According to BW, the head of admissions is reviewing every application so that may be the reason for some of the delay in hearing from them. I am not sure about whether they will all be out by the end of the week.

I'd say +/- 10% is a general rool. I wouldn't go beyond 330 words for essays 2 and 3.

Already got a "pending interview" status, but I'm just curious. Because of Darden's new "interview by invitation" policy, does it mean that there will be applicants who won't be getting interview invites? I know in the past Darden interviewed 100% of its applicants.

I sure hope they are extending more interview invites...I have yet to receive one.

From what i have read, about 50 to 60% will get interview invites.

essay length [#permalink] New post 26 Dec 2007, 11:17
I intend to apply RD2 and i'm wondering if any of the RD1 candidates who exceeded the essay length limit have heard anything? My "main essay" (the 500 word one) is at 515 right now. I'd prefer the version which is at 545, both of these exceed the 500 limit, by 3% and 9% respectively. What do you guys think, is 515 okay? Could i go up to 545? I dont want adcoms to say i can't follow directions...

deadline time on 3rd? [#permalink] New post 30 Dec 2007, 17:46
Anyone know what time is the deadline on 3rd? One of my recommenders is back only on Jan 3rd. Also, could anyone find a pdf/doc version of the recommendation? I've read that Darden allows them to be faxed along with transcripts so I might just request my mgr to fax.

Thanks.

See the pdf version attached. I would confirm with your admissions representative at Darden about accepting faxes from recommenders.

The 'Optional Essay' is listed after clicking the 'Additional Questions' tab in the application browser. You are given a 150 word limit, although i think mine was 152.

"If there is further information that you believe would be helpful to the Admissions Committee, please provide it below. (150 word maximum) :"

I should be submitting my R2 application shortly. Just reviewing all my essays for the last time. Crossing my Ts and dotting my Is.
