Good luck!


Thanks buddy! I know it's still on the early side to be thinking about Rd 2, but I'd finalize your short list asap so you can start on the essays. Order of difficulty, from my perspective was Duke < Michigan < Darden. I know Darden is on your radar, and you may be willing to look beyond a couple of "issues" and opening up to Duke, but either way, you'll definitely want to start brainstorming. We can talk more at the Darden info session next week.


Good call. It's definitely on my mind. I need to get Tuck in by November 12th and then after that it will be on to Round 2. I'm likely going to pick 3, maybe 4 from: Harvard, Wharton, Stanford, Kellogg, Haas and UCLA.

Got an email at 9:01 PM PST that said my status has been updated to "received."

Your application has been received and is currently being prepared for review. Please be patient during this process.

No email either. Just showed up on the website.

another quick question. Does Darden have a transcript template to use?


You can send in a PDF copy of your unofficial transcript. I yanked mine off the registrar website and away I went to Kinko's. Much less painful than entering it into an excel sheet.

Also, did anyone notice they pushed the deposit deadline back significantly? It states March 12 on the website, but then it says April 30 when you submit your app. Pretty sweet...if that's something I have to worry about.

Yeah its nice that they are doing that, especially if someone gets into Darden and gets waitlisted elsewhere.

I will second that. Dean Bruner is an excellent spokesperson for the school, and those who know my story know that my meeting with him at an event like this was pivotal in getting me to learn more about Darden, which eventually led to visiting the school, meeting more people, applying and finally attending.

He'd also be an excellent person to listen to right now because he's an expert on financial crises (his book from last year titled Panic of 1907 seems particularly relevant right now) and finance in general. If you get a chance to go, I think you'll also be able to observe the tight community that carries across graduating classes and generations. Even in places far from campus like San Francisco (which I attended a few years ago) and Los Angeles, the community spirit really comes through in the people and in the presentation.

I'm keeping an open mind to Darden. The rigorous academics and solid reputation among the finance community definitely attract me.
