Admissionado Tips

Be Global

Wharton’s program is very global, and their adcom wants you to be that way, too. So sell your global side as much as possible. Global teams, global projects, even global travel…

Be Engaged

Wharton prefers candidates with a strong history of involvement – communally, socially, professionally. Each year Wharton confirms its focus on applicants who “get along with others.” They are trying to be less “sharky” than HBS, while still less “feel-good” than Tuck or Kellogg.

Make Progress

Wharton looks for a track record of progress professionally and personally in your history. It’s not just the RESULT but the PROCESS of getting there: growing, advancing, and learning.

Be Different

Although Wharton truly is “the finance factory” (50% of the graduating class entering the finance industry can’t be wrong), the school is always looking to diversify its class and fight its finance-based stereotype. Don’t just discuss what you have done, write also about what it means.
