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.


I also got a call the day before decisions were released. Good luck!

Never say never, but an admit would seem unlikely at this point unless interviewed. I can't imagine that Darden would still be interviewing folks, as it would leave them precious little time to review the packets prior to making decisions on candidates. I would imagine (*note, pure speculation) that they are already in the process of reviewing and finalizing the R2 admits.

Note: I'm a China applicant as well (American citizen). One of my reviewers missed the submission date by a mile and I still got interviewed, so perhaps there is still hope. I wouldn't get my expectations up, though.

Had my GEMBA interview on 13 march. I applied for the full-time program in R2 but was asked to interview for GEMBA. Anybody else who interviewed for GEMBA as well?

I have had my FT MBA interview few days ago. Liked the experience. After the famous first question it turned into kind of a normal conversation. I didn't keep all my questions till the end and occasionally threw in one or two, so it seemed to me that we really interacted, not just I was interrogated. Very friendly, very nice.

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


I can't say anything about Fuqua, but I can say that when I visited they played up their Consulting Placement statistics. I believe 9 of top 10 Consulting firms interview on campus, and among the Big 3 they are the best per capita--only Wharton and Harvard compare in numbers (about 10 from each top firm), but given that Darden's class is so much smaller--they are the best per capita... Atleast, that's what I was told. I hope that helps.

Wow thank you very much for the insight. That sounds perfect for me. I hope to hear good news next week.

Especially after being dinged at duke.

littleflower: unfortunately that is part of the game. I flew from China to US to visit two programs for last year's cycle, and got dinged w/o interview at both. This year I was interviewed at 4/4. The difference for me was demonstrating leadership and career progression, as the other elements all stayed the same. Don't lose hope. Many programs look favorably on reapplicants.

How are people feeling? I'm nervous as balls. I've had horrible misfortunes lately by getting rejected by 2 schools and wait listed by 3. Darden is my last hope to not get skunked.
