While Harvard and Stanford have been the de-facto Number #1 and #2 in most rankings, those who want to carve their way into Finance and Consulting role without the overblown narrative of Entrepreneurship or changing the world should consider Wharton.
The secret in receiving admit to Wharton is minimizing the spin on changing the world or the technicalities of your solutions. Instead, focus on your leadership, interpersonal dynamics, and effectiveness in multiple team environments, cultures, and scenarios. The IMPACT captured in your resume should be enough to compensate for the lack of platitudes in your narrative.
They accept candidates who are:
1) Intellectually Curious (as an individual contributor and leader)
2) Vulnerable (recognizes the gap in skills, approaches, and leadership)
3) Understand team dynamics (working with multiple age groups and skillset)
4) Work exceedingly well with international teams (Applies cultural sensitivity to complex market and team problems)
5) Adapt to any environment (work, travel/culture, and projects – technology, funding, and resources)

1) What do you hope to gain professionally from the Wharton MBA? (500 Words)
2) Describe an impactful experience or accomplishment that is not reflected elsewhere in your application. How will you use what you learned through that experience to contribute to the Wharton community? (400 words)
