Philadelphia GMAT Prep Private Tutor & Course

GMAT Student Review (Philadelphia | Philly)

My GMAT tutor Henry was very knowledgable. Overall I would rate my tutoring sessions with him as a 5 out of 5 or excellent! All of the GMAT exam topics were well covered in my sessions and the materials included were very helpful as well. Henry was a great instructor and I would definitely recommend him to other students preparing for their GMAT exams.

Local B-School at Philly: Wharton MBA Application Elements

MBA Applicant Profile

Wharton values professional experience and maturity in a candidate. Applicants can be denied simply on the basis of needing a few more years in the field. Candidates will need to make it clear to Wharton why the present is the right time to begin business school. The school sometimes advises applicants to gain additional relevant experience.

In the meantime, Wharton accepts existing MBA holders (including holders of online degrees), with no minimum work experience required. Wharton is also historically friendly to applicants from non-traditional backgrounds.

Overall, the school is looking for: self-awareness, integrity, good ethics, creativity, perseverance, solid communication skills, emotional intelligence, team spirit, and leadership potential. Additionally, it values an applicant's contributions made to school, community, and other personal initiatives.

Application Essays

Application essays should do a very good job of introducing the candidate. It is imperative to be very clear about past accomplishments and goals.

Wharton seeks to determine a candidate's innovative character on the basis of past achievements, work experiences, and stated goals; though the admissions committee does not necessarily assume that past achievements will lead to future ones.

Wharton looks for candidates who fit with their record of achievement in innovation, who display entrepreneurial spirits, and who are interested in new ideas, business models, and methods for the future. Feedback sessions are limited (some students denied) but all re-applicants are given equal consideration.
