thanks for sharing. I, too, am quite surprised by the (nominal) drop in the average GMAT score...

Hey guys, I am totally stumped by the Darden essay topics this year (especially the 2nd one)! Does anyone have some extremely good resource describing what Darden wants to see in these 2 essays. A little help would be much appreciated :)

Also can anyone please let me know whether Darden requires the official GMAT score to reach them before the deadline (or will the unofficial score report do and the official score can be submitted if and when accepted)?

A quick search on Darden's website will answer your question.

I'm waiting on recs to come in, and working on my essays. Need to make some minor tweaks to my resume and finish the online application and residency form (once broken link is fixed). I really need to pick this up if I'm going to make the R1 deadline!

Same for me. I emailed the Darden office about it last week and got no response.

Don't go to Darden expecting to find a girl! Jeez. Charlottesville is a sausagefest ;)

Yes, I know 29% isn't that much lower than 33% or whatever other top schools are.

EDIT: Did a little research. Darden is low on females, but out of our ultra elite, elite and trans elite clusters, it is not the lowest. Cornell, CMU, Emory, and UNC are all lower.

[Reveal] Spoiler: Click for female data
Harvard 36%
Stanford 34%
Wharton 40%
Sloan 34%
Booth 35%
Kellogg 34%
Stern 34%
Columbia 33%
Ross 33%
Johnson 28%
Anderson 31%
Duke 38% (supposedly… up from 22% in 2007)
UC Berkeley 31%
Yale 37%
Tuck 33%
Darden 29%
McCombs 32%
Marshall 27%
Emory 29% (down from 39 the previous year)
Tepper 29% (up from 21% two years ago)
Kenan-Flagler 27%

I have a question regarding the second essay. When it asks for a global event, does that have to be something catastrophical? My main concern is that a global event took place within my company (a global-pharma) that affected and cascaded down to all branches of my company around the entire world. This change has definitely shaped my form of leadership in some way. Does this count as a "global event"?

Think it could work with the proper context on the event. Even an administrative policy change at a global company can be significant if portrayed properly

Are you all putting college internships in the employment section?

Most other apps ask for it, but it looks like Darden only wants full time. Can anyone confirm or deny this?

Thanks!
