshotClear Admit’s latest series of School Snapshots—free overviews of the leading business schools’ MBA programs—have been out for just over two weeks, with more than 1,000 downloads to date. For the quants among you, we thought we’d have a little fun with the data.

Wharton Round 2 Applicants Await Interview Invitations

whartonTomorrow’s the day. If you applied to the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School as part of Round 2, you will very likely be checking your email repeatedly in hopes that an invitation to interview lands in your inbox. Good luck!

Wharton uses the Team-Based Discussion (TBD) format for interviews, as it has for the past few years. In terms of logistics, those invited to interview tomorrow can choose from a range of locations around the globe, including Wharton’s campus in Philadelphia, as well as San Francisco, London, Dubai, Mumbai, Shanghai, Sao Paulo, Seoul, Singapore and Tokyo. Each TBD will include five or six applicants grouped by the order in which they sign up for various locations. And interviews will take place beginning in late February. Continue reading…

Harvard Business School to Send Out Round 2 Interview Invitations Beginning Tomorrow

interview9As applicants to Harvard Business School (HBS) are probably well aware, Admissions Director Dee Leopold and her team are scheduled to send out the first of its Round 2 interview invitations tomorrow, Wednesday, January 28th. What about the blizzard that’s blanketing the northeastern portion of the United States, you wonder? As of yesterday, Leopold expected that invites will still go out as planned, at noon Boston time. “If we need to delay, we will let you know via this blog, a general announcement on the admissions website and also with a voicemail recording on our general phone line,” she wrote in a post to her Director’s Blog, but as of this writing, no updates.

So, some details about HBS interview invites. They will go out in two waves, one tomorrow, and a second on February 4th. Historically, HBS has sent out the bulk of its invites in the first wave. Leopold offered that her best guess is that roughly 600 applicants will receive invitations tomorrow, with another 200 or so receiving invitations next week. “I’ve said this before, but please don’t speculate or develop theories or algorithms about first vs. second,” she urged. “It doesn’t work that way. And it has nothing to do with when you submitted, where you live, or the first letter of your last name.” Continue reading…

Praise for the Clear Admit Guides and the MBA Planner App

One of our newest contributors to Fridays From the Frontline, texaswannabecali recently shared her thoughts about the Clear Admit Fuqua School Guide, which she refers to as a “one stop shop.”  Here are some highlights from her blog:

“It lays a really good foundation of organized info on which you can build upon by allowing you to spend more time researching the details that are most relevant to you…I actually learned a lot about Fuqua that I hadn’t even thought to research or look into.”

texaswannabecali wraps up her review by saying, “I would highly suggest getting a copy,” and goes on to give her readers some insight into Clear Admit’s MBA Planner App:

“I especially find this useful for the essays such as Duke’s ’25 Random Things.’ I tend to forget the so-called interesting things I’ve experienced in my 24 years of life when put on the spot to actually list them, so I like the fact that when I randomly think of something, I can just whip out my phone and make a note.”

With Round 1 deadlines just around the corner, it’s the perfect time to do school research and get organized!  All 27 Clear Admit School Guides are available for immediate download in the Clear Admit Shop and you can find the MBA Planner App in the iTunes App Store.
