So I'm applying in R2 and I'm wondering how to play the campus visit since I haven't been yet. One option is to go to one of the class visits/campus tours later this month and then presumably do a local interview if invited and if local is an option. Other option is to not visit now and only go to campus if asked for an interview.

My concern is that if I get out there in a few weeks (soonest I could probably get out would be for the 1/30 visit), they may have already taken a look at the application and decided no-go for me and then my visit would be futile. Does anybody know how campus visits play into the process after you've submitted the application? Assuming the further I get from the application submission date the lesser a campus visit would help me.

Thoughts on which strategy would work better or how the visit plays into the admissions process?


Last year, Darden required all students within the United States to interview on Grounds so I am not sure a local interview will be an option, unless this is a change in policy. I personally did not visit Grounds until the day I interviewed so it's not a prerequisite, but that being said visiting beforehand would have helped me write the "why Darden part of my essay." I was fortunate enough that my class visit was before my interview and I could really speak to that.

If you can visit beforehand I would recommend it, but if you have budget constraints or simply can't take off work twice to get down to Charlottesville you should be fine just waiting until your interview.


If based in the US, you are required to go to Charlottesville for your interview. I did not visit prior to the interview and did a class visit in the morning + school tour before an afternoon interview.

Did anybody else on the R1 Waitlist receive a notification asking to update the waitlist response form again? I received it on Jan 8th (Fuqua's results came out that day). Just wondering if the notification was generic or specific to me ....

Got the same e-mail. I updated again but was quite confused. I also e-mailed them to request feedback (based on the blog post from Sara) and haven't heard anything.

Hey guys - I'm looking for some guidance on campus visits. I'm booking a trip to campus on the 28th to do a class visit/lunch with 2YR/tour/etc - the "class visit".

Is it too soon to be going given that I plan to apply R1 this fall (I.e. not this intake period)? What is attire like-I don't see anything on their website so I'm assuming business casual? Are the sample schedules on the visit darden page reflective of what I can expect? As far as the luch with a current student, can anyone share their experiences?

What else should I check out while there?

Thanks!

I showed up in a suit and tie and quickly took the tie off. Most people were in a sport jacket and khakis or slacks, or a suit with an open collar. A good amount of people didn't have a jacket, just button down or sweater. It's very casual.

For mine, there were 1 or 2 panels to start, then First Coffee, then class. Lunch was casual; it was a table with 2 students and a handful of us visiting. After that, a couple more panels and then a wrap up chance to talk to students.

Following up on the lunch, there were 6 or 7 large tables for the visit participants. Each had 2 students and 5-7 visitors.

Thanks for the reply. Did you bring something to take notes with? This is my first campus visit and I'm not sure what to expect.

Also, what were the panels you sat through?

I had a small notebook with me. They also hand out a folder with a lot of information. Panels covered financial aid, career services, academics/case study method overview, a student-only panel (ask anything, no admissions there, etc). I might be forgetting one. They do a campus tour as well.
