Anyone else having an extremely difficult time getting their extracurricular information to save in the online form? I enter the information in, then save it and move on. If I move back to page I just saved, my information is wiped out. Curious if you guys are having the same problem.

Same problem here...I'm trying to put in my basic personal information and whenever I try to save it it tells me I haven't filled out the areas that are filled out.

Yeah, I don't know if this is a new system or what it is, but I'm starting to hope there's a paper application out there I can fill out instead...

Check out this video blog post by Darden's Admissions Director, Sarah Neher: http://blogs.darden.virginia.edu/admiss ... available/

She explains that it *is* a new computer system and that they are still trying to work out the kinks. FWIW, I plan on waiting about a week before trying to begin to submit mine.

Nice, well I submitted an issue to Tech Support so hopefully my misery can help some of you out. Just an FYI to everyone, when you're filling out your extracurriculars and any other text boxes, once you press save go back and look through it with a fine tooth comb. I've noticed its truncating some bullet points that aren't even at the end, but right in the middle, for no apparent reason. Really review it and ensure your stuff didn't get cut out.

The issue with the activities free text box truncating has now been resolved. They are very quick in their responses and very helpful, just an FYI.

Mine went through fine after I saved my recommenders contact info in the application system, have you checked w/ your recommenders to see if they got it?

I'm having all sorts of technical issues with my application. I tried to save and it deleted my info, I tried to save a second time to move on to education and it says I have to mark what my preferred address is, which I have done. Argh! What address did you all send your technical issues to? Thanks all!

Pulled this off of a random site called essaylabb, not sure how reputable it is but it looks pretty standard:

We require two recommendations which address the questions asked on our Recommendation Form. Additional recommendations may be submitted, but they should offer additional and valuable insight. Generally, work-related recommendations are more valuable than academic-related recommendations.

It is important both to applicants and to us that we know as much as possible about their aptitude and capacity for graduate business study.

1. How long have you known the applicant and in what capacity?

2. What unique qualities does the applicant possess that lead you to endorse his/her application to the Darden School? Cite specific examples in support of this evaluation.

3. Please comment on this applicant's experience and/or potential to mentor or manage others.

4. In what areas does the applicant need the most improvement?

PMK157, thanks for the info!

Is anyone else a bit concerned by the 77%? :shock: Kind of scary to think that almost a quarter of the class didn't have a job at graduation.

Do we need to convert our undergrad GPA to the US 4.0 scale? If yes, what convertion method do we use?

In the online application form, there is a data field for 'GPA' but there is no mention of what grade scale to use in the reporting. Also, nothing is said in the Darden website (or maybe I just missed it?).
