Is there no pdf version to have a review before pressing "submit" ??


It doesn't appear so. Once I thought everything was ready, I went ahead and clicked "submit application" thinking that the PDF review option might come on a subsequent page. It doesn't. After hitting "submit" you're required to pay and are done.

On that note, has anyone that already submitted received a confirmation of receipt, on the webpage or via email? I have confirmation that they received my payment, but not my application.

If you log in to your application, it will show your submission status and any pieces missing (recs or transcript, I believe). I also only got a receipt of payment and not any email confirmation that the app was received, but then I logged in and it looks like it is set.

I am also having the problem that my recs may not all be in today--any one have a word on their policy? Any wiggle room or are we just bumped to round 2?

I was wondering the same thing Aeneid. On the payment page, I thought the text mentioned submitting after you paid, but it just took me back to the page with a checklist of things from my app. I can no longer get into my application however, it does say "submitted" so I guess it's ok.

From recent Q&A on admissions blog...

Question: Can recommenders submit recommendations after the deadline?

Answer: Yes; however, you still need to get your application and application fee paid before the deadline to be considered. We just won’t read your application until all recommendations have been received, so make sure you get your recommendation in as soon as you can. If time comes for decisions to be released and we still have not received your recommendation, we will move your application to the next round.


Thanks Dan! This is really helpful. I feel a lot less stressed now!

Yeah, you can watch the video chat on the blog with the admissions director as well. She discusses it. Basically sounds like they understand, but it's better to get them in sooner rather than later so you can be reviewed.

Quoting from online chat transcript

Question: When will Round 1 applicants be notified if they are invited to interview with Darden?

Answer: We do rolling interview invitations beginning 1 November continuing through the middle of December. This is a random process, so the order of invitations does not reflect the quality of each applicant.

Hope this helps.

One thing to note is that last year the first interview invites came out only 10 days after the close of R1. They were very fast last year. I'll be casually checking my email this Thursday.

Just to emphasize, invitations really are done on a random basis throughout the cycle. The timing of your invitation has no bearing on the quality of your application, so please don't freak out! It's really easy to start getting paranoid about not receiving an invite, but just trust the process and try to occupy your thoughts with something that won't make you as crazy ;)

Good luck to everyone who submitted R1!

Thanks Kristie! Hope your exams went well! :)

Any interview tips that you would like to offer to the international students?

I may be wrong, but I couldn't find too many forum topics on Darden interview experiences.

It seems really slow in here and in some of the other "Calling All..." threads compared to past threads. Do you think that means a slower admissions cycle (i.e. fewer applicants?)

I'm just pretty surprised. Compare this to last years where they were already many pages in by this point and we're still on page 3.

Well this could mean one of many things. 1) US MBAs are losing charm against Asian MBAs 2) MBA is losing its worth as a degree vs. a specialist masters as there are no more jobs for generalists anymore. 3) The IR section could have thrown off a lot of people to do GRE vs GMAT and those folks aren't on GMATClub at all.

I just did a quick comparison - In average, there were about twice as many pages in the "Calling All Applicants..." threads this time last year.

Re: #2, I think you're reading too much into it. In my opinion, an MBA is still valuable. However, given the current market condition, a segment of the potential MBA applicants who can afford to delay their application have decided to cling on to their current jobs.

#3 is another plausible explanation.

I hope they say Mid-December as a CYA measure. I would hate being invited in mid December knowing that they'll have about a week to deliberate on my application after my interview is complete!

Have anyone of you heard about any invites/dings? I am curious since this particular thread is not very active.

I spoke with the folks at Darden a couple of days ago. They said they start sending out interview invites for US applicants early November (so late next week at the earliest, but likely the week after). And they start sending out interview invites for international applicants ~15-Nov.

Best of luck, all. :)
