Minority MBA applicants (yes, that includes women, at least where top MBA programs are concerned), take note: Wharton is sponsoring a diversity day for you:
Explore Wharton: Diversity in Action
September 20-21, 2007
If you are a woman, an under-represented minority, or a LGBT prospective
student, we invite you to visit us at our annual prospective student
event Explore Wharton: Diversity in Action on Thursday, September 20 and
Friday, September 21, 2007.
Co-sponsored by the African American MBA Association (AAMBAA), Wharton
Hispanic American MBA Association (WHAMBAA), Wharton Women in Business
(WWIB), Out for Business (Out4Biz) and Wharton's MBA Admissions Office,
Explore Wharton gives you the opportunity to experience Wharton
first-hand. This two-day event focuses on Wharton MBA opportunities for
prospective women, LGBT and under-represented minorities. You will meet
current students and administrators, attend classes with Wharton's top
professors and gain invaluable insights in the admissions process.
Discover how our distinctively collaborative environment, innovative
learning channels, global reach, and diversity of talent, place you at
the leading edge of new ideas that shape worldwide practice in the
business, nonprofit and government sectors.
WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU....

Even if special diversity events are not your cup of tea, you should go (assuming you fall into one of the designated categories). It's a great way to get some face-time with admissions officers.
