Am I crazy, or did they say over the phone that we'd receive the packet tomorrow (meaning 12/19)?

I understood it will be going out tomorrow

The checklist says the security deposit deadline ($1000) is Feb 28,2013. Most R2 decisions will still be pending by then. Putting 1000$ down the drain is a regular phenomenon here ? Someone shed some light.

Lol - What I'd say is that you need to hedge your bets and hence look at the $1,000 in that light. If the schools you really want to goto over Darden are in R2, you would have heard from them on an interview in Jan. That will give you some indication. YET, you can never be sure of where you'll end up, which means you will have to put down the$1,000 else risk losing Darden as well.

Logic has it most people apply to their most favorite programs in the earliest round, so paying down a deposit for a program you were admitted in R1 and going to a R2 school is hardly a regular phenomenon.

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.

I got the waitlist email...anyone have any experience with the Darden waitlist and what the potential yield from it is? Given that only 54% or so of admits matriculate according to the stats on this site I have to believe its possible to still get in....

Admitted! Got the call yesterday morning around 10:45am EST. I'm not usually a night owl, but I was too excited to sleep last night until I got the final letter. What a sweet video they included!

My stats: 24/2 years WE (finance--investment management)/F/Boston/710/3.81 from a top-30 small liberal arts college

A scholarship would be icing on the cake, but as others have said, I didn't get any info about it in my letter in the online portal. I think the adcom member who called mentioned something about scholarships/financial aid being in the official letter, but to be honest, I sort of blanked out after "congratulations!"

I think there's a good chance I'll attend, but it's tough to say until I hear back from other schools (Darden was the first decision I received).

Who will I see in February for Day@Darden??!

Congratulations!

I agree completely. Very good chance I'll attend as well, but unfortunately scholarships do play a big role in my financial situation. Darden was also my first decision received.

I probably won't be able to make Day@Darden due to work. But in your phone call, did they also mention Darden Days later on next year? I blanked out a little, too, over the excitement, haha, but I thought I heard them say that Darden Days attendance is required?

Congrats to you too! Last year it looks like they had the Day@Darden on a Friday in February (same as for 2013) and then another 2 consecutive Darden Days (a Friday and a Saturday) in April. I'm pretty sure my adcom caller did not say it was mandatory, but I could be wrong--any current students want to weigh in?

I know what you mean about scholarships--since I haven't been working very long, I have very little saved so a scholarship would weigh heavily in my decision. Hopefully we will receive (more) good news to this end in our letters!

I'm planning on being there in February. I still have two more schools to hear back from, but I really love Darden. I know it is going to be tough because of the first-year workload, but it seems like everyone really loves it there and, as cliche as it sounds, I think the school's strengths and culture fit really well with my career desires and personality, so I know I would be really happy there.

No clue about the number of people on the waitlist. And yeah, I going to Tuck unless Sloan admits me with big money thrown in. Good luck for Cornell! Hope you get through.
