Hey all, Im a R1'er here, and am interviewing on the 9th with a local alumni.

For those of you who've gone through the interview process, what advice would you give ? I know Darden is really looking for fit, so howd you go about demonstrating this during your interview ?

Thanks in advance for any words of wisdom !


TheDream,

While I cannot answer your question (as I have not interviewed with Darden at this time), I find it amusing that you applied everywhere I did! I'd been watching all my school threads, and only started posting once my decisions were released.

I wish you all the best with Darden, and hope someone can give you an answer to your question in time for your January 9th interview.

Thank you, sir/ma'am!

I haven't made a decision yet, but it's likely going to be London Business School.

Hey guys, anyone having problems logging into Darden's application system? I can't access since yesterday. The symplicity site fails to load.. Have to send my recommender invite :(

Please count me in for round 2.

Thanks!


I can log in to the system without problems. You might want to try another browser - I have had problems accessing from Internet Explorer a couple of times...


I can log into the system too. But I know one of my recommenders has some problems accessing the system when he's about to submit the recommendation letter yesterday.

By the way, I'm officially in R2. Submitted my application 2 weeks ago and all recommendation letters have just been submitted.

All the best to all!!!


As I came home from work today I was completely ready to submit my application and then what? Baam, the system crashes on me. How's that for irony!

Anyways, congratulations on the submit!

Ahh thats sad. Hope you have backed up your work. I am sure Darden adcom will allow you to submit your app in r2 with slight delay. Have you considered mailing them about this mishap and requesting them for an extension ?
