The best I can hope for is a waitlist at this point.

Why? Because you did not interview?

congrats guys. looks like a fair number of you converted from the interview stage. There is still some hope with another 3 hrs of calls to go for the rest of you..

Once you are done celebrating do share tips with us R2ers for interviews etc..

Thanks for all of the kind words guys. After my experience last year, I'm not used to the kind of success that I'm having with the b-school applications.

I am so happy to have cracked Darden. In my opinion, they had the hardest essays of the schools that I applied to.

To those still waiting, keep your chins up-still plenty of time.

Awesome, so business school (particularly Darden) is full of guys who think they can automatically get laid? Somehow I don't think it works that way, especially with the rather high male to female ratio.

ces1218 and toubab - knock it off you two.

I don't think anyone mean that comment really seriously. McDargoiowkel just "turned a phrase" there.

Keep it friendly.

Quote from The Rock (1996):
John Mason: Your "best"! Losers always whine about their best. Winners go home and @&%! the prom queen.

I was speaking metaphorically: I'm the loser, Darden is the prom queen. Sorry if I offended anyone.

Two quick questions.

1. Did anyone who got the call today get offered a scholarship?

2. Last night I had dinner with a second year that estimated that ~45% of the second year class still do not a have job offer. Anyone, (Pelihu) care to comment? Is that normal this late in the game?

Still not bad! Hang on there Lev!

any R2 apps? Due to falling R2 app volume and R1 admit turnovers, some schools' R2 and R3 actually look good right now.

I was really pulling for you man! I am sure you can convert this......just follow their waitlist rules (if they have any).

Thanks, Raabend. Their waitlist rules seemed to simply be to click "yes" that you want to be on the waitlist and then hang tight. They said not to submit anything unless there is a "major change" such as a new job, a degree completed, etc.

Now, what I'm wondering is if I should take another trip down to Charlottesville and try to have another meeting with admissions. My trip there before was pretty comprehensive, but I did not have a chance to sit in on a class. Maybe going back, sitting in on a class, meeting with a dean of admissions might show dedication? What do you guys think?
