Haven't really heard anyone post from the West Coast yet so they could still be calling. Also, they said that statuses would be changing at midnight on your application online

Got the call today at 10:53 a.m. Central.

HOORAY!

It was the adcom member I interviewed with. She said that they weren't sure when we'd find out about scholarships, but the scholarship committee met last week. She said that she hopes it will be in the update tonight at midnight, but again, she isn't sure. But she said it should be in the official offer letter in the mail.

She also told me about some other things like Darden days and another meet and greet type event before that, but honestly, I was too busy flipping out with excitement, I can't remember what all she said, haha.

For anyone interested, my last name starts with a W.

My stats:
GMAT 700
GPA 3.82
female
Asian-American
unusual (non-business) background



I agree, I didn't really follow everything either because I was so excited. Did anybody else catch what the next steps are? I remember her saying we would be getting a folder in the mail and she mentioned something about an admit weekend (in Feb. I think). Anything else?

The admit letter on the status page makes it sound like it will all be in our snail mailed packet.

"This mailing includes your financial aid information, as well as a welcome gift."

I don't see any other information about scholarships.


Yes, the adcom member that called me today said it, if anything, would be in the mailed packet

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


You must be crazy.... :P

But that would be nice!

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.

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.

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....

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!

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).

I guess I am missing it, but what video was included? Was it on the portal?
