Congrats to you both. Have any non-consortium applicants gotten in? I wonder if we are on a different timeline.

I'm also in as of yesterday through the Consortium, wooo!

Congrats everyone :) I took the same path of correspondence and feedback as a poster above coincidentally, I was very impressed with Darden's adcom committee and how helpful they have been through the entire WL process. I can't say the same for a few other schools I got WL-ed at.

Me too and I feel the same about other Wls... So much so that I may decline the other offers because of the way they handled the WL and my acceptance.

I didn't apply through the Consortium to Darden although I am a minority. I think I may get the membership. They did tell me that most people who will get admitted would be coming off by May 3rd so...... get in their ear if you haven't.

Ok good to know. I've been in touch with them and I sent in an update but I didn't know about the May 3rd date. Thanks for the info.

Got the good news yesterday but will be turning it down in favor of another program. Hopefully this means good news for someone else!

Question - if you were waitlisted round 2 and haven't heard anything today, on the round 3 deadline, I am assuming that means they will just continue to hold me on the waitlist? Any body in a similar situation or hear of anything today who was waitlisted as well?

I already sent them updates last week and had been in touch with Haley. Perhaps I should call today anyway? Wouldn't want to be overkill at this rate since Haley and I have been corresponding over the past few months since the round 2 notification date.

Did others get the email from Darden adcom yesterday regarding the waitlist? I copied part of it below.

Quote:
We wanted to update you that we have narrowed the waitlist significantly, and you are among those remaining at this point. We believe that you have much to contribute to the business school classroom...


Is this something they sent to everyone? Did they actually ding some people off the waitlist? Or was it just narrowed due to those that were accepted last week?

Got the same e-mail too. Don't know what to make of it. I asked for an ETA, but they mentioned they can really only tell by June. I think I'll be dropping out of the wait list if I don't hear any updates by this week or the next. I'll try again next end of this year. Don't think I want to keep everything else on hold for much longer.

Yeah I hate being in this holding pattern. I've already paid a deposit to another school, so I'm just trying to hold off signing my apartment lease as long as I can, hoping to hear back from Darden in the meantime as they are my top choice. Really wish we could get some sort of ETA.

Yeah I got that email as well...I'd be curious to know if anyone got a notification that they were taken off/dinged, but won't be surprised if we never hear about it

Anyone on the waitlist using the feedback call as an opportunity to gain insight on where he/she stands?

Thought I'd be a good GMAT Clubber and let you guys know I got into Darden yesterday! Sorry I didn't post sooner - went straight out and partied after work, but I know what it's like to be in your shoes, wanting to know what happens decision wise exactly when it happens. No cell service, but got a voicemail around 4 PM.

Hang in there. They sent that e-mail about narrowing down the waitlist for a reason so believe it.

Very happy for you. Are you matriculating or waiting for other WLs?
