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!

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.

I am in! Just got the call from Sarah Neher (who I interviewed with) :-D FYI, it was an unknown number (in case you usually don't answer those). Now I can stop being the jerk with their phone on at work.

D.C. based- don't stress, I think they still have PLENTY of calls to make

Got the acceptance call around 10:30 CST!! Very excited to get the call, but disappointed to hear their admitted student weekend is the same weekend as Tuck's. A bit surprising given the similar culture of the two schools would likely draw similar applicants.

Indian applicant.. interviewed on 12th march.. its already 10 PM here, no updates.. looking bleak now!! :(


I have a feeling they are yet to start calling Indian applicants (?)
None of the "admitted" updates are from Indian applicants so far, unless I missed someone.

Do we know if someone (Indian applicant in India) outside this forum heard from Darden yet?



BTG reported one accepted.. That's the only update I have seen by an indian candidate!!


Haha that was me...
