Would like to start a thread for UPenn RD --especially for Undergrad Business in Wharton.
Background -- our son applied day before the last day of deadline. Attends one of the top 10 schools in the country (for the last many years based on US News Ranking).
Anybody got interview so far?
Also, those who got in in ED round....any feedback on how long you had to wait before you got an interview? Also, is there a data available on how many people were ED and how many students were offered admission? Thank you.

    There is already a thread for RD: https://talk.collegeconfidential.com/university-pennsylvania/2115679-upenn-class-of-2023-rd.html#latest

    I know of some people who applied RD and have had their interview already. I applied ED and was given an interview two days after.

    Here is the stats for ED acceptance, straight from Dean Furda's website: https://www.page217.org/university-of-pennsylvania-class-of-2023-early-decision-program/

    I'm sorry but I don't know how long it took. No need to stress, people were getting interview requests at the last second for ED. It won't hurt your application if you don't get one.

    Does Wharton have an Econ program as well? And is it easy to get into?

    When you graduate from Wharton you get a BS in Economics. At the school, you concentrate in a particular field though, like finance or operations.

    I was accepted ED as a nursing student and submitted my application about 1 week before November 1st. I was contacted about an interview one or two days before November 1st. For the other kids that applied from my school, they were contacted 1-2 weeks after they submitted their application. Hope this helped!
