MBA News: Admissions Director, Thomas Caleel, Leaves Wharton

On the same day that Wharton released its new essay questions, it also announced the departure of  Thomas Caleel, now the former Director of MBA Admissions and Financial Aid. Caleel, a former Wharton student, had served in this capacity since 2005. Wharton offered no explanation for Caleel’s departure and named Anjani Jain, Vice Dean and Director of Wharton’s Graduate Division as Acting Director until a permanent replacement is found.

 What does this mean for Wharton aspirants? Not much for now. Until a new Director is found, it is unlikely that there will be any major changes to the approach of Wharton’s Admissions office.
