I hosted a WSO webinar (link here) on Thursday, December 3rd about my application to Wharton and how I got in, despite having a low gmat score (only 10% of admitted students had a GMAT under 700, and mine was definitely nowhere near that).
I'll be talking about the specific things I did in my application in that webinar. However, I figured to have an open ended thread for anyone with any questions about my experience thusfar, specific classes, professors, extra curricular activities, the culture, etc. Figure I can clear a lot of stuff up and give very specific details into my experience at Wharton thusfar. My goal is for you to know crystal clear what the experience is, as if you were an insider. As if you were a student already.
When I applied to Wharton I had a few friends there, but one in particular who answered a million question of mine. I felt like a student already with all the inside knowledge by the time of my group interview. It really made a difference, and I hope to be that person for all of you who are applying.
