After submitting the Darden Application is there any way to check the Application Status ? Applied in R1.. Can you guys give any headsup when can we start getting Interview invites (or dings) ?

I wasn't able to log into the portal after the deadline passed.
I'm not sure if this is the same for everyone. I'm assuming they'll just handle everything via email from now on.

Well, I'm able to log into Simplicity, but all that it says is Application Submitted (on the Home tab, after loggin in)...

Haven't heard any dates from Darden as to when we should start seeing some action...Eagerly waiting!!

From Darden's admissions blog:
Later this week, the Office of Admissions will begin releasing interview invitations to students residing in the United States. Beginning the first week of November, interview invitations will begin to be released to students residing outside of the United States and in Hawaii. Please keep in mind that we invite applicants for interviews on a rolling basis (as we review the applications) all the way up to the decision deadline date.

Gah, already getting anxious.


I believe interviews are notified through a change in the Simplicity application, as well as an email sent to the registered emailbox.

Submitted my application on Oct 16th. Just curious if anyone know whether interview invite email will say that "you are invited for an interview" or it will say that "your application status has changed, you have to login the application" and then once logged in, then it will tell us whether we have been invited for interview?

The subject of the e-mail will be "Invitation to Interview at Darden" hehe It is a unique school for many reasons!

That's right, it's an email with the subject "Invitation to Interview with Darden". If I'm not mistaken the online application status does not change.

Thanks for the updates folks. Does anyone know what determines the order in which applications are reviewed? FIFO??

I fear I will be 100% unproductive at work until I hear whether I've been rejected or invited to interview...


I can almost guarantee you that FIFO is not in play here. Best thing to do is to find something else to do to occupy this waiting time. I know that feeling, but theres really nothing anyone can do at this point.

regarding the FIFO question, I think it is like first in first added to the "pile", then those randomly pulled from the pile first will be reviewed and notified first. So if you apply way earlier than the the deadline, while the pile is still small than the FIFO effect is stronger. Otherwise its pretty much random.

If the invites do go out tomorrow they will probably go out in the second half of the day via email. Probably around 5 pm. That's my experience from last year. So no reason to check your email every 5 seconds before say 3 30. Then by all means stay glued to your screens and abandon all! :)

Invited to interview at Darden!

Is anyone interested in doing a group chat sometime soon to share ideas on how we are all preparing for the interview?
