DWI
Dear Anand,
Thank you for your application to the Wharton MBA program. I regret that the Admissions Committee is unable to offer you an interview or a position in the Wharton MBA Class of 2008.
As you may be aware, the Wharton MBA program receives as many as 7,000 applications annually. In a pool where virtually every candidate offers significant work experience, demonstrates leadership ability, and submits persuasive recommendations, the Committee's job of selecting the entering class is extremely difficult. We are left with the unpleasant task of denying admission to many fine individuals who would, no doubt, succeed academically at the University of Pennsylvania and contribute to Wharton's standard of excellence.
Let me assure you that your application received a thorough review by several members of the Committee. As a policy, we do not pre-screen applications, but give each candidate full consideration. The fact that we have not offered you an invitation to interview or admission is not a reflection of your intellectual abilities, personal achievements, or potential for a successful career.
The Admissions Office will keep your application on file for two years. If you plan to re-apply during this period and would like feedback on your application, kindly contact our office at (Number) beginning the week of (Date) to schedule a feedback session. Sessions are conducted by telephone; appointments fill up quickly and are offered on a first come, first served basis. For instructions on the re-application process, please follow the procedures that will be included in next year's application (available online in August 2006). All reapplications will be reviewed within the context of the overall applicant pool at that time.
Thank you again for your interest in Wharton. I wish you success in your graduate studies, as well as in your personal and career endeavors.

With best regards,

Came across your blog searching for the word DWI. Can share the pain with you, got a ding from Wharton. Got a phone interview invite from Kellogg, still waiting to hear from HBS. When I started the app process, applying to just 3 top schools didn't seem a problem, I am not so sure anymore. Best wishes with rest of your apps.
