Here are Wharton’s MBA essays for 2020 – 2021:

ApplicantLab gives you exclusive step-by-step advice on how to answer all of Wharton’s questions and determine which of your stories most proves your fit with the UPenn community:
  • Essay 1: What do you hope to gain professionally from the Wharton MBA? (500 words)
  • Essay 2: (CHANGED for the 2020 – 2021 season for the class of 2023!) Taking into consideration your background – personal, professional, and/or academic – how do you plan to make specific, meaningful contributions to the Wharton community? (400 words
  • Re-Applicant Essay (required for all re-applicants):
    • Please use this space to share with the Admissions Committee how you have reflected and grown since your previous application and discuss any relevant updates to your candidacy (e.g., changes in your professional life, additional coursework, and extracurricular/volunteer engagements). (250 words)
  • Optional Essay:
    • Please use this space to share any additional information about yourself that cannot be found elsewhere in your application and that you would like to share with the Admissions Committee. This space can also be used to address any extenuating circumstances (e.g., unexplained gaps in work experience, choice of recommenders, inconsistent or questionable academic performance, areas of weakness, etc.) that you would like the Admissions Committee to consider.

The Lab ALSO teaches you how to create a strong MBA resume (hint: it’s not the same one you used to apply for your last job!) & most efficiently fill out your application form

ApplicantLab was the only tool I used when I applied for Round Two this year and was instrumental in helping me get accepted to Wharton, Yale and Darden in the end.

The tool was not just helpful for the brainstorming phase of the process, it also gave very insightful advice on how to tackle each school’s essays specifically.

– (AZhao, Accepted to Wharton, Yale, Darden).

ApplicantLab was intuitive, easy to navigate, and provided the key info that I needed in a tailored format for each school – amazing!  

I ended up receiving acceptance to Wharton, Kellogg, and Yale with scholarships at two of these schools.

ApplicantLab was hands down the best ~$300 I spent throughout the application process.”
