Darden (Virginia) 2013 - Calling All Waitlisted Applicants! [#permalink] New post 19 Mar 2013, 21:37
I along with a whole bunch of people was waitlisted today to UVA Darden, so I decided to start this thread for mutual support and assistance. Please share any advice that you may have and I especially encourage anyone with firsthand knowledge on how to navigate Darden's waitlist to please post here! I was surprised that noone started one after Round 1, but considering how busy our page is I figured I should start one. Feel free to use the thread to ask and answer any WL questions. We can support each other through the waiting.

Let's all work together to get off that waitlist and get accepted!

Thanks for starting the thread Massapplyer.

Does anyone have any historical data regarding numbers/percentages accepted off the wait list?

Good luck everyone.

Waitlisted in R2. I emailed the admissions office for waitlist info/timelines and they responded saying I might not here anything about decisions until after May at least. Also they asked if I considered retaking the GMAT. Retaking the GMAT is the last thing I want to do now! So probably going to be asking to move off their waitlist soon...

Good luck everyone!

I've come up with a small list of resources for those people who got waitlisted at UVA Darden. I hope this helps:

Official Waitlist FAQs: http://forms.darden.virginia.edu/admissions/waitlist/WaitListFAQ.htm

Official Blog on Waitlist: http://blogs.darden.virginia.edu/admissions/tag/waitlist/

Forum on One Student Trying to get in: http://gmatclub.com/forum/how-leverandon-is-going-to-get-off-of-the-waitlist-at-darden-75302-20.html

Short Article from Businessweek on Navigating the Waitlist: http://www.businessweek.com/bschools/blogs/mba_admissions/archives/2009/05/waitlist_strate.html

I sent a note in already and will be following up. I too would be interested if anyone has any information or statistics on people getting off the waitlist.

Hi guys,

Thank You for starting this thread. A got a waitlist notification tonight and wanted to be sure that status update with "accept" mode is all we had to to so far. Is it like that? As there was no feedback emailed after that.

I think that's it. I didn't get anything else either.

My Waitlist Success Story:

I am a Rd 2 Consortium Applicant and just got off the waitlist. I wanted to share my experience with others on the forum so that they can possibly see how to improve their chances to get off the waitlist also. First, I emailed my interviewer and CCed darden@virginia.edu immediately stating Darden was my number one choice, I would attend if accepted, and asked if there was anything I could do to improve my chances to get off the waitlist. Approximately a week later, I received an email directing me to Haley who manages the waitlist. She forwarded me to the Consortium Manager Kellie. Kellie and I setup a time to discuss my application a week later. We discussed the application and she told me a few things to discuss in a supplementary essay of 250-500 words explaining basically my inspiration for getting an MBA, why I wanted to pursue management consulting, and how Darden fit into this. She explained that they were reviewing applications in an hour, so if I could turn around an essay in that time, it would be included in the discussion. Needless to say, I wrote a short essay and submitted it. I followed up the next day and she told me that they would reconvene and make decisions on Monday (yesterday) and I would hear back today. Yesterday morning I dropped her another short note expressing my excitement and thanks for her help in the process. Today I was accepted and she told me all of my communications played a part in to getting off the waitlist so quickly. If anyone has any questions, please let me know and I would be more than happy to help. Today is a great day! :-D

Here's my timeline:
Submitted: 01/06/13
Invited to interview: 02/01/13
Interviewed with adcom (on-campus): 02/26/13
Waitlisted: 03/20/13

Did you still get the Consortium? Or any $? I hear it's possible, but not probable.

Either way, congrats. You are second person I heard of to get membership after WL. It is good to know that I may still get that too.

Hey all! I just wanted to let you know that I sent in a note today cancelling my admission to Darden (I had deposited in Round 1). This is a bittersweet decision for me because I really loved Darden and the people I met, but was accepted to Yale round 2 and it just felt like the right decision for me to go there.

Hopefully my decision helps create some waitlist movement! Good luck!

Congrats on making that decision. I know it is hard one for a lot of people to make, but it has to be done. Hopefully, I can get your slot :)

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.
