Wow, Darden's in the top 10 most popular schools by number of application so far according to admissions411.com.
Highly unscientific, but perhaps a sign of things to come?

So I'm (finally) starting the Darden essays for Rd 2. One thing I'm curious about - there's no explicit question that says "why darden". I was thinking of incorpating bits of that into essays 1 and 3, but with those word limits, it could be pretty tricky...

Is that what y'all R1-ers did?

thanks :)

PS should we start a Rd 2 list?

Where's the R1 roll call, folks? Start one with your submit dates so I can post it on the first page of this thread.

This is the closest we had to R1 list. I don't know if it matters when we submitted since everyone's status seems to be progressing lockstep. But I got mine in 10/27.

I applied R1 and found that while I hit the "why Darden" in essay 1, it was easier to flesh out in the third (case study). FYI... when I went to their open house a while back they were very insistent that folks observe the word count - "expressing your thoughts concisely is what the case method is all about."

Thanks nadtrans! Glad to know I'm not the only one thinking that it's tricky :)

Just want to make sure this tally is for submitted applicants (not merely interested or intended apps). Otherwise it makes it more difficult to track submitted dates as well as those that have limited postings. Don't worry, the deadlines will come soon enough :) and we'll add you to the list once you submit. Also, I deleted the two people with question marks just because I didn't know what there status was. Again, just trying to keep an accurate tally. Nevertheless, please feel free to update accordingly. Thanks.

My application status is still "Application Complete". Should it change to "Pending" to indicate that they are reviewing it?

Mine is still complete as well. Nothing to worry about there, I think.

Mine is pending, but I'm starting to get a little restless. I applied to another school after UVA and have already received the admissions decision. I really think their applications are through the roof this year.

McDargoiowkel, what was the other school you applied and got a decision. Also, if you listened to their blog post, they are going to review ALL applications for R1 before sending out any invites...so we are waiting for them to review all R1 in detailed...hence the delay.

Moved from "Pending" to "Pending Committee Review."
