Starting this admissions season, military veterans applying to the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School will not have to pay an application fee.
In an announcement recently posted to the Wharton MBA admissions blog, Maryellen Reilly Lamb, Deputy Vice Dean of MBA Admissions, Financial Aid and Career Management, explained that this change is part of an effort to attract top military talent in partnership with Wharton’s MBA Veterans Club.
“Last year, 224 active duty and honorably discharged U.S. veterans applied to Wharton,” says Reilly Lamb. “We hope this program encourages more to take that step as well. We thank all veterans for their service to our country and are pleased to offer this well-deserved incentive.”
