Wharton Group Interviews

Wharton’s interview process is unique in that it includes a group discussion. In an effort to help you prepare for this challenge, we offer group interview practice sessions. We conduct these sessions in a secure, online format to give you a chance to simulate the interview environment.
 

Taking part in our practice session allows you to:

  • Experience the stress of interacting with Wharton-grade peers driving towards a time-sensitive deliverable (for many participants, a first) in a risk-free environment

  • Articulate your response to other Wharton applicants, hear their ideas, and gain valuable group feedback

  • The chance to give and receive critical feedback from your peers

 

You never know, someone you practice with may be in your actual interview, giving you a critical edge! After the session, we will offer you detailed written feedback, highlighting our assessment of the following:

  • Effectiveness of your idea

  • Your contributions to group dynamics

  • Strengths to leverage and weaknesses to address
     

The cost for one group session and written feedback is $500 for the 2021-22 application cycle. Please note that space is limited.

We conduct these sessions in groups of 4-6 participants. Having an appropriate number of applicants in the conversation makes the simulation as realistic as possible, which is important for all the participants. The value of the session is maximized only if all people who sign up attend.  Given the group nature of the call (and the importance of having a full group to practice), there are no refunds if you cannot participate.

Words from our clients

- Wharton Admit

“Participating in your group mock interview made a crucial difference in my acceptance to Wharton, as the feedback I received was invaluable to formulating a successful interview strategy.  As this was my first opportunity to interact with non-military peers of this caliber, I quickly recognized my need to consider how to most appropriately share my leadership style.  Further, I definitely felt like I had a competitive advantage walking into my actual interview, simply due to feeling at ease with the interview process itself.  Finally, I appreciated learning more about how to provide insightful ideas and commentary to truly add value to the group. Thank you for this excellent preparatory tool!”
