That's a good point. 58% of R2 applicants were interviewed last year (on GMATClub at least) and only 16% so far this year. I highly doubt people just aren't reporting it since there are 50+ more applicants than last year or all of our applications were markedly worse.

Let's hope for the best.

Not sure whether this is any indication or not - As at a minute ago, there are 4 remote interview slots in total on the 6th, 12th and 13th March. There's still hope!

Just registered for my skype interview, after my alumni interview got cancelled, 2 more slots are left. One on 13th and one on 12th.

Good luck to those still pending interviews! I'm going crazy waiting for a decision from the ADCOM. The one good thing about a late interview slot is that the awkward wait period is that much shorter.

For those who got interview invites, did your application status changed to "under review"?

I didn't see a change of status on my account. I only knew about the interview after receiving the email invitation.

The waiting period is definitely making me restless! At least you have two WLs in your pocket.

How does Darden compare to Fuqua for consulting placement? Especially m/b/b? Does anyone have any thoughts or info on this?

WL is a small, small consolation prize. We are closing in on the finish line, fortunately. I'm getting anxious to plan my move back Stateside.

Yeah agreed..WL helps no one only it increases the complications of an already ailing patient to an extent !!
Its not a cure for sure. A life support ?? I doubt.. :(

So how do they handle acceptances? Do they call the day before the 20th, or something? Anyone know from previous years?

Last year, they tried to call as many people as they could the day before decisions were released. Not everyone that was admitted received a call (international students present the biggest challenge). On the official release date, I received an email between midnight and 2 am Charlottesville time telling me to check my status online.

To those commenting on it being quiet, note that we had a pretty bad storm come through town yesterday and the entire school was without power and closed for the day. I'm not saying that's the reason for silence from Admissions, but it may be a contributing factor. I know people that got invites about two weeks before the deadline and had to scramble to come down to grounds (and were accepted) so don't give up hope yet.
