Good to know about the grading stuff. I'm a bit shy in large groups, but I guess I'm going to have to amp it up for class :).

How do you generally spend your weekends? Is it a lot of prepping for the next week or do you get a good amount of personal down time and time to socialize? And if classes go through Thursday, is Friday usually filled with career oriented stuff?

anyone get any scholarship love from darden?
there's a businessweek article ("Full-Tuition Fellowships from Top B-Schools") that says that almost 20% get a full ride. is this correct?


Darden showed me some love, but not a full ride. When I interviewed I was told about a third of people get scholarships and of these about a third are full rides.

Other sources of full tuition reimbursement may be through the Consortium as well as the GI Bill, which if I'm not mistaken fully covers MBA tuition at state schools. Others are likely better equipped to speak to that, however.

I likewise got a not-full-ride scholarship. It's the only of my admits to offer, so it certainly complicates my decision!

Hi bakfed, I've another small question for you (I'm sorry if it's stupid). In facebook group, a lot of SY students are selling their furniture etc. I would prefer to get some things from SY students than shipping it half the way across the country.
I understand that entire class of 2012 must be planning to leave by June, but I'm (or most of class 2014) not moving to C'ville mid or late-July. So, how can anyone buy this stuff even if one is interested..?


That's a great question (not a stupid one) and the answer is really it depends. Understand that some folks may be out in May, while others may be in June or even July (depending on when they signed their annual lease), so it really is case by case. But you're right in that it does become a bit harder logistically and I would personally recommend you to reach out to the second-years who've posted (with items that are in your interest) and see if you guys can work something out. If yes, great; if not, at least you've tried.

And sorry if my answer isn't satisfactorily. Another recommendation would be to see who you know is close by (or close enough to Charlottesville) who can store these items temporarily until you arrive. Honestly, if it's something that's not too big, I'll be more than happy to store it for you, but from what you're asking, I'm guessing you're probably referring to the big-ticketed items, such as bed and sofa, in which case I probably can't simply because I lack the mode of transportation to move them.

bakfed, thank you so much, that's so nice of you to offer! But you're right, I'm interested in study desk, book shelves and such. Bulky things which would be cheaper to get in VA than having them moved from NE.

About moving, what is the best time to get to C'ville. I've noticed some networking events are scheduled in mid-July. Would last week of July or early August be too late..?


You'll totally be fine by last week of July or early August. Obviously, the later you get to Charlottesville, the less time you'll have to finalize everything. But you really don't need more than a week to finalize everything. I personally arrived at Charlottesville early August and I was able to get up and running before pre-matriculation courses started.

In for R1.

Does anyone feel like the essay is more like an essay question on the mid-term exam for some international business course? Moreso than an application essay?

Should we start another thread for analysis of this question?
I'm curious about the degree to which we can/should tie in our own experiences in our analysis of business leadership in an increasingly globalized economy.

Hey all,

I'm still iffy on whether i'll eventually apply to Darden, but I thought it was worth mentioning that I called Darden's admissions office and was told there will be more essay questions later.

That being said, I agree it sounds more like a mid-term essay question than an admissions question. I'm not a huge fan of it.

I feel there should be a personal connection to the perspectives as we are asked for OUR perspectives on leadership... but the second part- linking globalization to a leadership perspective is the true depth of the question.
There are so many ways to look at the scenario... My Questions are :
- Should we be looking at leadership at workplace from firms top management`s view
or the leadership at my level of work execution
- the effect of globalization on the firm which indirectly affects me OR the direct influence of globalization on my views?

Thanks a lot for the input MrTunes -
The essay question is well in tune with Dardens Tag line "The Darden School of Business improves society by developing principled leaders for the world of practical affairs" :idea:
