I had a doubt regarding the Essay Topic. "Share your thought process as you encountered a challenging work situation or complex problem. How did this experience change your perspective? "

"challenging work situation or complex problem" - Does this mean it has to be a work situation or can personal examples be used?

It can be a personal situation. Someone asked about it on the latest admissions chat they held. Check out their admissions blog for the details.

I just realized the instructions on the Darden application regarding recommendations are a little vague. For reapplicants, are we supposed to submit only one recommendation (since our previous app had the requisite 2), or are we supposed to submit 3 all new recommendations?

I believe it will be one "NEW" application. There is no point re submitting the old one. You could get that checked with the admission staff.

I remember having this same question when I was applying. The Darden application page, from what I recall, is fairly different from those of other schools and not very easy to navigate. I don't know if they've changed the system for this year, but I couldn't find those rec questions before submitting them either.

Do reapplicants need to write an essay explaining how are they better this time? or is it just 1 extra recommendation that needs to be submitted.

One of my recommend-er is out of town. He will be able to submit the recommendation only on Tuesday/Wednesday. Can I still go ahead and submit rest of my application for EA round i.e. by Monday? Would they consider it part of EA round or move it to the next round? If you have been through similar experience or are a member of adcom/current student, please do help.

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.
