This is the link to last year's thread, provides some good information especially as it relates to status changes and interview dates, etc. Looks like invites didn't go out until the end of November last year...

Was the interview schedule the same for last year (December 2nd week and mid January)? Oh, btw, my status finally changed to "Pending Committee Review"

I don't know, but you could check the forum from last year. It may have been a little different, since there is no Early Decision this year.

In other news, I thought this was hilarious. Don't call us...we may or may not call you.

Interview invites are apparently going out. Saw a post on BW forum from someone that got one today. Apparently there is no email sent, you just have to go in and check online.

Good luck to all.

"We are very excited to welcome you to the Darden Grounds for your Admissions interview."

Got it via email. Score. Enjoy Charlottesville, guys... and definitely check out the Blue Moon Diner for brunch.

Also, the UVA Drama Department is putting on Oklahoma! and I hear it's a pretty good show. I'm going to see it the night before my interview (5th). Just in case you're looking for something to do in C-ville...

I'll def check out the Blue Moon, my interview is the 8th (Monday), so I'll shoot up at least the day before. This will be a new experience for me in Charlottesville, as most of my meals have been taken at the 7-11 on Ivy.

Congrats to those who received interviews!

Mine still says "Pending" :( I've got a bad feeling about this...

How early did you guys who got interview invites submit? I wonder if there is a correlation here.

Invited for a phone interview :-D

Thank you guys for pointing out that I have to check the status of my application. It mentions that if I don't contact darden back within 10 days, my application will be withdrawn ! I was waiting for an email but it turns out that I had to frequently check my application status.

That's another favor GMAT club has done to me.

The real question here is: What percent of those interviewed by Darden actually get in ?

Good luck to everyone invited to interview! I'm sure you too will have stellar experiences visiting the Darden Grounds. Try and stay at the Sponsors Hall if you can, I found it to be excellent value for money.

By the way any consensus on how best to answer that "I am a person who __________________________, with expertise in ____________________________ question?"

Did most of you go with a personal description of "you" in the first blank, and a brief synopsis of your professional experience in the second blank?

I believe that I submitted six minutes before the 11:59 PM EST deadline.

Cool, thanks. The "expertise" bit throws me off but I suppose there really is a lot of flexibility here. I'll try to have some fun with this. :-D

I have updated the R1 applicant stats on p.1 of this thread. Please let me or any of the other mods know if someone is missing or the information needs to be changed/updated. Thanks!
