Okay so which jerk in the Admissions Office thought today would be a good day to send out an email about global opportunities at Darden? Did they not know I would have a heart attack when I saw a Darden email in my inbox?!


I thought the same thing. So cruel :) Probably a practical joke they like to pull on nervous applicants :)

Hey, if nothing else, I got that sweet orange-ink pen from when I interviewed. Totally worth it. I'll be removing myself from the WL as I had Darden neck-and-neck with Johnson and this just means I don't have a decision to make.

Interview invites have begun to go out for domestic Round 2 applicants. In the next week or two, international applicants will begin to receive interview invites. Applicants can receive an invitation to interview at any point up until the Round 2 decision release date, which is March 20. Hope this helps and best of luck!


Do they go out in waves or is it now on a rolling basis (like Haas, etc.)?

I had a dream I got my invite and updated my gmatclub profile. My life is officially sad.

Hello,
Nice to see the thread. I am planning to apply to Darden as well. I am just a little surprised on the one essay format of its application process.

Cheers!


There are two mini-essays at the application as well. About career goals (i.e. your elevator speech) and EC activities if I'm not mistaken. But 150 words each. It might have been changed this year though.

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.


Traditionally what I hear from people is that the MBA application(or any academic puruit) pool is at its highest when there is an economic recession. First we saw this in 2000 (dot com bust) then again in 2009 (Super craze for MBA,housing mortgage crisis), but now in 2012 (recession is underway) we see a drop. Sign of an alternate trend? I don't know. So, for #2, I am not really sure people are really holding onto their cards on the MBA. Another factor I would weigh when I apply to an MBA is the age of the applicant. People would have realized by now schools tend to prefer younger candidates than older ones, but then again when you are young you don't seem intutively realise that.

Now that the banks are being scorned at (Wall street protest) I guess people are seeing that it might not be a wise investment to do an "expensive" MBA quitting their full time jobs. I mention banks here because banks are traditionally a primary reason of your skewed thinking on your ROIs of an MBA. If you are not vying for finance you are probably going to have a very strong reason to do it. e.g. Childhood dream, or Consulting (up or out policy).

A friend of mine in LBS MBA concured with my above observation that hardly any recruiters are coming on campus to grab the "golden geese" for finance positions. But then again I know folks getting internships in IBs without any problems from Top US universities such as Duke, Tuck etc. Will they lead you to a full time job? Economics will dictate that.

I anticipate new professions for MBAs in Strategy, Green Energy, Internal consulting practices within companies in Industries etc. Finance will soon be a No-No for future MBAs.

So it's been 9 days since the first reported invite, and now internationals are going out. Should I be concerned as a US applicant with no invite?

hi guys,

I'm attending a class visit this week, prior to my interview later this week.
I'm straight on interview attire, but what should i wear to a class visit? I would default at business casual but don't want to stick out like a sore thumb if everyone wears jeans/tees to class.

Thanks!


I interviewed last Monday along with 15-20 other students. Everyone wore their interview attire all day long...including to the class visit. You likely will not be the only prospective sitting in on your class so a suit will be fine. It seems like the Darden students are pretty used to prospectives wandering around and sitting in on classes.
