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. :)

Are you really applying to 17 schools!?

Just nine thus far. Fiancée is applying to residency at 30 programs, which is normal with ERAS. Unfortunately, there's no application service for business school, so yes, I have to fill out way too many independent applications. Medicine has a Couples Match, B-School programs have something similar for significant others, but there is nothing across fields. So yes, it's quite a pain. :lol: However, if one of us gets an incredible opportunity, which I'd certainly classify Darden, we'll take it. Only two years, after all.

Blog update if you didn't see it. And no classes today although I imagine most admissions people read applications from home as well.

"We will begin interviewing Round 1 applicants for the full-time MBA on 15 November. Interview invitations will be extended beginning in early November and applicants may receive an invitation to interview at any point up until the decision release date on 19 December. This is a random process, so the order of interview invitations has no reflection on the quality of the applicant."

It was mentioned that today is the first day Darden will release interview invites. Has anyone heard anything yet?

The blog used the term "early November" as to when they'd start releasing invites, so I'm not holding my breath. Next week, Nov 5-9 seems like a more realistic timeframe.

In the chat a couple of weeks ago, they said 'early November' and 'possibly the end of this week (1st & 2nd), but most likely the week of 5th-9th'.

You guys are right- almost everything has just vaguely said, "early November" but in Sarah Neher's video blog she actually stamped 1 November as the beginning of interview invites. I won't hold them to getting invites out today, just hopeful! (http://blogs.darden.virginia.edu/admiss ... ara-neher/)

Good find! With interviews not starting until Nov 15 (Thursday), it looks like the bulk of applicants are going to be interviewing after Thanksgiving (for on campus, anyway). I don't know if they do interviews on Friday and would be shocked if they did any the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, leaving only 3-4 potential days prior to the break.

Good find, had me hoping to see updates today. Unfortunately I have neither seen nor heard anything, and have not seen any status update on here. I suppose it will indeed be next week that they start processing invites.

Anyone trying to make it down from NYC? I'm scheduling an interview for 11/19 and a $350-400 flight is a tad much. Bus may be the only way to go...

Flights into Charlottesville are always really expensive. Try AMTRAK, apparently it goes right there
