Thank you for using the timer!
We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
4. I know there's a Residence Inn within easy walking distance of Darden. There's also a Best Western that is about 20 minutes by foot. If you stay elsewhere around town, cab service is pretty accessible.
I visited during an open house event and found the Best Western friendly and convenient, if a bit dowdy. They had, by far, the best rate of all the places I checked on within close proximity. (the rate on the phone was much better than that listed on the web) At the time of my visit the place was packed with young women visiting for a tennis tournament.
There are many reasons why one might chose not to drive but I think it would make your trip more convenient to have transportation under your own command. The school is located in a very beautiful area, though not metropolitan, area. I drove down (from IAD) and the drive was quite pleasant. Large swaths of the countryside resemble a golf course and there were many photogenic bits in the trip. Darden has a dedicated parking lot and provided day passes for visitors, making access to the campus with a car painless. I did not have the chutzpah to schedule a meeting with pelihu and regret I didn't as I much admire many of the thoughtful things he has posted.

3. I can definitely meet with you if you'd like. Generally, there are chances during first coffee (a 1/2 break between our first and 2nd classes each day). I think most visitors have lunch with 2nd year hosts, and there's generally time to meet before lunch. Something else you could do is ask to sit with Section A when you go for your class visit. If you schedule a visit, I'll tell you my name and I think the admissions office will be happy to accommodate.
i got an email saying "recieved"....i guess that means they got everything to begin a review of the application.
My status changed to recieved yesterday ..yours changed on nov 4 ... looks like every school looks at my app. at the very last ...
oh well, i always submit on the last hour ! ...so I guess its me who brings about this eternal desperate wait....
Yup...mine turned to 'Pending' yesterday. Any idea what is the significance of this status? Is it equivalent to Wharton's 'Complete-Round 1'? If it is, then Darden took a really long time (nearly a month) to send the apps to the AdCom.
If it makes you feel any better my app still says received. I called and the adcom said they would be sending it to the committee on Friday. IF I get an invite it's going to come very very late in the cycle.
Final decisions are in: Berkeley: Denied with interview Tepper: Waitlisted with interview Rotman: Admitted with scholarship (withdrawn) Random French School: Admitted to MSc in Management with scholarship (...
