Do folks know if Darden does an employment background check (similar to some of the other b-school program)? If so, have any admits received any notification of the process yet? Thanks in advance!


As far as I know, all background checks have already been done prior to admission (perhaps only a selected few were checked because I know no one called up my recommenders [yet]). I called the admission office a while back to inquire about this and the lady told me that there's no post-admission background checks performed.

As of right now I'm going to Darden. The only thing that would change that at this point would be if I got off Wharton's WL.

How about you Bakfed?

Did anyone on here apply in R3? I am late in the game but applied in March. Does anyone know how many people historically apply in R3 vs. the other rounds and if the acceptance rate is much lower? Thanks!

I don't think round 3 information is published but tradtionally speaking, it's quite a smaller pool of applicants than the other two rounds. Since you've already applied, just hope for the best =D

Thanks! I made the decision late to try for this fall instead of next fall and I REALLY want to be at Darden, so we will see. After the fact, I'm panicking about what being in the third round will do to my chances, so fingers crossed. If anyone else applied in R3 please make yourself known!! Would love to compare notes.

Fellow waitlisters, I have had two brief conversations with Darden after waitlist. Both seem to point towards a Ding. What were your experiences like?

One with Adcom and another with a student. Nowhere did I get the vibe that "Hey you still stand a chance'' or "send any good updates you have".

My guess - Darden admits fewer than other schools from waitlist. Or they might be talking about my specific case. Havig said that let us hope we still stand a chance. It is possible they want to discourage applicants from hanging onto false hope.

Did you send any updates? I sent some work related updates and just got a reply saying that the updates have been added to my file. I didn't receive any details about the waitlist status.

yet to send. will send one in two weeks. Dont be discouraged with what I said. They may very well be talking abt my specific case. Adcom member told that they will start looking at WLs mid may and they will try to fill the class with same profile of candidate who declined.

yea it wasa very hard choice, i loved darden but for me and my wife, wharton is a much better location and too much to pass up on

we are both from nj and i have been gone for 5 years since college - ranger training, combat, training cycles, and the 6 hr drive to darden would mean we would see our parents/siblings like 2x per semester

now we will only be 1.5 hrs away

lots of factors but yea, wharton is where im heading, it was definitely not easy though

did not get any money but only got 1/3 scholarship from darden

with GI bill, I already had a small money advantage and deployments gave me lots of time to save up money with no expenses and no taxes and stuff so i will be ok, still need some small loans but we (top15-20 MBAs) will all make it back
