How predictable are Wharton admissions?

<p>Is Wharton one of those places that rejects many people with near perfect SATs/GPA for no apparent reason?</p>

<p>I know some universities (Stanford comes to mind) seem to be completely random in their decision processes and I'm hoping Wharton is a bit more rational?</p>

<p>I'd say it's predictable if your dad is Donald Trump, Warren Buffet etc</p>

<p>lol. That's as good as no easy prediction. Cheer up guys, even if you don't go to Wharton, you can still become successful. I just looked over the recent issue of Forbes and all the successful people weren't the expected magna cum laude in college and then work for the rest of their life at a firm.</p>

<p>yea..theoretically you dont even need to graduate high school to become successful....oh well, I have NYU Stern as a back up school :D</p>

<p>haha me too</p>

<p>and berkeley so its all good... but i still want WHARTON!</p>


<p>Stanford's admission process isn't random. As all colleges do, they look for exceptional kids, not smart kids. It just so is that most of the time, the truly exceptional ones are also smart. Stanford just doesn't place as big an emphasis on scores/grades and more emphasis on extracurriculars.</p>

<p>Who wouldnt want wharton?! NYU Stern is pretty darn good.</p>

<p>im kinda doubtful about NYU Stern....i've heard Stern kids have it kinda hard during recruitment time</p>

<p>Scores and grades do not mean everything but they mean something...
Wharton is not the only path to success.</p>
