Does anyone know of any instances where Darden has not interviewed and accepted an applicant? I've done several Darden events including local alumni events as well as the open house, but I have not been invited for an interview. On top of this I was able to get an answer from admissions if my app was included for Round 1 review as one of my reviewers submitted a bit late.
I've seen people w/o invite getting waitlist, and then interviewed for an admit at Darden.


The Q&A on the Darden admissions blog says the opposite.

Question: Can you be placed on the waitlist if you do not interview? And if so, would you then need to interview to be admitted from the waitlist?

Answer: You cannot be placed on the waitlist without an interview.

Weekly Darden chats said the same. You'll only be waitlisted with an interview.

I was on that chat that Krudget mentioned. I was also on the chat today and I think they are pretty close to being done with interview invites. So long Darden, it's been a fun ride.

Is it wrong for me to assume that Darden places less weight on the essays as compared to numbers and resume? I'm saying this because theres only 1 essay (which does not address career goals) and no optional essay option.

There is only one "essay", however if you go through the application online, there are 2 other text boxes stuck in there for "short answer" questions - one is about your contribution to your learning team and the other is about your career goals. There is also a short answer text box for "additional info" at the end (optional essay)

Somehow, I never feel the wait difficult. The difficult part is that 'moment of truth' when you log in, check status and face the decision.

All the best today people. Anyone knows if scholarships will be announced in the call?


Previous years scholarship info has been mentioned only in the acceptance letter that you get in the mail. I'm not sure if it's the same this year though.

Best of luck to everyone!! The wait is so hard right now.

Hahahaha... I thought I was the only one who felt that was CRUEL!!! But, they also did that during the first week interviews went out. I guess they do that because THEY KNOW you will open that email, otherwise... NO EXCUSES for such a cruel email.

Anyone has received the call?? Please let us know!!!

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 :)

Bad time for sending such emails!! :P

I thought "omg I MUST be getting in if they sent me this today! because otherwise that email would be cruel." then I saw that it was generic and even included the Round2 deadline. wahh :roll: :cry:
