If you have been invited to interview with a school that is using the group interview format, you will absolutely want to take advantage of our mock team-based discussion (TBD). This format can be fun, but also challenging and stress inducing! Success comes from practice and becoming comfortable with the format.
We will have dedicated groups of 3-6 people for Wharton with a former Wharton Admissions Officer. Either Anthony or Meghan, who are both former Wharton AdCom and experienced SBC consultants, facilitate most of the mock TBDs for SBC clients. Anthony worked as Wharton’s MBA Admissions Officer at the time when the team-based discussion format was designed and launched.
You will receive preparation tips and a one hour mock experience followed by written feedback with actionable advice. For this Wharton TBD mock session, we spend most of the time working on the TBD exercise. The mock TBD sessions are to get participants comfortable with the group interview format. Your Wharton expert will give tips and expectations for the 1:1 component of the Wharton interview process.
[The actual Wharton TBDs can be conducted by the AdCom or Second Year Admissions Fellows; typically, there are 2 evaluators for each group of 5-6 and one of those two people would be the person conducting the 1:1 interview. ]
