Just out of compulsion, I had pulled some of the GC data to look at statistics for schools where I was interviewing. I was looking to see if there was a demonstrable difference between the students who had been accepted vs. denied, ONLY in the population of those who received interview invitations. For the most part, the students who had been accepted tended to have (very) slightly higher GPA's & GMAT scores. Again, very slight (739 vs. 737 at CBS as an example).

However, looking at GC data for Darden, weird things happened. Here's the breakdown of those who had been invited to interview and have received a final verdict:

Admitted (n=29): 713 GMAT, 3.50 uGPA
Denied (n=7): 734 GMAT, 3.70 uGPA

So... what do you think is behind this (seemingly) counter-intuitive information? Just small sample size noise? Rejection by UVA for those students who were applying to Darden as a 'safety' and as a result, didn't have a compelling interview? Just curious.

Also, bonus data. WL with Interview (n=16): 720 GMAT, 3.10 GPA

Probably just sample size... Have you tried to take this same info from past years? I think those probably have more data. Also, if you get from past years, you could take the sample of people that didn't update their profiles (unknown final decision) as those probably didn't get accepted too, because I would say that you usually don't want to come back to the forum to say you did not pass...

Hope that helps.

Did they send you an email. I have logged into my application several times but could find the status of my application.

They only send them through email. The application status won't change until the 25th, even if you are invited! Best of luck!

Anyone know how competitive R3 is for Darden. I'm looking to apply in R3. I have a 680 GMAT, 3.3 GPA, great w/e, and great EC. Most likely retaking GMAT and looking to get 700+

Why don't you give a try? At least you can get the feedback if you fail.
However, you should give school a reasonable reason why you apply so late.

Darden is giving out admission decision - little nervous.
In these recent days, I read anything about Darden (forum, blog...) and watched many Sara 's video. I fall in love with Darden. If Darden is a girl, I will marry her. I truly wanna spend my next two years here.

I see someone R2 updating their status in recent days and even today.
I checked old topic that Darden could send decision a little bit earlier than announced.

And I never even got an interview. Guess it is time to let go of that last glimmer of hope and start looking towards next year.

Good luck to everyone who interviewed!

Source? It may be Consortium-related.

It is. They called Consortium applicants the day after the Consortium draft. Usually for the general application, admitted applicants get a call the day before Decision Day.

@JDMBA2012 - so if you applied via the Consortium, and didn't get a call this past week, should one assume they've been dinged?

No, I think they call some, if not all, Consortium applicants who received a scholarship. Consortium applicants who only received the membership will be called on the 24th. The idea is to call those who received scholarships as soon as possible after the draft in case they are considering offers from other schools.
