Just submitted the application. I was getting errors for some missing details which mostly was incorrect.

When I did hit 'Submit' again, it went through successfully. Keep trying and all the best everyone!!

You usually have a few days that adcoms give your recommenders before you get pushed to the next round. Even still I would push your recommender (as much as possible) to get it in tonight or tomorrow. Also I would call to confirm (after you get a hard commit on when your recommender will submit), in case Darden does not have this buffer. I know most schools do, but it does not hurt to confirm.

Yeah most school do provide some extra time for recos. In Darden's website, however, its clearly mentioned that they strongly encourage the recommenders to submit the reco 1 day prior to the deadline. Wonder why.. I'm still pushing my recommender.. If not then I'd have to call the admissions office and beg them to accommodate my reco which was kinda out of plan for me.. But anyways..

Phew! Reco submitted finally.. 16 minutes late but thats okay, coz I found this from Darden blog:

Quote:
Question: In case our recommenders do not enter their submissions by the due date despite reminders but because of their hectic schedule. Is there a buffer in such cases?

Answer: In order for your application to be considered complete, we need to have received two letters of recommendation. If your recommendation writers are a day or two late, that is okay, but we need them in by the 19th.


Yay! Best of luck to all!

Darden has given some indication on interview notifications on their blog:

Quote:
Question: I just submitted my Round 1 application a few days ago. When will interview invitations start going out from Darden?

Answer: Interview invitations will not start to go out until later next week, but 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.

She answers questions about application requirements, what NOT to do on your application, MBA financing, summer internships, new initiatives at Darden and more.

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.

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.
